WE LOVE ART...

Support us at $10/month via Patreon, and we’ll send you a comic book of four classic stories from our podcast, by Danny Artese, Patrick Freeman, and Story Collider’s own Maryam Zaringhalam and Paula Croxson

Illustrated by the amazing Maki Naro, Angela Entzminger, Jordan Jeffries, and our LA-based producer Cassie Soliday!

AND WE LOVE COFFEE!

If you sign up for monthly $25 donations via Patreon, you’ll receive both the comic book and a Story Collider coffee mug. The mug is large enough to hold literally all of the coffee you will ever need, and makes an excellent holiday gift for the overcaffeinated scientist in your life.

Please note: The Story Collider is a Section 501(c)3 nonprofit and your gift may qualify as a charitable deduction for federal income tax purposes.

 

If you’d prefer a one-time donation, for the next week, we’re also offering the comic to those who make a one-time donation of $20 or more, and the comic + mug to those who make a one-time donation of $50 or more. Go to https://www.paypal.me/TheStoryCollider to make it happen!

  Yep. It is genuinely almost as big as your head.

What are you supporting when you support Story Collider?

When you donate to Story Collider, you have a chance to make a huge difference to a small organization with a big mission. You’re contributing to:

Kick-ass shows

The Story Collider produces more than forty  powerful, hilarious, gut-punching live shows every year, in cities around the country and beyond. Part of our mission is to gather stories about science from as many different types of voices as we can. That’s why, this year, we launched regular shows in three new cities: St. Louis, Atlanta, and Toronto. Our continued expansion depends on your support!

POWERFUL Stories

Story Collider stories have the power to change our perception of who science belongs to, and who can be a scientist. In fact, a recent study by scientist Jeff Schinske found that community college students who listened to a selection of Story Collider stories came away with increased interest in science careers and a higher likelihood of seeing a place for themselves in science.

TRANSFORMATIVE TRAININGS

We believe that now, more than ever, it’s crucial for scientists to connect with the general public. That’s why our indefatigable executive director, Liz Neeley, has been traveling the globe almost nonstop this year to run workshops that empower scientists with storytelling skills.
