Boy, Was I Wrong!

I’ve been telling everyone that Restless Shores has been downloaded in 24 countries. Nope. We did a data dive today. We are in 32 countries and approximately 419 cities. We don’t know about the cities for certain because there are 31 regions that have downloads with no specific city attached to those downloads. For instance,…

You’re Killing Me Smalls

Does anyone remember “Wakko’s 50 State Capitals” song? He listed all fifty states and their capitals to the tune of Turkey in the Straw. Well, we’re getting close and will soon be able to use that song as an indicator of downloads for Restless Shores. We are in all the coastal states except for Mississippi,…

We’re trending in Seoul

Nine months ago, not knowing what would happen, we launched Restless Shores. After all, no one else had attempted an ongoing podcast soap opera. We were the first of our kind. What did happen in that nine months humbles me and takes my breath away. We are in 22 countries besides the U.S.  We have…

WOOT! 5,005

Yep. We just crossed 5,000 downloads. Thank you to all our fans for getting us to this benchmark. My personal thank you to our cast and crew. Well done.

Emily

Last Friday, August 9, I had the opportunity to watch one of Restless Shores’ actresses perform in the The Fenix Theatre Company’s production of the Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Art and Life

Did Jeffrey Epstein take a page from the playbook of a podcast soap opera? We don’t know whether this report is accurate or not, but obviously James B. Steward, Matthew Goldstein and Jessica Silver-Greenberg think it is. They co-wrote an article entitled “Jeffrey Epstein Hoped to Seed Human Race With His DNA.” According to the…

We weren’t preempted by Robert Mueller

General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful, and The Young and the Restless were all preempted on Wednesday because of Robert Mueller. Fans had to wait a day to enjoy the next episodes. Not Restless Shores fans. Our fans can still download and listen to any episode at any time in any order they want…

A dirty little secret for a new generation

It seduces us irrespective of gender, age, education, nationalities, social levels, or religion. We are captivated as we find the guilty pleasure penetrating deeper and deeper into our psyche. Regardless of what we tell ourselves, we can’t escape the ecstasy of expectation this purely voyeuristic pursuit brings. Generations have grown up without first-hand knowledge of…
