Hello everybody, and welcome to The Polymath.

Who is this kid, and what the heck is a Polymath?  My name is Roan.  I'm 24 years old, I enjoy reading, watching films, learning new things, teaching, video editing and much much more.  The Polymath is my attempt at taking all of my favorite things and rolling them into one big delicious ball of a career.  But more specifically The Polymath is a channel on which I create video essays on things that have fascinated me, whether they be things like metacognition, philosophy, film, literature, the list is practically endless.  

How often can you expect content? I will be releasing a new video every week on Fridays.  So if you pledge $1 per video, at the end of the month you'll have supported me with $4 of your lovely money.  

What is the money used for...drugs?  No, not drugs.  Any and all contributions go toward helping me spend more time on The Polymath.  There is a lot of effort that goes into making one of these videos:  hours of research, writing, re-writing, more research, editing the writing I've done already, re-writing (again), a little soft weeping, shooting, editing out the sobs, and then posting the video.  The money is spent on updates to software, better cameras, better microphones, tripods, food and of course coffee.  

I'm really happy you're here.  I hope this becomes a strong community and that I can continue to make good things for you to see.  

Until next time, Keep learning.  

Thank you.
