I am not an avid church going guy. I wasn't raised going to church every Sunday. Not that there is anything wrong with those who do. In fact, my wife was raised to go to church every Sunday, and most of the time still follows that schedule as well as brings our kids there. I don't often go with her because I welcome the solitude that I rarely get at home when they are all gone.
Where am I going with this? Oh, right, so last Sunday which was Mother's day, my wife requested my presence at church. Being as how it was Mother's day, I couldn't really refuse her, so I went. During the sermon an idea hit me. I was watching what the Pastor was doing, and I thought to myself that what he's doing is essentially putting on a weekly show. Being good friends with the Pastor (He's married to my wife's cousin) I know how much other stuff he and his family have going on during the week, and yet he can still put on his weekly performance. I figured, why couldn't I?
On the way home from church I told my wife that the lord obviously spoke to me and said, "Though shalt make Tech Chop a weekly video podcast instead of a monthly podcast". Of course it didn't go down like that, but you get the idea. Anyhoo, the wife and I discussed how much work it would be, and developed a strategy. It seems that since I have several years of content to call back on here at Bauer-Power, and there's always something going on in the news, that I could easily take my format to a weekly format.
So that's what I will be doing. Starting June 11th, Tech Chop will be a weekly show every Monday. Our last Monthly show will premiere on Friday, June 1st, then after that, shows will come out every Monday. Because I'm making this change, I also whipped up a new virtual set. Check it out, and let me know what you think. I still have a few weeks to make changes if you all hate it.
Pay no attention to the background music. I just made this as a simple visual test to see how the background would look. What do you think about the background? What do you think about having a new episode every week? Good idea? Bad idea? Let me know in the comments!
