Just Who the Hell Do You Think You Are?

I’m a PhD dropout who makes videos on the internet, mostly discussing social justice issues and adjacent topics. My political aim is to counterbalance the hatred toward progressive movements that is so common online. Stylistically, I try to appeal to a wide audience and avoid merely preaching to the choir. I try to make the videos I'd want to watch: well-produced, informative, funny, and entertaining.

And What Are You Going To Do with My Money?

Your support enables me to buy costumes, makeup, props, software, and audio/video equipment. It also now enables me to do this as a full-time job, writing, recording, editing and publishing high-quality videos.

Okay, I’m Sold. But What’s in It for Me?

Depending on their reward level, patrons get updates about what I’m working on, access to outtake videos and AMA live streams, recognition in my video credits, and an invitation to a monthly Discord hangout.

How Often Should I Expect New Videos?

I consistently do two per month. Sometimes I do just one, when I get inspired to do a really big, demanding project. But I don't anticipate ever doing more than two.
