Sconnie Geek Nation

Geekazine New Patreon Page: Be a Part of the Sconnie Geek Nation!

Geekazine has decided to venture into the crowdfunding game by joining Patreon. As we’re approaching 10 years of podcasting and content creation, I have found the last couple years have not been as lucrative as in past. Cancelling a few events I attend for fresh content, I am now in a precarious situation as to the direction of the website and other properties. By joining Patreon, I am asking you – the content viewer – to help out with covering funds for my videos and travel. I have been able to do this for the last 9 years, heading to CES, SXSW, NAB, and more.
