Beyond the Trope is creating Weekly Nerdy Podcasts

patrons

$111
per month
Once upon a time, three friends went crazy and started a podcast about the deep, artistic depths of fiction. Our podcast style is casual, and we love to geek out about the things we love! We're creators who believe that pop culture (and especially mass-market writing) has something for everyone, not just "those nerds."
Since that bout of poor judgement in 2013, we’ve been releasing weekly episodes on all sorts of topics, from fiction writing and author interviews to covering conventions and cosplay basics. And we couldn’t do what we do without the support of our awesome fans and patrons!
When you become a patron of Beyond the Trope, you’re helping Michelle, Giles, and Emily:
  • Continue paying for hosting fees
  • Keep the lights on
  • Reach out to more creators for ridiculous interviews
  • Nerd out at you regularly
  • Support Giles’ beer habit
  • Buy Michelle’s craft supplies
  • Fund Emily’s cosplay endeavors
  • Make you laugh so hard you might crash your car (but seriously, be careful)
Plus, you get access to our fantastically ridiculous Patreon-only feed, which includes exclusive interview announcements, backstage access to the co-hosts’ creative projects, and more.

Beyond The Trope is owned and operated by Page 42 Productions, LLC.

You know we like to make people laugh, right? Well, now that your BFF XP has given you the Almighty Armor of Awesomeness, you get everything that came before as well as a monthly movie commentary track from us, your Ever So Humble Podcast Hosts.
