I make reviews on Youtube...kind of. I guess the point of the channel is to not simply “review” things but to talk about moments in media that resonate with us as human beings. I can’t think of anything more boring than making a video that goes, “I saw this movie. It was great.” Everything I write begins with the ambition of forming a connection between a piece of media to a person’s heart. Or short of that, to find something resonant to say. Why is this thing MEANINGFUL to us? Or, short of that, penis jokes.

Unlock exclusive content like the Patreon feed, where you can read all my nonsense reasons why I haven't gotten the new video done yet! And I will share a Patron-only cat video per month! Huzzah! 

Also, get the Passion of the Nerd Q&A podcast, one month early. A mostly informal (but I’m sure I’ll overproduce it) podcast where me and an occasional guest chat about movies and TV and I answer all of the Patron questions from the past month. Think of it like a diary that comes out of my word hole! 
Includes Discord rewards
The Episode Hangout Tier
$5 or more per month 38 patrons
Access to a monthly Google Hangout with me, Jack & Jess (when they can swing it) where we'll be chatting about a specific episode/topic together, decided a week or so in advance. These hangouts will be streamed to the YouTube channel.

The 'I Read To You' Tier!
$10 or more per month 24 of 50 patrons
A voice clip of me reading a bit of dialogue or performing a piece of your choice. Voicemail. Whatever you like. 2 minutes maximum. Clean. No advertisements. Perk resets every 6 months. These take a little time to produce. I've been turning them into little videos so, be patient with me.

I may also edit these on stream, simply because I edit more efficiently while doing so. But those stream replays and the final product will not be posted to the channel.

The Scripty McScripterson Tier
$25 or more per month 3 of 5 patrons
Each previously mentioned perk plus a printed script of your favorite video on the channel signed, with handwritten notes by me. A sort of script-commentary track. Resets every six months.

I make and publish a review of any piece of media you want. I can’t promise more than a 1 minute edited review, but I will set that as minimum. 6 hours of total content to review maximum. Clean - no porn or extreme violence. A BIG thing to keep in mind here is my review will be 100 percent honest. If I can’t stand the thing you request the review of, the review is going to reflect that. Perk resets once every six months.
