I love paleontology. A lot. And not just the dinosaurs either — I have a soft spot for every worm, rodent and anomalocaridid that has ever squirmed, skittered or swam on our amazing planet.

Dragon Tongues is my way of sharing this love, of making it so anyone can see the same beauty and wonder I see when I look into the past. Each episode tells the story of an animal or group of animals, finding the human in the furthest branches of the tree of life. These episodes are grouped into seasons, tied together by a cohesive theme and an overarching message. You can subscribe on iTunes here, subscribe to the RSS feed here, and check out my Tumblr here.

Currently, I am producing one episode a month, ranging in length from 12–20 minutes. I'm planning to start making two a month, but that is easier said than done.



Which is why I'm here. I have no intention of ever charging for Dragon Tongues, and I would never in a million years put in advertisements. However, I would like to be able to cover the price of hosting the podcast and, in the future, possibly make enough money to warrant making multiple episodes a month.

But to get to that point I need your help. That's right, you! The person reading this! By contributing to this Patreon campaign, you will pledge a certain amount to give Dragon Tongues every month. This means it doesn't have to be a big number, and even pledging $1 a month would make a difference. Also, even if I start making multiple episodes a month you will only be charged once, so don't be afraid of that amount going up unexpectedly.

I have been absolutely overwhelmed by the positive feedback I have heard from you guys so far, and I want to keep doing this show for a long time. You can help me with that! So give a little if you can, and please share this page with anyone you think would be interested. Oh, and keep being awesome. Seriously, you guys are the greatest.

I will mention you on the podcast and tell everyone you are attractive and charming. I'll also read a personal message or answer a question if you ask nicely. All reward levels also grant access to the patron only updates, where I will post previews of upcoming episodes.

I will write a 1000 word episode on a topic of your choice, which I will then record and release as a mini-episode.

If this amount is pledged I will start making two episodes a month. Crazy!
