Thanks in the show notes
per month
  • Access to patron-only content on this site
  • Special thanks in the show notes for each episode created for the duration of your patronage
Physical Copy
per month
  • We're a show that celebrates an era when physical media was king -- so why not? We'll send you a cassette tape or CD version of one episode each month.
  • You can choose what episode is on your physical copy, and what format -- but remember that CDs and cassette tapes have time constraints that the internet does not...so it is possible or even likely that we will have to edit down to a cut that will fit on a single disc/tape.
  • Plus all previous rewards
Choose Your Own Adventure
Limited (3 of 4 remaining)
per month
  • You can choose two (2) movies that will be the subject of an episode.*
  • Plus all previous rewards
*Within reason. Porn, movies we have already done before, or movies that are cost-prohibitive to obtain can be disqualified.

ECV creates a number of pop culture podcasts centering on film and television criticism.

Delicious Flavor: A Psych Rewatch Podcast takes fans through USA Network's hit procedural drama Psych.

The Emerald City Video Podcast features ComicBook.com senior staff writer Russ Burlingame, acclaimed photojournalist and filmmaker Zach D. Roberts, and numerous other former employees of the Emerald City Video store in Syracuse (sadly no longer active), talking about, reviewing, and recommending movies.

Archie Digest: A Riverdale Podcast does post-episode reviews and discussions on The CW's hit Archie Comics adaptation Riverdale. You can find more details at archiedigestpodcast.com.

We genuinely think there is some value to this beyond just entertainment and being yet another reviewer on the internet. We approach it differently, and one of the reasons we are heading to Patreon is because we have some fun, exciting ideas on how to become more interactive with the audience.

And, in early 2020, we are going to start creating some new and different content, including a scripted, narrative podcast and some ebooks -- which our backers will have first looks at.

Just like they used to do when video stores were a thing, only back then somebody paid them to. I...guess that's where YOU come in?

At 25 patrons, we should be able to pay to host the podcasts without going out of Russ's pocket every month.
