It's our Year in Review! A show we like to do once a year to go over the podcast from the previous year. Go over our goals for the upcoming year, and note what we succeeded on and what we did not succeed in from the previous year. We always have lofty goals, and often fall considerably short. This year is no exception, from where we hoped to be, and where we hope to go. 

First up: we switched to a mostly weekly schedule, and we've kept it up for the most part, only taking off a few weeks here and there due to illness or unforeseen events. It's also something we plan to continue with an exception of a few weeks off in early to mid July (coming up here soon), and some time off during the holidays. 

Second: We did a couple of interviews, and as John said the one we did with gough from www.beernutsproductions.com was one of his favorites. And one of mine (in fact he's going to be on episode 72). We are hoping to be able to do more interviews and have more guests going forward. There are some technical issues that we are still trying to work out, but the next episode gives me hope going forward. 

Third: More animation! We are gradually narrowing the focus of the show to cover animation and comic book films and television, and horror movies. We will be covering Avatar the Last Airbender the end of the summer, and I'm excited. 

Fourth: Moving platforms. We will be moving platforms when we get started up again. I know where we will be moving, but when it actually happens I'll be announcing it here, twitter, facebook, google + and all the usual places. 

Finally: Something we didn't talk about. The YouTube channel. Yes we do have a YouTube, and yes there is some content. When we get started again at the end of July we will begin uploading again, though the animated vids will continue to be on hiatus until our video editor can sort out all the hardware issues they are currently having. 

I'm excited. We're still having fun, and quite honestly the last year has given me the energy I need going forward. John's projects will begin to appear, hopefully before the end of this year, and I'll be helping to produce those. I also have some projects that I'll be starting as well. The next year looks bright. 

We can't wait!
