Just an update on the state of the show. I took a summer job at a live music venue, and the hours have been hectic so I’ve found little time to focus on the podcast. Episode 46: The Fall of Fort Vaux is written, and once I carve out a free day it will be posted. It should be up in the coming weeks. August might be a difficult month, but because fewer acts have been booked there should be some more flexibility with the schedule. July was a monster, so I’m glad it’s nearly over. Since the job is so mind numbing, I’ve had a lot of time to think about how I want to approach things. Once things settle down for good in September, we’ll hit the ground running and press forward. I’ve acquired a lot of great sources on the campaigns in the Mid-East and Caucasus, and I also plan to create a mini cast (5-8 eps) that focus exclusively on the air war. As a huge aviation nerd, that should be a lot of fun! So have no fear, the show is not cancelle [...]. . .

It turns out that the Great War Podcast will be taking two weeks off between episodes, so there will be no installment this week (August 25). I do sincerely apologize for this but it’s for the good of the show. I confess that when I started this podcast I pretty much just jumped right into it headfirst. There was no grand outline, save for a few brief sketches of where I wanted to take it next. Initially it was just a fun hobby, but has come to take up more time then I had previously imagined. So my plan is to take the Labour Day long weekend off, stuff my face with ribs at the Burlington Rib Fest and then launch right back into this thing for the week of September 8th. That should be just the right amount of time to get everything in order and be ready to hit our discussion of the Balkan Wars and July 1914 in full force.
