About The Unspeakable

Hi and welcome to The Unspeakable Patreon Page!

I launched The Unspeakable Podcast on July 27, 2020. The idea was to bring in a wide range of guests for free-ranging, Nuanced™ conversations about topics that were perfectly acceptable until about ten minutes ago but have now been deemed “unspeakable.” Early guests included evolutionary biologist Heather Heying, novelist Leigh Stein, and celebrity physician Dr. Drew Pinsky. I had no idea how it was going to go, but the show received an immediate positive response and there's been an episode nearly every week since then.

Here's the thing, though: as successful as the show has been, I'm still entirely dependent on subscriber support to keep it going. There are various platforms and sponsors I could have partnered with over the last few months, but in order to keep the show true to its mission and continue to bring listeners the kind of interviews they keep telling me they're so desperate to hear, I've felt I must continue to steer my own ship.

Believe me, I have a hard time asking for money. My parents barely let me go trick-or-treating when I was a kid because it was "like begging" (I wasn't allowed to sell Girl Scout cookies, either). So this is out of my comfort zone, to put it mildly. But my love for the podcast means doing what's necessarily to keep it going, so here we are.

I'm always trying to add new perks, but right now subscribing gets you everything from early 
access to the podcast to Patreon-only bonus episodes and video conversations to discounts on official Unspeakable Podcast Nuanced AF merchandise. 

For now, the podcast remains free to the public, available on the show's 
website as well as the usual places you get your podcasts. If you can join the Patreon now, you can always show support by leaving a rating or review there. (Positive only, please!)
