Episode 303 – Interview With Tyler Palmer Of Patreon

Join the Robots as they talk with Tyler Palmer, Vice President of Operations at Patreon. They discuss the unique method of fostering patronage the company offers in a wide ranging talk that offers some insight in how it might benefit authors.

As the show intro says, there was a technical issue that caused Terry’s voice to not be recorded. He apologizes for that. As Scott hosted the show and it would be a major scheduling issue to redo the interview, Paul edited out the silences and made things as comprehensible as possible. Again, our apologies.
