New News: February 2021 Edition!

Hey hey guys! We’re still alive! Woo!

So how’s everything been going everyone? I hope you’ve all been well. Luke and I have been working our fingers to the bone to get through the holidays, and we finally made it. Huzzah!

A lot has happened since our last post. The US got a new President, we’ve got several COVID-19 vaccines, the US Capitol was stormed by terrorists attempting an insurrection, and that piece of shit Rush Limbaugh died. Also a set of major winter storms swept through the country and kinda ratfucked poor Texas (be strong guys!). Whew.

The point of this post is to bring you guys up to speed with changes we’ve implemented. We’ve basically changed the way we name episodes to make archiving easier. The new format will be ‘YYYY.MM.DD “<Episode name>”‘. Final released episodes will no longer be numbered. This makes sorting and retrieving them easier on me, so admittedly this change is just for my lazy ass benefit. Episodes will still be released on Tuesdays at 10am Eastern time, and will still be available on iTunes, Google Podcasts, Libsyn, RSS, other places, and, of course, this site. I’m exploring the possibility of releasing the episodes in differing formats as well, such as FLAC or OGG, but for the moment, MP3 will be the format.

I essentially call this change “Season 2” of the podcast, with episodes still being numbered like a sane person being “legacy” episodes. All of those episodes will continue to be available via RSS and the site, and on YouTube if they’re there.

That’s really about all as far as changes go. As for episodes, I will be releasing the episode that should have come out this past Tuesday next Tuesday along with the episode that releases that day. So, on the 23rd of February, 2021, you will be getting two episodes for the price of one. What a deal! Patrons will still get the episodes early; no worries there.

If you made it to the end of this, thank you.

Much love, y’all.
