The Return of the Contains Moderate Peril Podcast
Finally, after several months of diversions and distractions, I’ve managed to produce a new podcast. As I mentioned in a previous post, the Burton & Scrooge Podcast has been officially retired and for practical reasons of brand consolidation, the Contains Moderate Peril Podcast has been reinstated and will become the official show for this website. However, it should be noted that this latest episode is specifically designed to be a technical test meant to validate our RSS feed for submission to iTunes. Once this logistical issue has been dealt with and the podcast is accessible on all major platforms, then further episodes of the show will be scheduled for Autumn.
Episode 174 of Contains Moderate Peril was originally recorded in late April this year and features guest appearances by long time contributors Brian and Sean. However, due to a multitude of real world matters, the show was temporarily shelved and it has only been in the last few days that I’ve been in a position to rectify the technical problems that beset the recording and produce a final edit. All things considered I am happy with the final results and think we have produced three talking points that are still interesting and relevant, despite the three-month gap.
Moving forward, there will be several changes to future episodes of podcast. First and foremost, my good friend Brian will be taking a sabbatical. Simply put, he has pressing real world matters to attend at present. I shall miss his input greatly having regularly recorded with him since 2010. However, change is an inevitability and is something that should be embraced, rather than rejected. So, I shall be continuing the show on my own and with the occasional guest from time to time. Like the website itself, I shall be broadening the content, so don’t be surprised to find a more diverse spectrum of topics explored. I certainly want to cover more film related material in future episodes as well as explore current news items.
Like the Contains Moderate Peril website, I have clear aspirations to grow the audience for the podcast. However, I have set myself some very specific criteria for this undertaking. If the show fails to meet them then I will cease producing the podcast. Although I enjoy creating material and engaging with listeners, there is ultimately an effort to result ratio to consider. Yet as I am currently taking advice with regard to the marketing and promotion of the Contains Moderate Peril Podcast, I remain confident that the show will find a wider audience than previously. I would urge those who enjoy the podcast to retweet links, leave favourable reviews on appropriate platforms and to recommend the show to your friends and colleagues. For the present, you will find the latest episode of Contains Moderate Peril on our "podcast" page, which can be accessed via the menu, above the logo at the top of this page or by clicking here.
