About The Exclusive Podcasts Unlocked at the $5 Level:
So, I Was Thinking is a biweekly podcast hosted by Kate and Matt of But Why Tho? The Podcast. Here, the two discuss topics that just got them thinking for 30 minutes. Episode one covered your life on the internet and episode two tackled the problems with movie rating sites. With topics that range from science, pop culture, and everything in between, this podcast is sure to get you thinking too.
Bourbon & Burdens is a monthly podcast where the But Why Tho? Community staff drink and share – complain – about the burdens in lives. Can range from first world problems and rants to whatever we are comfortable talking about and sharing. We also listen to fan burdens and give – unqualified – advice to them. At the $10 level you can submit your own burden for the crew to give you advice.
Comic Blast is a 15-minute mini-podcast posted in the middle of each month hosted by our editor Lizzy. Here, each month, Lizzy and a special guest will review current comics in stores and coming soon. What’s the first comic of conversation? The 100 Batman titles currently out.
In addition to existing tier levels, “The Founders Pack” special offer will also entitle patrons at $5 and above who signed up between June 5th and July 5th will receive a bonus for their pledges: a pack of exclusive stickers styled from the But Why Tho? A Geek Community’s Discord emotes.
Over two years our community has grown and has covered conventions throughout the United States. At But Why Tho? A Geek Community, we put our contributors first. This Patreon is to help raise money to maintain our website, get emails for our entire staff, and finally be able to pay our writers and hopefully fund some conventions down the road.
“It is our mission to be a website and network that is inclusive and representative of the multitude of experiences in pop culture. Our community started with our namesake podcast. Our passion for discussion and pop culture branched into a community of podcasts and contributors. ” says founder, editor-in-chief, and podcast host for But Why Tho Podcast, Kate Sánchez.
