The Memory Palace has left the Maximum Fun network.
It’s not much of a story. The Memory Palace was always a bit of an outlier within the network, in terms of tone, which made it hard to find the sorts of cross-promotional opportunities that exist within other networks. There are some other, equally boring reasons, but none of them were personal. From top to bottom, the folks at Max Fun are the best. Extraordinarily nice. Walk the walk. The real deal. It’s just time to see what else is out there.
So. A FAQ:
I’m a Maximum Fun subscriber. Does this mean you won’t be getting any of my Maximum Contribution?
Yes. But: I strongly encourage you to continue to subscribe to and support Max Fun because, quite simply, you’d be hard pressed to find a more righteous, for-profit company anywhere. They have a vision for supporting creative professionals that is 100% worth supporting. Throw in the fact that the work they produce is also top notch, and I’ll tell you straight: you should support Max Fun. You should continue to subscribe. I do.
Does this mean The Memory Palace is done?
Nope. There are more episodes on the way.
Like, how many more?
Many. The Memory Palace will be a full-time proposition starting this summer. Just how frequently it’ll be produced is TBD, but it’s going to be a huge difference from the way things have worked up till now. I’m currently figuring out the schedule, trying to sort out how I’ll need to change the way I work so I can get more pieces out into the world without sacrificing the things that I think make the podcast itself work.
Are you joining another network?
Dude, I don’t know. I’m just figuring it out now. Right now, I’m a free agent.
Ok, whatever. Bottom line: what’s in it for me?
Do you like the Memory Palace?
Yeah. I mean, pretty much. It’s cool.
No matter how any of this shakes out, I’m committed to making more episodes. So, if you like the podcast, you should like that. Maybe there’ll be an ad up front. Maybe there’ll be a new network. But it’ll be the same show.
What if I want to give you money in the meantime?
Then you’re amazing. Then you’re incredibly kind. You can donate with the tip jar button on the site. I’ll send you a thank you postcard.
When will we hear about future plans?
Soon? When I get them figured out. If you’d like to be kept abreast of such things, you can follow me on Twitter, @thememorypalace or on Facebook. Or check this space.
Will I need to change my feed or resubscribe?
No. Everything will work as normal.
