Hello all you Herald Angels and welcome to the HARK Patreon page! HARK is a year-round holiday music podcast in which your hosts, RJ Edwards and Ian Holliday, listen to every Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, New Year's, winter, holiday, etc. song, review them, and rank them from best to worst in an ever-growing list.

In some episodes we dissect the worst of the worst Yule-themed audio garbage for your entertainment, and in some episodes we get teary-eyed about music that touches us, transports us, and inspires us to be our best selves. Sometimes that's the same episode. We've been doing it every week for nearly three years, and we're not anywhere close to running out of songs to talk about. We've launched this Patreon so that we might be able to make the show self-sustaining.

Right now, we create the show every week at a loss. We love doing it, but that's the financial reality. We've never had ads or sponsors. We know that talking about holiday music year-round is always going to be a niche, and Patreon made sense as the best way to fund a show like ours.

We're incredibly grateful for the folks who have embraced our cheerful little niche and supported the show in a variety of ways over the years. When you support HARK on Patreon for just $1/month, we'll say a personal thank you in an episode. If you donate just $2/month, you'll get access to bonus audio content - outtakes from the show, and exclusive mini-episodes on holiday-related topics (food, movies, books, and more). If you're able to support us at $5/month, we will send you a holiday card from the two of us every December. Like, a real one, in the real mail.

Thank you for listening, thank you for your support, and as always... happy holidays!

Thank you for supporting our show! We'll thank you by name with a shout-out at the end of one of our episodes.
Bonus audio!
$2 or more per month 8 patrons
We'll thank you on the show AND you get access to bonus audio content. This might include conversation that was cut from an episode, content about non-song holiday stuff (movies, TV, books, recipes, travel, etc) that we want to talk about, or reviews of holiday songs that don't qualify for the list (i.e. instrumentals).
A holiday card from us!
$5 or more per month 8 patrons
In addition to a shout-out and the bonus audio, you will get an actual-factual holiday card from Ian and RJ in the mail. In 2018 the cards will be sent out on December 10th, so sign up before then!
Goals
$57 of $100 per month
Bonus audio will be on a regular schedule! As it is, we will likely have a library of bonus audio recorded around the holidays and will post it irregularly throughout the year. If we hit $100/month, we'll post new bonus audio every month!
