New Benefit for Scholar Warrior DHP Supporters

Hi Everybody,
I’m starting a new benefit for DHP Scholar Warriors (those who support the show at $5 or more per month.)
In addition to the existing benefits (access to special supporters-only bonus episodes, and eligibility to join the DHP private Facebook group), Scholar Warrior supporters of the DHP will now also have early access to regular DHP episodes 24-48 hours before they’re published on the regular DHP feed for the general public, starting with Ep. 147, the next installment in the Not-So-Civil War series (which is almost finished & will be published very soon.)
In addition, the versions of the regular DHP episodes that will be published on the Patreon Scholar Warriors’ feed will not have any Patreon & Amazon thank-yous or ads (if and when I run ads.)
This also means that Scholar Warriors will no longer have to subscribe to one feed for regular DHP episodes and another feed for Patreon Bonus episodes – you’ll be able to subscribe just to your Patreon feed and get both regular & bonus episodes, and not have to subscribe to 2 different feeds to get it all. (Of course, you’re welcome to continue to subscribe to both feeds if you just want to for some reason — such as, for example, to help slightly boost my download stats. 😉
Are you currently a Patreon supporter at <$5 per month? I certainly still appreciate your continued support at any amount, but I hope you’ll consider upping your pledge to $5+ per month.
Thanks & all the best,
CJ
