Hey, what's up? Hello, welcome to Sounds Fake, but okay.
Hello. A little different today?
No proper intro today. Uh, quite a bit shorter. As you can see from the title of this episode, your mother and I have something very important to tell you and it is that we are going on hiatus.
Yes. It is not an indefinite hiatus. It is a three month hiatus, which is several months, but...
Not every month.
Yeah, not every-
Certainly not every month. Yes. So, this is something that we had been thinking about and planning for a while. But with everything going on right now, we recognize that this is not the best time and also it kind of moved around our hiatus timeline a little bit. So, we apologize for the not ideal timing and also for not warning y'all. We had planned I think to warn you all more than like negative one week in advance.
We sure did.
Sometimes this is just how things shake out.
For better or for worse we've never taken more than two consecutive weeks off of this podcast since we started in 2017.
Probably for worse I would say that decision.
Yeah, probably for worse.
But we have our manuscript deadline coming up soon. We're both going to be experiencing some major personal changes in our lives in the coming month.
Yeah, I'm doing another cross country move, because I simply haven't moved enough in the past couple of years. Sarah will be getting a new job. We are manifesting this change. I have some tough family stuff going on. We both obviously still have full time jobs and real lives outside of our online situations. So, yeah, we're going to be taking some time for ourselves and also to just make our book and the podcast better.
Yeah, we're cashing in on our break now. We will be primarily off of our podcast socials. But you can reach us by emailing us email@example.com. We'll still be there and we’ll probably pop in the discord now and again. So, if you're not in the discord, now's the time to join. It's a party in there.
Yeah and feel free to message us like yeah, I am genuinely sad to be going through some major life stuff without like talking about it every week. I feel like it'll be weird to come back in April and be like lmao in a different state. You've heard nothing about it. Like, it's very bizarre. So we're still very happy to hear from you guys via email or leaving us messages in the discord so don't have to stay strangers. Your mother and I would love to hear from you.
Your mother and I would love to hear from you. In terms of Patreon, for those of you who are patrons, we understand if you don't want to give us your money during our hiatus because we won't be producing content. But for those of you who do want to stick around we do have some plans. We’ll post more details about it on our Patreon page itself. But Kayla do you wanna-?
Yeah, so like Sarah said completely understand you won't be getting the benefits that we promised when you give us your money. So, no hard feelings if you want to take some months off. But yes, so we obviously still need a little bit of money to just keep our website up and keep our episodes online but other than that the money that we won't be using just for general upkeep we're going to be giving to charity every month under the name of the sounds fake patrons. So, we'll be making a lengthier post or maybe we already posted it on our Patreon but we're going to do a poll every month and ask for your suggestions on what charities we should be doing and do a poll every month and giving to a different charity. So, yeah, head over to Patreon to check out more information on that but again, no hard feelings whatever anyone decides to do we completely get it.
Yeah, and in the next three months when we're not posting new pods, you know we've got a lot of episodes that you can listen to if you're ever missing us and there's a lot of other wonderful creators to give your attention to out there in the world so we welcome you have to do that.
Yeah, there's just hundreds I feel like at this point aspec creators making other podcasts, making YouTube videos, writing blogs, making social content, so yeah, please go give them your attention your ears, your eyes, your nose, your nerve endings and your tongue, really get all your senses involved that you can, you know.
Yeah and anything you're able to give you know we suggested...
Give your body to creators.
Donate your body to asexuality.
Donate your organs. While we're at it make sure you're an organ donor.
That's so true. I'm an organ donator.
I am too. Check your license make sure you an organ donor. You don't need them after you die, okay? Did you know in other countries being an organ donor is the default and you have to opt out and so other countries have a much higher rate of being an organ donor because of the psychology of opting out.
Yeah, that checks out. Anyway, we will see you guys in a couple of months. Stay safe, stay healthy, stay kind, stay funky. Take good care of your cows.
And remember, we live in a country and so do you.
And so do you. Peace.
