While January can be a fairly miserable time, with the tumult of Christmas and festivities hastily replaced with cold weather, dark nights and for most, a return to some form of drudgery – not to mention getting battered by Atlantic storms and/or being flooded out of your home – we at the C&M Podcast are being optimistic about the prospects in store. In 2013, they said that mankind would never colonise Jupiter. 12 months later, opinion is still pretty much the same (whoever “they” may be), but it’s an exciting thought, eh?
So our ambitions for 2014 are to try and make the podcast more interactive, where Pete and I talk about stuff inspired by yourselves. How will this be achieved? You may well ask. For a start, we’ll be bringing back stuff like the online poll, where you can vote for particular themes for the next podcast. And we’ll make it easier for you to interact with the show, via comments on this blog, emails and social media. It may all come to Jack (whoever “he” may be), but at least we tried. Just like the first plucky Jupiter colonists. When they happen (whoever “they” may be).
We’ll also try and get back to more regular shows which was made tricky with having another podcast to launch – although we’re very proud of Quiz Masters and if you haven’t listened to it yet, you should check it out via the link.
Finally, here’s an interesting interview alluded to in the Christmas episode where young Peter Marshall interviews the condensation of ’90s media brashness and vigour that is Terry Christian, for York’s local channel, One&Other TV. You can watch it here. Children, be warned – he says the word “nob” in it. And Pete does, too. And I just did, back there.
