Hello. Brian Brushwood and Jason Murphy here. For 10 years we've explored, tested, and demystified all things underhanded, dangerous, and badass. You've seen us both on Scam SchoolHacking the System, and now Modern Rogue.

...and we 100%, absolutely, positively owe it all to you. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for making everything that's come before now possible.

The time has come to build a proper studio and make the Modern Rogue our real-life day jobs, and we need your help to make it happen.

With your patronage, we've already been able to:
  • Purchase a 7 acre property for complete autonomy, this is an important one.
  • Build out our website with many new articles.
  • Provide reliable closed captions for every episode going forward.
  • Get equipment upgrades, with now publishing episodes in 4K.
  • Hire another editor to publish videos more often.
  • Better fund episodes, including a few that otherwise would not have been possible.
But we're hoping it won't stop there, we would still like to:
  • Afford better safety gear (especially to cover Brian's hands).
  • Fly in special guests and experts.
  • Travel out to shoot special episodes on-location.
  • Build a truly roguish studio set.

Behind the scenes, we're a team of a half-dozen people who want to eat, sleep, and breath Modern Rogue. It's going to take support from fellow rogues like yourself to make this sustainable and a living project that can grow to new heights of the insane, ridiculous, and sublime.

You're gonna love it, and we want you to be our boss.

What's the Modern Rogue?

Equal parts gentleman, warrior, and scoundrel, what would a 21st century Modern Rogue know?

In short: Everything. 

How to hotwire a car, how to talk your way out of a speeding ticket, counterfeiting, how to properly appreciate whisky, how to craft improvised weaponry--the Modern Rogue would even debunk the secrets of the supernatural!

Our goal is to produce an unbelievably extensive catalog of fascinating and dangerous knowledge, an Encyclopedia Brittanica of everything you're not supposed to know.

We want you on our team, and we want you to have a blast being a part of this. Whether it's your ideas, your votes, or (yes) your cash, we need you to help us hit this moonshot goal of turning Modern Rogue into a Mythbusters-level franchise. 

Join the team and become one of us today. Become a bonafide Modern Rogue and you'll get to contribute ideas for shows, workshop new episodes, see behind the scenes, and have a direct line to the Modern Rogue team, including other rogues like yourself.
