Hey Everyone! started as a blog about science and wonder, but soon became a community.

In the spirit of David Attenborough and National Geographic with a touch of Terence McKenna, we're using modern media to uphold a perspective that's older than the pyramids:

Awe for the immense beauty of our universe.

We put out a lot of content for free, but becoming a Patreon is what takes your experience to the next level.

You'll get exclusive content, behind the scenes access, credit including links to your own projects and sites, book recommendations, and tons more. You'll also be contributing to our ability to create high-quality content and discussion.

Patreon is a platform that lets people directly support the creators whose work they enjoy. You just choose a tier, and will be rewarded proportionally.

Unlike many other membership platforms, Patreon integrates with a ton of services like YouTube, Twitch, and many websites. It means that we can produce the highest quality material and are open to expansion into any new medium.

We can't wait to share our exclusive content with you.

Patreon is SEPARATE from your account. It handles payments and membership benefits, while your account does everything else.

To become a supporting member, you need to select a tier and create a Patreon account if you don't have one already - but it's very quick and part of the checkout process ❤️

Much love,
Ben McCarthy, Founder
