State of the Podcast (A.K.A. What’s Going On)

Well hello there, Internet. I’ve gotten a ton of questions, comments, and concerns from you lovely folks in the last few months so I think it’s time for me to dig in and write a post for you guys to tell you where this thing is at and what’s going on.

For the foreseeable future Some Other Castle isn’t going to be producing any new episodes or video content. I’m not going to sit here and say this show is never coming back again because I don’t really know if that’s true. We’ve had long hiatuses before and have come back so this doesn’t mean we’re gone forever but it does mean we’re done for now.

The truth of the matter is that I’m personally exhausted. The combo of feeling burned out with podcasting, the resurgence of some of my other hobbies, bookmarking more time for my family, taking a new job, and just kind of wanting to play games instead of talking about them produces the recipe for someone who just doesn’t want to record things anymore. The scheduling of recording time and then editing, uploading, monitoring, and even paying for hosting the content just stopped being enjoyable for me. I needed to step away and reset, play games to enjoy them and do my own thing for a while.

I’m going to keep this site up for the time being and I will be archiving the entire WordPress installation with all content in case it does get pulled down. That sets me up for an easier time if we decide to come back. I will leave the twitter account for the show active so if anything changes you’ll hear about it on Twitter via that account.

I’m personally going to be doing my own thing on Twitch and Youtube for a while. I’ll stream games, interact with you guys, and post archives and other Let’s Play type of videos. If you’d like to follow along all that information is below as well as my personal twitter account. I’m still dancing with the idea of doing Extra Life 2015. As that develops I’ll Tweet about it.

Leah is still hanging out on Twitter via www.twitter.com/Improbable42 as well.

I know you guys miss us and every time I get a nice comment about the show it truly makes me smile. Hopefully at some point in the future Leah and I can reconvene to bring you guys some more content but for now the show is off the air. Thank you to all of our followers and fans who have helped along the way and who have listened to our nonsense. You’ve truly made this fun. I always feel bad having to put this show on hiatus because I know how much you guys dig the insanity. Definitely interact with us on social media. I’m frequently available and will do my best to answer and questions you guys have.

Again thank you for all your support. This show wouldn’t have been nearly as enjoyable without the community that loved it.
