I've had one hundred consecutive lunches. That's that's never meal but no yeah. This you know something like this. It's it's it's tough to be consistent. It is but Meant this past year and change has been awesome. I've had an opportunity to talk with knife. Heroes and just people have always wanted to meet people. I've been watching on Youtube. People whose lives have been buying and or or just drooling over are wanting to buy. Yeah wanting to buy The the funny thing is I don't know if I set this up subconsciously as justification for future purchases but it seems everyone. I talked to On the podcast after I hang up with him and the interviews done. I'm like manic. GotTa get one of their knives. I gotTA figure out how to get one of their and I would say maybe I've made that come to pass. Maybe fifty percent of the time road right. Well the little tip then for knife makers out there. If you haven't yet been on the pont cash you may WanNa get on if you want to sell the Nashville here but yeah. The podcast started November fifth two thousand eighteen. It used to be weekly We were You were interviewing a knife makers reviewers manufacturers all that and there was just so much information to try to get into the to the our show. We typically try to keep it at an hour There was other things you want to get into so we added the mid week supplement. Yeah well it's very generous the way you say there's so much information of Never. I think really what it is and it comes down to a verb. We've used a lot. Here is bloviating to bloviate ten To talk at length about subject and You know sometimes you just like to get going about that new life you have coming in or You know I like to rattle off the knife drops as I see them on knife news in life magazine and those were not really fitting in well with the interview show. I have a feeling just as a podcast consumer myself that when I when I'm tuning in to hear an interview with say Ernest Emerson. I don't want to hear Bob DeMarco talking about his new knife. I just want hear about Ernest I wanNA hear Ernest Emerson in his own words so So we broke it out into that supplemental show that we put out on Wednesdays and the thing I love about that show his that. It's totally free form some days. It's just NYPD drops other days. We do a first tool. You know where where I talk about the history of a certain desired or something. And that's just a an investigation. I I know academic let me put it that way. It's just out of personal interest. I I kind of look like the Chris. Recently you know Cold Steel has come out with two fold increases and that's an unusual blade in the difficult one to make probably difficult to mass produce and it. It made me interested in what the actual history was of it. I had a few facts kind of rattling loosely around the brain about it looked into it and then got a first to a lot of it. So I I like those I like the supplemental because it's just an opportunity to sort of free form Talk about knives like I just did right. Sixty seconds well and you know it was kind of an experiment and you know. I think we're both pleasantly pleased and surprised by the the number of listeners. That the the mid week show gets and the folks like it you know. I almost equally as much as the interview show so I you know we will continue doing the mid week and always welcome of course feedback suggestions. Things that people would like to see but good opportunity to Do some extra knife talking which I know you and The more folks in the knife world that I've come to know Enjoy talking about knives and it's not just to hear themselves talk. It's to really talk about the knives.
