About

I prefer to take money from billionaires than you - apologies to the billionaires out there reading this - but I also really want to launch these podcasts, make these videos and spend time on twitter being weird. 

Not all the money will go to me, some of it will go to others working on the podcasts because people need to eat, apparently.

Red Inker
It's a show about the issues in cricket, every week there will be a different guest talking about a big topic, issue or story in cricket. We get an expert on - someone who has written about it or lived it - to take us through. The issues covered so far include Jofra Archer's treatment, South Africa's search for black batsmen, and professionalism of the women's game, It's the stories that I am interested in. The guest have included Wright Thompson, Dan Norcross, Tymal Mills, Andy Balbirnie, Alex Hartley and Shan Masood. Every time I see a great cricket story out there, I'll try and get an expert on the topic to come to chat about it.

Double Century
This is my podcast on the history of cricket. I didn't make this for cricket history buffs though, i made this for cricket fans who perhaps don't know that much about how game came to be. I am so proud of how it turned out, the quality of each episode in writing, narration, production and fact checking is really high. The first season is currently being released. I have already started work on a mini-series. But in all truth this is a project that desperately needs the support of Patreon. There is no reason why I couldn't do one major and one mini series every year, perhaps even more. But this is something that to coninue the quality of what we have made, 

Unnamed Jarrod Kimber Sports Movie project
The third podcast I'll have more details for later, but it's a general sports show that movie fans should love. More details soon.

There are other podcasts lined up as well, part of it is just waiting for the right people to be available. 

Youtube Channel

So a while back I tried to make videos with my old employer, they didn't quite work due to a variety of reasons, But my friend Arya kept bugging me about trying it again with him. I was sceptical, but when he heard of one of my podcast ideas he thought he could make that visual, and along the way we both paused that idea and moved it towards these weird animated shorts looking at different ideas within cricket.

Good areas
That has ended up with a show called good areas. The early episodes have been about how women's cricket is different to men's, why teams don't have a third slip. the different types of T20 players and why slower balls beat batsmen when they are picked. I have a huge list of these, and I haven't even got to the Neil Wagner stan videos yet. 

Video essays 
So I have just started making video essays. But I've seen in movies - and some US sports (Jon Bois) - people making these long videos on one topic. And being that I make documentaries and write longform essays, it kinda makes sense to bring that all together.  It's something I've been looking to get into for quite some time, but I never quite worked out how. Now we have a way of making them, and so they will become a staple of the Youtube channel. 

The first one was on the Most Improved Player award I made up. 

Writing
For the writing I now have a substack emailer that I am writing at, thanks to the support of those on Patreon so far, I've decided to keep the substack completely free for now. But perhaps further down the line there will be paid and free content. But please subscribe if you want more of my writing. 

Twitter
How about a twitter world cup of cricket moustaches. Oh, a cricket bat one, done. Oh, you like that, well I have more... 

So if you can spare a few dollars, pounds, rupees or rand (sorry for missing your favourite currency) and you have liked what I have done before, or what I am producing now, please help out.
