Hello and welcome to Doof! Media. We’re Scott Daly and Matt Freeman and we make podcasts and online content exploring Movies, TV, Books and the stories we love. We’re growing each and every month and we’d like to invite you to be part of our community!

Doof?
Yep. We were looking for a name that involved both of the co-creators of this site but also reflected our ridiculousness. So we took the D from Daly and the F from Freeman and we put two Os in between them. All the best companies have two Os in them.

The Shows
We currently have three weekly shows and two monthly shows. These are available on iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play, YouTube as well as the Doof! Media website

The Doofcast
Our flagship show that covers as broad a range of topics as we feel like. From discussions over new movies to the latest video games, to other podcasts we love we use this podcast as kind of a carte blanche to talk about whatever we feel like. Previous topics have included Game of Thrones, The Adventure Zone Podcast, in depth episodes deconstructing the works of our favorite directors, and Doof University, where Matt and Scott teach you some things about story and structure.

We’ve Got Ward/Worm:
Our most popular show here at Doof Media and the one most responsible for our growth. If you’re reading this page right now it’s probably because of this podcast. We’ve Got Worm is our in-depth analysis of the hit web serial Worm by John “Wildbow” McCrae. Each week we analyze one arc of the book, explore the themes, the structure, and what makes the work great. We completed our read of Worm at the end of 2017 and are now working our way through its sequel Ward as it is released.

Vow To View:
A show about marriage and the things we make each other watch. Each week, Scott and Elyse Daly select movies they love and force each other to watch them. Then they sit down and talk about the movies and what they learned about each other. 

Deep In Pact
Deep In Pact is brought to Doof! Media by our friends and partners from over at Media M.D, Elliot and Rueben. On the 5th anniversary of each chapter of Wildbow’s web serial Pact, we do a deep dive into the chapter, analyzing and recapping Wildbow’s most underappreciated story. Join us for a celebration of the dark world of Pact, as Reuben re-experiences Blake’s journey, and Elliot is horrified by it for the first time.

The Book Club:
Our newest show, The Book Club is a monthly live streamed discussion between Matt and Scott discussing a novel chosen by our Patreon community. Each month, Patrons can vote on the book, submit questions, and then all can attend the YouTube Livestream to join in on the discussion. Episodes will also be released on the Doofcast feed after the end of the live stream.

The Costs:
And here’s the part that you’re all probably wondering about. How much does it cost us to keep this thing going? Producing and hosting podcasts is unfortunately not cheap, and the more shows we produce the more those costs go up. Right now here’s what it costs us to produce our content each month:
  • $50 on podcast hosting
  • $10 on website hosting
  • $40 on recording/editing software and equipment
  • $50 on books, TV shows, and movie purchases

On top of that, we like to give some of that money back to the community we love and respect so much. We’re hosting regular fan art contests for our We’ve Got Worm podcast that results in cash and other prizes. Part of your support goes directly toward funding these prizes.

But by far the most costly part of producing these shows is the time investment. In order to deliver the quality content you guys expect we spend a lot of time producing each episode. As an example, here’s approximately how much each episode of We’ve Got Worm takes to produce:
  • 4 hours reading time per person
  • 6 hours on show prep and scripts per person
  • 2 hours recording the episode per person
  • 1 hour editing the episode
  • 1 hour on art, show notes, publishing, and promotion.

And that’s just one of our weekly shows! Our dream is to one day be able to do this full time, but in the meantime, we’ve got to juggle these time investments with our day jobs. This is why your support is absolutely critical. Not only does it encourage, focus and prioritize us, but each and every dollar you contribute gets us a step closer to our goal: To grow, expand, and spend our lives talking about great stories and why we love them.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit our Patreon page! If you’d like to support passionate independent criticism and analysis of great art we encourage you to pledge your support to Doof! Media. In return, we’ve got some great exclusive bonuses for each and every one of you. Thank you!

Includes Discord rewards
Doof Troop
$10 or more per month
At this tier you're a member of the Doof Troop. Which is like a cool gang where dogs act silly and talk to each other. They also wear sunglasses, I guess.

This grants you access to our discord server, a special shout out, and access to our monthly Q&A sessions where you can ask us anything you want!

Includes Discord rewards
Doof Warrior
$20 or more per month
At this level, you climb aboard a giant speaker car and play a badass guitar/flame thrower while jumping around on bungee cords. 


You get all the previous rewards as well as the ability to choose a topic for an episode of The Doofcast! Every time we have an open slot on our show calendar we will reach out to one of our Doof Warriors to pick a topic and we'll do it (Within reason, of course). You'll get producer credit on that show and a special shout out!


 Note: We are requiring Patrons to have donated at this level for at least 1 month before they'll be eligible for the reward, but once you hit that 1 month, you'll be recorded on a list and we will get to you eventually.

Supreme Leader Doof
$45 or more per month
Ok, this one doesn't actually make a whole lot of sense, but I find this picture of Snoke hilarious and rather Doofy. So that's you now. You might not get a sufficient backstory, but honestly who cares about that. You get all of the previous rewards and also get to select the book for one of our monthly book clubs. At least until you get chopped in half by a light saber.
