In September, Shirt opened invitations for a one hour phone call with him priced at $50 usd. The phone call would happen monthly should a buyer choose to continue the $50 payment, or they could choose to do it one time only. Purchases were facilitated through the company Patreon, a membership platform that provides tools for creators to run a subscription content service. For 2-3 months, Shirt spoke over the phone to some 20 people in nine countries. The phone calls were private and not recorded.
