per video

Note: I take pledges on a "per video" basis but I will NEVER take pledges off you more than four times in a month.

If I make more than four videos in a month (I often do) then the remainder will are set not to trigger pledges on Patreon.

What do I do?

I make videos on religion, atheism and sociopolitical issues
My aim is to lay out my thoughts as best I can and, in doing so, to stimulate others to go away and have the same fascinating arguments with themselves that I have had with myself.

Why support this channel?

My aim is to make videos which have both high levels of nuance, balance and detail yet are light-hearted and down to earth. To do this takes time, both in terms of scoping out the video and then recording and editing.

My time is precious: I work 42 hours a week as a professional firefighter, with a young baby boy and a wife with a reduced work commitment. As a result the time I devote to YouTube HAS to pay to continue. If it does not then, sadly, that time will have to be spent earning money in another way. That is something I desperately want to avoid because I enjoy making videos and enjoy the exchanges that result.

Additionally, with the help of my existing patrons my output has already seen improvements and looking forward I hope to make my channel a place where more and more people will go to be entertained, challenged and also to find good debate amongst the comments section.
Your pledges make that possible because your pledges allow me to spend considerably more time taking the kernel of an idea for a video and fully realising it as a project, rather than rushing it out in an hour and a half because that is all that I can justify.

What is in it for me?


Good question (though I asked it on your behalf so don't get too smug!).

I ask for pledges on a 'per video' basis. As a matter of principal I will only ever set as pledged those videos that justify your support and never more than four pledged videos in any month.
Any other output during a month will be unpledged.

All patrons get access to my patron-only videos. These are something I take seriously and, because I actually ENJOY making them, you can be assured they will be a regular feature of the patreon feed. These videos detail future plans (upcoming videos), additional subjects that I am not minded to discuss publically via my channel and thought-provoking additional content that runs alongside some of my YouTube videos.

Patrons who pledge $4 (or more) per video get early access to my planned videos.

Patrons who pledge $8 (or more) per video get the right to ask me whatever they like and I will give my thoughts in the next Patron-only video. If you enjoy my output and have questions to ask regarding something I have covered in a video this is potentially a very useful thing. It is also not a one-off, you can ask me to clarify or give my thoughts as often as you wish (within reason).

if you have gotten this far, thank you for reading whether or not you then choose to pledge - though getting this far means you are a sufficiently bloviating windbag, nine times out of ten, that my channel will be like manna from heaven ;)

Tiers
Pledge $1 or more per video
By pledging $1 or more you will have access to additional patreon-only videos, providing behind-the-scenes commentary or thoughts on issues that won't feature on my public YouTube channel
Pledge $4 or more per video
By pledging $4 or more you will have access to additional patreon-only videos, providing behind-the-scenes commentary or thoughts on issues that won't feature on my public YouTube channel.

In addition, you will have early access to planned YouTube videos (about half of my output is uploaded a day or more early) allowing you to watch and leave comments early. All the better to get involved in discussions.

In addition, you can also specify any subject (within reason, though I can't think of anything outside of reason right now!) you would like me to discuss or comment on in the patreon-only videos.
Goals
$249 of $300 per video
At present I pay for three days childcare per month to record the material I have prepared. At $300 per video I can add a couple more days to that total: great for my output and for my baby boy's socialisation to boot!
