About Pat Contri & Ian Ferguson

Every week Pat Contri & Ian Ferguson discuss the latest in video game news, movies, comics, pro wrestling, retro game and collecting topics, and take Q&A from the audience! It's the Completely Unnecessary Podcast!

We recently passed our 100th episode landmark thanks to tremendous help from our patrons!

For over four years the Completely Unnecessary Podcast has been podcasting every two weeks covering all the topics you see above, providing fun times and entertainment for many. Unfortunately, podcasts are sometimes tough to generate revenue to pay for equipment and keep the lights on. Sponsors can help, but they are difficult to get and keep, while regular expenses like hosting fees, studio costs, new mics/equipment, etc. have to be accounted for. This is where you can help us, while also getting some bonus perks and content on top!

What is Patreon?
Patreon lets fans support their favorite creators by becoming patrons. Unlike other fundraising services, which raise for a single big event, Patreon is for creators who create a stream of smaller works.

Where will the funds go?
Besides direct support to Ian & Pat, funds from the Patreon will be used to go towards better gear to improve the visual quality of the show, podcast hosting fees, studio costs, help with trips to events where we record live podcasts and meet fans, and also go towards additional video content, such as a Let's Play show and the often-spoken and rumored legendary Ian's Happy Handhelds review show!

Let's Play!

We will act on an idea we had after the first NES Marathon and put out a Let's Play video at least once a month. This will be a show featuring Pat & Ian as they play games and have fun at each other's expense, and while also educating on the games they are playing with trivial knowledge, etc. Think of the fun times had during the NES Marathon... now think of it on YouTube!
