I’ll keep this short since this isn’t really a history episode, but more of a transition from season one to season two.
I went into this thing with very little idea of how long I would be doing it, or even exactly who I would be covering. It began with my interest in genealogy, which is why many of my early episodes have somewhat of a pedigree connection to me. And I still have more of those episodes planned actually.
But since the first episode was well received, and since I enjoyed doing a history podcast so much, I decided to expand into other historical figures, whose stories, I felt deserved to be told in a way that I wanted to hear them.
Then I hit up my sister who happens to be a graphic artist and she started producing the kickass cover art that runs with each episode.
Soon I began including the Almost Episodes as a way of publishing something of value on a more frequent basis, plus I just had so many stories that I wanted to tell that either didn’t have enough meat for a full episode, or weren’t specifically biographies.
