Welcome to the new ReaderGrev

Hi there! Welcome to the new and almost-identical ReaderGrev website.
I made the move to readergrev.com on the occasion of launching a Patreon alongside my colleague Jacob Wolf — another journalist whose work I admire.
We started our Patreon as an experiment. Both of us have done video game and esports journalism separately in the past. Earlier this year, that got us thinking: What if we gathered our output under one umbrella? Could we build something that could sustain and support our work — and maybe, down the line, the work of other journalists and creators we admire too?
Here’s what I told Alex Lee at Digiday in an interview earlier this month about what Jacob and I were hoping to do:
I also said some stuff about New York Magazine and The Drift party which will scan for maybe… 2-5 people. But it makes me giddy thinking about the new ground we can cover together.
By pooling our resources and marshaling the support of our backers — our wonderful readers, watchers and listeners! — we hope to produce more of the journalism that we’d like to see in this space: longform investigations, searing criticism and in-depth interviews.
Jacob and I will have more to share about this leg of our journey in the coming days and weeks. Thanks for being in our corner.
