Welcome to the official Patreon for the Below the Fold! If you like these videos, and you want to help continue to make them happen, you’re in the right place!

Purpose of Patreon
Patreon is a platform that lets people (patrons) support people (creators) they appreciate.
As a patron, you get to choose your monthly level of support, and in doing so gain access to exclusive “rewards” that are only available to Patreon supporters.

I started a Patreon, because, big reveal, no one is paying me to do this, and monetization through ads isn’t going to pay off anytime soon since I try to make inclusive, thoughtful videos that stress the importance of nuance. BUT, we live in the era extreme confirmation bias and polarizing content seems to be king.

I genuinely believe there is value in educating on topics that aren’t heavily covered in a way that builds understanding and empathy while still making you laugh. If you’d like to take part of this journey, it would be vastly appreciated if you'd consider making a small monthly contribution to support growing Below the Fold.

What will I do with your money?
Besides pay my bookie back?

First, it helps me break even on the money I spend on each video. It may look like they are free and easy to make, but from conception to promotion, I spend a couple hundred bucks and approximately 25 hours per video. Don’t get me wrong, this is one of the most fulfilling endeavors I have ever taken on, money or no money, but still, it would be nice to not go broke doing it.

Second, once I am breaking even, the money will go towards turning this thing into a more professional operation and to expand the scale and scope of the content. That means more videos, better videos, different kinds of videos, better equipment, better software, more fake mustaches, etc.

Finally, all the cool kids have podcasts these days, and I’m nothing if not a cool kid. Which is to say, I would love to start a podcast that interviews people who are making a difference in the different topics I address in the videos. To do that well, I would love to invest in a professional editor to ensure quality and efficiency of getting that out.

What’s in it for you?

In general, every Patron gets access to the Patron-only feed, which will be filled with exclusive access to:

  • Behind-the-Scenes, Lens, and Bloopers: See the production process for yourself! Any making-of's, blooper reels, or special behind the scenes videos will be available to you here. Lens is a Snapchat-like feature on Patreon reserved only for patrons.
  • Live Streams: Occasionally I might do an unscheduled meet up and Q&A type live stream. They will only be available to patrons after the stream is complete.
  • Early Access: You'll get to see the videos several hours (or days if I'm that ambitious) before anyone else! Give me your feedback, suggest corrections, get that top-level comment, whatever you want.
Check out the reward tiers to the right to see the breakdown of what you will get depending on your level of generosity. 

I can't make a monthly commitment, but I still want to support you!
No worries - My videos are and always will be free for everyone! This is a completely optional way of helping me out. If you can’t make a monthly commitment, you can always send a one time gift to me on paypal:

But even watching and sharing my content is support. Watch the whole video. Write comments. Share on your networks. In an Attention Economy, spending your time helping to get more eyeballs on my work is still supporting the cause and I appreciate it every time.
$2 of $600 per month
Break even goal -- if I can make $600 a month, I will break even on what it costs me each month to research, write, perform, produce, edit and promote four episodes a month.
