Hey there! Remember me? Yup, The Story Behind is finally back after a hiatus I did not expect would be as long as it has.
Here’s the short version of what happened and why it was so long, and I promise this has everything to do with today’s topic. I started editing and writing show notes for other podcasts on the side before I found out in October that I was going to be let go from my full-time job.
When I found that out, it was the week I was gearing up for episode 100, so on top of learning a musical number, I also made the decision to turn helping people with their podcasts into a full-time business in the new year. So, I spent the majority of my time creating E Podcast Productions, and if you’re interested in learning more about that, you can visit the website at EPodcastProductions.com, but you’re here to learn some history, right?
Besides for those who are new to The Story Behind and are listening to the back catalog, it’s like I never left. Although, none of this would be possible had it not been for the subject of today’s episode.
I’m your host, Emily Prokop, and this is The Story Behind the Pink Slip.
