First off, thanks for listening! I really enjoy making this podcast, but it makes the effort all the more rewarding to see the subscription numbers slowly climb. So if you know anyone else who might be interested in The Ancient World, please feel free to spread the word. For those who don't know, the podcast is also up on iTunes, which makes it super-easy to subscribe. You can also post a review there if you'd like. If you have any other feedback, you’re welcome to post (or message me) at the Facebook contact link. Either way, I’d love to hear from you!
Now a bit of logistics: Remember April? Ah, that was a lovely month, with every weekend free so I could get some traction getting this thing off the ground. Unfortunately, such things never last. The next few months have just enough work and personal travel to throw me off my weekly podcast schedule. My plan is to get the next episode up on May 20, then hopefully post additional episodes on May 27 and June 3, which (again, I’m hoping) should take us up to the Bronze Age Collapse – you know, that period around 1,200 BC when the hand of fate picked up the regional etch-a-sketch and gave it a good, hard shake. After that, I’ll probably be a few weeks before I’m able to post again. But never fear, I am 110% committed to completing this project, so please stay subscribed and await further updates.
On the brighter side (for those of you who enjoy this podcast): I don’t think 12 episodes are quite going to do it. As I proceed through this effort, I’m finding that my nice, tidy 12-episode outline is slowly expanding and re-shuffling as I come across more new information I want to include and different ways I want to approach the material. So, 12 will probably become more like 15 by the time things are done. But I’m happy to keep making them as long as you keep listening!
Thanks again for supporting the podcast, I really appreciate it!
