About Cinescope

Hi there! My name is Chad Hopkins, and I've been podcasting on and off for the last 7 years. You may have heard me on my other podcast, An American Workplace, where we watched and talked about every episode of NBC's The Office. Now that we've finished that, I'm back to the first podcast I launched on my own, Cinescope.

The Cinescope Podcast was born from the idea that a film doesn’t have to be flawless to be "perfect" or to be enjoyed. Our goal is not to criticize or to assign ratings but rather to celebrate the movies we love, exploring story, characters, music, and relevance to the world around us.

Each week, I, creator and host Chad Hopkins, and a constantly growing cast of guest hosts talk about one of our favorite movies. The show is a ton of fun to make and be a part of, but it's also a lot of work and a lot of money. That's where you come in!

Patreon allows fans of content like you to directly support the show with a monthly monetary donation, and I return the favor by giving you a little something extra. Depending on your level of contribution, you will be given access to additional content every week, and you'll also occasionally have opportunity to influence what makes it into the show regarding movie choices. This content will only be available to those who sign up as Patrons!

The podcast as it exists now will not change. If you decide that you don't want to or are unable to donate, you will still be able to download the weekly episode every week. The Cinescope Podcast is a labor of love and is something that I plan on doing for a long time. However, any donation you can make would go toward podcast hosting/website fees, acquiring/viewing new movies, and eventually purchasing better equipment to make the podcast as high-quality as it can be.

Rewards are tentative to start; they are subject to tweaking as I decide the best ways for me to pay you back for your support! Thank you all so much!
