Hi, I'm Tom.
On the internet I am sometimes called Mr. Tom, to differentiate me from other people whose names are also Tom.
My username in many places is NowWeAreAllTom.
In case you're wondering "what's this guy's deal," here is a bulleted list explaining what my deal is:
- Retired(?) vlogger
- Higher Education professional in Advancement Services
- Good at dance parties
- Novice web developer
- Sometimes a writer of some sort
Social Distance Warriors
In 2020, the entire world went off the rails as a result of a global pandemic and a really weird election. Maybe by the time you are reading this, things are normal again? Gosh, I hope so. For the time being, my friend Rachel and I are talking about living through the pandemic over on our new podcast, Social Distance Warriors. You can find out more here:
My biggest project you should know about is Doctor Who: The Moment, a podcast about Doctor Who. Each week I talk to a different guest about a moment in Doctor Who that they feel strongly about. You can find out more by clicking below:
I'm really proud of the show. As of this writing, I am working on Season Three, which is shaping up nicely and I should have more info to share by the end of December 2020.
I've even been told by some people who have never watched Doctor Who that they've listened to the show and enjoyed it! If you're interested in hearing the show, I recommend you head over to the episodes page and browse around to find an episode that covers a Doctor Who story you're familiar with. Or if you don't know where to start, you might try this episode, which I've been told is a standout, or this episode, where I got to be the guest while my friend Joy Pidemont sat in as host.
If you've read this far and you still want to know more about me and what I get up to, then it's very important that you sign up for my newsletter. I will not bother you with constant email. In fact, people tend to complain about how infrequent the newsletter is. That's how un-bothersome it is. People want me to do more of it.
Another recent project you might want to know about is the video essay I made about moral philosophy in Doctor Who. It's adapted from a talk I gave at the Gallifrey One convention in February of 2019. I'm really proud of this and I hope you'll watch it!
Please let me know if you watched this and liked it! I am considering making more in the future, but I want to know if there are actually people who are interested in content like this.
The Other Stuff
Here's some of the other stuff I've done that I would like you to know about:
- Now-defunct YouTube channels like Videobloggery, NowWeAreAllTom, and OctaviusPepperOfficial. Some of this stuff is very old and I am embarassed by it but I'm also quite proud of some of it.
- A semi-active gaming channel called NowWeAreAllGames, on which I occasionally stream things
- A defunct podcast about Harry Potter called The Chapter Titles Were So Good
- A defunct podcast about Doctor Who called The Cloister Room
- A recipe for wassail, a warm boozy winter drink
Keep in Touch!
To keep up with my latest stuff, you can sign up for that newsletter I already mentioned. If you prefer to hear from me in a way that is more frequent and annoying and a little bit perplexing, follow me on twitter (warning: high nonsense content).
If you need to tell me something, or ask me something, you can send an email to tom [at] nowwearealltom [dot] com.
