It’s been somewhat quiet on the 4amcab website this year and that’s partly because of Rachel’s crazy plan.
Well, excuses aside, the gears have been turning and very soon you will start to see the fruit (mixed metaphors allowing). I thought it might be interesting to share what has been going on and fill you in on the plan for the rest of the summer, with the forthcoming release of series 3.
This time around, I decided to try things a little bit differently. With previous series we had found that the conveyor belt of writing, script editing, recording, editing and releasing (then starting all over again on the next episode) was a difficult one to maintain. Something had to change to make the project more manageable. I decided that for the third series I wanted everything to be written before I began the recording. The good news is, that’s nearly done.
Right now, at time of writing this, there are just a handful of sketches to complete. Next week I will be recording the first three episodes followed up with another recording session of the second half of the series.
So the big news is, I’ll release a short tease for the new series on 1st July and then two weeks later, on 15th July, the first episode will come out. As all the writing and recording for the series will be in the bag, this means I’ll release the rest of the series weekly. You’ll be able to hear all six episodes by the middle of August. Phew!
The final bit of 4amcab news, for the moment, is that I’m hoping to have a few new voices on the show. More on that shortly.
Set your podcatcher to stun* and get ready for the 1st July. It’s going to be a bumpy ride**.
