I have been reflecting quite a lot upon what I have learned with this podcast in this first year. It seems as though we have most certainly covered some of our favorite memories and moments yet there is more than just that. With lack of better ways of stating it, I love doing this shit. Hell I know I speak for both of us when I say that We love doing this shit. All the time, all the sacrifices, and all the the tedium is pretty inconsequential when you are looking back at the one year mark.
Don’t get me wrong, it hasn’t been all roses. I have gotten confused about audio software more than once and Brewer has to explain it to me. There have been multiple instances where we have had some fantastic idea and it morphed into something even more ridiculous and grandiose only to be forgotten before it is time to record. Our scheduled date has fallen through and we have to come up with content on the fly more than once. Plus there have been more than a few moments when we truly get under the other’s skin. Stacking this teetering pile of ideas and agenda into an outlet to be heard has not always been easy.
Often times we have been much too involved in the here and now to appreciate the journey, but what a goddamn fun journey it has been. I rarely feel this level of pride in something I have participated in. This has been both cathartic and a method of self improvement. Being able to open up and share some of my thoughts has certainly served as a method to reevaluate what is worth worrying about. Often times I feel like my best conversations are shared with our illustrious listening audience. They have listened to me cackle until I was going to vomit and get riled up to the point of wanting to spit. You have laughed at my expense as I have been unable to expel a coherent though and hopefully once in a while I have managed a thought or two that has made you think.
All things considered, this has been one fun year and We owe it to our rouges gallery, our subscribers, our casual listeners and of course our vehement dissenters. BS appreciates you all and promises to continue to be bigger, better, faster and more inappropriate as we meander into the future.
