Ignorance is #Blessed is creating podcasts!!

Hey Idiot! (That's you! And me! And everyone sometimes!)

First of all, if you're here, thank you for supporting me and my podcast, Ignorance is #Blessed. Even if you're only considering becoming a patron, the fact that you listen really warms my heart. It's truly a pleasure attempting to overcome ignorance by asking ignorant questions to all of my podcast guests and I hope you enjoy listening to them as much as I enjoy creating them.

If you've stumbled on this page by accident, here's a little rundown of what I'm creating: My name is Jessica Michelle Singleton (@JMScomedy if you see me on social media, which--by the way--has led people to simply start calling me JMS a lot lately.) I'm a professional, internationally touring stand up comedian and I host a podcast called "Ignorance is #Blessed" where I interview guests from all walks of life and ask ignorant questions as a way to learn and get past misconceptions (and also for the entertainment of those who enjoy cringing when I ask things like "Why can't I say the N word?" and "Are you sure you're not just making up your (fill in the blank with various mental illnesses)?"

I try to keep most conversations light enough for laughs but we do get deep sometimes so it's technically a Society & Culture podcast rather than a comedy one. Luckily for those who enjoy comedy, I make a joke out of literally everything in life. AND if you want more of my comedy, I tour all over and will hopefully be somewhere near you in the future! 

I created this Patreon to help fund the production costs the podcast which is more with my schedule getting busier because I've had to hire someone to start editing the sound (if you've noticed an improvement, spoiler alert: it's not because I got better at sound engineering). I pay by episode and am trying to put more out regularly so it addes up. Between that, funding my one woman show for Edinburgh and my medical bills for trying to keep my Rheumatoid Arthritis at bay (UGH), there's a LOT more money going out than coming in. Plus I would love to be able to fund other content/cool projects in the future for your entertainment so I thought, why not? 

I am genuinely thankful to anyone who comes here and pledges even a dollar as I still have not developed the self-worth skills necessary to believe anyone would actually love me enough to invest in me. So congratulations on helping me break that barrier and thank you for participating!

I will personally thank you in the intro of one episode of Ignorance is #Blessed and love you forever! You’ll also have early access to unedited (no intro/outro added yet) episodes and special bonus episodes for Patreon members only. There will be at least one a month and they’ll usually be a solo episode where I’m just spewing my thoughts on things and probably saying some really ignorant shit. 
Inquiring Idiot
$5 or more per month
I will guarantee to ask the questions you send for any guest I give a heads up about (BUT YA GOTTA SEND EM! I CAN’T READ YOUR MIND!) If you have a personal question for me you’d like answered in the bonus podcasts or just a topic you’d like to hear my thoughts on, I will answer those, too. Limit one personal question or topic suggestion per month per patron. I don’t see that being an issue but just in case so bonus episodes don’t just become me answering a list of questions and nothing else.

 I will send you a personal monthly postcard from wherever I am in the world touring during that month. :) Congratulations, everyone in this category. You’re now filling the hole that was left by my ex boyfriend who I used to send postcards to from every city. And, to be honest, I love you all way more.

 I’ll give you a shoutout in the outro of every episode of Ignorance is #Blessed and you get an exclusive invite to the secret idiot meetings. (A monthly Google hang chat.) And I’ll follow you on your favorite social media site! (You have to pick one, though.) You and a guest are automatically in free to a show if I come to your city. (You have to let me know though so I can get you on the guest list!) 
And I will tag you in a thank you post on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram story!

All of the above AND I will follow a second social media account of yours. I USED to have my personal facebook friendship as an option here but I deleted my regular FB because social media is killing me. You can email me whenever though and I promise to respond (probably once a week at most though). Against probably my better judgment, I will make and send you a fun new Ignorance is #Blessed (or occasionally something related to my stand up) merch item each month.. You will be mentioned as an elite patron in the intros.

You're an actual idiot but so am I.
$15,000 or more per month
All of the above and I'll let you choose something for me to tattoo on my body and the location and I'll livestream it.

(Restrictions apply: Can't be bigger than any tattoos I already have, must be below the neck, no hate speech/symbolism.)

Roll your eyes at the restrictions all you want! You were never going to pay me this much money anyway because you're not that stupid!
Goals
59% complete
Okay so if you've been following the podcast, you know I have a tendency to fall off for a couple weeks and go MIA. (Although, I think I've gotten better.)

If I reach my first goal I'll be able to afford and guarantee weekly episodes AND at least two bonus (patrons only) episodes a month, instead of just the guaranteed one. So if you wish I was more on top of this, NOW IS YOUR CHANCE TO FORCE ME INTO BEING MORE ACCOUNTABLE BY MAKING THIS SOMETHING I AM NOT LOSING MONEY DOING.

And if we don't get to that goal, no harm done. I just will continue to only feel crippling pressure from myself that nobody else is applying.
