Right after the 2016 election, we (Rachel Anne Goodman and Cosmic Joe Jordan) created the Planet Watch radio show and podcast to explore “big solutions to planet sized problems” that didn’t seem to be getting enough air time. Soon after there was the March for Science, where thousands upon thousands of citizens marched worldwide to say: facts matter, science matters, and “I can’t believe I have to march for this $%^&*”.

Since our inception we have produced over 40 one-hour shows that explore everything from solar and wind energy to micro-hydro power to ice and personal rapid transit, and we’ve talked with scientists at the cutting edge of climate research, oceans and fisheries, and even bees, all with the aim of celebrating our wonderful planet and saving it from plunder.

We’re excited to expand the show from a weekly one-hour radio program to a podcast, and that is why we’re turning to you, our loyal listeners, and inviting you to support us on Patreon. This is a platform that lets creative people like us connect with listeners and supporters like you. In fact, a listener who wanted to donate to our show suggested we set this page up.

What will your dollars be supporting? Starting with upgrading our recording equipment, to paying for time to book ever more awesome guests, this supports the overall production and expansion of the show, from live and archived on line to podcasts which automatically download to the device of your choice.

We will offer you some wonderful rewards, including input on our weekly science quiz, shout outs on the air, suggest guests, and even an in-person star-gazing or physics in nature experience hosted by our own "Cosmic" Joe Jordan. Keep in mind, you can cancel your monthly patronage at any time, ideally at the end of the month of receiving rewards, so for the "one-off" events like singalongs and star parties, just choose that item, and once the month and the reward has been completed, you can stop payment easily if you want to.

Thank you so much for believing that the world is saveable, one listener at a time!

Bring a group of friends to sing around the campfire or living room fireplace with Rachel Anne Goodman and then go star gazing with Joe Jordan (weather permitting). This event includes an evening of nature-themed favorite folk songs, songs of the west, and anything a group can belt out with no singing experience necessary (requests taken). 
Goals
