Announcement: New Shows Now on Tuesdays

From our kourageous, kinda kooky kaptain Karen:

Hi everyone!

Starting the week of 3/18, we will be publishing new episodes of Good Job, Brain! on TUESDAYS. 

We get so much mail from listeners telling us that they look forward to Mondays because of our show...which is exactly why I chose to publish on Mondays. I love the idea of starting the week with a mental workout so I truly, truly apologize for the day change.

I want to be perfectly honest and transparent: As some of you may know, we record on Sundays. Then I spend the rest of the day to edit, splice, and fact-check the show to get it ready for the next day. I frequently pull all-nighters quite the aggressive schedule. However, I just recently landed an awesome full-time job (YAY) and I foresee myself struggling to find time to get the show out on Mondays. (Also, I'm getting too old to pull all-nighters! Why was it so easy back in college?)

I just want to thank everyone for understanding, and I believe that having an extra day for me will actually improve the quality of the show! Really appreciate all of your support.

See you guys now on Tuesdays!

    In my opinion Mondays are the most pain in the ass day for everyone so it is good to have something that cheers us up on the very first day of week. But now you have changed the publishing day into Tuesday so once again Monday is going to suck badly. ...

Wow Karen had no idea you recorded and edited the podcast in one day, now that's commitment!.....or should that be madness!? I`m sure us fact finding fanatics can hold on another day, for what is without doubt a brilliant and well crafted podcast. And congrats on the new job too :)

Congrats on the job! I listen at work and so many podcasts come out on Mondays that I have a hard time catching up. It will be nice to stagger them a little! Thanks for the update.

Whatever you need to do to guarantee that I do get new episodes is fine by me. AS LONG AS I GET NEW EPISODES! Keep up the great work! :)

So, I saw the Tweet about changing the publishing date to Tuesday, and my initial reaction was "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!" all Star Wars style. After reading this, it's all good. You take all the time you need, Karen. Don't work yourself to death, that's kinda bad for your health.
Now that I think about it, this is totally better. I listen to several different podcasts, and I think most of them come out on Monday and I end up listening to them all at once, so the rest of the week, I'm just out of things to listen to. This way, I have to stretch out my enjoyment. :D
