  33. Patreon Connections:
  34. Apparently Gemma Thomson had supported Laura Kate's patreon from 01.12.14 to up to 06.19.14: https://archive.is/GHxjD (I believe that support was ended to Kate's patreon when the IndieHaven patreon went live, which was announced to be launching in the Episode 51 podcast)
  35. Laura Kate started supporting Gemma Thomson's patreon on 03.01.15. https://archive.is/u9iyR

  37. Articles with Potential Conflicts of Interest:

  40.  
  41. Summary:
  42. Patreon relationships appear to have gone both ways, supporting and being supported. There also appears to be a potential distance issues which could constitute a potential conflict of interest regarding coverage and promotion of LadyCade as well as featuring of Gemma Thomson in the IndieCade podcast. I found no disclosures of these potential issues.
