As I teased last week, we’ve started overhauling the database that powers our directory and these newsletters. It’s quite a process, so my faithful assistant Allie is splitting the load with me. You should expect some wonkiness for the next several days until we get all the things ironed out. But it’ll be much, much more clear for you, the listener. And perhaps something a bit more manageable for the creators who submit their shows to us. We appreciate your patience while we get through the slog.

Some changes are apparent right now, as in the format of this newsletter. I’ll still give you two recommendations, but I’m also recommending Collections in each issue. As in their own section, not just a mention here in the preamble, which, let’s face it, you have skipped from time to time. I do the same thing, so I won’t take it personally.

Also, I’ve tightened up the time-blocks for each section from 30-days to a week. That will primarily impact the “Coming Soon” section. Which, let’s once again face it, was way too long looking out 30 days. It’ll also mean the “Just Added” section-formerly “ICYMI…”-will be a bit longer. But I think it’ll be a good way to highlight what’s truly new and coming soon, while still letting me tell you about the cool shows that aren’t newly finished but are new to the directory. Your feedback on any change is welcome, good or bad.

Let’s get into it, shall we?
