Hello and welcome to our Patreon page located just a short boat trip past the Citadel of Crazytown, now located on a mysterious island off the coast. If your boat is a-rocking, we promise we won’t come a-knocking. We're just so glad you decided to visit and hope you'll join us on for the infinite offseason tour, happening right here on Patreon.

What is The Storm?


The Storm began as a Game of Thrones podcast, but now that it's over, your hosts Joanna RobinsonNeil Miller, and Dave Gonzales have moved on to a massive rewatch of ABC's hit show Lost (plus a few other fun things that may pop up as we go along). Join us weekly in your favorite podcast app and we'll give you our non-spoiler (Calm) and spoiler-heavy (Storm) takes on one of the most significant shows of the modern era.

Why Patreon?


We absolutely love making this show, but as the audience has grown, so have our hosting fees and without the help of our wonderful Patreon subscribers we'd be operating at a significant financial loss. Though you can’t always see them, we also dedicate hours to prepping for each episode including watching entire seasons of television or wide-ranging film franchises in order to bring you as much cultural context as we can.

There’s time spent reading emails, studying background material, editing the show, and selecting that oh-so-perfect intro and outro music. There are also a number of expenses related to running the show: website hosting, podcast distribution, recording equipment and software, and any number of other incidentals. Patreon support helps offset those costs.

Patreon also gives us a way to keep all of our regular content free to listeners while also sharing bonus material and opportunities with our amazing supporters.

Namaste From The Island!


Thank you from the bottom of our stone hearts for listening to this podcast and growing this community into such a special place. We love our role as guides through the great pop culture storms of our time and all of you make it even better. You’ve taken that joy and enthusiasm and spread it beyond our original topic in ways we couldn't have anticipated.

If you like what we do, please tell your friends, family, and friendly neighborhood pop culture obsessives. And if you are able to support us here on Patreon, we'd truly and deeply appreciate it.

With all our love,
Joanna, Neil, and Da7e
