MEM’s Media Hatchery
Our Podcast Hatchery launched on Patreon in March of 2020, and over the course of that year in quarantine, created several new pilot episodes with podcast-curious artists based here in Austin, TX. Since then, the program has expanded platforms to YouTube, Twitch, and Buy Me a Coffee, where paid subscribers get early access to our content, beta access to our games & apps, and access to our eventual discord! Check out the channels below, and the blurbs below those to count up all of our hatchlings before they fly! And let us know if anything catches your eye / ear that you’d like to see / hear more of it! We love feedback!!
We’re on the path to sustainability / monetization for our content on all of these platforms, but we could sure still use some likes, follows, and subscriptions if you’ve got the time / resources.
For now, we can really only focus on one of these shows at a time whilst managing our client-work. They are all labours of love. But if we can get at least $500 a month coming in through these platforms or some SPONSORSHIPS, we can start to pay additional engineers, hosts, performers, and musicians to help us create more episodes of these shows simultaneously! That’s the ultimate dream!! To be able to help as MANY people tell their stories as possible, and start healing the world through storytelling.
“Why gender a robot? What purpose does it serve? Does it help us form attachments? And what does that say about how we view and perform gender in our everyday human lives?” These are all questions raised in this podcast series by long-time collaborator and noted cyborg clown, Julie Moore. And we’re actively addressing them one-by-one, though this podcast could use your help!
