Who are you guys?

Clockworks is Paul and Jan Moffett, and we make podcasts. Paul is an academic, Jan is a writer and library worker, and we both love fiction.

What would I be supporting exactly?

Currently we produce two podcasts. Clockworks: A Legion Podcast, is a critical episode-by-episode analysis of the tv series Legion, supplemented with interviews with some of the people who made the show. Clockworks is our flagship podcast, and that's where our name comes from.

Clockworks: A Legion Podcast airs Mondays. Check out our Clockworks archives for episodes about the first two seasons of Legion, as well as interviews with people behind the scenes on Legion and bonus episodes will be focusing on media that is related to Legion in some way. We've talked about Legion creator Noah Hawley's other series Fargo, some of the movies and tv shows that Legion reminds us of, like Pushing Daisies and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and Legion comic books.

Our second podcast, which airs weekly on Fridays, is Way Too Seriously: A Critical Analysis of Kids' Movies. On each episode of WTS we talk about a children's movie and take its themes and social perspective seriously. Some may even say, too seriously.

What do I get if I support you?

If you're here it's because you like what we do, and we couldn't be more grateful. Thank you! We started this so that we could make something together, but if people are listening that is an overwhelming honour.

If you support us, we want you to know how much we appreciate you, and the best way we know of doing that is making you special things, so all patrons get access to special exclusive podcast episodes. Even at the $1 level you will get access to two extra exclusive podcasts:

1) A weekly bonus trivia challenge to go with each episode of WTS. Paul and Jan quiz each other on trivia related to whatever movie we're talking about this week. That's an extra podcast every single week!

2) Periodic episodes of "Current Obsession," a podcast where Jan and Paul talk about whatever cultural artifact has been occupying our minds lately. So far we've talked about The Handmaid's Tale, Fargo, composing music, cross-stitching, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Broadchurch, Ms. Marvel, Harry Potter, podcasts, Danny Rand, Bob's Burgers, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Object Lessons, advice columns, The Bright Sessions, The Last Man on Earth, and Jane the Virgin. This podcast is updated irregularly, whenever we have something we feel is worth talking about.

At the $5 or up level you get access to periodic One-Shot episodes about a movie, tv show, book, or other piece of culture. So far we have recorded episodes about Logan, The Defenders Netflix series, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and Wonder Woman!

These rewards aside, you know and we know that if you're supporting us it's because you like what we do. Much as we began this for the joy of it, we can only afford to continue if we have support. If you like what we do here, you want us to keep it up, and to keep improving at it. That's what we want too.
