2019 Summer Break

Don’t get me wrong. I’ve enjoyed the break we’re taking from RadioWest. It has given us a chance to really think about the possibilities of making a new version of the show. Yet ... I’m starting to feel antsy. It’s because I’m constantly reading things or seeing things that make me think, "That would be a cool show." But we’re not doing the show right now, so we have to wait and then the moment passes.

I’ve been thinking about Ira Glass this week. And Wendell Berry.

It’s weird not having a deadline. That’s been my usual response to people asking how our break is going.  One of the first things I’m asked is, ‘What are you doing, exactly?’ I feel sheepish about saying I’m doing a lot of thinking right now, because that doesn’t exactly seem productive.

Hi friends,

We didn’t really plan it this way, but it turns out the last show we did before our summer hiatus was the perfect inspiration for taking a break. Part of what we wanted to accomplish in these few months, was to step away from the grind, to go off by ourselves for a time and really just think about things.
