The End Of An Era
I know I've been having some health issues, but some of you might be wondering when Ian & I will be getting to those promised Season One retro episodes.

I'm afraid I have some bad news.

Because of work/time related issues, Ian has told me that effective immediately, he will no longer be able to participate as co-host of TWSS.

When I thought up this crazy idea for a podcast last Summer, Ian really stepped in and helped save my bacon.  I felt the show was something of a snooze-fest as a solo production, and he really helped to establish that sense of banter and reparte that I think we've become known for.  For that, I definitely owe him a debt of gratitude.  It wasn't easy putting out more than 25 episodes of TWSS this past season, and he stuck by my side through thick and thin (except when he had to go party in Hawaii... the bastard).  He participated here on the blog page, and did a lot to help the show become what it was.

So now I'm left with a couple of choices-- end the show, go back to a solo show, or try and find a new co-host. 

I think it'd be a shame to just quit, and if episode #3 of TWSS taught us anything it was that I should not do this alone.  I guess that leaves option number three, although part of why I did the show in the first place was because it allowed me to work with a friend... I'm not sure if I can find someone else who I can be comfortable with or who'll make me want to record an episode when my grades are due or some other bit of trouble crops up.

So here's what I'm going to do-- if you think you'd like to try and step into the TWSS co-host role, I'm going to hold open auditions.  Send me an audio clip of yourself talking about an episode of THE OFFICE, making sure to tell me what you liked about it, and some things you thought could have been better.  You guys know how we roll-- I don't want anyone who can't be both objective and critical of the show.  If you think every episode is "the best episode," don't bother to waste my time. :)

I don't really know what will come of this whole thing, to tell you the truth.  Maybe I'll find someone that I really click with.  Maybe we'll have a rotating panel of co-hosts.  Maybe, in the end, I'll just decide to retire from the world of podcasting.  We shall see.

I'm planning on releasing a mini-episode sometime in the next few days which talks about this and gets out to everyone that subscribes, opening up the field for possible co-hosts even more.  I just thought I'd let you guys in the "inner sanctum" get the first head's up. 

Thank you, too, for your patience and support of the show this past year.  Both Ian and I really appreciate it.
