As you all would be well aware, we have not posted a new episode since January this year when we put up our first part of the 2021 Year in Review.
Not long after this, we attempted to record the second part, but due to some technical difficulties, we lost the file. Over the years of the podcast, we’d been pretty lucky, losing a few part eps that we could easily re-do, but never a whole episode. By the time we realised it was lost it was too late that night to re-do, so we agreed to catch up the following week to record again.
But as it has a tendency to do, life got in the way, and by the time we both had a free night to catch up and record again, I decided that mid February was probably a bit late to be discussing 2021 films, so we scrapped the idea and planned to move on to our next show topic.
Unfortunately, somewhere between I realised I’d lost my podcasting mojo. Part of the love of the podcast for me was not just talking about the latest game we’d been playing, or watching a crazy Xmas special, but actually getting together with Mitch to play or watch together before getting to chat about it. Something that is immensely more difficult now I’ve moved to a totally different state. I’d also began to realise I wasn’t actually enjoying most of the media I was consuming, so making interesting content discussing it was also getting harder, so I decided it might be time to take a little break.
During that break I found it harder and harder to justify the podcast. Yes, I’ve had fun along the way talking up the stuff we did cover, I really think the Ska, and One Hit wonders episodes were some of the best ones we’ve done, and I also love our Christmas Specials despite the extra work editing a daily show for a couple of weeks, but I think my passion for podcasting is done.
So that being said, I’ve made the decision to leave The Massive Attack Podcast. Mitch is still deciding if he wants to keep going as a solo show, or maybe find another co-host, so keep subscribed to the feed as there could be exciting new content coming your way. I also want to add a big thanks to everyone who supported the show in its current format.
Cheers, and stay safe.
