This is ad-free bonus episode to finish up Season Eight. Just a quick update on my plans (or possible plans) for the podcast.
Here’s a PDF copy of the episode.
Hi everyone. Well, it’s taken me a while to put up this particular episode, which I hadn’t quite expected a lot of things to happen, unfortunately. For one thing, my computer crashed. That did not help at all in terms of getting things done on this podcast or on anything else. But in any case, I am in mostly recovered mode at this point and probably have lost quite a few photos as a result of this and maybe not. We’ll see. In any case, I just wanted to say that I’ve really enjoyed doing this show and I really would like to continue doing it.However, what I’d like to think about also is what else I can be doing that would be an interesting new direction. So I wish I came here with a master plan all worked out and ready to tell you about, but I don’t have one.
Yeah, that’s the truth. I am simply considering options at this point, and among the options I’ve considered are putting together anthologies by authors who have appeared on the Crime Cafe, things like that, other than the one that I already offer, the ones I already offer. So that’s something to consider. And the other thing I’m thinking about is something in between that, like say periodically posting short stories from, or essays or guest posts from the authors, doing random interviews. I don’t know, it just depends on how things develop and what I feel I’m capable of doing at this point.
So yeah, my capabilities are somewhat limited in that I have dystonia and it’s a movement disorder as, I don’t know if I’ve ever talked about it on the podcast, but I have it. And lately the treatment has not been working very well, so that makes life a little more difficult in general. But having said that, I just want to say that I really appreciate how much support the show seems to be getting in terms—I look at the statistics in terms of downloads, and they’ve been going up—and I get so many requests to be on the show, and I feel really honored by that. I truly do. And I also want to thank everybody who listens, everybody who watches the YouTube channel, the patrons on Patreon. Thank you.
Yeah, that I was not expecting. Not expecting at all. Be seeing you.
PS: I endeavor to provide more than just another podcast with your support.
