The Escape Pod Has Come In For A Landing

After over seven years of recording and nine years of research and writing, theLogBook.com’s Escape Pod has come in for a landing.

The Escape Pod has been theLogBook.com’s flagship podcast, and its only daily podcast. With the research and writing for the Escape Pod initiated in 2011, this is a project that has consumed a huge amount of time and effort over the past decade.

An opportunity has arisen for me to join a podcast that was being developed with a similar mandate – a daily slice of sci-fi history in kind of a compressed, bite-sized format. I’m on board this new project as a writer and producer, and will occasionally be a voice on it as well.

This transfers the research and writing that I’ve done for the Escape Pod over the past ten years to the new project, and that also means all of that effort finally nets a payday for me – and maybe a wider audience too, just by virtue of being part of a fairly popular podcast network from the word go.

I can tell you that I’m also aiming to keep the science mixed in with the science fiction. That was perhaps the element of the Escape Pod that I was proudest of, the fact that it was always a chance to strive for increasing the listener’s knowledge of science and real space exploration, and the history of those fields. I’ll be carrying some of that over to the new show…as well as my deep love for all kinds of sci-fi, no matter how obscure or how good or bad anyone thinks it is.

And the only other thing I can tell you is to watch this RSS feed early in November. Those of us who have been quietly plugging away at this show’s format, scripts, and presentation for much of this year are excited for you to hear the finished product.

It’ll be a lot of work, which is the real reason the Escape Pod has to come in for a landing – there’s just no way I could both shows at the same time. For the past few years, I’ve had a plug-in rotate the current date from a year ago to the top of the feed, but I have shut that down, so the feed has stopped updating. The episodes will remain here as an archive of the show’s run.

I appreciate everyone who’s listened to the Escape Pod for the past seven years, and everyone who’s offered feedback, both positive and otherwise. The idea behind the show was to lure you in with a bit of sci-fi to learn about something real, but the Escape Pod has taught me a lot over the years as well.
