Of course you don't. I didn't either. Anyways...
First and foremost, I want to thank everyone that listens to the podcast. Again. I know I say it about twenty times per episode, but I'm incredibly humbled that anyone cares enough to listen to me and my friends rant and swear (that's mostly me) about old video games. Our listener numbers are still climbing, and I'm grateful.
When I launched this podcast last year, I didn't know if anybody would listen. I had a previous conversational comedy podcast that lasted about 80 episodes, and never did more than about 15 downloads per week. I had low expectations for Remember The Game?, and my goal was to simply find something I was more passionate about, and use it as a way to continue trying to get comfortable behind a microphone. Over the last 12 months, it's grown from a hobby into a full fledged side project, and after months of tire kicking, I've decided it's time to try and take the necessary steps to level this show up.
I'm not quite ready to reveal what those steps are in detail yet, but my hope and plan is to roll everything out with episode 50 in a few weeks. I've sunk a lot of time and a little money into everything I'm working on, and over the next month my focus will be on learning how to stream, edit videos, and bring all of the additional ideas I have up to a minimum level of quality you've come to expect.
And if you listen to Remember The Game?, you know how low that level of quality is.
Anyway, that's all I really wanted to say. I have a busy month ahead of me as far as stand-up comedy goes, but I'm still going to buckle down and really commit to the unofficially titled "Remember The Game? Level Up" project. I've dragged my feet on these ideas for months. I was afraid nobody would support it, watch it, or care. That's still a possibility, but like Michael Scott once said, "You miss 100% of the shots you don't take". So dammit, let's take our shot.
Thank you all for listening, reading, messaging, and nerding out with me. I hope you continue to enjoy the show, and I'm excited to show you what I've been working on.
Go play some video games.
