The Pilot's Club

The Whatnauts Pilot’s Club is a podcast all about the pilot episodes of television shows and the many reasons why they may or may not be worth a watch. Every month we pick a different pilot episode to watch and then discuss it here on our show.

We release these episodes first and foremost to our Patreon supporters on our $3 tier and above. Then, two years later we release these episodes to a wider audience on a public feed. So if you wanna catch up on two years worth of episodes, our Patreon is the place to do that.
