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.
Emma Vieceli and Dan Berry talk about running a kickstarter campaign, staying healthy and Existential Dread.
