About Pop History

Tap into the stories.

Throughout my life, I've tried doing it all. Web design, art, graphics, videos, captions. Even got paid doing some of it. But always, I've come back to one singular passion - pop culture history.

Pop culture isn't just a way some people share their work to others. It's a collective societal experience that emerges from new opportunities, fueled by the vibes of people who are passionate enough to contribute to trends and innovations alike. No matter how obscure or insignificant a product of those opportunities might be, there's a story waiting to be told of its creation.

And that's what Pop History is all about - telling valuable and extensive stories behind relics of pop culture that have been left untold or unexplored. Along the way, I'll be taking you on journeys of discovery and insight that will help us unlock more stories together.

- Jacob, author-in-chief

Why Patreon?

Some of the articles I'm publishing on Pop History have been produced through a grant from the Video Game History Foundation, but the site as a whole will explore a much greater array of media, beyond the scope of one community.

Because of the expenses of hosting and research, I've chosen to work on this venture with help from you - my readers.

What's being offered?

I'll be posting exclusive interview transcripts and early previews of my articles here on Patreon. If you're a fellow pop culture enthusiast, you'll be able to give feedback and earn a credit on any articles published during your stay.

If you're new to the topics being covered here, you're encouraged to get involved by commenting on the links through Patreon, or stay tuned for access to our Discord server.
$0 of $100 per month
I'll be able to do one video a month, plus stream games and artifacts.
