About The Science on Top Team

Science on Top is a weekly podcast about science, health and technology news. Ed, Shayne, Penny and Lucas cast an entertaining yet skeptical eye on the latest research and discoveries. By supporting Science on Top, you'll be helping us promote good science!

Every episode we do costs us money. There are hosting fees, audio processing software, equipment costs and all sorts of sundry expenses. Not to mention the time and effort we put in each week to research and record the show! Every bit of support helps - even if it's just a few words of thanks.

New to Patreon? Here's how it works:
* Simply sign up as a patron. Like being a patron of the arts, but for science!
* Choose a donation to make per episode of SoT. Have a look at the Rewards on the right of this page to help you choose!
* Pledge! You'll be charged monthly, and only for the number of episodes we create that month.
* You can set a maximum amount to donate per month, so even if we go crazy and make tonnes of episodes you won't pay more than your limit.

We usually create about 40 episodes per year, so about 3-4 shows a month.

Just knowing that you've come to our Patreon page - even if you don't donate - means the world to us. Knowing that you're interested in donating tells us there are people out there who, like us, think science is worth promoting and discussing. And like us, you want Science on Top to be the best podcast it can be!

We can upgrade our equipment.

There are three main pieces of kit we use: microphones, headphones and computers. And the thing about physical hardware is it tends to wear out, break down and need replacing.

If we hit this goal, we'll be able to keep all the equipment in top notch condition, so you won't miss out on Shayne's words of wisdom when his computer craps out!
