Whoa, We're Halfway There

Well, here we are, at the end of the second season of WKRP in Cincinnati! We cover "Venus Rising" and "Most Improved Station" this week, the final two episodes of the 24-episode Season 2.

We've done 25 podcasts as of this week. Sure, we've got our Season 2 wrap-up episode at the end of March, but with HMOTD 025 in the books, we've gotten to the halfway point of the podcast. Allow me to take a brief self-indulgent moment to say, "Wow. We did it."

Okay, now that the back-patting is behind us, we're very happy with HMOTD 025 this week. A lot of deep discussion on the issues raised by "Venus Rising": radio automation and affirmative action (and white America's reaction to it), and some good talk about what "Most Improved Station" has to say about workplace conflict resolution and 1970s pop psychology. Along with our usual appreciation of WKRP on its own; these were two funny episodes with a lot of heart.

To paraphrase Col. Kilgore from Apocalypse Now, "someday this podcast's going to end." Let's not think about that too much, it's too sad to contemplate. But our plan is to do what we did at the end of Season 1, and take a hiatus between Season 2 and 3. It's a good thing for us to recharge our batteries a little bit and come back fresh.

And we've got some big plans for Season 3! More live events to promote the show, more great new guest hosts, and Season 3 of WKRP, which definitely has some classics and some episodes we've been anticipating.

More meta to come in the weeks leading up to our Season 2 wrap-up (another reminder: send your Listener Mail questions to!) but for now, we hope you enjoy HMOTD 025 on Wednesday morning!
