Podcaster Stories will be taking a hiatus for the foreseeable future. After 50 plus episodes, with some very personal stories being shared, I've come to the point where I need to take a break for my own mental wellness.

Drew Toynbee is one of the co-hosts of Sequel Pitch, a show that takes a movie that never received a sequel, and has the co-hosts pitch their own, often with a special guest to judge the efforts.

Drew talks about how the idea came about, who the biggest movie fan is on the show, how a happy accident led to a new section of the show, and how the podcast community can better help support mental health of podcasters.

    For regular listeners of the show, you'll have noticed it's been a bit quiet here since Season 4 launched.

    Instead of the usual weekly series, only the first two episodes were published, and then silence. I sincerely apologize for this, it was definitely not the intent. Here's what happened.

    As you'll know, the show features podcasters opening up about their personal stories. These are stories that may not have been heard before in p...

    This week is a little different. As some of you might know, I also run a couple of other podcasts - one, as a host, and the other as a co-host. Today, I want to share an episode from the podcast I co-host, Mental Health and Us.

    It originally started out as a solo hosted show by my wife, Jaclyn, and was called Mental Health and me. It shared self-care and wellness tips to help other mental health sufferers and their loved ones c...

    So a funny thing happened on the way to getting Season 4 of Podcaster Stories ready - from personal and work life, to guests that weren't really right for the show.

    This resulted in the new season being delayed by about a month, which I apologize for. The good news is that Season 4 will be released next week, so I'm looking forward to sharing more awesome stories with you.

    There's also an update about the Quite the Thing podcast netw...

    On April 21st 2020, Podcaster stories was launched. Unlike my other podcasts up until that point, this wouldn't be a solo show - instead, it'd be an interview-style show.

    Not only that, but it would be an interview-style show with fellow podcasters, many of whom had interview shows of their own. So, to say I was a little nervous would be an understatement!

    But, 12 months on, I'm enjoying it as much as ever, and have some fun ideas re...
