Well I have good news and bad news. The good news is that this week we have a delightful, though shorter than usual, episode with Author and long-time friend of the show Troy David Loy talking about his latest book Echoes of Forsaken Galaxies. This episode was originally intended to be a bonus show that we had hoped to put out soon, but due to some unforeseen circumstances you’re getting it now!
Which brings us to the bad news. The bad news is that you don’t get to hear the original episode we had planned to put out this week until later, and there will be no episode next week. Andy and I have several really great recordings lined up for the podcast including what should be this week’s episode of Andy’s participation on a panel at MIT. However, as you may be aware, here in the U.S. it’s Mother’s Day so I find myself on the other side of the country, dutifully armed with laptop to edit the show, and a thumb drive that contains the audio files which, at some point between Arizona and here decided to stop working.
All is not lost, I do still have the original files … on my desktop … in Arizona. But this does require us to take an unfortunate hiatus until I can get back to my hovel. That won’t be until after next week’s episode is supposed to go out though because I will still be traveling. So … we’re going to be compelled to take a week off.
Of course this could have been avoided if I had more room on one of my cloud drives … so if you, dear listener, would like to make it so I can afford to upgrade my cloud storage by becoming a Patreon Patron by going to http://patreon.com/nakeddiner Andy and I would certainly appreciate it.
