TL;DR
We're a podcasting network with a focus on what we call "geek culture". Expect discussions about things like movies, television, comic books, MMORPG gaming, collectibles, history, science and technology, board games, random interesting facts, and everything that comes in between.

Please note:
Patreon backing levels are in USD. If you're backing from outside of the US, please remember to do the currency conversion.

What You're Getting:
Every month, we publish (numbers are averages since months are usually not exactly 4 weeks long):
  • ~20 episodes of Geekdays, our daily geek culture news update.
  • ~4 episodes of The MMOsketeers, our weekly show about MMORPG gaming.
  • ~4 episodes of The History Files, a weekly show about History.
  • ~4 episodes of How To Comic, a weekly show about getting into comic books.
  • ~4 episodes of Take Five, a weekly show about ... a word.
  • ~4 episodes of Movieing On, the show where we watch movies from 1999 or earlier and discuss them.
  • ~4 episodes of Coffee With Jeff, a show in which you hear things you probably never knew.
  • ~2 episodes of Half-Pints, Whole-Notes, the Internet's only show about beer and music.
  • ~2 episodes of Who's Who, the CSICON Network's very own show on Doctor Who.
  • ~2 episodes of Nothing Important Happened Today, where Breki and Petter talk about how they became the way they are.
  • ~2 episodes of Gordon's Gun Closet, wherein Gordon Frye discusses historical and otherwise interesting weapons.
  • 1 episode of The Kingston Legacy, where Josh and Rob talk about the weird side of the Internet and the world.
  • ... and much, much more.
With an average run-time of about half an hour per episode, we're creating about seven hours worth of content every single week for you to listen to. 

Which is where you come in!
Running a podcasting network is surprisingly expensive. Even when we have our servers running on Digital Ocean's wonderful hardware and serve our MP3 files from the snappy CDN that the folks over at CDN77 offer, the costs still add up - and quickly. To offset this, we need help from you. Every single dollar you pledge goes towards our web hosting, recording equipment, etc.

The entry level pledge of $1.00 is extremely low when you consider what it is you're getting. At this level, you're giving us less than 4 cents for every hour of content that we release, which is far below minimum wage. But that's why there are so many of you. It adds up.

You're such a lovely person. If you pledge five dollars a month for us to continue creating our podcasts, we will be incredibly grateful. Really, we won't even give you passive-aggressive hints about how most of your money is disappearing in credit card processing fees, we'll just enjoy your love for the network.
