On My Way Back

Let this serve as notice. The Seanachai returns in a big way on October 15th.
Things have been a little hairy over the last year. And now (just as the rest of the world seems to be going to hell) my life is settling down. I’ve been busting my hump doing ad work and I’ve got a small amount of cash set aside. And money equals time to pour into truly creative projects, like The Seanachai.
This time around I’m approaching the podcast in a much more deliberate manner. In other words, I’ve got a plan. I’m still hammering out the details, but I’ll roll the whole thing out for you on the 15th October. And I hope you are/will be excited, because I sure am.
In the immortal words of Raoul Duke, Hunter S. Thompson, the great Gonzo himself,

When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.

Also, the Creamer of the Beast is real. There’s a website for it and everything. There’s even an adorably ominous (or ominously adorable) logo. Join the hunt. Cause I’m in. It’s kind of like searching for a perverse four-leaf clover.

  1. I kept looking at my podcasts on iTunes and saying, “just erase the Seanachai. It’s dead.” Then I’d decide to keep it and wait a little longer. I’m glad I did.

    Let’s see if you still have it.

  2. Excellent! You have NO idea how long I have waited for your return!

    … Actually, you probably know /exactly/ how long I have waited.

    In any case: HUZZAH!

  3. I went to the BBC news website this morning, saw a news story which had the phrase ‘pilotless US drone’ in the lead sentence and was immediately transported in my mind to your story “Yeah, but who’s flying the plane?”. So I thought I’d hop across to your site, grab the link to it, and cross-post (along with the original news article) to my Facebook page. Imagine my delight to discover that my first visit to your site in a looooooooooooooooong time coincides with your announcement that you’re coming back to us soon! Woo hoo!

    Coincidence? Of course 🙂 but still great, nonetheless.

    Welcome back!

  4. Hey Patrick!
    It’s been a long long time, but I’m sure it’s worth the wait.
    I’ve been listening to The Seanachai from the very very beginning and, even though there have been only five episodes in the last year, I loved every single one of them.

    To hear now that there will be many new episodes at a (more or less 😉 ) regular basis — man, I’m excited!

    Keep up the good work and remember that your fans will always be there for you!

  5. Hi Patrick,

    Great to see you’re coming back. Your podcasts always brighten my day, can’t seem to find another one like yours. You truly show how storytelling is a form of art. Glad I kept you in my iTunes 😉

  6. HUZZAH!!!

    Since the early days of podcasting there has been one that stood above, apart and beyond. The Seanachai.

    My podcatcher has had to make do with various and sundry talk, tales and trivialities, but it hasn’t nearly been satisfied. Not well and not often.

    Great news. I’m glad you’re able to do it again.

  7. Welcome Back!!

    On a whim, I checked the site and found the new episode. Hmmmm…was it just a whim or some other force at work? Hopefully, it wasn’t the dark, sinister force of the Creamer of the Beast.

    Anyway, it’s GREAT to hear that you’re coming back. Does this mean more “Succeed in Evil” too? One can only hope.

    Feel free to start back earlier than the 15th. I think we’d be totally OK with that.

  8. Patrick – I’m the girl formerly known as Prioletti from Lynchburg. I turned up a strange screenplay not long ago titled “86 Nickels” and then found this site. In any event, I’m a huge fan of the Seanachai now and I am so glad you’ll be back. Good work, er, words.

  9. Wow, you’ve got all the ‘Picks commenting here. I can only get Icepick to provide feedback (unless you call Daughterpick complaining to me that I don’t appreciate the Twilight books enough).

    Looking forward to it, Patrick.

  10. This is truly good news Patrick.

    Amoung the pioneers in the field along with Mur Lafferty (everyone’s favorite Mur) and that odd crew at Farpoint Media I think it’s safe to say that we’ve all missed your presence in the genre.
