First off, I apologize. Truly, this is unfortunate and rather embarrassing.
So, alright. Here’s the deal: a recording just did not happen. Shifting work schedules, birthday obligations, physical injuries, and, for some, convention preparation all got in the way over this past weekend. Not even a Monday or Tuesday night recording ended up being possible, despite an attempt.
The current plan is to nail down a recording this coming weekend to discuss both GamesCom and PAX, answer listener emails, and share our now-long-awaited interview with Tygra himself, voice actor Matt Mercer. For those of you who have been counting on and eagerly anticipating this week’s episode, I deeply apologize for the massive delay.
For a more detailed explanation of our current podcasting situation, hit the jump.
As defacto editor-in-chief, executive producer, and green-stripey-sock’d nanny of JKP in all its forms, trying to rally as much of our crew for a weekly recording has become an increasingly difficult challenge. Not all of us get the same amount of satisfaction from this show, and in the Fall months other priorities start knocking this show down a couple of pegs. I love doing this show, but I’m currently trying to plan and pay for a wedding, move into a new home, and juggle a double-armful of after-hours work for a variety of sources. (News on that is forthcoming, by the way.)
It has genuinely been a joy to manage and host this dog-and-pony internet radio show with no greater ambition beyond helping people get through their commutes, work days, work nights, jogs, prison sentences, and, ideally, tender lovemaking sessions. (Zack’s voice has an invigorating effect, ladies. Try it sometime.) This podcast and its surrounding online environment has been a high priority for me for the twenty months that this show has existed, but right now my priorities must be placed elsewhere.
Thank you for your patience, thank you for your enthusiasm for our show, and thank you for taking the time to read this explanation. This week’s podcast will also contain a bit more elaboration regarding some changing plans for this site and this podcast, since there are other matters and developments that I would prefer to reveal in that format.
I’ll be fielding any questions you guys might have in the comments below.
