I'm not doing a regular show this week. It's the day after the election and I'm not feeling all that great. It seems wrong to do a show. The only thing on my mind is the election. I don't want a guest of mine to appear this week. It's not fair to the guest. I'll be back with a regular episode next week.
For now, and maybe against my better judgment, I'm gonna share my thoughts on what just happened to our country and the world. A little while ago I sat down and thought out loud and talked into the microphone. I tried to think as deeply as I could about what just happened and how best to respond. And I'm sharing it with you here. I hope that's okay.

Today's episode is a bit unorthodox. It's just me talking for an hour. Sorry about that.
As most of you know, the podcast has been homeless since June. I've managed to have a guest each week since that time, but this week I finally hit the wall. Couldn't get my shit together. Logistically too difficult.
The good news is, I should have a recording space within the next few days. The new home studio is almost done, almost operational. I even got myself some new gear to celebrate the show's 5-year anniversary. So once I get everything set up and moved into the new space, it'll be all systems go. Thanks for bearing with me.
And thanks for supporting the show for the past 5 years.
Here's to whatever's next.
