Hello! Raven here again, to apologise once more for the podcast delays. We’ve had some tech issues, which are sadly apparent in places in this podcast (Dove’s audio cuts out a few times). Hopefully, for our next published podcast, and certainly for our next recording session, we should have some upgraded equipment to mitigate these annoyances.

We fully intend to get back to a weekly publishing schedule soon. Thanks for your continued patience, and enjoy the show!

Hello! Raven here. Yeah, I know. It’s been a while.

Here at The Bookshelf Birdhouse, Dove, Wing and I – alongside our other feathered associates – have been recapping up a storm, and recording podcasts like there’s no tomorrow. The raw data for around five Sweet Valley Twins podcasts is currently sat in the Nostalgic Bookshelf Vault, ready for loving post-production and publication.

That all-important, time-consuming step? That’s down to me. And, bluntly, I suck at it.

It’s laborious. It demands total concentration and no background Netflix. It’s technically specific. And it’s outside my wheelhouse.

I struggle through, of course, bogged down, flailing and flapping like a cormorant in an oil slick. I get there. But the constant weekly deadlines give me little time to improve the process, no opportunity to learn a better way. And if there’s a technical issue… it’s horrible.

For the last few casts, we’ve had some syncing issues with Dove’s recordings. There are tiny skips and drops in her audio, which elongate the process almost exponentially.

Truthfully? It all got a bit much for me. I needed a break. So I took one. For a lot longer than I intended.

It took a while to get back onto the horse, but I’ve eventually saddled up, and I’m good to ride. So we’re back, and plan to start publishing podcasts weekly once again. Yay!

I’m currently looking into cool ways to make the job easier. As I’m entirely self-taught, I’m presuming that my current process is horrifically flabby, and the Good Folk of the Internet will have cool ideas and optimisations to make the tasks deft, agile and fun once more.

I hope you enjoy this podcast. The next will be with you sometime next week. There may be a few schedule blips in the coming few weeks, while I smooth everything out, but with good will and a favourable wind we’ll be back to full speed soon.

Cheers all!

Raven (and Dove and Wing)

This pattern rotates for three weeks, then we have a week away from Sweet Valley to explore other Nostalgic Bookshelf content. Next week we have Jessica’s Secret, the week after we have Elizabeth’s First Kiss, and the week after that… stay tuned to find out!]
