    Episode 8.3- The Retreat

    Episode 8.3- The Retreat

    Perhaps we should check in on the Vice Presidents- those dear Middle Managers of the HartLife Corporation.  Surely they have some clue as to what happened to everyone here.
    We're excited to share a few details for our upcoming Doctor Herbert West miniseries, funded by out generous Patreon backers.  This series will be written by four guest writers from other amazing podcasts, and will be released first on our Patreon feed, then here on the podcast.  We're thrilled to tease the first piece- a dynamic tale of Albuquerque from Sarah Shachat of Wolf 359. We're also excited to announce a new Patreon goal- when we reach $650, we will release scripts for "Adventures in Science," Andrew Snidge's audio drama from episode 2  to all of our patrons!  You can learn more and become a patron at patreon.com/hartlifenfp! You can also help spread the word by rating and reviewing on iTunes or whatever podcasting service you are listening to us on!

    Episode 8.5- Pushing into Revolution

    I detest these Liminals.  The collaborations between Rogue Scientists and Rebel Policies will never bear the sweet fruit of Truth that the works of the HartLife Corporation do!
    ==================
    HartLife NFP is at a pivotal point in its life. With Season Eight, we are bringing Our Fair City to a close, and ramping up work on our next show. We've got a Dr. West miniseries in the works. We've never been busier.
    That work is possible in large part to the support we get from listeners and fans on Patreon. Some of them give $1 a month. Some of them have donated a year’s worth of algae bars. And to thank those amazing folks we like to share special insider treats.
    If you haven’t already become a Patreon supporter we’ve got an extra push. When we reach $650, we will release three scripts from Andrew Snidge’s audio drama “Adventures in Science!” (as transcribed by Jim McDoniel) on our Patreon feed for all our backers!
    Even better: these will be released under a Creative Commons Attribution/Non-commercial License. Want to record your own Adventures in Science?  Make a comic?  Use it in some other medium?  Go ahead---Andrew would be proud of you!
    But first you have to be a Patron. So head over to Patreon.com/hartlifenfp to help us make this happen. And then you get to read Adventures in Science.
