We also lecture widely on gaming, game design, (and occasionally anime). We also sometimes do weirder things like interview statues or adapt terrible books.
GeekNights is not one, but four separate podcasts. We aired four nights a week for many, many years, and later cut back to two nights a week. Mondays are technology, Tuesdays are gaming, Wednesdays are anime/manga/comics, and Thursdays are everything else.

We fully intend to keep the GeekNights podcast going for many years to come, and we will always keep it free (both as in beer and as in speech - it's Creative Commons licensed). But our other projects, especially video shows, lectures, actual games, etc..., we have little time or resources to maintain.
For now, the Patreon updates will be:
PublicSo, don't worry if you just want GeekNights the podcast to continue forever. But if you care about our Utena videos, our game analysis/teaching videos (like Five Nights at Freddy's or Tigris & Euphrates or Netrunner), or are sad that we skipped our first PAX ever this year (sorry Australia!), any funding you provide will make all of those projects explode from our minds unto the world for your enjoyment.

Specifically, we will resume the GeekNights Presents: Utena show with a rapid turnaround, produce more tabletop videos, commit to PAX Australia 2016, and start a few new projects we've had in the hopper for a long time. The larger the patreon gets, the more long-form content we will produce outside of GeekNights itself.
Patreon Funded Long-Form Content
These are the kinds of larger, longer projects we've always wanted to do, but simply can't with our current resources.
We want to make more fun videos like this, but it costs time and money for animation and art.
We want to make more deep single-game analysis videos like this, but it takes serious time to put even a simple project together.
We want to make shows like GeekNights Presents: Utena for other properties like Steven Universe, Adventure Time, even Bojack Horseman.
You can consider all of these pilots of the kinds of work we'd do if we had more resources. But this is not exhaustive. We may even make games.
