Advertise! and hire a house cleaner and babysitter

$500 per month

If any of you are parents of a 5-year old and two teenagers, with no grandparents nearby you will totally understand that I can't get anything done during the day, and evenings are clean-up time.  This will give me time to get through my day job and not have to clean the house after.  With this level of support I will have time in the evenings to research new content and provide you with an ongoing stream of great entertainment and new insights.  This will also go towards the costs of unlimited podcast bandwidth, and running podcast ads for the show.

Reached!

    Thank you for giving a voice to what I need to hear. What I need learn about. And a reasoned, rational view. You are a rare one Dr Alan Scott. As an aside. I have had multiple great friends named Alan. That alone sold me. Keep on keepin on brother

    I stumbled over your (advertised) podcast on the app Pocket Casts and am totally excited about your show and topics. It's the first I support someone on Patron, so that's something new.
    The way you present and discuss the topics really resonates with me and sparks a ight of activism. Especially the controversial topic of renewables vs. nuclear is a field of which I wasn't aware until recently when I...yep, stumbled over your show.
    So big thumbs up for your efforts and podcast. Keep it going.
