Announcement - Among the Stars and Bones Returning in Feb

por Ungodly Hour Productions

Among the Stars and Bones will be back Feb 19, 2020

Apologies for the radio silence, dear listeners. The last few months have been a ride. But happy to say we're coming back next month!

ANNOUNCEMENT TRANSCRIPT

Chris: "Hi all, Chris Magilton here, creator of Among the Stars and Bones and voice of Ben Kelleher. I want to start by saying thank you to all of you who have listened, shared, rated, reviewed and supported the show. With your help and support we’ve made it to well over 60,000 downloads, which I've gotta tell you is at least ten times the audience I thought we’d reach.

I’d also like to thank you for your patience. As many of you are aware, the podcast has been on hiatus since July 2019, a hiatus that stretched out far longer than it was ever intended to. Life threw a curve ball at myself at my family, not a bad by any means, but the kind that meant there just wasn't the spare time needed to work on the show.

I’m here today on this Audio Drama Sunday to tell you that in exactly one month, that hiatus will end. Episode 7 will be released on Wednesday February 19, with the other three episodes of season 1 following fortnightly thereafter.

It’s been a great ride working with great people to get to this point, and I am so happy to be able to share the end of this phase of the Among the Stars and Bones journey with you all soon. And I have no intention of stopping at just one season.

If you want to keep up with our announcements and news in the meantime, the best place is through our Twitter @AmongStarsBones. Alternatively there’s our website – amonghthestarsandbones.com or our facebook page.

If you’d like to help us out financially, please consider backing us on patreon at patreon.com/amongthestarsandbones where I’m working on commentary tracks and other bonus content from the world of the show.

That’s it for now so, meet you back here in a month? 'til then, take care."
