Storyjammers has never lived up to my hopes for a regular release schedule, but the gap since our last release (now two months ago) puts us clearly into the realm of the podfading. With my (Jason’s) attention diverted more or less wholly to The Fifth World for the remainder of this year, I don’t see this state of affairs changing anytime soon.
We haven’t decided to give up on the podcast, though. In fact, I thought Ryan Macklin made some really good points about podcasts and seasons on his blog. So, the first 18 sessions will make up season 1. In January 2011, we’ll start season 2 with the new format. We’ll go back to a discussion show, and eliminate the other segments we added later (and if you have an opinion on whether that discussion should typically last an hour or a half-hour, please let us know in a note on this post). Each season will have a theme, with 10 sessions exploring that theme. In season 2, we’ll look at “The Rules of Storyjamming,” with sessions like “Against Cleverness” and “Bending (and Breaking) the Rules.”
