Hi! We’re Jax (Jacquelyn Gill) and Phoebe (Phoebe Cohen), and we’d like to bake an apple pie. But first, we have to make a planet — and not just any planet, but the best planet: Earth! It’s a project that’s been 4.56 billion years in the making, and we’ve got all the ingredients right here: Comets! Asteroids! Volcanoes! Oxygen! Water! Carbon!

Jax and Phoebe Make a Planet is a limited-run podcast that will explore all the major chance events in earth history that needed to take place to get to the moment where two humans (us!) are able to hang out and bake an apple pie together. Along the way, our listeners will learn about why Earth is such an incredibly special place — and one worth protecting. Each episode will focus on an important moment that changed the trajectory of our planet, and life itself —  the formation of the moon, the evolution of the oxygen-producing bacteria that created our breathable atmosphere, how plants made it onto land, the asteroid impact that ushered in the Age of Mammals, and more. Along the way, we’ll explore the origins of all the ingredients needed to make an apple pie (Sugar! Butter! Apples!). The podcast format will include a blend of scripted essays, conversation, and interviews.


As of September 13th, this project has raised $34,000 of their $42,500 goal. This project has 3 days left to raise the $42,500 or it will not be funded.  For a pledge of $10, you will get a website shoutout.  For a pledge of $25, you will get a recipe card.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to:
