Announcing Our Partnership With TeePublic

So a bit of behind-the-scenes real talk: for the past 5 years we’ve been paying $10 a month to host the podcast. The site you’re reading this on costs around $30 a year. When you add it all up, it’s not a ton of money, but it is money out of our pockets, because we receive no ad revenue or anything. And we’ll happily keep paying it, because we love this stuff! It’s fun, and we’ve met so many rad people because of NFC.

That said, when someone reached out a couple of weeks ago with an opportunity to maybe lose less money, we were certainly open to the idea. In the initial email from TeePublic, I got a good vibe. They showed an understanding of who we were and what we do here- this was not one of the vague “increase profit by expanding your brand!” emails we get from time to time. After a few emails and a phone conversation, I was sold. I told Lindsey and John what the deal was, and we decided to go for it.

So here’s the deal: we now have a store on TeePublic. In this store, there are shirts we have chosen, relevant to NFC. If anyone buys one of these shirts through our store, we get a small commission. Eventually, we will be able to add our own NFC merch to the store, and get an even larger commission! The plan at the moment is to rotate what’s in the store roughly every month, based on what we’re talking about on the podcast and/or in our videos.

tl;dr: if you want to support what we do, buy a shirt from our TeePublic store!

(If you use any link on this page, we get a commission)

We’re being very intentional about the shirts we select; this is all stuff from cool artists that we totally want to wear ourselves! And yeah, *JT voice* it’s gonna be themed.

So without any further ado, please check out our first selection of shirts, based on the theme of “Nintendo E3 2017 Wishes.” It’s said that if you buy one of these shirts, your E3 wish will come true. Now, I’m not sure if I believe all that, but I’m certain it wouldn’t hurt to try…

Check out our TeePublic store here, or continue reading below to see why we chose the shirts that we did!

I am now in possession of a totally sweet Famicom collection

Thanks to my good friend (and former roommate in Japan) Kevin, I now have a totally rad collection of boxed Famicom games. I’m not super interested in just sticking ’em on a shelf and letting them sit though. I’ll definitely be unboxing all of them, taking pictures and maybe video. If you have any questions about any of these, feel free to ask and I’ll do my best to answer!

Thanks again, Kevin!
