About

Thanks so much for supporting me! This Patreon has some great exclusive rewards but what you're really doing by backing me is giving me the opportunity and the encouragement to make more things that will be available for everyone. 

For those who don't know me: I'm a creator who lives in Seattle and I've been making podcasts and internet videos for over a decade. This Patreon exists specifically to support my podcast Culturally Relevant and my YouTube Channel

Here's how I envision these rewards playing out. Your feedback/reaction is welcome!

Access to Community Chat - I'll create a new Discord/Slack channel for Patrons. I've really appreciated a lot of the connections I've been able to make through the various chat groups I'm a part of and I'm hopeful that this one will lead to interesting new interactions too.

Occasional behind-the-scenes content - Creating videos and podcasts sometimes results in interesting artistic choices. Where possible, I'll post about how these choices happened.

Early access to bonus podcasts and other experiments - I create lots of audio/video stuff, much of which is interesting but doesn't really fit into any of my existing channels. You'll get a Patreon-specific RSS-feed and receive exclusive early access to this material. This will include stuff like:
  • Bonus TV discussion podcasts
  • Bonus movie review podcasts
  • Bonus podcasts about what married life is like in quarantine, featuring @joyofnapping
  • Monologues on the nature of politics, religion, life, and existence
And whatever else you might be interested in! 

Monthly Exclusive Live Chat - Once per month, I'll do a live, Patrons-only broadcast where I'll respond to your questions in real time. Patron questions can also be submitted in advance for those who can't attend. 

Monthly movie watch-along (plus early access to recorded commentary) - Once per month, we'll figure out a way to all watch a movie together. I will plan to record myself (and possible guests!) watching the movie and commenting on it, while chatting with you. I will provide early access to the final audio/video for ALL backers.

Your name in the credits for (virtually) every one of my YouTube videos - I'll put your name in the credits of all of my YouTube videos. The reason this says "virtually" is because there will probably be a couple videos per month where this will not make sense or be feasible. Otherwise, you can expect to see your name there pretty much all the time!

Get an audio shout-out on my podcast (Culturally Relevant) once per month - I'll give your name an audio shout you out on my podcast once per month.

Finally, a couple of notes:
  • After seeing how this launch goes, I may tweak the tiers a bit in the next few weeks. If/when I do, I'll post an update explaining exactly how I'm changing them.
  • No one will be charged until September, which is when rewards will begin being distributed
Goals
352 of 1,000 patrons
If I reach 1000 Patrons, I will watch the Joss Whedon original series FIREFLY and make something (a podcast episode, a video, etc.) reviewing it.
