TheCrashCast Is Back!
In May 2016, I uploaded what I feared was going to be the last episode of my show. 2016, as a whole, totally sucked. It included 20 aggressive Chemo sessions for me in an attempt to stave off a growing Stage 4 Colon Cancer. I decided to suspend my show until I could get remission. Long story short, the doctors say I won't get rid of this stuff, but I don't think they know the person they're dealing with. 😉
I'm happy to report that the drastic change my diet (I've gone to the ketogenic diet) and a host of supplements, along with that awful Chemo, have resulted in an 80% reduction of the cancer "activity" in my body. I'm feeling better than I have in ages! In fact, the doctor has adjusted my prognosis to anywhere between 5 and 9 years now! ( years is the "record" of someone living with my issues, and I intend to blow that record away!
I started TheCrashCast as my attempt to pay back a hobby that's been so good to me. With the more than 35 years I've been playing this game, I've amassed a wealth of knowledge. To be able to share this with those needing the info has been a very satisfying thing in my life. Sometimes the efforts I put into this show have been extensive and time consuming, but it's all been worth it! I've helped lots of folks and have made so many new friends that it's hard to keep up with them all. LoL
Being that I feel really stinkin' good, but for the 4 days during/after Chemo, I have decided that it's time to reboot the show!
As you may recall, TCC had several great co-hosts. When I decided that the show had just become too much for me to maintain, those guys (Tim King, Tim Walker, Chris McElveen) wanted to keep the fun rolling so they started the AngleOfAttack podcast. They've done a fantastic job in that endeavor and offer me a seat anytime I want it, so if you've not listened to it, check it out and you may here me on some of the shows.
The RC community, in my opinion, doesn't offer up enough podcast content. I am always looking for more shows to listen to and I expect that many of you feel the same way. Rather than bringing the guys back to TCC and ending AoA, or me taking over their show (which is something I'm terribly guilty of LoL), I've decided to change the format of my show.
So what changes will TCC do? Well, my plan is to do short, topic-based shows the "old school" way . My aim is a 30 minute show that is pre-recorded, but is not a LIVE show with audience interactive chat - just like we used to do. I will plan to employ the use of the occasional guest host, but most of the time I expect it to be a solo act. This allows me to answer listener questions in a more focused way AND it allows me to do shows whenever I feel like it, and even bank up a few shows so that it's not a weekly, time-slotted "chore". This should allow me to do this when I feel well, but not worry about it when I don't. Of course, the goal is to have a weekly segment for you guys, but that will depend on how well I'm feeling. As time progresses and I finally beat this issue, I may look at going back to a LIVE show, or maybe even a VLOG product - who knows?
So there you have it! I'm feeling much better these days, RC is still in my blood so a "lighter" version of the show continue, and I get to continue to help folks out and make new friends! I expect that I will still get to make the AngleOfAttack show now and then to hang out with the guys on Wednesday nights at 7pm Eastern.
If you have any questions about this sport, by all means email them to me and I'll try to help you out. My email address is in the closing music at the end of each show.
