I just posted episode 2.5 of my podcast What Now with Simo. In this episode I outline a course correction I made for the Northern Exposure book series and its associated podcast. In short:
- The main focus of my work must be the book and the full-length recordings. These will be several hours long per episode — all of it substantial. These recordings will be the basis of each chapter in the book series.
- The NX podcast As Fresh as Northern Exposure will consist of excerpts from these long recordings — in other words, excerpts from the work as it’s being written. I’ll make colourful selections to make for a satisfying and rewarding meal in its own right.
- For reasons I discuss in this episode 2.5, the full meal must be left for the books and the full recordings, which my current plan involves releasing as commercial audiobooks at the same time as each volume of the book series.
The words are flowing beautifully and from a good and deep place.
