This one is a breakup that wasn’t: in May 2020, musician Amanda Palmer took to Patreon to announce the apparent end of her marriage to fantasy author Neil Gaiman, but the split was short lived and they’re (probably) happily back together now. Stacie walks us through how Amanda became “The Most Hated Woman On The Internet” and the author of a must-read memoir for anyone trying to get a creative project off the ground. As with everything, it’s complicated.
