If none of that's ringing a bell, you may have caught my closing keynote at Affect Conf 2017 in Portland? Or, possibly, maybe you read me talking about linguistics, race, and/or representation, for publications like The New Yorker, The Huffington Post, Splinter, USA Today, The New Statesman, or The Village Voice? Could've been Cosmopolitan: they once erroneously claimed that I got into a Twitter fight with John Mayer.
Regardless of what led you here, I'm truly grateful and honored that you're reading these words on this website. Please, take a moment to absorb my full gratitude. I'll wait.
Okay, so here's how this thing works. It's really simple. A lot of what I do that's of value- podcasting, say, or writing long-form about mental health and social justice- isn't really considered as such by the people who might typically compensate me for the time I spend on those things.
But those are important things! I have and will continue doing them for free, but if you're someone who finds anything I do valuable and can afford to spare some of the cash a better society might be paying me, you're in the exact right place. And, in exchange, you get to read something original from me, accessible only to patrons, every week!
Whether you're here to pledge or are already a patron, I'm staggered by your kindness and generosity, and can't thank you enough for your support. I'm not tearing up, you're tearing up.
*Please note that pledges here are counted every Tuesday, and in most months there are four Tuesdays. But sometimes there are five! So make sure your pledge isn't significant enough that an extra week might cause undue burden. Thank you! :)
