Closing Song - "Smile" by Portugal. The Man

Oct 27, 2016

Hey guys, got an important (?) message for ya here: we are frazzled af over here at Everything is Awesome headquarters. KC is back at it with roller derby, I'm smack in the middle of a depressive trough, she's pulling down extra hours at her many day jobs, and the program we use to edit is driving me effing insane (sorry, Erica!) We have so many great interviews lined up, including a legit Pacific Northwest rock star from the 90s, a marijuana advocate and weed shop pioneer, and tons more amazing local comics, but the fact is we do this show for love and not money, which means putting out an episode a week is just way too stressful.

 

If y'all could find a way to help us do this faster and with less stress that would be kickass, but until we figure out how to squeeze it all in, the show's gonna have to come out in an irregular fashion. Hopefully biweekly, but it might end up being triweekly (is that a thing?), at least until our personal lives get a little bit easier to navigate. Anyhoo, you guys rule and we thank you so much for listening. Until next time, we are your hosts, and we love you!

 

Keep being awesome,

 

Jeff & KC
