Hey folks. How’s it hanging? Welcome to the first official PodgeHodge blog post. It’s been a little over a year since we started the show, and with that milestone Crow and I have decided to spread our wings a bit and venture into new territory. There will be more news to come on all that we have planned, but as the adage goes, “good things come to those who wait.” Hang tight.
First, an update in regards to the show. I can hear the comments now:
“Where have you guys been? It’s been almost 2 months since the last episode.” – JamminJamaican1992
“Well, it took them 4 months to post episode 19… I reckon it will take them 6 months to post episode 21.”- LogicalLarry3.14159
“Wtf is this random blog post that I just stumbled upon, what even is a PodgeHodge?” -FortniteSuxApexIsGOAT
“Hey, what gives? I got pregnant the day that you posted your last podcast episode. I’m almost 10% of the way through my pregnancy and no new episode… Unsubbed.” – Becky
We hear you loud and clear. We know the schedule has been a bit inconsistent in the past few months. Life is inconsistent. The last 6 months have been rocky for both Crow and I. In those gaps there have been hospital stays, job changes, equipment malfunctions, and personal health issues. David Bowie must have been referring to content creators when he sang “It Ain’t Easy.” Thankfully, things have finally started to calm down. We are excited to get back to delivering quality content to you consistently, and boy oh boy, are we ready to do that in more ways than you can imagine.
2019 has proven to be extremely eventful in regards to the realm of gaming and pop culture. I mean, Kingdom Hearts III released. It’s ACTUALLY a thing. I could easily pine over this one thing for the remainder of this post, but I’ll save my thoughts for Rant or Rave. Additionally, the Resident Evil 2 remake came out and is widely regarded to be a masterpiece. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice (A.K.A. Dark Souls with a grappling hook) is darkening our doors, the launch of Devil May Cry 5 is a pull of the Devil Trigger away, and the next generation of Pokemon has been revealed for the Switch. I think it’s safe to say that 2019 is shaping up to be a spectacular year for gamers. In the wise words of the retiring Regginator, “my body is ready…” even if my bank account isn’t.
To wrap up this inaugural post, I want to simply say “thank you.” We started this podcast as a way of having fun and connecting with people just like you. People who have varied interests, who find appreciation in the menial and mundane as well as the profound and perplexing. The connections made, the comments exchanged, and the opportunity to build a community around these simple tenets truly makes this an experience of a lifetime. It’s an honor to be a part of your day and your story.
We’ll see you on the other side of the mic. Stay tuned.
