Sam Kellyis creating an Argentine football podcast
Select a membership level
For $2 per month, you'll get access to two of Sam's Sunday evening HOP Extra episodes each MONTH, in months where he records them (which is to say, during the club season and on big international weekends). Normally, one of these episodes will be in the first half of the month and one will be in the second half. It's our way of saying thank you to supporters who can't afford to pledge the full $5 to get every episode of HOP Extra, but who still want to give us something.
As a Friend of HOP, you'll have access to two special extra mini episodes PER WEEK (during the Argentine club season): one recorded by Sam each Sunday night during the season, with his thoughts on the biggest games from the Superliga weekend, and the other recorded with the team, right after we wrap up recording the 'proper' podcast episode each week. Sam's Sunday night episode might move to Mondays if there's a huge game on a Monday, or to Tuesday on international weekends.
Thanks in advance for your kind support. With money from our patrons, we'll be able to buy our own domain for the HOP website, pay for our drinks each week, and Sam hopes to have enough left over to finally start paying the other panelists for their time, after over seven years of everyone doing the show our of the goodness of their own hearts. As well as all this, later in 2018 when we have to start paying for our SoundCloud Pro account (we haven't had to until now ... it's a long story), funding will enable us to ensure the entire back catalogue of the podcast remains online, rather than having to have a lot of older episodes disappear off the page. In time, we hope this will lead to a better show. Maybe we'll even feel motivated to plan a few segments.
The HOP Patreon page is launching with only two reward levels. That's because we still haven't worked out the final details of the social media networking we'll use for the other level, which will include HOP Extra as well as the chance to chat with other listeners and the podcast (Sam at least; other HOPsters TBC) via a private group, probably on Facebook. We expect this second reward level to launch within a few days, but wanted to go live now so early adopters can get hold of HOP Extra for the weekend just gone.
