Much has happened in a short time as we are now only a few weeks away from the launch of the Prism of Madness podcast. We’ve got episodes edited, interviews both lined up and recorded, and the format tweaked. We’re still a bit rough around the edges and we don’t yet have opening/closing music or even know if we want it yet. The new Prism of Madness logo is being completed and will be done by launch. Now it’s a focus on content, content, content.

Even though this personal blog is more of a think-on-digital-paper type of effort for myself rather than something people are regularly reading, I still don’t want to reveal the interviews coming up on the podcast. More accurately, I DO want to reveal the interviews coming up, but I won’t until they actually air. Got to keep the surprises, but seriously, we snagged some very cool interviews.

What else to say? Just an expression of gratitude to all the people who have patiently helped us get going. Gratitude to my co-host Chris for his positive energy, drive and completely weirdo, off-hand idea for the podcast name Prism of Madness. Gratitude to the good folks over at Riverside.fm for being responsive to my questions and for making a user-friendly distance podcasting platform. Gratitude for sound engineering service Auphonic for making my life so much easier. Thanks to my son Gavin for helping do smooth audio edits and fixing some of my particular rough cuts, and to Chris’ son Connor for his patience as we contracted him to design a logo and then completely changed concept on him right in the middle. Giant thanks to the directors, producers, writers, production coordinators and other movie personnel who had faith in us and granted us interviews even before we officially launched. Thanks to Richard “RB” Botto for creating Stage32 and to all the cool folks I’ve met over there to keep me in touch with other screenwriters and movie personnel.

Thanks everyone. This is going to be a fun, mad ride.
