Sci-Fi Shenanigans on Hiatus

Dear Listeners,


We wanted to take a second to give you an update about the lack of content for the last to weeks. We’re putting the podcast on a brief hiatus, but we will be back. I promise you that we will return to the airwaves! Why the hiatus? I’ve been fighting the flu since February 18th and it’s made everything more difficult. Added to that, the COVID stuff means that I’ve been homeschooling my kids and taking care of my wife. She’s been laid up for months and the surgery to make it better was postponed until the current health crisis passes. Because of all of this I haven’t had time to prep episodes or schedule guests.


We weren’t only family struggling. We’ve had a lot of guests cancel or reschedule so we lost our buffer, which means we need to schedule a slew of episodes and interviews to prepare to post again. What does this mean to you? A few weeks of dead air from us. However, we do have a plan! We’re going to take a month off to get our stuff in order. Then the second month off will be us recording buffer episodes so when we come back in two months we’ll jump right back on the crazy train!


We’d like to thank you for your patience and understanding in these trying times. Until then, stay frosty and don’t forget to keep your powder dry!
