About Doof! Media

Hello and welcome to Doof! Media. We’re a group of passionate people 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. Our founder's names are Scott Daly and Matt Freeman, 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 Current Show Lineup
We currently have five 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 Deconstructing Directors, where Matt and Scott dive into each and every film from some of the most talented filmmakers out there. 

Kingslingers
Kingslingers is a book analysis and review podcast exploring the depths of Stephen King’s epic saga The Dark Tower. Constant Reader Scott leads first-time reader Matt through all 8 books in King’s magnum opus. Come join our ka-tet!

Pale Reflections / 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. Elliot and Reuben have now moved on to covering Wildbow's Pale as it is released

Decomposing Worm
In Decomposing Worm, Matias and Clarence take a higher level approach to analysis of Wildbow’s original wonderful web serial. After dividing Worm into six 300,000 word chunks, each week four-time Worm veteran Matias and literary extraordinaire Clarence cover one of Worm’s ‘books’, alternating between Close Reading and Essay episodes. Because a single hundred hour Worm analysis podcast wasn’t enough.

The Book Club:
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.

Do The Write Thing
Every week Jarvis and Matias and sometimes a special guest have to Do the Write Thing: set a timer for 30 minutes and write a complete short story built around three randomly generated words. Then, we read the stories on the podcast and talk about what we’ve learned in writing them, making off-kilter jokes along the way. We also read and comment on listener submitted stories, so please, write along with us.

Mmm... Whatcha Say
A week by week recap and discussion podcast going through each and every episode of the hit mid-2000s teen drama: The O.C. Each week, Scott and Elyse Daly will watch an episode and get in front of some microphones to talk about these wacky teens and how old they make us feel.

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!

An Original Audio Narrative
We do more than just critique other people's work! At this level we will launch our first Doof! Media original content: a serialized audio narrative podcast written by our very own Matt Freeman and produced by Doof! Media. We can't tell you much more about it right now, but reach this goal and you'll get to see hear what we've got!
