Hey look! We made a new thing! Welcome to WEIRD HEAT - a brand new show about life, creativity and everything else, from the minds of Brian Altano and Max Scoville (The Comedy Button, IGN, Up at Noon, Podcast Beyond.)
WEIRD HEAT is a passion project dedicated to creating and regularly releasing new audio and video podcasts, new artwork, new music and new merchandise.

is a show! You're probably think "Oh damnit, another podcast?" But we promise you: this one is different. Every episode of the show will tackle a single theme. No topical news. No reactions to a pop culture thing that just launched. Just a laid back, honest, humorous, and occasionally heartbreaking conversation between two friends tackling one topic. Topics like OPTIMISM, GROWING UP, CRYING, PRIDE and NOSTALGIA.  

You can listen to WEIRD HEAT on your favorite podcast app or watch it on YouTube!

Every new episode of the show will include a brand new song produced by Brian, inspired by that episode's theme. You can listen to them all wherever you stream your music. Each episode will also inspire new artwork or photography, plus new t-shirt designs from Max and Brian!

Here's our first episode, dedicated to the theme of "Optimism."

We’d be really happy if you supported our new project here on Patreon! We don’t want to paywall our shows (which will be readily available on YouTube and podcast apps for free) so our Patreon will basically serve as a place for our Patrons to support us and connect with us and get exclusive posts, art, music and behind the scenes stuff. If you like what we’re doing and you want to help us, pitch in some money so we can keep making it forever. It only takes a few seconds to sign up with Patreon and become a Weird Heat Patron! 

If you want something a little more physically rewarding, feel free to buy some merchandise from our store. We’re just happy to have you in our corner either way.

So to recap, each month you’ll get:

Hosted by podcast veterans Brian Altano and Max Scoville and available on your favorite podcast service and YouTube, each show will be focused on a deep dive conversation about a single topic in serious, heartfelt and comedic ways - usually a mixture of all three. We’ll pick the themes ourselves or take suggestions from you!

Brian Altano (producer behind MisanthropeROBOTOBOTS, and the upcoming studio album Continues) will release a new original instrumental song that is inspired by each episode’s theme. You’ll hear it at the end of each episode and be able to stream or download it on your favorite music streaming sites or own it through iTunes or Amazon the day the episode goes live.

Brian is also going to use Patreon to put out even more of his unreleased music that has never seen the light of day before. Stuff like b-sides, rare remixes, and other stuff that can now live in your ears forever instead of hiding on his computer.

Max Scoville and Brian Altano will regularly create and post new artwork. Drawings, paintings, digital compositions, sculpture, experimental video, or whatever else we’re inspired to work with.

The core idea of this project is to give us a place to put the things we make. We'll use our Patreon to share exclusive sketches, photos, and behind the scenes/work in progress stuff. 

We love wearing and designing t-shirts and you probably don’t love digging through tons of t-shirt sites to find something that you want to buy, so let’s connect our worlds so we can make some awesome stuff for you to wear.
