The Bridge is a youtube channel that creates monthly video essays that offer opposing viewpoints on mainstream narratives about Asia as well as bringing awareness to aspects of Asian culture, politics, and history.


My name is Christina Goodwin (iChristyg), and I graduated from Georgia State University with a Bachelors in Asian Studies. Since graduating, my career has shifted into digital marketing consultancy. As I expand my skills in digital marketing, I still have a keen interest in Asia. I created The Bridge not only for educational purposes but also to quench this insatiable desire to learn more and more about Asia. Even though I am in digital marketing, I hope that I can eventually shift my career focus back into what I love.


Patreon is the most stable as well as a liberating form of income. You may or may not know that Google Adsense has a strict regulation on which channels can or can not receive payment. As I delve further into not so "advertiser-friendly" topics such as drugs, injustice, violence, controversies, and sensitive events, there will be a moment where advertisers will not want to advertise on my videos. This policy can be inhibiting, and it leaves content creators feeling that they need to water-down more serious topics.

As a content creator, I refuse to water down any of my videos because it shelters us from reality. Life is gruesome and unjust, and nothing will get solve if we spend time trying to hide the issue or the truth. To still get compensated for work and tell raw, honest stories, Patreon is a necessary countermeasure to these restrictive policies.


Since I am working alone and I want these videos to be as thorough as possible, I will be aiming to post one video on the last day of each month. As of now, there is a projection of 6 videos for the remainder year 2019. 

I know once a month videos might be unbearable for some to wait on. That is why I have included Patreon-exclusive content for patrons to enjoy in between uploads. The first tier includes:

  • Weekly posts of my WIP, books I am reading, and my workflow.
  • Polls where you decide the next topic that I will discuss for the month after the upcoming month.
  • Exclusive access to monthly live streams where we will play trivia games as well as discuss our online book club. Trivia and book club streams will alternate between months.
