We've been extraordinarily lucky to be able to produce video content for the LAGTV community since 2010. We're lucky because that's a long time for a Youtube community to stay together and we're incredibly grateful for everyone who has been with us along that journey. For years now we've had comments, emails, smoke signals, and a few carrier pigeons sent to us by fans suggesting we do a Podcast. We toyed with the idea many times over the years but we wanted to be in a place where it made the most sense, and to make sure we had our hearts in it. As it turns out, we've totally reached that place and are incredibly excited to bring all of you Technical Alpha!

Hosted by Adam (NovaWar), Jeff (MaximusBlack) and Tabin (PanicSwitched), Technical Alpha aims to put our opinions on video games, movies, and tech out in to the real world where people may judge us feverishly. As the name suggests, we're not out to be the most glorious, glorious Nippon steel podcast - folded over 1,000 times. No, instead we just plan to talk in the general direction of our microphones and pray nothing catches fire. I guess we also hope you sort of enjoy it - that'd be nice, too.

We've decided to make Technical Alpha free to everyone as a standard. We will be live on Twitch every Friday night from 8pm - 10pm EST with clips and full VODs being posted on the Life's A Glitch TV Youtube channel. Beyond that we've aimed to provide some fun bonuses to those of you who wish to contribute and we are incredibly grateful for those who take that dive - at any level! Ultimately, patrons are what will allow us to keep bringing you our show and we can't thank you all enough for your support!


VIRTUAL DELIVERABLES NOTICE

The Patreon Wall, Jeff's personalized noises, and other non-product specific virtual deliverables should be fulfilled within a month of subscribing. We will of course attempt to have everything done as quickly as possible but not everything will be doable within a few days so we thank you for bearing with us! Things like higher quality audio download links will of course make their way to you usually the same day as the official release.

PHYSICAL DELIVERABLES NOTICE

We will have sample images for all deliverables in the hopefully not to distant future. This includes the current physical deliverable of stickers and future rewards where applicable. Know that the stickers are essentially singles of what you see in the tier header images. The podcast's logo, our normal characters, variant characters, and the soon to arrive sellout variant characters are what you'll be receiving based on your reward! If you feel you want to see them more prominently keep checking back here as we'll have that all set up when we are able!

Also keep in mind we're a simple trio of man children. While we will do everything we can to get physical stuff to your door as soon as possible, it may take some time. We appreciate your patience!

You've already called in sick for the next five days. Nothing you can do about the Moose flu aside from maybe some gaming therapy. Sad, really. Now where to put that statue...

You're a strong independent black woman who don't need no man and have the unholy amount of money to prove it. For some reason, our podcast is on your list of favourite things. Tom Cruise really likes you.

People like to ignore you until they're being chased by velociraptors. You did a lot of work in six days, and on the seventh you got bored because let's face it you're a workaholic. Somehow we entertained you enough for you to put us in a monetary coma.


  • Our artist is going to draw you to match our characters and you'll get a digital copy!
  • We'll also put your character on a poster with our characters and send you a signed print!
  • Everything from previous tiers included.

Ever wondered what goes through our minds while we're watching movies? Ok that's an oddly specific question, but we figure it'd be fun to get together and do Movie Commentaries once a month so you no longer lose sleep wondering such fanciful things!

We'll record ourselves as we watch movies, both good and bad, and give it to you in the hopes it's entertaining! You'll have to get the movies yourself, of course, but we're pretty sure you've got that covered. You're an adult. We believe in you.
