Hpr Submission Policy

Why contact the admin@hpr.
We don't vet - it's a policy. Well it's my policy anyway, based on the fact that we are all peers and as such I have no right to say whither or not a show is "good". Each listener can make that decision for themselves with the aid of the fast forward button.
DMCA Safe harbour.
I do listen to the beginning and the end to see if I need to add the intro and outro. I'll play a random bit in the middle to see if the audio is audible. If not I plan to contact the host but I haven't had to yet.
