Hi, I'm Conner Habib
My podcast and web series, Against Everyone with Conner Habib is a show about big,deep, scary, dangerous, crazy ideas. You can listen to it on iTunesStitcherSoundcloud, or you can watch it on YouTube!

The overarching idea behind the whole series and my big life project is to make the world a better place for being fully human. 

I've always been interested in multiple disciplines, but our world isn't geared toward cross-disciplinary discussions these days. Instead, we're told to compartmentalize our lives and interests, and to become efficient, streamlined, professional experts.

If you're like me, this doesn't sit right with you.

So let's create a world where we can be sexual and spiritual and political and scientific and artful and funny; a world where we don't have to constantly hide parts of ourselves and our interests away.

Episodes of Against Everyone with Conner Habib come out 3x/month.
Each episode features either:
A. Me talking in a fun and accessible way about pressing or bizarre or hidden or complex issues of our time. Or
B. Me talking with an amazing guest. People who have appeared on the show so far include: Radical journalist Abby Martin, sexologist and co-host of Loveline Chris Donaghue, occultist Gordon White, ChapoTraphouse-er Felix Biederman, mystic comedian Duncan Trussell, and more!

A little more about me:
I've written and published dozens of essays and stories, as well as a comic book. I've performed in nearly 200 gay adult movies; studied science in grad school; taught college English courses; worked for years as a sex workers' rights activist; spoken about adult film, the occult, and philosophy at places like MoMA in New York, Amherst College, and University of Florida. I'm all over the place with my life and pursuits and I love that.

For more on me, watch this goofy little video to see what a bunch of well-known weirdos, like Jon Ronson, Bailey Jay, Babydaddy, Bravo Delta, Sara Benincase, and more, think of me!

HOW MY PATREON WORKS

When you sign up, you get access to all the benefits already in progress! That could include meetings with me, membership to the Conner Habib Book Club, previews at stuff I'm writing, pop up Q&A sessions, video postcards, an extra episode each month, and more!

You don't have to be into the web series to participate in the Patreon. Maybe you just want the skype chat or the video postcards. Or maybe I just made you feel good at some point and you want to give back. All good!

So!
Let's create a new culture. Let's hang out. Let's talk about things we care about. Let's be ourselves.

Let's do everything we've ever cared about, all at once.

Thanks. Love!

At this level, the show becomes my job, along with writing. Do you have any idea how amazing that is? It's really amazing. I'm excited just typing this.
This means my rent, living costs, student loan debts, and all the other aspects of Conner-is-not-luxurious-he-just-lives-in-LA-and-has-some-debt aspects of my life are covered!
It also means I can do four episodes each month, and that I can start adding more visually interesting stuff to episodes of AEWCH. On top of that, I can start making clips of each episode to introduce new viewers and present bite-sized moments of each ep.
