About Natalie Newell

The original film concept that brought me to the world of online scicomm and skeptical activism: "Science Moms" is a film that will give a voice to the science-minded moms - the women who are too often drowned out by the fear mongers, the shamers, and the CelebMoms. Through interviews with "science moms" who are on the front lines of this struggle, and using fun, informative graphics, we’ll dissect the bogus claims of these celebrities one by one and explain in simple language what the science really shows about GMOs, vaccines, homeopathy, and any of these topics that are often in the headlines, yet even more often are misunderstood. And we’ll talk to a behavioral psychologist who will illuminate the science behind why people believe weird things. We can’t change everyone’s minds, but we can make our voices heard. One mom at a time.

After a couple years of work, Science Moms has been released into the wild (well, skeptic conferences and places like that, plus the internet), and I want to be able to get as many eyes on this film as possible. So here I am on Patreon, trying to help fund my little dream.

And because making a science-based parenting documentary wasn't enough... While working on the film, I also ventured into the wonderful world of podcasting, and have been producing and co-hosting The Science Enthusiast Podcast with my BFF Dan Broadbent for over a year. I've come to cherish the conversations had and connections made as a result of this show, and will begin doing a spinoff podcast project under the tSE umbrella. (Because I need another excuse to have interesting conversations about things that might not pertain to the regular content of our show.)

All of this is a longwinded way to say, "I love creating content and spreading good ideas, and would love a little monetary support for the time it takes to do these things." 

Love y'all, 

Natalie

I don't really know how to put a dollar amount on "goals," but I know that I want to continue to put out content related to both The Science Enthusiast Podcast and my Science Moms documentary.

The goal is to spread good ideas, and provide platforms to people who have awesome things to say to the world. And I'd be stoked to have y'all support me in that process.
