As much as I wanted to be able to present Mark Tremonti EP - 9 on Thursday 2-18-21, there was still too much work left and the episode just wasn't ready. Being behind schedule is no fun for you or me and it certainly isn't because I've forgotten about all of you and your RWTD cravings! I have a passion for doing these episodes and I have a standard I'm trying to maintain. In many cases, the episodes require a lot more work than just recording conversations, so honestly, I am getting a bit worn down and haven't had had enough time to recover between episodes.
I've been putting in 10-12 hours a day this past week to get this episode together for you as well as prepping next week's episode! I'm exporting the file tonight and doing quality a control check in the morning before uploading. The Mark Tremonti Diver Down episode is finished and available right now.
As we are coming to the end of "The Early Years" I'm planning to begin the weekly live listening parties. As soon as Jennifer Batten EP -10 1984 is finished I plan to begin going live weekly.
During the weeks of hanging out with you for the live listening parties, production on season 2, "Right Here, Right Now" will ramp up. Right now, episodes are taking about 10 days to 2 weeks and I'm looking for ways to shorten that process without diminishing the quality of the episodes. So, just a heads up - while we are doing the weekly listening parties for the "Early Years" there will be a short hiatus for new episodes so production can catch up.
I'd love to hear some comments from you about scheduling the listening parties each week. I know we have many guests in Europe so I'd like to be able to accommodate a good time that can work for people's schedules. I'll be as flexible as I can so we can make it work for everyone.
Can you please leave some comments suggesting some days and times? I'll try to make a plan after I hear from you. Also, get your questions ready! I'll be playing the episodes and reading your questions, pausing the audio when necessary!
Thanks for your patience, understanding, and assistance!
