Well folks, the time has come to shut this site down. I have to renew the domain and plan, and unfortunately, WordPress’ price is just out of my range for an inactive podcast that has never generated any money.

But fear not! The Facebook page will remain active and all episodes will move to the original YouTube channel here. So subscribe if you’re still interested in old episodes, or in anything that may arise in the future. I’m still occasionally trying for interviews, but honestly, I feel that well has dried up. For the moment, I am focusing on stand-up, the sketch comedy side of Dead Weight Citizens Brigade, which you can check out here, as well as writing a TV series I’d like to make.

However, the purpose of this is not just to announce the site’s closure, but to promote updates of past interviews, as well as albums from Vancouver and Vancouver-adjacent comedians I’d like to see get more attention.

Additionally, though I’d been cryptic about it previously, I had plans to create a Witcher podcast, though I’m not sure it’s worth pursuing at the moment. But there have been significant developments and the first official images from the Netflix series, and I’m super stoked for it! If I do get it off the ground, that too would run on YouTube until such a time that it made sense to expand. I had hoped to have it on the go already, but it simply hasn’t panned out.

My time feeling like this was a real podcast was short-lived, but cool. I feel I accomplished something I never thought I’d be able to. I interviewed personal heroes, some of which even made a couple of their media pages and EPK’s which is insane to me, and did a lot of work I didn’t think I could. Thank you everyone for supporting and caring.

❤ Taylor
