Normally this is the point where I would talk about the podcast episode you are (hopefully) about to listen to and why I like or dislike the film in question. But I have other things to talk about today.
Before I get to that let me just say thank you to everybody who has listened, shared, linked, liked, commented, retweeted, etc. any of my stuff since October of last year when I launched this endeavor. It’s surreal to think that there are somewhere near 50 hours of my voice floating around on the internet and I have you guy and gals to thank for that.
Now onto business.
It turns out that scheduling recording sessions for these podcasts has been quite a bit more difficult than I had originally hoped. All of the guests that have appeared on the podcast have been more than gracious in giving up their time to sit down and record. However it’s gotten to the point where I’m having to badger and harangue my friends to schedule a recording or even just pick a movie to watch. I don’t really want to do that. I want people to sit down and talk to me because they want to do so, not because I asked them so many times that they finally just gave in and said yes.
So where does that leave us? Well, I could continue to record when and where I can and push out one or two podcasts every month. Or I could take a brief hiatus from posting podcasts, build up a good bank of them and then have a sizable chunk of weekly content for 2 or 3 months solid.
I’ve decided to go with the second option. I think it’s much better to say “Hey, we’ll have podcasts once a week for the next 8 weeks.” than “There might be a podcast next week, maybe.”
I can’t make any guarantees on a timeline for posting new episodes. It all just depends on when and how often my friends are willing to sit down and record with me.
In the interim I am going to make a concerted effort to write for the website more often. I know it’s been relatively spotty for the most part and I’d like to get something a little more structured in place, though I don’t know what form that will take yet. And of course you can like/slash follow us on Facebook and Twitter where I post and share items regularly.
I’m also toying with a few ideas for other forums and outlets but I’ll keep those to myself for the time being.
So that’s it. I hope you will all continue to peruse the site while the podcast is on hiatus and I will do my best to make sure there’s good content to keep you coming back. Also as usual please feel from to reach out via the aforementioned Twitter or Facebook. As well as e-mail or even leaving comments on individual posts.
