After 15 straight weeks of having a new interview for you each Saturday, I missed today. I have emails out to missionaries in a few different countries. I look forward to sharing those with you when we get them recorded.
A bit of the problem with interviewing many missionaries is that some are in places where they do not have reliable telephone or Internet service. I also knew that it would be easier to interview some missionaries while they are in the US on furlough or deputation, but that has been equally problematic since they do not always know when and where they will be to get an interview in. We are working through these issues. While I still have several missionaries from town here that I could interview, I would like to spread them out a bit. If you are a missionary, please drop me a message and we will see if we can get you on the show.
Though I have always released the shows on Saturday in the past, it was never my intention to do so. Saturday is a hectic day for me. I was planning to release them on Mondays. It was just that when I got started, I could not wait to get the first show up and it was ready on a Saturday.
Because of the nature of the show, I really don’t have much time to talk about previous episodes and future ones. This is because I want each show to stand on its own and therefore could be listened to in any order by an individual or groups without feeling like they have missed out by missing one show. Therefore, I am planning to record a short format show once a month or so to give you any follow up information that you might like to know with some of the missionaries. In this show I will tell you what are in the plans for future episodes as well. This will be where I can read some listener mail and tell you how people are using the Missionary Talks program. This will not take the place of one of the weekly interviews. It will be in addition to the weekly show. I will probably release it about halfway between two regular episodes.
Please take the time to write me and let me know what you think of Missionary Talks and how you are sharing it with others. I would love to hear from you.
