About Hawk & Cleaver



WHO ARE YOU?

Hawk & Cleaver is a digital story studio bringing you the best horror, thriller, sci-fi, and wtf stories this side of the apocalypse. This Patreon campaign is for our flagship chart-topping, award-winning, gut-ripping podcast — The Other Stories.

SAY WHAT NOW?
What.

NO. I MEAN, CAN YOU GO INTO MORE DETAIL WITH REGARDS TO THE OTHER STORIES PODCAST?
Yes I can. Cut to: 2016. Four friends joined together and decided to give this whole writing thing a stab. They kicked around some ideas of what they wanted to create until one of those crazy ideas popped out of mouth. A weekly short story podcast. They called it, The Other Stories.
They wrangled together some narrators, clumsily edited the audio, and as the stories hit the feed, the podcast quickly took on a life of its own.

Within the first few months, we had 10,000 downloads.

By the end of that year, we had grown to over 50,000.

As the audience grew, so did the team. H&C brought registered audio-wizard Karl Hughes into their tight-knit circle to sprinkle magic dust on our stories. And so, four became five.
Now, over five years later they now work regularly with 30 collaborators all across the world, have published over 100 new and established authors, have been downloaded over 8-million times, and have very recently won an award for the Best Fiction Podcast 2020 over at ThisIsHorror.Co.Uk.

And along the way, we’ve had the privilege of being supported by our amazing patron community (along with the help of a cosmic hell-bird / managing editor called Kez).

WAIT… KEZ? WHAT?
Yeah. Kez. He smokes rollups and hates adverbs.

AND WHAT ARE OTHER PEOPLE SAYING ABOUT THE PODCAST?
Glad you asked! We have almost 1000 podcast reviews with a 4.5/5 star average. Here’s a couple of choice snips:

“Shows like The Twilight Zone, Tales from the Crypt, and The Outer Limits are brought in to the 21st Century to a world where anything from YouTube to your bedroom mirror can produce monsters like vampires, zombies, and misfits.” — Cosmopolitan

“The shorter running time tightens and squeezes the tension into a compressed package that will leave you sweating and obsessively looking over your shoulder before your commute's even over.” — Thrillist

“Hands down my favorite podcast. The writing, narration and production are all done phenomenally well. If you haven’t given it a listen you’re missing out!” — iTunes Review

“Excellent writing, super talented actors, and the host is a naturally interesting and inspired presenter. The changing themes, fan participation, and the overall feel of sharing the love of the genre keep this fresh and compelling. Don’t miss this one!” — iTunes Review

AWESOME. WHERE CAN I FIND OUT MORE?
Head over to www.TheOtherStories.Net for more info on what we’re up to and how you can get involved. 
Goals
$335.82 of $500 per month
We’ll publish a monthly patreon-exclusive drabble/flash fiction episode called HAWK SQUAWKS.
