About Secretly Incredibly Fascinating

Hey there folks! This is the Patreon home of Secretly Incredibly Fascinating. It’s a new podcast by Alex Schmidt (that’s me!). It’s a top “Podmass” pick by The A.V. Club. It’s free to listen to. And I’m depending on your support to keep it alive.

Secretly Incredibly Fascinating is the podcast I’ve always wanted to hear. So I work full-time (and then some!) on the planning, research, editing, guest-booking, taping, and blood/sweat/tears-ing to necessary make 'SIF' happen. It’s a joy to do that labor! And I’m grateful to everybody who’s backed the show so far.

I find that people support ‘SIF’ on Patreon for two reasons:
  • They get a bunch of tangible benefits (at an astonishingly low price!).
  • They’re the type of people who step up and support their favorite positive, thoughtful, funny, high-quality entertainment. They enjoy it and they enjoy being part of making it happen.

I’ll bet you’re excited about one (or more!) of those two things. So click the “Join” button above this chunk of text, and give yourself that gift. An entire library of bonus shows awaits you -- and with your support, it can keep on growing.

Thanks and happy listening,
