Hello Patreonizers,

My name is Evan Wecksell and I am a comedian, singer-songwriter and even an SAT/ACT tutor. As a comedian I have performed in 46 states at hundreds of clubs, colleges and private parties. You may recognize me from those pop culture talking head shows such as VH1's "I Love the 80s" and E!'s "30 Outrageous Celebrity Feuds."

I had been thinking about having my own podcast for a few years, but didn't know which creative direction to take it. I am a huge fan of New York sports, WWE, comedy, TV, movies and politics, but I didn't want to back myself into one category. Then I thought about how I used to work in human resources and had a knack to interview anyone and make them feel important (or create awkward pauses). The question now was where do I find my random people to interview? The answer: FACEBOOK.

I went on a very early Facebook binge back in 2004 where I added thousands of friends, i.e. strangers, whether they went to my college (Tufts University) or just had the same name as me. Even though Facebook ended up capping the friend count at 5,000 I had built a friend list that continues to evolve thanks to my frequent traveling.

I don't know who a lot of my Facebook friends are, or I may have not talked to someone for over a decade, but it sure would be fun to reconnect and see how smart (or crazy) they got. And socially, I match up pretty well with this "Family Guy" clip:


Another purpose of this podcast is to give someone, whose life/job does not include doing interviews, an extended opportunity to open up and voice their opinions and hot takes on anything that's on their mind. They would then have something cool to share with their friends and if they were ever searched on iTunes, their name would come up!

So please support this show as this is the biggest DIY project I have ever undertaken. There is a wide variety of patron perks and I would be thrilled to have you as part of "The Awkward Army." It would be as epic as the intro video, which is the podcast's trailer.

Much love,
Evan

If we can reach $100 per month, I can cover the costs to put my episodes up on a media hosting website. Unfortunately, I cannot just upload episodes to my website, but I have a great service I am learning to use.
