Because Sometimes Life Happens

As the title of this post implies, the complications of life sometimes drive us to make adjustments. Well, life happens.

Oh, don’t worry. Nobody is dying. Nothing is on fire. Nothing is fucked.

But we’ve found that with the growing complications of adult life, it can be a lot more difficult to spend a couple months trying to consume all the media you can find about a pop culture topic like Batman or Star Trek, composing our thoughts in interesting and funny ways, and producing a 90+ minute podcast about it.

We don’t say it a lot, but it’s a lot of work. It’s work we adore, but work nonetheless.

Sometimes it means months of prep work and dozens of hours of writing and research going into our full panel discussion episodes. And it’s time we simply don’t have to produce the panels as frequently as we’d like.

First, the bad news is that for the time being, you won’t see nearly as many full panel episodes of Radio vs. the Martians! as you’ve grown accustomed to.

Starting this month, we will produce approximately three panel episodes a year. We’re going to make them count, and make them good.

Now, the good news is that our monthly “Fun Size” episodes are going nowhere. We will continue to put them out as scheduled in the last week or so of every month.

What this means that you will see a lot more episodes of our sister podcasts Podcasta la Vista, Baby! and Hex & Violence to fill up our dance cards.

For most of the year, expect those two shows to alternate from month to month, only to be interrupted tri-annually for a full panel episode in the classic style.

So, breathe and relax. We’re not going anywhere. Some things are going slower. Some things are speeding up. And at the beginning of next year, expect one giant surprise we can’t wait to share with you.

Thanks for sticking with us, listeners. We’ll make it worth your while!

Podcasta la Vista, Baby! goes Bimonthly in May!

smile

Starting in April, our spin-off show, Podcasta la Vista, Baby! will go from a quarterly celebration of the cinematic legend of Arnold Schwarzenegger to a meaty, double-barrelled bimonthly experience!

That means every year, you will get 50% more muscles, 50% more explosions, and 50% more absurd macho bullshit, starting with Arnie’s first starring role in Hercules in New York in May!

How does this affect our main program, Radio vs. the Martians!, you might ask? Our panel episodes will move to a bimonthly basis as well, giving us even more time to write, schedule and gorge ourselves on delicious (and not-so-delicious) popular culture to make our panel episodes even better and more ambitious than ever!

But fret not, loyal listener! We will still have monthly installments of our Fun Size episodes to pick up the slack and keep you abreast of all of our non-Arnold related tirades and fan gushing!

Great things are on the way, folks!
