About Exolore

Hello lovely human!

If you've found your way to my patreon page, you probably know that my name is Moiya and I'm an astrophysicist/folklorist. You might not already know that my personal mission is to help people incorporate more science into their every day lives.

One way that I do that is through my podcast, Exolore! Each episode of the show explores a different facet of fictional worldbuilding through the lens of science and facts. That can mean building a new world from scratch with a panel of expert guests, or asking another worldbuilder to share their creative process, or analyzing a fictional world that already exists. I think of worldbuilding as an inherently introspective act -- it teaches you about our own world while introducing you to a brand new imaginary one.

This podcast and my other worldbuilding projects will help you see how science influences your life in ways you may have never thought of before!

I firmly believe that the work I do should be accessible to everyone, but I also still need to support myself financially. So I will never make you pay for my content, but I will ask you to give what you can so that I can continue to create it. So choose a tier that works for you, and if you want access to any other benefits, just send me a message. I'll make sure you get all the worldbuilding content!

Thank you so much for even taking the time to read through this page. I hope you're ready to find the science hidden in the world around us!

This will cover the cost of making Exolore each month (paying my editor, transcriber, and hosting fees). To celebrate breaking even, I will get an Exolore tattoo *big staring eyes emoji*
