As of today, July 11, 2012, the Memory Palace is part of the Maximum Fun family of podcasts. Maximum Fun is a network of sorts, but I think of it as a collective. There are a bunch of podcasts. A guy named Jesse Thorn (whom you may know from his own podcast and public radio show, Bullseye, nee The Sound of Young America, or any number of other fine cultural whatnots) has brought them all together under one umbrella. It’s all rather punk rock (in economic sense of the word; it is decidedly un-punk rock in most others).
People donate throughout the year. Once a year, like your local public radio station, there’s a fundraiser. Listeners Like You throw in a few bucks and the people who make the shows get some of those bucks. Meanwhile, Listeners Like You get to comment and interact and ask questions/troll me on the new Memory Palace page on MaximumFun.org. Please head over there and poke around. Try out some of the other podcasts. There is a lot there to like.
So, what does that mean for you, Memory Palace listener?
Well, the best thing is that it means you’ll be getting a new episode at least once a month. Which is great. And I do think the web community, commenting, sharing, etc. will be cool for a lot of you. Maybe there’ll be T-shirts. I don’t know. I haven’t figured it all out yet.
But, podcast will stay the same. There may be a different promotional message tacked on to the front but the Memory Palace will remain the Memory Palace. The same odd little stories. The same format. The same heart on the same sleeve.
