Thank you to all our supporters. Your help spreading the word and backing us has been invaluable in getting this project off the ground.

A bit about us


Level Up Human is a programme where academics and comedians discuss what the human body should look like to be truly fit for purpose. We have invited geneticists to tweak the human genome, memory experts to explain how to download memories, archaeologists to promote the merits of war, we are happy to go down many a comedy cul de sac in pursuit of the ultimate body.

Our podcast has always been and will continue to be free to anyone who wants to listen. You can help to keep it free by joining our band of patrons. We have lofty ambitions of a monthly London residency, tours of music and science festivals, and of course bigger and better guests.

Thank you to everyone who has joined our community. We could not make this project what it is without you. We go further and do more awesome things with your support.

Best,

Team Level Up Human

Tiers
Tardigrade
$2 or more per Podcast
Support our podcast. Tardigrades are very nearly indestructible due to how awesome they are. They can survive extreme heat, cold and have even been taken to space to see whether they could hack it in zero gravity (they totally bossed it.)
Octopus
$10 or more per Podcast
Support our podcast in a way that allows us to make great leaps forward. Octopi are eight footed LEGENDS with three hearts, and it will make us so happy to have you on board. Thank you!

Level Up Human wouldn't be possible without the incredible backing of our supporters.

Our patrons help us with production costs, studio time, travel and booking the best guests in the business.

If we can hit this goal, we hope to establish a regular live recording in London.
