Talking Reckless is creating gaming and D&D podcasts, live streams and video content

Hi! My name is Matt Eades and I, along with my cast of co-hosts, have been obsessing over video games here on the internet for over a decade.

We really, REALLY love to play and discuss all types of gaming. So much so that we started recording a weekly podcast in 2008 that is still going today! We also live stream every day, record a variety of specialty podcasts (see also: Game of Thrones and Toking Reckless) and are constantly looking to do more, bigger, cooler content.

In May of 2018, I decided to try and live my dream and take Talking Reckless from a part-time hobby to a full time career. All pledges go directly to paying cost of living, while anything extra does directly into improving our equipment and setup so our stuff can look and sound better, and so we can produce more of it easier.

We don't run ads, don't do sponsored streams and have never, ever in our 275+ episodes been beholden to anyone except the viewer. I very much want to keep Talking Reckless ad free and this Patreon is an avenue to that.

Thank you for your support. It means more to me than I can ever put into words. I was put on this earth to love video games and am incredibly lucky and honored to get to do what I love every day, and to share that love with a community that has become my family.

Goals
$570 of $1,500 per month
This goal represents basic needs met and we can be on-air every day and we can cover new video game releases!

Talking Reckless is a full-time job! All money earned goes directly to bills and expenses, and should we ever surpass our goals any extra funds goes directly into improving our equipment and stream setup so we can do bigger, cooler stuff more often (like getting twelve hour game of the year shows onto the podcast feed, improving and repairing equipment and being able to produce new types of content).

Having basic needs met means we can also cover new releases. Currently, to make ends meet, we have to avoid anything too popular on Twitch, as our little channel needs to grow to survive. Having a steady income that covers cost of living means we can focus less on growing the channel and play whatever the heck we want to play - mostly brand new releases.

With your support we can focus on what we know best - rambling about video games!
