Wow. It’s been a while. It’s been since April of 2018 since our last post of any kind, a podcast that was a throwback to the history of our show and this podcasting endeavor with Matt Schafer. Almost eight months to the day, I’m writing to say that things are in motion. Something new is coming.
What does it mean to say that things are in motion? Changes. Changes are in motion. Something new is coming. We’re still trying to figure out what that something new is. Everything is in a state of flux. One thing I can assure you is that THE UNADULTERATED BS PODCAST is not dead and buried. Far from it.
Melissa and I have been going back and forth over what THE UNADULTERATED BS PODCAST is. One thing we know for sure, the older “format” of the show that worked so well with co-hosts like Matt, Robert, Codar, and more doesn’t really fit with where we are in life or in this podcasting journey. We’re not quite sure if that means throwing out everything, baby and bath water, or tweaking things to better suit the two of us and those newer co-hosts like Greg, Craig, and Nate. One thing is for certain, the podcast is returning. In what shape, form, format? At this point, that’s unclear. We’ll work through things as we get into the new year and figure it out as we go. Something new is coming.
The world has changed tremendously since THE UNADULTERATED BS PODCAST began. We have, since the beginning, stayed true to the design language of our logos, websites, colors, and more from day one. Unfortunately, as the world has changed, so has what those colors and the iconography used has been associated with. When I see our logos and colors it just screams totalitarian regime. Maybe that’s just me. Maybe I’m the only one that notices the lightning bolts used sorta look like the Nazi ‘SS’ logos from WWII. It wasn’t intentional. Despite our willingness to be completely inappropriate and offensive, the one thing we don’t want to be associated with is those things.
With that in mind, you can expect to see some changes to the design, layout, and more of our website, logos, and the overall design language. That process is going to take some time, but for me personally, I want to distance ourselves from that toxic online and offline groups that our past design language now seems to evoke. Something new is coming.
SOMETHING NEW IN 2019
As it stands right now, I can’t give you specific deadlines or dates for any of the items discussed above. Do I know when our next podcast will post (or when the podcast we’ve had recorded since May 2018 will become available)? No, I do not. Do I know when the overhaul to our website and overall look and feel will take place? No, I do not. That wasn’t the point of this post. The point of reaching out to those of you who are still sticking with us was to let you know that we’re still here, after 8 years, and still attempting to find ways to entertain those of you who have let us into your lives. As the page turns on 2018 and we enter a new year, rest assured, something new is coming.
Until that something new comes to pass, listen back to our archives. Tell us what you want to see from our website and our podcasts going forward by providing feedback. Follow us on Twitter. We’re here, and we’re listening. We hope you’ve stuck with us and we look forward to speaking to you all in 2019!
