Carry the One Radio needs your support! Right now, our science podcast is funded by the scientists (all Phd graduate students) who run the show. Obviously, this is not sustainable and our lack of funding has limited what we can do. That's why we are asking for your help through this donate-per-episode crowd-funding program. 

What is Carry the One Radio?
Science is one of the most powerful influences in our lives. The medicines we use, the foods we eat, the technologies we have – they are all products of the scientific process. But many people are disconnected from that process. They see science as something foreign, done in secret labs by strange people. And that’s wrong! Science is an open discussion, and scientists are regular folk who happen to be curious about how things work. But how can scientists show that to the public? 

That’s where Carry the One Radio comes in.

CTOR is a podcast designed to bridge the gap between scientists and the general public. We give scientists a platform to talk about their work, their motivations for being scientists, and what gets them out of bed in the morning. We try to find researchers who are passionate about their work, and who are operating at the edge of their field. That way, listeners get to hear about cool discoveries directly from the researchers (sometimes even  before the discoveries are made public). We post 2 new episodes each month, along with information about the scientists we interview. And because we let the scientists speak directly to the public, listeners get more than sound bites and pretty pictures; they get the whole story.

All of our episodes are available for free. You can download them as mp3s, subscribe to the show via  iTunes, or stream each episode directly on our website

----Take a listen to Karuna Meda's interview with Dr. Susan Voglmaier.

---- Episode 48: "Chimeras Are People Too". Written and produced by Kate Woronowicz.


How Patreon works:

Patreon allows you to tip us a few bucks for each episode we post. For your support, we will give you cool rewards, like science art or a credit in the show. It is kind of like Kickstarter, but you donate each month instead of only once. And your patronage is completely customizable. You can set a max on how much you contribute each month and you can cancel at anytime. Also, you will NOT be charged immediately after we release a new episode. Patreon will send you a notification and you will have plenty of time to cancel, decrease, or increase your contribution.

This is where we need your help.

CTOR started as a small project in 2009, and for lack of money and time, we couldn’t consistently release episodes. But during the start of 2012, we tripled the number of people on our team and, since then, we have interviewed some of the country’s top scientists and continuously uploaded one new episode each month. And, recently, we have also started producing our episodes for radio. But, as you know, running an operation like this takes up time, money, and sweat. We need your support to make this a better podcast. So please help us get more science out of the lab and into the public's ear.

Thanks so much!
Sama, Karuna, and Bryan 

FAQ:


What is so cool about the Patron-Only Stream?
The Patron-Only Stream is the place to get the inside scoop on the show. It is where you can pitch ideas for new episodes and get involved directly with our production team. We are really excited about this part!

What if I want to donate only once?
That's great too! You can donate here .

Are you charging me to listen to your podcast?
No! Our show is a free podcast and that is not going to change. Patreon contributions will only help to make our podcast better.

So... what if you upload a million interviews in a month, will I be charged a million dollars?!
No. Your contribution is completely customizable. You can cancel at any time, even after we release a new episode. Also, a million episodes is too much work for us (we are full-time scientists!). We can only release a 1-2 episodes each month :)

What are you going to do with the money?
Any funds raised help offset the costs of producing our show. Here is where we put in time and money:
  • Finding scientists
  • Transcribing and editing audio
  • Producing the podcast
  • Website management and hosting
  • Hosting the podcast
  • Travel
  • Training new members 
  • Equipment: microphones, recorders, audio editing software
  • Outreach: We also work with middle and high school teachers to teach science lessons based on our episodes
