Hi guys!

If you've heard of me, you probably know I'm co-creator of, and Team Captain on, Dara O'Briain's Go 8 Bit - a video gaming comedy show on the UK TV channel "Dave". Here's some of my stuff from that show: https://youtu.be/JGEXz9kgED8. And here's some from the spin-off show "Go 8 Bit DLC": https://youtu.be/IbcIObZDRUI

I also do a number of live/online gaming shows, including WiFi Wars and The Video Game Game Show Show (http://wifiwars.co.uk) and have been on a bunch of other shows in the UK, like Videogame Nation, Console Yourself and Ginx Live (more info/vids etc on my website: https://www.stevemcneil.co.uk)

Given all that, you might wonder why I've set up a Patreon account. Obviously I'm really lucky to get to do what I do but, the truth is, I'm nowhere near successful enough yet, career-wise, for those shows to pay enough for me to afford to keep doing stuff without bringing some money in.

Basically, I'd love to commit more fully to making regular stuff for you guys and putting it online, for free. I figure those who can afford to bung me a bit of cash (either ad-hoc or regularly) could help fund it, and we can all enjoy it. Otherwise I'll have to start temping again. Which is fine, if I have to. Ultimately, I've got to feed my kid, and she doesn't eat retweets.

My schedule from 1st October will be:

Weekly:
- Youtube video - "Video Diary" or "Behind-The-Scenes" video
- Youtube video - "Retro Revisited"

Monthly:
- Podcast - "Let's Do A Gaming!"
- Youtube video - A "produced" History of Games (far higher production values than the other stuff)

The podcast and produced video will become more regular as support on here grows. If you can afford to bung me anything at all, it'll mean the world to me.  If you give me $5 (or more) you can get early access to all the youtube/podcast stuff I create via my discord server (or, if you don't fancy that, you can choose 'no benefits' when setting things up).

Thank you so much for all your support!
