This podcast and Old Game With Grandpa Heath are things I love to produce, very much. Trouble is, it's tough to justify when it can't pay the bills. You'll always be able to view my videos and listen to these podcasts on GameRevolution.com, but in the very near future (I'm still setting things up), I'll be launching a Patreon to help make sure my creative works can come more often. I would really appreciate the help and support of any fan, however much or however little.
And hey, unlike Kickstarter, you've already gotten a pretty good taste of what you're getting into, as you've seen me posting stuff on here for several years now, and on other websites, it stretches back even earlier. But enough about that for now. More will come when I actually fill out all the stuff and announce the doohickey.
Thanks for listening to the podcast!
