TSW Relaunch Update

Hey, Howdy and Hello There! Rob here. I wanted to give you an update on the current status of the Talk Star Wars Podcast in the wake of the current situation regarding COVID-19. On the subject, I hope that everyone is being safe and that everyone is in good spirits as much as can be expected. I had planned, all being well, to relaunch the podcast on Monday (or at worst April 6th, given some of the chaos that has affected my professional and personal life since the virus led to the weird world we're seeing now), with the first season being "The Mando-Lore-Rerun", our take on the newly released (for us at least) Mandalorian series on the finally accessible Disney + in the UK! You know what they say about the best laid plans... Unfortunately, a complication has arisen in my family situation which means that I cannot logistically do the recordings necessary to get the show up and running anytime soon, and with no end date in sight for these restrictions the possibility of in-person recordings is still off the table. If your mind has jumped to the worst, rest assured that everyone is fine at the moment, but it has led to me reevaluating the reality of the situation here. Family is incredibly important to me, and I'm sure everyone can relate to that. Regrettably, with that said, I have no choice but to postpone the relaunch of Talk Star Wars until further notice. I realise that this will be disappointing for many of you, but I hope that you can understand that at this time of uncertainty, I have to prioritise the safety and wellbeing of those closest to me. If there is more information to share, I will be forthcoming with it, as I value transparency above all else when it comes to dealing with the TSW and Emotionally14 community over the years. I hope that you can appreciate my reasons for taking this decision, and that you know that I do not take decisions of this magnitude lightly by any means. While I'm sure many of you will be disappointed, I ask for your understanding and patience while this weird and uncertain situation resolves itself. Once things have calmed down and we have a better handle on the future, I will prioritise the relaunch of TSW as my number one priority as far as projects and the like go. Thanks for reading, and I encourage you to contact me via the usual channels if you have questions or concerns regarding this situation. Cheers, Rob
