What Am I Supporting?

From the team at Curiosity.com comes a daily podcast to help you get smarter in just a few minutes. With a timely blend of cultural trends, life hacks, and developments in science and technology, you'll learn about your mind and your body, outer space and the depths of the sea, how history shaped the world into what it is today, and more. From the largest galaxies to your smallest brain cells, hosts Cody Gough and Ashley Hamer will help you understand the world better.

We put a LOT of resources into our articles, our mobile apps, and our podcasts, not to mention all we have to do to run a day-to-day business. Our team does as much research as possible to bring you the highest quality stories and interviews, but that takes a lot of time and money. By becoming a patron, you'll fund our ability to accommodate guests, keep our equipment and production value high, and hit up industry events to bring you the latest and greatest on the topics you care about.

Did You Say Guests?

Our audience has spoken, and we've listened. We produced weekly full-length interviews in our first season back in late 2017/early 2018, and now we want to bring you more in-depth conversations to help you get smarter about the world around you. Past guests include:
  • Michio Kaku, world-renowned physicist and co-founder of string field theory;
  • LeVar Burton, legendary television host, actor, and producer;
  • Steven Novella, Yale professor and host of the Skeptics' Guide to the Universe;
  • Eli Finkel, psychologist and relationship expert;
  • Louis Rosenberg, entrepreneur and pioneer in the field of swarm intelligence.
We want to book even more big names to help you learn about the subjects you love, from the depths of the sea to the furthest galaxies — and everything in between. 

That's where your money will go: toward helping us make more time to research and find awesome experts to help you satisfy your curiosity. Your patronage will also help us bring you Patreon-exclusive podcasts and other goodies to give you a more immersive experience.

But Is Your Show Good?

We think so! And our perfect 5-star rating on iTunes and Stitcher doesn't hurt. A lot of our listeners also hear the show as a daily update on their Amazon Echo device with our Alexa Flash Briefing skill. So many ways to listen, so little time — but it's always worth it!

What Is Curiosity.com?

Curiosity answers the questions you never knew to ask and digs into the things you've always wondered about. The company spun out of Discovery in 2014 and today reaches an audience of 70 million a month globally through a website, iOS and Android app, weekly podcast, daily email, Chrome extension, and Amazon Alexa skill. With five new stories on a variety of topics every day (plus thousands more to discover), it helps people have fun learning about everything from the scientific and relatable to the awe-inspiring and downright weird. Count on Curiosity to explain even the densest subjects in a way that's entertaining, witty, and easy to understand.
