Podcast release timeline announcement

Hi everybody!

I’ve been doing a lot of preparation for season 2, and I’m very excited about the content coming up!

Before season 2 gets started though, I wanted to make an announcement regarding the continuity of the podcast, and give a little reasoning for how I came to this decision:

Geeked on History will no-longer have a strict release schedule.

When I decided to start up a history podcast, I did so because I wanted a new hobby that utilized one of my life-long passions. I’ve always been a nerd when it comes to modern history, and I wanted to make a podcast that gave me the opportunity to share that passion with others like myself, but also enrich my understanding¬†with research on topics that were of a particular interest to me.

After having more time between seasons 1 and 2, I’ve been able to do the research on those topics with the amount of time I really feel like I deserve, and more importantly, that the topics deserve in order for me to be able to cover all of the nuances properly.

I feel that doing the podcast without an arbitrary schedule will produce the kind of podcast I had intended to produce from day one.

I hope that you all will see the difference, and that the podcast reflects the kind of quality that I had intended for it from day one.

Thanks for reading, and keep it geeky.
