Does anybody know how this works?
Is it a way for beekeepers to charge for mentoring? I see Norfolk Honey has pay as you go videos.

Damn! A lot more than I ever thought I'd have
Should all be free if all clubs had a thriving club of capable beekeepers.

Thanks Peter. My daughter is a performer and teacher. I’m familiar with the way it works in the arts, especially in this day and age when artists are not able to perform in the normal manner but I didn’t realise that beekeepers were using it as a fee platform. I was simply curious. I have enjoyed some of these videos. It would be a pity if they disappeared.

In 2017 when I started beekeeping I joined Stewart Spinks Beekeeping with Stewart Spinks is creating Beekeeping Videos and Podcasts & More | Patreon, attended a few of his talks at local BKA evenings. 10$ a month gives full excess to all video and podcasts. you can private message if any emergency questions etc. lots of interesting information, I recommend Stewart to any beekeepers.
Thanks for that Steve
Stewart is one of the best YouTube beekeepers. There's lots of really useful stuff there

I would definitely recommend Stuart Spinks for his videos and podcasts. if you consider the time and expense put in to producing these videos I think it is perfectly reasonable to seek some payment. If you don’t think they are good value for money, don’t subscribe.

I suppose if you are making a business of it then that makes sense. They used to be made for altruistic reasons or for self advertising.
