Hi!Well, a little over a month has passed since I posted the last episode, and what a busy month it has been.The longed-for tapering off I’ve been hoping for has yet to transpire, but I’m still working hard toward my self-imposed deadline of getting the next episode posted before the end of July.Since I’ll be away the better part of next weekend, that puts a little extra pressure on me, but I still think I’ll be able to pull it off.So keep your eyes out for Episode 10, “Picking Up the Pieces,” coming your way soon! Also, my ongoing busy-ness is, unfortunately, making the weekly(-ish) podcast schedule untenable, so I wanted to let everyone know that I’ll be dropping back to a bi-weekly schedule for at least the month of August, and possibly for the remainder of the podcast.That’s the only way I feel I can give each episode the time and attention it deserves.Trust me, you do not want to short shrift the Neo-Assyrians – they tend to take things very personally. Thanks again for listening, …
