Hi! First, thank you for your hard work. I only came to listen to The Bright Sessions last week and I already love it and am deeply invested in it. I was also thrilled about your mentioning Alice Isn't Dead, one of my favourites. And it's a smart thought to include warnings now. I remeber listening to one certain episode of Alice Isn't Dead and being thankful for the warning beforehand.
Thank you so much!! The reaction to that reference has surprised me - I put it in just for myself because I love Night Vale Presents and they’re a big part of why we exist and I sort of expected it to mostly sail by unnoticed. But of course podcast listeners listen to everything and are extremely passionate people, so I’ve adored getting so many messages calling that ref out specifically.
And, just for the purpose of clarity and so no one has the wrong expectation, we are not including warnings across the board for every episode. If I remember correctly, I don’t think Alice uses them every episode, and I don’t think we will either moving forward. We’ll of course use them when we deem it appropriate but for future episodes that fall in line with the content of the bulk of our Seasons 1 and 2 episodes, we won’t be using them. I just don’t want anyone assuming that because there’s no warning it’s all rainbows and sunshine because it may not be!
