The Retronauts podcast has been around for 10 years, dishing facts and opinions on video game history. Now it's time to take the show to the next level. We — hosts Bob Mackey and Jeremy Parish, that is — want to turn Retronauts into a weekly show, a daily website, and more. And we're here on Patreon because we need your help to do it!

Between web hosting costs, studio time, travel fees, and other expenses, we need your support in order to keep the podcast machine up and running. In return for your contributions, we'll continue creating the best show we possibly can. It's not just a one-sided relationship, though! In addition to getting early podcast access, your support can also earn you cool rewards twice a year, and more! Please help us make Retronauts a full-time gig!
