How does it work?
You can subscribe on a monthly or yearly basis. Your subscription gives you access to exclusive articles and videos via this website. You can sign up for as little as £2 and you can cancel your subscription at any time. So yes, for £2 you can get access to all the member-only content and you can then cancel your subscription if it’s not for you. You also get full access to the exclusive member-only forum – a place to learn from other members and discuss ideas without trolls, spam or adverts. This whole site is privacy focused – unlike most websites we don’t track your every move.
Is this instead of Patreon?
In short, yes! Patreon was great while the channel was small but they’re really just a middle-man. Patreon don’t even host the videos! As the channel grows it makes more sense to host this content myself. It gives me much more long-term flexibility. If you prefer to use Patreon that’s absolutely fine but you’ll be missing out! Over time I’ll be developing this platform more and more. Give it a try and see what you think!
I’m a control freak.
What do I get?
- Exclusive member-only articles & videos

You also get my eternal thanks for supporting the channel directly. You can browse through the content here. You’ll not get access to the full articles until you cough up!
Why aren’t these videos on YouTube?
YouTube is a strange beast. Some videos work well and some don’t. Unfortunately the content on this site is just too niche for YouTube. This isn’t just a money thing – putting very niche videos on YouTube can actually damage my channel and cause it to be down-ranked. This is just a better home for such content.
Most websites use tracking technologies. These systems monitor your movements between different sites to bombard you with targeted advertising. It’s not great and the implications on personal privacy through sites such as Facebook are huge. None of that here – if you don’t believe me look at what Firefox thinks of this site:
Almost all of the videos on this site are hosted separately from YouTube to keep tracking from those lovely global conglomerates to an absolute minimum!
