Bonus audio!

per month
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!

per month

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 twice a year. One card in July and one card in December!

About HARK!

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 recording HARK for over five years, and we're not anywhere close to running out of songs to talk about. We've launched this Patreon so that the show can be self-sustaining.

HARK has 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, and more). If you're able to support us at $5/month, we will send you holiday cards from the two of us. Like, real cards, in the real mail.Starting in 2020, HARK podcast moved from weekly to bi-weekly. The Patreon is sticking around, as the costs of making the show (primarily various hosting fees) are the same. We’re hoping the freed up time (besides being good for our well-being!) will allow us to contribute more bonus audio for patrons throughout the year. We also moved the $5 holiday card reward from once annually to twice a year - one card in December, and one card in July!

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

$73.35 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!
