About The Sweaty Penguin

ABOUT THE PODCAST

Sometimes, climate change IS a laughing matter. Every week, The Sweaty Penguin cuts through the noise and the doom-and-gloom of the climate conversation with late-night-comedy-style monologues and in-depth conversations with leading global experts on a variety of environmental issues. Through a nonpartisan approach, The Sweaty Penguin makes environmental issues less overwhelming and politicized and more accessible and fun. In partnership with Peril and Promise, a PBS/WNET public media initiative on climate change, The Sweaty Penguin invites you to join the hottest conversation in town.

One year in, The Sweaty Penguin has released over 30 hours of content, received over 4,500 downloads, won two grants, launched a partnership, and interviewed experts from the US, Canada, UK, Switzerland, Netherlands, Kenya, and Australia... and we're just getting started. We believe if everyone agrees on what the environmental problems are, even if we disagree on solutions, we'll ultimately make progress. As Ethan graduates college and looks to grow The Sweaty Penguin into a leading environmental news source that engages millions of people on these environmental issues, your help makes all the difference in taking The Sweaty Penguin to that next level.

GOALS

We have begun a running list of goals that will help us grow the podcast and give you more rewards. As our membership grows, so will our goals. Everything published by The Sweaty Penguin takes a lot of time to extensively research and fact-check, so more patrons allows our team to put in the hours to create more and more content for you!

Goals:
  • 10 Patrons - We start making monthly extended cuts of episodes
  • 25 Patrons - We launch a recurring raffle with signed books from guests, and enter each of our first 25 patrons (regardless of tier)
  • 50 Patrons - We start making a monthly Q&A segment to answer your questions on past episodes and environmental news
  • 100 Patrons - We start custom-making Sweaty Penguin plush toys, and send one to all of our first 100 patrons in the Chinstrap, Gentoo, and Emperor tiers!

If you enjoy The Sweaty Penguin, please join to help us reach these goals and start adding more to the list!
