…for now, at least.
After a lot of thought, Chelsea and Morgan have decided to put the podcast on hiatus. It was officially announced last Friday to all the staff and patrons and then on the Animation Addicts Podcast episode 169.
“We have loved the Animation Addicts Podcast, the community, the memories and all the friends we’ve made over the past six years. It’s opened up some incredible opportunities that would not have been possible without it. But in looking ahead, we have a lot of big life events and projects coming up and need some time to focus on those. We’ve tried to juggle life, work, other projects, and the podcast but we really need to better focus on those things for now.
The website will continue, business as usual, and we’re not saying the podcast is done forever. The episodes will always be available here and the YouTube channel will continue as it has in recent months. We may decide to bring the podcast back in six months, twelve months, or only for a special episode here and there. But for now, we are taking a break to focus on different projects.
It definitely was a hard decision and something we have been discussing for months. But we feel this is best to help us grow in other areas. The Patreon will be put on a suspend status after April, so no one will be charged but all the past patron episodes will also remain available. We’re not closing it entirely so that if we do choose to come back, we can easily let all former patrons know. Oh, and the patron Facebook group will still be open forever!
For our final episode, we want to encourage everyone to call in with any stories, memories, or good times about the podcast they want to share. Voicemails will be accepted until Tuesday, April 24, 2018.
Thank you so much for all the support over the years. It really has meant the world to us and we love you all very much.” – Morgan Stradling and Chelsea Robson
