Hi. Dan here. So you may have noticed that the podcast has been undergoing some kind of hiatus and has been following an erratic update schedule (to say the least). Here’s a short update where I talk about my recent situation and how I’m interested in developing the show. It’s only a brief update, and I’ll be aiming to be on a more regular schedule from now on, but I need your input. I wrote a version of this over on Patreon, please take a couple of minutes to give it some thought and let me know what you think.

I realised that a bunch of people I’ve interviewed over the years will be at TCAF this year. TCAF is one of my all-time favourite shows, and Toronto is one of my all-time favourite places largely because it is full of some of my all-time favourite people. Even if, like me, you can’t make it this year, check out these shows from the past few years.
Hopefully this helps you connect with and discover some great creators. If I’ve missed anyone, drop me a line and I’ll get it updated.

Hi everybody. Here’s a quick update on everything Make/Tell. I took September off working on the show so that my alter-ego Dan Berry the cartoonist/illustrator could meet all his deadlines. September soon turned into October too, so the show will be returning refreshed, full of vigour and raring to go in November. Thanks for sticking with me. It has been the absolute most busy I’ve ever been.
I also want to tease you with rumours of a new podcast launching soon in the Make/Tell universe. If Make It Then Tell Everybody is a show about everything that goes into the creative process, this new show is about everything that doesn’t. It’s a lot of fun to record and my co-host Hannah Berry (no relation) and I think you’ll really like it. It is silly. Keep your eyes peeled, there’s going to be a website/twitter launching in the next couple of weeks.
