And, after a very long day of editing and mixing, we are in just under the wire! Episode 32, Controlled Demolition, is now live! Visit our Season 3 page to listen to the latest from the Hephaestus.
As the SI-5 tightens its grip on the Hephaestus, Colonel Kepler decides to run a comprehensive job review. Each faced with unique challenges, Eiffel, Minkowski, Lovelace, and Hilbert all struggle to prove their worth, preserve their autonomy, and stay ahead of the new management. Plus, mind-numbing drudgery, the Twilight Zone, Kung-Fu Chess, Geppetto, and very official clipboards.
This episode was written and directed by Gabriel Urbina.
The past four weeks have been absolutely amazing. Not only did we hit our 100th five-star review on our iTunes page, we also launched our Patreon campaign to a more overwhelming degree of success and support than anything we could have dared hope for. If you enjoy the show and want to help us make more episodes, and more bonus material and extras, please consider signing up for a monthly donation! We have some pretty cool rewards, and every bit counts.
Stay tuned… we’ve got a Shachat original coming in two weeks, and you’re not gonna want to miss that one.
Just a quick PSA about the release of Episode 32. We’ve had to shuffle around some recording times, and we’re not going to be able to lay track for the last scene we need until tomorrow night. Rest assured that we’ll be going straight from the studio to the editing bay, but realistically it may take us more than a few hours to integrate the new material with the rest of the episode.
SO - Episode 32 will be released on Monday April 11th - just note that it’s our usual policy distinction of on Monday, not by Monday. In other words, expect it to be released before Monday becomes Tuesday, not around the start of the 11th. If you find that the idea of checking in periodically throughout the day for updates fills you with anxiety, please go into Monday under the assumption that the episode will be released at 9:00 PM EDT on the 11th.
Thank you all for your tremendous understanding and patience as we work out the kinks of recording with a larger cast.
