Hi there, I'm Matt. I produce smart, fun projects on the Internet. Whether it’s a podcast featuring drag queens playing Dungeons & Dragons, YouTube videos about queer milestones on TV, or revealing interviews about the entertainment that changed people’s lives, my goal is to make the world a better place by making people happy and making people think.
A podcast starring drag queens playing Dungeons & Dragons!
A podcast of revealing personal stories about how entertainment has changed the lives of queer people. Each week, a guest plucks a piece of entertainment from their past -- book, movies, music, shows, and more -- and answers the question: how did it change your life?
A video project featuring personal stories with queer gamers around the country, showing how lives change when queer culture and game culture collide.
A relaxing livestream of the literature you've always meant to read. Every Monday and Friday, I read a selection of great short stories live on camera, and then lead a fun lively book-circle chat with viewers. Join us every Monday and Friday night at 8pm PST.
I host a monthly film screening at Verne & Wells in Kirkland, with a bonus pre-show featuring strange amazing weird fascinating video clips related to the movie. Video planet is free and open to all!
About Matt Baume
I'm a writer, podcaster, and video-maker based in Seattle whose work focuses on queer culture, geeks, and all things strange and wonderful.
I'm the co-creator of the podcast & live show Queens of Adventure, as well as the interview show The Sewers of Paris, the YouTube pop culture series Culture Cruise, and the LGBTQ news shows Weekly Debrief and Marriage News Watch. My book of personal stories of people who fought for marriage equality is entitled Defining Marriage. My partner James and I created the interview project Playing With Pride, featuring personal stories about what happens when queer culture and game culture collide. My work has been recognized by the New York Times as “thoughtful and thorough … informative and funny.”
