Seasons Greetings.... No A different Kind of Seasons Greetings

So with season 1 of the Drew Carson Show coming to an end in the coming weeks, Oct 30th being last show of the season, I have been thinking back over the show's humble origins and how it has grown. I have many friends telling me I'm crazy to have a 2 month Hiatus from the show while it is drawing the strong numbers that it is at the present but I feel the show needs to constantly adapt and change as do I. For that to happen I need to book my guests further in advance than I have in the past. I have been so blessed to have had the success with the calibre of guests that have said yes to the mad Scotsman asking them on social media to appear on a podcast they have not heard of but I need to adapt that also and approach potential guests through agents and publicists also. 

I also need to take the time to finish my novel as I have fallen behind and my word count has plummeted in recent weeks. I need to push through the dreck of drab to find my writer's voice once again and complete this story so I can release it into the world and set my mind free to concatenated on my next novel, the first in a trilogy of stories.

So after October 30th the show will be off air until January 9th but there will be content on the blog each week. I will be writing a weekly diary of how the writing is going, the editing process and selecting my beta readers. I will be keeping you up to date with all things show related including exclusive guest announcements and info. So thank you all for being such a huge part of this show and I look forward to bringing you exciting guests come season 2 in January.

The Drew Carson Show So Far

Here's a little visual example of all the special guests we have had up to now on the show. Its crazy to think back to the moment the strange idea for doing this podcast sparked into life to think that all these interesting and cool people would become part of the show along the way. I'd like to thank each and everyone of them for their time and for chatting to me and to also thank each and everyone of you for giving your time each and every week to download and listen to the show. Without all of you guys I would have probably given up around week 5 of our now 23 week journey. 

Here's to the next bunch of guests including Phoenix Jones on Friday and to all of you, long may the show continue.


This week's Guest

This week's guest is none other than real life superhero and MMA fighter Phoenix Jones. Jones patrols the mean streets of Seattle, Washington and competes for the World Series of Fighting MMA group. We discuss his origin story, what local law enforcement make of him, his super suit, his court case where he unmasked, his fighting career and so much more. This is a very inciteful interview with a very witty and funny guest that I'm sure all you guys and gals will love. The episode drops on Friday 9th October on Itunes and all other podcast apps as well as on this very blog. I will also copy and paste the link all over my own and the show's social media accounts (Facebook, Google+ and Twitter) so it shouldn't be to hard to find.

Big Picture Thinking

So I have now been podcasting for 22 weeks, I've made mistakes, made changes to the format along the way, met many fascinating people, made friends, found an audience of 1000s coming back each week and that audience is growing rapidly. So, I have decided that to keep that audience strong I will make the possibly stupid decision to finish season 1 of the show in the next few weeks, with 2-5 specials to follow fo the rest of the year including The Return Of The Beast as Dan "The Beast" Severn becomes our first returning guest. We will also have a Halloween special of some description (fingers crossed this pans out) I have a few ideas for what to do but may resort to providing a commentary track for a horror movie if interviews fall through. I promise it will be in-depth and worthwhile. I will also be doing a special where I will talk more in-depth about my debut novel Deamhan and when and where you will be able to buy it along with answering questions from you, the audience. Other specials are underwraps at this time to be revealed on this blog and our facebook page when they will be ready.

Season 2 would then start back in January with exciting interviews lined up with the kind of guests you will be excited to come back for and, as a plus, you all won't have to listen to another q&a from yours truly to cover a week we couldn't arrange a guest for (or atleast that's the plan) I will also be doing a book launch, fingers crossed, in January for which I will do a special podcast episode. 

I will finalise all the details after I reveal next week's guest so look for those blog posts coming soon and don't forget to tune in tomorrow for our newest episode featuring askthepilot.com 's Patrick Smith. 

Thank you

~ Drew
