Yes, there’s a new podcast.
This one has been in the works for literally years because I think Shann first proposed this idea back in 2020, and it’s taken a while to get it going. The biggest hang-up has been my schedule. I know it sounds glamorous to say that I was busy, but in reality I tend to be a shitty juggler.
But! I finally figured that out. Meanwhile, the original idea evolved. It started out as the two of us discussing episodes of TV shows based on a theme and we kept the core of that idea. But scheduling chat times and the inherent hang-ups that came along with that became a real obstacle. It seemed like this idea was never going to get off the ground.
Then Shann made a brilliant suggestion.
We exchange episodes of shows to watch (preferably shows we haven’t seen or aren’t that familiar with) based on a theme, and record our thoughts separately.
Bingo! That solved the issue of scheduling and took the idea in what I think is a fun direction.
The final show: Shann and I force each other to watch episodes of TV shows based on a theme.
We explain why we picked the choices we picked, but whatever the other person thinks is out of our hands. No rebuttals.
So far we’ve only got two episodes out and one more in the wings, but we’ve got plenty of themes to keep us busy and a monthly release schedule to fill. Mark the second Tuesday of the month on your calendars.
Check the Hey, Watch This tab for a list of the episodes and more information (like where to listen!).
It could be fun. Or it could be torture.
