Welcome to Level Up Human, the podcast panel show, souping up the homo sapien.

First things first. 
What is Patreon?

  • Patreon is a platform which supports independent creators to produce art, music, literature, podcasts and videos.
  • Patreon provides creators with a regular income and creative freedom to produce the things their Patrons love.
  • You can become our Patron from as little as $2 per episode.
  • Because Patreon is an American platform, donations are in dollars at the moment. You can support us with a donation in GBP via our website if you prefer.

What is Level Up Human?

Level Up Human is a podcast on a mission. We think humans could be so much better.

By supporting us, you are helping us to keep going. Speaking to new experts and exploring new avenues.

Thank you to everyone who has joined our community.

Patreons enjoy early access to episodes, extended show notes, shout outs on the programme, personal messages and the ability to request content in our Level Up Human Extra shows.

If you agree with us that human beings could be better, you might like to come along with us for the ride.

Best wishes,

Team Level Up Human
