About Dana Hunter's Unconformity

Hello, and welcome to Dana Hunter's Unconformity!

I'm Dana Hunter (she/her pronouns), and I'll be your guide to the good science of rock-breaking and beyond. In videos, photographs, illustrations, and informative posts, we'll go to some of the most remarkable places on Earth together. We'll travel to distant worlds and find that, despite the name, the earth sciences don't stop with Earth. We'll listen to the stories of seemingly dull stones, and find they have incredible tales to tell. We'll review some entirely awesome books. We'll use cute animals to illustrate concepts in the earth sciences. And we'll delve into the past to explore the enduring contributions of women in the geosciences.

Of course, there's more! We'll deconstruct creationist curriculum and ideas. We'll defend science education from deniers and theocrats. We'll face down fascism, plus challenge the bigotries and biases that hinder human flourishing and scientific discovery. It's never been more important to stand up for STEM.

Are you ready to savor – and change – the world with me?

I've been a blogger since 2008 and a writer for half of forever, so you may already know me from Rosetta Stones on the Scientific American blog network, the various incarnations of En Tequila Es Verdad, or my Really Terrible Bible Stories books. We may be meeting for the first time. Either way, it's great to see you! And I hope you'll become one of the Unconformitariat.

There are many ways to become an Unconformist, and all of you will get benefits and content that are only available to patrons. If you're looking for early access to posts, becoming an Unconformist for $5 per month will give you the key. If you're looking for more, including exclusive behind-the-scenes content, access to special offers, free ebooks and artwork, a snazzier title, and more, please see which of the higher tiers is right for you.
Joining me as an Unconformist will ensure I can provide more and better content to you, including more polished video of some of the most inspiring geology in the world. Your support will allow me to buy necessary equipment, take field trips, complete research, attend professional meetings, and accommodate special requests from readers and viewers. Together, we'll be able to donate to earth science educators and students. And your financial support will allow me to finally complete that Mount St. Helens field guide I've been working on for years!
Click through to the tiers and see what suits you. Then pick up your rock hammer and come with me on the adventures of a lifetime.
