Each month I post three videos that are made exclusively for my Patreon supporters. The video titles and the date of the recordings are listed below. If you register on my Patreon page, you will have access to all the Patreon-exclusive videos. This would be a way of supporting my YouTube project and my life as an independent scholar. At higher tiers, you will also be invited to participate in my online discussion groups, if you’re interested in doing so.
