This Week In Atrocity

is creating a podcast about Hallmark movies, and sometimes one about news

  • A feeling of beneficent satisfaction, picture and text posts, errata, announcements

Christmas is just ten cents a day!

  • All deleted-footage audio
  • All previous rewards.
Lord of Atrocity
per month
Thirty cents per day! Thanks very much. This really helps us devote more time to this and come up with gags and ideas that take more time and investment up-front.
  • A thank-you box of oddball swag, collected at only the finest military surplus paranoia outlets and religious institutions investigated by the state
  • Google Hangouts (up to 30 minutes) with me—you pick the topic so long as it's not rude
  • Plus all previous rewards




Welcome to the Patreon bonus page for Dave and Jeb Aren't Mean (Your #1 Source for Highlights and Analysis of the Films of the Hallmark Network), which itself began as a Patreon bonus podcast for the current events and "debunking the fringe" podcast This Week in Atrocity. (More on that below.)

For $3 per month, or 10 cents per day, or less than "a latte," you get over 50 hours and counting of bonus material, including:

  • Dave and Jeb's podcast Journal of the Plague Year.
  • Garbage Time Mysteries—Jeb and Dave's off-topic bonuses, which seem like they're about something else but which are probably really just about getting older—sometimes with guests like Nick Bond and Luke O'Neil.
  • 19 full bonus episodes of Dave and Jeb Aren't Mean, including the first 16
  • 5 hours of reviews of the first season of The Last Ship, including 2 with investigative journalist, essayist and US Navy veteran Adam Weinstein
  • a series recap of Game of Thrones with Sara Kate Wilkinson and TV's Andy Levy
  • a review of the WCW-produced Hulk Hogan special forces vehicle Shadow Warriors: Assault on Devil's Island with TV's Andy Levy
  • a review of the masturbation-aiding slobs vs. snobs epic Ski School
  • a review where we go ass sliding with the Lori Loughlin BMX movie Rad
  • deleted scenes anthologies
You can also talk with us here, although you can probably also talk to us elsewhere.

This Week in Atrocity began as a show about post-election politics and the fringe, with a dedicated co-host, and then real life claimed the co-host, and the fringe became the mainstream and left the show without a brief. Later, it featured rotating guests who went on to other projects. Current events, media and sports episodes with David Roth morphed into Dave and Jeb Aren't Mean. Law and politics episodes with Charles Star turned into Charles's very successful Mic Dicta podcast. And political polling and district-by-district podcasts with Robert Wheel fell by the wayside as Bobby took a job focusing on just that. If you don't see the annual Thanksgiving podcast with Will Leitch here, it's probably on Will's podcast, whatever it was on that given year.
