About Jeff Garvin & Dan Zarzana


We are Jeff & Dan, the hosts of The Hero’s Journey podcast. Thanks for coming to our Patreon page!

Jeff is a writer—he’s the author of Symptoms of Being Human (HarperCollins, 2016.) Dan is the book blogger behind bookthump. com. The two of us met in junior high and quickly bonded over our love of stories. We both graduated from film school (back when it still involved actual film) and went on to pursue other careers.

In 2017, we created The Hero’s Journey podcast. Each month, we sit down in front of our microphones in Studio Z (AKA Dan’s apartment) and discuss a different book or movie through the mythical lens of Joseph Campbell's The Hero with A Thousand Faces. We also sample and review a different adult beverage each month, which Dan selects based on the theme of the episode.

Our mission is to leave you inspired, entertained, and maybe a little smarter than you were before you listened.

By becoming a patron for as little as $3 per month, you'll gain access to a variety of rewards:

  • COMPANIONS! (by becoming a member of our exclusive Patreon community)
  • TREASURE! (in the form of exclusive audio and video content)
  • POWER! (the right to vote on the subjects of future episodes)
  • IMMORTALITY! (having your name mentioned during each episode.)

Thanks for considering becoming a patron. Check out the tiers to the right, and scroll down to see the kind of content available when you join us. And, as always:

Journey on!
