Horror Movie Podcast has been a bi-weekly show that is often late to post. We’re thinking about moving the show to just twice per month, still roughly aiming for an every other Monday release schedule. Technically, that would mean a few less shows per year, but practically, it would mean that our shows would be posted on time more often and would help ensure that the mental health of your hosts is is a place where we can continue to deliver the show for years to come. We would love your feedback on this.
