No fun! “STUN” done!
As of today, “STUN,” the comic book podcast I’ve hosted since October, 2006, is no more.
It was tough to come to this conclusion, but inevitably I decided to quit while I was ahead. As I try to balance a personal life with a career, work on “STUN” has become a huge frustration. Booking a show like this has been, and remains, incredibly difficult. None of the major companies have responded to my calls or email, nor have a vast majority of the creators I reached out to. Given that, I’m incredibly indebted to those who played along and agreed to be on “STUN.” I greatly enjoyed spending time with each and every one of my guests, and I hope they had fun being on. The roll call:
Akins, Tony (2x)
Anderson, Matt (2x)
Bloom, Eric (Blue Oyster Cult)
Miller, John Jackson
Pandav, Kaustubh (Shock Stars)
Rude, Steve “The Dude”
Thanks also to Jaime Black, who did an exceptional job as reviewer/correspondent for the show.
Huge, huge, huge, HUGE thanks to Executive Producer Patrick Brower. Patrick appeared multiple times as a guest on the show, helped book guests, designed the logo, built stunpodcast.com and maintained the MySpace page, and evangelized the podcast far beyond any means I was capable of. If there’s a “hero” to be named from this comic book podcast, Patrick’s the guy.
Thanks to everyone who listened and gave “STUN” a chance. Given the show’s very niche appeal, the fact that anyone listened (and at times, there were a lot of you), is incredible. Thank you for your support.
http://stun.mypodcast.com will stay live for the foreseeable future, as I can’t see any real reason to take it down.
As for me, I’m taking the free time I have and throwing it into writing. I hope to have a progress report on “Chicago Rocked” soon, and I’m actively working on a few other projects.
Thanks for listening,
