Hey! I'm Shaun, and if you're here, I assume you know me from Twitter (@NoTotally). If not, then probably my (currently on hiatus but coming back soon, I promise!) film and social issues podcast, No, Totally!.

If none of that's ringing a bell, you may have caught my closing keynote at Affect Conf 2017 in Portland? Or, possibly, maybe you read me talking about linguistics, race, and/or representation, for publications like The New Yorker, The Huffington Post, Splinter, USA Today, The New Statesman, or The Village Voice? Could've been Cosmopolitan: they once erroneously claimed that I got into a Twitter fight with John Mayer.

Regardless of what led you here, I'm truly grateful and honored that you're reading these words on this website. Please, take a moment to absorb my full gratitude. I'll wait.

Okay, so here's how this thing works. It's really simple. A lot of what I do that's of value- podcasting, say, or writing long-form about mental health and social justice- isn't really considered as such by the people who might typically compensate me for the time I spend on those things.

But those are important things! I have and will continue doing them for free, but if you're someone who finds anything I do valuable and can afford to spare some of the cash a better society might be paying me, you're in the exact right place. And, in exchange, you get to read something original from me, accessible only to patrons, every week!

Whether you're here to pledge or are already a patron, I'm staggered by your kindness and generosity, and can't thank you enough for your support. I'm not tearing up, you're tearing up.

<3,
Shaun

*Please note that pledges on this page are counted every Tuesday, but are charged in one big batch near the beginning of every month. I know that's a bit confusing, but it basically means that, if you pledge $1, then in a month where there are four Tuesdays, you'll get charged $4 some time within the first few days of the month. Some months have five Tuesdays, and in those months you'll be charged $5, but also be granted superpowers!

*Sorry, sorry, the superpowers thing isn't true.
Rewards
Patron-only content!
$1 or more per week
Access to what basically amounts to my weekly, private blog, where I write about whatever's interesting me or bumming me out. That usually involves movies, media critique and analysis, or mental health, but anything's fair game.


For fans of the show, there's also occasional bonus podcast content, like outtakes or entirely new, previously unreleased episodes!

You know what's cool? No matter when you pledge, you get immediate access to the entire back catalog!

Goals
100% complete
Our monthly hosting cost is $25: $20 for podcast hosting and distribution, and $5 for our website. If we are pledged $6.25 per episode, we will NO LONGER LOSE MONEY doing this! That would be the most amazing event since cats learned how to talk (a fact that they've now hidden from history; genius cats)!
