About Magellan and Allen

Hi there! We are Allen and Magellan, and we co-host Chatz: A Television Podcast. Since 2015, we've been discussing TV shows with a critical and (often) comedic eye, two episodes per week. We're currently watching The Leftovers; we have previously watched:

  • Farscape (ScapeChatz)
  • Freaks and Geeks (FreaksChatz)
  • Avatar: The Last Airbender (ChatzBender)
  • The Newsroom (The ChatzRoom)
  • Pushing Daisies (DaisyChatz)
  • Babylon 5 | Crusade (Chatzylon 5)
  • The Prisoner (PrisonerChatz)
  • Pride & Prejudice (Chatz & Prejudice)
  • Roots | Roots: The Next Generations | Roots (2016) (RootsChatz)
  • John Adams (ChatzAdams)
  • Better Off Ted (Better Off Chatz)
  • Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip (Studio 60 on the SunsetChatz)
  • Vanity Fair (VanityChatz)
  • Angels in America (Angels in Chatzmerica)
  • The Stand (The StandChatz)
  • Twin Peaks (PeaksChatz)
  • On The Air (Chatz The Air)
  • Drive (DriveChatz)
  • New Amsterdam (2008) (New Chatzerdam)
  • The Leftovers (The Chatzovers)
As you probably know, podcasting costs money. Between hosting fees, software subscriptions, streaming services, and our own time, we invest more in this show than we get back. We're two long-time best friends with a lot of passion for television and nuanced discussion, and we think that's worth supporting.

We've created this Patreon both to support the free show we already make and to try some new things. We want to produce content exclusive to this Patreon - if you back us at $3 or more, you get access to all of it! Check out the rewards page for what you can get for backing us at different levels, and please consider supporting Chatz. Thanks!

Hey everyone, this is Magellan. Allen doesn't know that I'm writing this stretch goal, but I have to come clean. That dude does all the editing on the main feed. It's awesome. For me. And, I would really love it if he could get paid around or slightly above Massachusetts minimum wage to do it. At this goal amount, Allen's editing work would be totally paid for, and also you'd be throwing some extra cash my way to support my Adobe subscription, so that I can use that fancy software for all sorts of creative endeavors, including this show! As a thank you, we'll release a brand new show here on the Patreon: ChatzLightz! It will go against all of our lofty anti-binging ideals, as we'll watch an entire show or season of a show and run down its highlights. Is this the tier at which we completely sell out everything that Chatz stands for? Yes. Yes it is.
