"It's a festival of deconstruction, married with a real sense of heart and earned emotion, and a comic sensibility that falls somewhere between Mystery Science Theater 3000 and a Paul Lynde holiday special from 1978… This show is weird, and it's smart, and it knows what it's doing.” David Rheinstrom, Radio Drama Revival

Hi folks! It's Mike McQuilkin and Rich Wentworth, creators of the award-winning science fiction audio comedy/adventure podcast Hadron Gospel Hour.

We've been telling weird stories with Hadron Gospel Hour for over two years now, and we absolutely love doing it. It's been a passion project for us -- written in stolen moments, recorded, edited and mixed in our home studios.

Since we started this project, we've created over 14 hours of scripted audio comedy, amassed over 100k downloads, attracted the most amazing group of listeners, won The Geekie Award for Best Podcast, and won two Parsec Awards. Now, we've decided to take the leap into converting this project into a full-time undertaking.

We're inviting you to come along with us and help us bring this show to the next level. If you've enjoyed our show in the past, if we've ever made you laugh, or sigh... if we've given you any feels at all, and if you're excited about where the gang in the Hadron Bunker are headed next, we think you'll want to be there for this new chapter.

As our listeners know, we've been very clear from day one that Hadron Gospel Hour will always be free. We will never charge for this show. We like it that way. However, we'd love to be able to do thinks like: cover our operating costs, upgrade gear, and pay our talented cast.

And that's where you come in.

Many of you tell us you'd love to kick in a few dollars to support our project. Patreon makes it super easy to do exactly that -- maybe even fun.

Whether you want to say "thank you" for our work on Hadron Gospel Hour, or let us know that you appreciate our hard work -- or if you just want to help us keep making the show -- being our patron here on Patreon is a great way to do it.

Your pledge of as little as $1 per episode will also help us create more -- and will help us make this a sustainable business so that the episodes just keep coming. Forever.

What are we trying to accomplish here? Well, we want to do stuff like this:

  • Make Season 3 of Hadron Gospel Hour -- and release episodes with greater frequency
  • Spinoffs! From The Investikids to The New Adventures of Commander Funk, there are whole new corners of the multiverse waiting to be explored!
  • Have more "big name" guest stars on the show
  • An HGH Official Soundtrack Album
  • An HGH comic book
  • A Live-action video HGH Webseries
  • A Hadron Gospel Hour LIVE TOUR -- we want to bring our weirdness to your town!

So, what's in it for you the listener? Well, in addition to the warm and fuzzy feeling of supporting Hadron Gospel Hour -- and the knowledge that you're helping us keep making stuff for your ears and eyes to gobble up -- we've got some bonus "thank you" goodies for our patrons. Check out our patron rewards for more info on the cool exclusives we're sharing with you!

And listen: if you've read this far, but you just can't pledge, that's totally cool. We still love you! We'd ask you to consider helping us in other ways: like sharing our show with a friend... tweeting Wil Wheaton... writing a blog post about us... whatever you can think of to spread the word about our show. Every little bit helps!

As always, thank you for listening to Hadron Gospel Hour!

-Mike and Rich

Goals
$246 of $450 per Episode

Listeners are always giving us glowing feedback about the music we create for Hadron Gospel Hour, and we'd love to put it all together for you in a downloadable album! If we hit our $450 per episode goal we'll be able to record, mix and professionally master the official Hadron Gospel Hour soundtrack album. You'll be able to hear crystal clear, full versions of the tunes we've created for the show, like:

  • "Mandatory" by Veterans of the Cola Wars
  • "Man In The Wall" by The Lower Half
  • "Mr. Gormenghast's Spooky Tune" by Rich Wentworth
  • "Theme From Hadron Gospel Hour" by Rich Wentworth and Michael McQuilkin
  • "You Can Do It!" by Freeze-Frame Hi-Five and The Motivation Proclamation
  • "War In Whoville" by DolphinWolf
...and more, including not-yet-aired incidental music and other goodies!

Patrons will be able to get this full-length virtual slab of HGH grooviness for free, but it'll also be available for purchase on iTunes, Bandcamp, etc. if you're not a Patron.

And, if we hit $750 per episode, we'll be able to make a 12" Vinyl LP version!
