Welcome to The Hard Times podcast network Patreon page! We are expanding from just headlines and articles into the podcast format. Our podcasts -- from both The Hard Times and Hard Drive teams -- will allow listeners to get to know the people behind all their favorite headlines, and so much more.

Our company is a DIY organization that has never taken outside investment and is still owned entirely by the punks, comics, and gamers who work on the site. All Patreon funds go directly toward supporting our podcast teams, writers, and editors.

If you can support our adventure into the podcasting world we'll hook you up with ad-free podcasts, put your name/face inside our stories, and communicate with you about behind the scenes stuff in a weekly newsletter from our team. We'll even follow you on Instagram and agree to go along with whatever lie you want to tell to explain why we do. Maybe we're old friends from way back. Maybe you ghost write all the articles. Maybe you actually created the whole site but were driven out due to bullshit office politics. Whatever you say, we'll agree.

Thanks Daddy.

The new Pokémon game takes place in Pokémon-England. We have a lot of ideas for what should, nay MUST, be in the game, or else we're not buying it. Once we get to 140 Patrons, we will release our list: I Refuse to Play Pokémon Sword or Shield Unless They Include These 1,200 British Themed Pokemon.
