It's been a year (give or take a day or two) since I put out the first couple of episodes of Wake Up Heavy. The months leading up to August were spent researching, acquiring the tools I needed to make it happen, and then learning how to use those tools. Those first four episodes (available below) are definitely a little less polished, and a little more varied in overall quality, but they're still fun to revisit.
Since then I have put out around 40 episodes (the WDIRT and Patreon episodes have been compiled, but were originally individually released), and look forward to many more. It's been challenging but fun and ultimately a very rewarding personal venture for me. I would like to think that things have improved overall and will continue to do so. I have no plans on quitting any time soon.
My daughter Cleo helped out with this one, as she did with the Introductory Episode, which will hopefully happen more and more as she gets older. Maybe I'll get her to watch Gremlins soon and we can talk about it. She's a 'tween though, so who knows!
Thank you to everyone who has listened to Wake Up Heavy, even if it was just one episode! Ultimately that's the point of all this, right? Otherwise I could just sit in front of the computer and talk to the screen about these movies. That would be weird though.
