Episode 26: Taking a Hiatus

 

Text/Script:

“Hello, hello, hello . . . anyone out there?” I know I do have some listeners, and for you all I now come to your eardrum with this notice: I have decided to take a hiatus from this podcast.  The primary reason: I’ve got more pressing projects I need to put the time into. I do enjoy podcasting, so I’m confident at some point I will be back at it.  Whether or not I resurrect Calling Doctor Freud, I’m currently uncertain. If you have any thoughts about the podcast, I’d love to hear them.  To do so, please go to the page “About Me.”

Thanks for listening.  And here’s to skepticism, self-knowledge, and ­transcending the belief in gods. Andrew Bernardin, signing out.
