About Chris

Hey everyone!  

This is Chris, creator of the Samurai Archives website ( and producer/member of the Samurai Archives Japanese History Podcast.  Thanks for listening to the Podcast, and thanks for dropping by.  Our goal has always been to bring our interest - Japanese history - to the masses, and your support helps us get this done. The podcast is basically a passion project, we're not part of a network, and we don't have any sponsors.  We're 100% listener supported, and whatever isn't covered comes straight out of my pocket.  The Patreon page has been set up so that you can help support the Samurai Archives podcast, forum, and website with whatever amount per episode you wish.  We normally release podcast episodes every 30-60 days, so how about pledging a buck or two per episode?  Depending on your tier, we'll keep you updated with info on future podcasts, let you vote on future episode topics, give you early access to  new episodes, or other benefits.  Take a look at the right side of the page for more details.  

The show of support by our Patrons is the engine that drives and motivates the podcast.  We appreciate the support!


And special thanks to Patrons Luis, Cody Makua Burks, Marty Brennan, Kelsey, Patrick Stewart, Joshua Badgley, and Dennis McDaniel!

This goal will allow me to purchase music and professional voice actors to create a new intro to the podcast and add more audio flair, including voice actors to read quotes from historical figures, and other ideas that I have brewing in my head.
