I’m a big fan of Patreon. When I think of what the future holds for people like me who create content for the internet Patreon is my biggest source of excitement. The problem is many people know almost nothing about it. What is it? How does it work? Why become a creator? Why back one? Why is this so great? What’s the difference between it and Kickstarter? What are the drawbacks?
To answer some of these questions and help spread the word about the platform myself and two of my backers, Gilliom Werner Claessens and Michael Olliver, recorded this in-depth conversation.
It’s like a Podcast, but who knows if we’ll ever do another?
I’d love to hear your thoughts about Patreon in the comments.
