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

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.

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and filmmaker Zach D. Roberts, and numerous other former employees of the Emerald City Video store in Syracuse (sadly no longer active), talking about, reviewing, and recommending movies.

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.

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?
Tiers
Thanks in the show notes
$1 or more per month 0 patrons
  • Access to patron-only content on this site
  • Special thanks in the show notes for each episode created for the duration of your patronage
Commentary Track
$5 or more per month 0 patrons
  • We love bonus features on Blu-rays and DVDs -- and the folks at Archie Digest: A Riverdale Podcast love 'Riverdale.'
  • At this level, you get early access to podcasts, patron-only posts, and more -- plus once a month, a commentary track MP3 that you can listen to over an episode of 'Riverdale.' This will provide insight that is different from the Archie Digest episode for that show because it will happen in real time and likely provoke different discussions about shots, music, etc., that get glossed over in the reaction podcast.
Physical Copy
$10 or more per month 0 patrons
  • 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
$14 or more per month 1 patrons (sold out!)
  • 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.
VHS Copy
$15 or more per month 0 patrons
  • We will record one episode per quarter that will be exclusively available to backers on the VHS copy tier.
  • The episode will be made available on VHS and shipped in a clamshell case reminiscent of the ones you used to get movies in from the video store.
This Episode Sponsored By...
$50 or more per month 0 of 1 patrons
  • You or your product will be the "sponsor" of an episode. We will open and close the episode with a message from our sponsors, up to 30 seconds and within reason.
  • This tier excludes any physical rewards, and does not include the Five for $5 reward.
Goals
1 of 25 patrons
At 25 patrons, we should be able to pay to host the podcasts without going out of Russ's pocket every month.
