About Joe Scott

Hi, I'm Joe Scott. Thanks for visiting my Patreon page.

I assume if you've come here you're familiar with my channel and what I do, but here's a little about me for anybody that's curious.

I run the YouTube channel Answers With Joe, where I cover science, technology, philosophy, and the weird and mysterious. I like to think of my videos as the appetizer to a subject - just a little fun and interesting something to light a spark of curiosity in people. To add a layer of interestingness to your world.

I came from a filmmaking and comedy background, with about 15 years of working in advertising as a copywriter. So I'm not an actual scientist, nor do I claim to be. But I guess I'm what you might call a science enthusiast. I grew up with posters of the Space Shuttle on my wall and wanted to be an astronaut and all that.

I was a goofy little nerd from way back.

I got serious about YouTube in 2014, when I vowed to release a video every Monday no matter what. And I've done so ever since (with the exception of a recent break). And thanks to that consistency, I've been able to grow the channel to over a million subscribers, and now have a team of 5 people working to bring these to you every week.

So why support this channel here on Patreon?

Well, you get perks. Perks are nice. Everything from seeing videos before everyone else, to access to our Patreon-specific Discord server to monthly zoom calls and livestreams.

As for how your support helps the channel, as I mentioned, it's not just me anymore, I have a whole team helping to make this happen. Your help supports the entire team and, as Patreon grows, makes it possible to help grow the team further, allowing me to do bigger, better, more professional videos.

Supporting on Patreon also frees me from the confines of the dreaded YouTube algorithm, meaning I make videos for YOU, not to make some arbitrary view count to satisfy a supercomputer in California. Not to mention it gives me the freedom to expand outside of YouTube to create other types of content, like books, short films, and even features in the future.

Plus there's a really cool community of like-minded people that has formed around the channel here in Patreon. One of my favorite parts of doing this is getting to know the community and joining the discussions that people are having. You can join them too!

And from a more philosophical standpoint, whether you're supporting me or anybody else on Patreon, you're playing an active part in putting something great into the world. We've entered a new media paradigm, free of gatekeepers, where if you want something to exist, you can support it directly and make it happen. The fact that you're even here and reading this says that you care about being engaged and making things happen in the world. And I want to applaud you for that.

So, again, thanks for being here. Take a look around and if you want to chip in, I greatly appreciate it. If not, or it's not in your budget right now, it's okay. We're still friends.

Cheers!
