With new episodes every other Wednesday, Be The Serpent is a podcast by three red-headed Slytherinish fantasy authors who enjoy shouting about everything from academic mythology to dick jokes (and sometimes, both at once). In this show, we talk about pieces of literature and media that are exciting or interesting to us, including the role of fanfiction as an integral yet oft-overlooked part of the literary conversation and in the broader cultural context.

We love tropes, fantasy economics, unreliable narrators, critiquing terrible metaphors, and crying about our feelings. Take a shot every time we say the word 'lubrication'.

It is, obviously, a podcast of extremely deep literary merit.

Questions? Comments? Breathless adulations?

Tiers
grass snek

Grass sneks are legion! As a loyal snek, you receive access to monthly recs posts and occasional behind-the-scenes goodies. Not to mention our eternal gratitude!

garter snek
$2 or more per month

Garter sneks are pretty cute! At this tier, you get to see Alex's monthly adorable doodle of a snek wearing a hat: "This is Jeremy. He's going to a fancy party." You also get access to our recs posts and behind-the-scenes stuff!

coral snek
$5 or more per month

Coral sneks are super colourful! This is the interactive tier: You get the right to suggest and vote on things for our recs posts, suggest themes for Alex's snek doodles, and other entertainments! You'll also get access to all previous tier rewards. 

Goals
$352 of $500 per month
This goal means we can pay Alex for audio editing, as well as hosting and other expenses!

When we reach this level, you will unlock: video content! No promises as to camera quality, but we do guarantee at least five minutes of sophisticated anecdotes and/or face-pulling silliness a month, viewable at all tiers. First up: Macey's legendary long-lost oboist!
