Our Fair City

We’re happy to share our 2017 Halloween Special, with special guest sound design by Eli McIlveen!  Go check out his show Alba Salix, Royal Physician– we think you’ll really enjoy it.

You can support HartLife NFP’s work by going to Patreon.com/hartlifenfp and pledging to support the show monthly.  You’ll get access to monthly playlists, special scripts, and more. We’re also excited to share the names of more of the writers for the Patron-funded Herbert West Miniseries- the second story will be a tale of Albuquerque from Jeff Van Dreason and Alexander Danner, creators of Greater Boston!

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.

You can also help spread the word by rating and reviewing on iTunes or whatever podcasting service you are listening to us on!
