Hi-

Here's the second episode of  Wandering the Aisles. Though the show has changed over the course of the project, I think this episode represents the inciting spirit of the thing. 

Me: I've spent a good portion of my professional life working in or orbiting radio work, doing standup, and writing. I left NPR a few years back because, well, I was drinking too much, reading too much Harpers, and had very few coping skills. But also because I wanted to hear something that better represented my experience. Something that sounded more like an attempt to connect the head to the heart. 

Since that time, the journey of my last few years has been a long master class in life experience that has mostly taught how I need other people to know what I really need. 

Further, I write and edit this produced podcast mostly in service to the idea that most entertainment is sanitized from realistic, non-sensational exploration of the quiet, quotidian reality of sex, death, family, and recovery. And this show is a place where I can honor this mission without ads and present feral stories as they happen in the wilds of NYC, Salt Lake City, Los Angeles and beyond.

[Insert catch phrase]!

Do you want Wandering the Aisles to be a more frequent/consistent podcast? I could do it if I had your recurring financial support. The amount of growth in downloads I've seen since launching the 3rd season is staggering, but this does not translate to a sustainable creative endeavor. Yet. I hope.

Since Wandering the Aisles is not just two guys behind a microphone talking about sports, it's not a cheap show to produce. It's everything to me, but it's also bleeding me dry financially. I invested about 10k in wireless transmitters, mics, recording, and editing equipment a few years ago...a lot of it is about to conk out. If WtA brought in ~$2500 per episode, I could afford to kill my copywriting work, focus on just the show, start to reinvest in mics and gear, and release the episodes more systematically.
