Patreon update #1: The Last Jedi & more


Every Saturday from now on, I will offer an update of my Patreon activities. The update will cover the weekly podcast episode, Patreon blog posts, and any other news and information. The content will be accessible to anyone who becomes a patron, while these descriptions will keep regular readers abreast of my activity over there, in case they are thinking about joining, or if they are just curious to know what's going on.

This week, for the only time in the foreseeable future, I'm releasing the intro to the podcast as an illustrated clip on YouTube; it also doubles as an explainer for the format and the Patreon in general. You can hear/view it here:



This week I kicked off my new account with the first episode of my new podcast, and a few blog posts (one to go with the podcast, another a welcome, and another a preview). The Film in Focus this week is The Last Jedi; with the surprising number of second-tier patrons who joined up right out of the gate (meaning they can select future films for me to discuss) it looks like this may be the last one I pick myself, and possibly the last time I just focus on one film in an episode.



Here is the line-up for the podcast episode (the timestamps can be found in the blog post):
