ACMEScience.com: Making Mathematics and Science interesting and entertaining since 2009

ACMEScience.com has spent the last four years trying to do something that very few others have ever attempted, create entertaining, insightful, and interesting content about mathematics and science. Started by Samuel Hansen in the beginning of 2009, ACMEScience has produced a pop-culture joke filled mathematical panel show, Combinations and Permutations, a show that interviews everyone from the CEO of a stats driven dating site to a stand up mathematician to Neil deGrasse Tyson, Strongly Connected Components, a show that tells the stories of the fights that behind DNA, dinosaurs, and the shape of the universe, Science Sparring Society, a video interview show that has featured predatory bacteria and crowdsourced questions, ACMEScience News Now, and a series of hour long journeys into the world of competitive AI checkers computers and stories of the most interesting 20th C mathematician and much more, Relatively Prime

Samuel has managed to do all of this in the way typical of most internet creators, in the spare time between part-time jobs, with equipment scrounged or scrimped for, and with release schedules that vary due to the various things that can take time away from extracurricular projects. This is why Samuel has come back to Kickstarter, he raised initial stakes for Relatively Prime back in 2011, he wants to take ACMEScience to the next level and make it is actual full time job for all of 2013. This means that he would not need to work other jobs, he would be able to get needed, and upgrade old, equipment, be able to travel and conduct important interviews face to face, and high quality content would come to you on a regular schedule. 

What this really means for you, the media consumer, is that in the year 2013 there would be at least 26 new episodes of Strongly Connected Components, released every other week, 26 episodes of ACMEScience News Now, released on the opposite weeks, two 3 episode half seasons of Relatively Prime, with the possiblity of 10 total episodes(look at the pledge levels!), and a brand new monthly show, still in development, that will focus less on a strict format than on presenting science and mathematics in brand new and creative ways, one month could be an in-depth conversation with a science journalist about her new story and the next a radio play about a young mathematicians journey to solving his first theorem. That is 70 pieces of content that your support of ACMEScience will bring to the world. 

ACMEScience has been dedicated to creating mathematical and scientific content on a part-time basis for four years now, please help turn it into a full time production for the next year by kicking in some money. Oh, and please tell everyone you know to help us too(facebook and twitter seem to be good places to do that, in case you were wondering).

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Once the ACMEScience Kickstarter is funded the work of booking guests and producing content will begin. Samuel has years of experiences in doing just this, as well as seeing to following through on a Kickstarter project, and he managed it while working other jobs. It is possible of course that unforeseen circumstances such as travel problems, an illness, or family problems could cause the schedule to slip, but Samuel will do what he can to bank extra episodes so problems like this do not occur. If the schedule does slip, you will get the episode, just a bit late.
