Hi. We're Missy and Merri, and we're making podcasts discussing nerdy pop culture, intersectional feminism, and the ways media can do better.

For us, this has been and will always be a labor of love. We started this podcast not because we wanted to make money but because we wanted a creative outlet, and, over a year after its launch, we're still loving every minute of it.

But as time goes on, our dreams are getting bigger. We've made big strides in audio quality and editing in the past year, but we can do better. To do better, we need better equipment. We want to meet more of you and interact with you on a more personal basis, but the time investment and costs of traveling to conventions are more than we can afford. We want to branch out into video and do more episodes, but that means taking time off from our paying jobs to get it done. 

But that's where you can help! If you like what we do, your financial contribution can help us make a bigger, better, more awesome podcast. More episodes, more guests, more convention coverage. We'll even cover your favorite media if you donate enough. 

Fake Geek Girls has always been free and will always be free - we have no intention of charging for our content. But for people who want to help us out and encourage us to reach even higher, we want to do a little extra - bonus episodes, personal chats, and so on, as a way of thanking you. 

We're grateful for all the support we've had so far. We couldn't do it without all of you emailing us and telling us your thoughts. You're the best!

  • An executive producer credit in every episode
  • We'll have you on as a guest host for a topic of your choice! Same considerations as above: we reserve the right to refuse, but, provided you use common sense, there's very little chance we'll say no
Actual Deities
$75 or more per month
For $75 per month, we're in awe and you get something weird and silly as a result. We'll deliver, we just want you to know that it's weird and silly. In addition to everything above, you'll get:

  • Personalized pet photos
  • Yeah, this tier is still silly
