Do you remember, way back in the before times, a wee little YouTube show I ran for a while? Well... I'm bringing it back. That's right, Nights at the Round Table is back.
Those who receive my newsletter already know the gossip, but here's the brief:
I'm exhausted as it is and terribly worried about burning out, so instead of one show a week as it was in the before times, I'm cutting it right back to one episode a month. That means we'll be focussing on the aspect of the show that I am most in love with - books.
If there is ever a universe in which this takes off, and I can somehow afford to cut back on the 9 - 5 job and pay my guests, I may increase the number of episodes. For now, though, as I will be the one who is organising, editing both the video version and the podcast audio (yes, I'm releasing it as a podcast as well), and trying to stay on top of the social media (which anyone knows is not my strength), I can currently only manage one episode a month.
I'm actually really, really excited to be starting this again, and though it's a lot of work on top of my writing, art, teaching, and regular 9 - 5, I can't wait to get started.
We're streaming the episodes live on Twitch and then a week later uploading them to YouTube where they'll live forever... or for as long as YouTube lasts anyway. There is also a book club for those of you who want a dedicated space to continue the discussion. It's 100% free, and is basically what I wish Goodreads was. Join us for more bookishness! If you'd like to read along with me, join me on Story Graph. We can do this thing called a buddy read, where I can upload my notes/thoughts on the book as I'm reading it, and they will remain hidden from you until you reach that point in the book, so there will be no spoilers. It's a really cool feature and I'm looking forward to interacting with folks there. Click any of the links to sign up/follow/subscribe if it interests you. No obligation, of course!
So, the first episode of the rebooted show will be happening live on Twitch on January 22 beginning at 11:00am. If you don't feel like joining us live, subscribe to the YouTube channel if you like? The first episode will be up on the 29th of January at 9:00am. It's my hope that I'll get the episodes up on the last Sunday of every month.
As to what the first episode is, well, we'll be discussing the book Legends & Lattes by Travis Baldree.
Alright, it's quite late at night at the time of writing this, so I have to sign off now and go to bed. Until next week!
PS - I'm streaming games again (I had stopped for a little bit) and will be kicking off 2023 with one of my most anticipated games, God of War: Ragnarok. Friday evenings at 7:00pm. See you there!
