Welcome to the Patreon home for The Napzok Files and Ken Napzok.

Hosted by Ken Napzok, broadcaster, host, former producer at ScreenJunkies and Collider Video, and co-creator of the ForceCenter Podcast, The Napzok Files podcast feed is a series of podcasts.

Shows currently include:

The Napzok Files Interviews - Ken welcomes a wide variety of personalities from the worlds of comedy, writing, sports, and more for an engaging, intimate conversation among friends that highlights life personal and professional journeys.

Life Ranked - Whether it’s Ken by himself or with a guest, Life Ranked takes a topic from life and presents five reasons to support it. Some episodes you’ll learn things (How To Create Happiness) and some episodes you’ll find yourself debating along with the the show (Best SNL castmembers or Best Moments in Yacht Rock History).

The 3 Things - This show began as a free form program based around the three things on Ken’s mind that week, but has grown to get deep (The three things you need to know about Real Love) and absurd (How To Fail At Change).

Hot Sizzler Nights - It’s simple. Ken. A guest. Two all-you-can-eat salad bars at Sizzler. You can learn a lot about person through their choices at a never ending food bar.

TNF Hotline - The phone lines are open! Through a Google voice mailbox EXCLUSIVELY for Patreon supporters, the TNF Hotline is a call-in show that is built on your questions and Ken’s answers.

This Is Life - Co-Hosted by producer/ podcaster Owen Moogan, This Is Life is a snap shot of modern American life that includes conversations about big issues and little questions between friends while also stretching outside the boundaries of the recording studio to on location segments and shows in which Ken and Owen explore Los Angeles; finding life lessons and history along the way.

The Napzok Files is available on Podomatic, Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Stitcher, TuneIn, and iHeartRadio.

The Philosophy of this Patreon

1 - Growth Through Goals

Supporting me on Patreon isn’t just about what the work completed and shows to come, it is about helping The Napzok Files and related work to grow. The published goals on this Patreon will always be a balance of business and celebration. Special Q & A episodes, movie commentaries, and other goals that celebrate your involvement are mixed with specific business goals like new branding and podcast imaging, guest appearance fees, and merchandise. The business goals will always be presented with an air of transparency. Your money will be going to great, specific use.

2 - Community Through Connection

Without a doubt one of the more powerful fuels for the growth of The Napzok Files and my work is the building of a community amongst the listeners and supporters. In that spirit, this Patreon page is a place for you to find some friends among the names. Additionally, through this Patreon, a Discord Server has been established and it is exclusive to patrons. There you will not only find several different discussions channels about Napzok Files’ programming, but also channels for you to ask assistance or advice from other supporters, safely share a troubling situation or feeling and get some warm support, have fun with spoiler discussions on movies and TV, debate pro wrestling, and the Daily Discord -- where Monday through Friday I post a special conversation starter for the group to talk about. There is power and comfort in groups -- jump into this one.

3 - Gratitude Through Rewards

Your support means a lot to me and my words will often fail to show it. So enter the rewards! There are special monthly shows, weekly episodes, access to the TNF Hotline number, a Q & A, and a Twitter follow! And that’s just currently… I am always looking to improve and add rewards. Additionally, future support tiers will be introduced that will include merchandise, on-air thank you mentions, and much more.

If you feel like contributing then let's take this walk of faith together. Check out the support tier that best suits you. (Currently: $1, $2, $3, $5, $10, $15, $25, and $50) However, the growth of The Napzok Files will always begin with listeners. So if you're a listener... relatively new, been here from the start, or joined somewhere along the way... you've already done enough! 

Thank you for considering.

Goals
204 of 210 patrons
GAME. OF. THRONES.

That's right! It's time to bring some Game of Thrones programming back to The Napzok Files podcast feed. 

Upon reaching 210 supporters I will launch CASTERLY TALK here on The Napzok Files feed with the ultimate goal to move it to it's own feed. (Another goal, another time!) 

Now, why the carrot dangle? Why is this show a "goal" when other shows have just been launched? Well, I have a little more planned for this show. It won't just be me blabbing about Game of Thrones and A Song of Ice and Fire. This show will include other contributors, pre-recorded segments, and even special regular episodes with Josh Macuga. (* wink * )  So I will need some time to get it together and additional infrastructure in place. 

Also, special shout out to Lon Harris over at ScreenJunkies for that name!

This show will be public! Additional GoT related content will be available on Patreon.
