Howdy, hello, and good evening. My name is Spencer Foust, and I’ve been your guided tour throughout some of the weirdest stories in World History. I must admit, this will be my last post on the blog. Don’t worry, though, because this isn’t the end of the project.
I started this blog because I had to. I took a news writing class that insisted we make a blog about whatever we wanted, should we feel qualified to talk about it. Having sat on this idea for a while, I thought about using this assignment as a platform to explore it. I was even happier when I told my brother about the idea of trying one episode of it for a podcast, and he said “just one?” Now, I can honestly say that this little assignment has led to one of my proudest accomplishments.
Sure, as I write this, there are only three episodes that are published. They’re set to auto-release, though, and as I write this there are three more already set to upload for the last few weeks of 2017. While I don’t intend to continue this blog, I can’t see any reason to stop doing the podcast. We currently reach about 10 people per week, and while that might seem small, that’s a huge audience for something that I do strictly because I love to do it. For those of you who may have been referred back here, or who have actually read the posts that came before this, I hope you stick around to listen to the show each week. It’s not much, but it’s mine. And I couldn’t be happier to do it.
