Hello all. This week we are trying something new. Normally each episode would be about 2 hours and have two segments. Instead of doing this each week we will release the section where we talk about our week as a separate episode from our main topic. Only the main topics will get episode numbers, while the weekly roundup shows will be dated.
This allows us to do a few things.
1- It lets me release content on a more rapid schedule. Editing almost 3 hours of audio each week takes a while. Releasing the first segment as its own episode gives me more time to ensure the main topics are properly produced while still giving you guys content to listen to.
2-It allows those who ONLY want to listen to the main topics decide if they want to do so. This was a piece of feedback I received often, so I'm curious to see how it goes.
Without further ado, here's the crew's chat for the week of 7-6-18
Our next main topic episode will be a club episode for the movie Pain and Gain
