We're back with the fourth and final episode of Tales From Albuquerque!

Early on in the process of setting up our Patreon, we had the wild idea of putting together a miniseries that told the story of Doctor Herbert West's time in the distant city of Albuquerque.  We would give this corner of the world of Our Fair City to a group of the best writers and designers the Audio Drama community has to offer, and see what bizarre tales they would create. Thanks to your support through Patreon, it is now a reality!

This miniseries, told Rashomon style around a campfire by some of your favorite (or most reviled) characters. We hope you enjoy it, and thank you to all our listeners and especially our supporters on Patreon for making it possible.

A tape just marked “Chamberlain,” with several unpleasant words scratched out.  Hmmm.

==================

We’ll be going on our mid-season break over the month of January, but we’ll still have bi-weekly releases- coming up next, blooper reels from the first half of Season Eight.

 

We’d also like to give a shout out to one of our Manager level Patreon backers- James Battle.  James- in recognition of your contributions to the HartLife Corporation, please be advised that all nutriment dolled out to you over the next fiscal will be Blueberry, which the actuaries have determined will be your favorite.  Enjoy, Loyal Policy- you’ve earned it.

If you want to join James and get your favorite flavor of nutriment, along with Our Fair City Ringtones, special bonus content, and more, become a backer for as little as $1 a month at www.patreon.com/hartlifenfp.
