State of the Dorks

Hey, internet friends! Stephen here.

I haven’t shared much on this side in a long time. So much of our content is coming in audio form, or through posts on social media that I often forget we have a place for long form content should ever need it. I feel like it’s worth posting a thing here every once in a while so we have some sort of online presence that’s not a podcast, YouTube video, or Twitch stream.

I could not be more proud of this community and who we are as a group. When we first put together Horseshoes and Hand grenades over 15 years ago, I never would have guessed that it would last like it has, but more importantly that it would bring me together with people that I get to call “friend.” So many I only see in person once a year but I feel like we know each other and have had opportunities to bond regardless of our geographical location

We’ve been seeing a lot of success with Those Were the Days lately and I’m super proud of how it came together and continues to be a strong podcast as the episodes go on. I’ve been introduced to things I never even knew about until I brought my love of classic TV together with my good friends TVsTravis, Audie Norman, and Amy Frost. It’s been such a blast to work together and its one of the things I look forward to every week.

Horseshoes & Hand Grenades took a hiatus for a bit after the newest member of our 2Dorks family came along, but Ashley and I are officially working hard to bring back a consistent and entertaining show to the masses. It’s harder than you’d think to balance the needs of a tiny human and our needs as narcissistic podcasters. We’re doing everything we can to bring back the laughs and tomfoolery on a weekly basis for you.

I’m excited about what we’re doing now and a few other irons in the fire that we’ve been thinking about for some time. I want to make more content and there are some doors open that will allow us to do that without sacrificing much in terms of that much needed rest and family time.

I hope you all are in good places and I look forward to more great work and good laughs being done as the year goes on. If you can make it, we’ll see you all at Dragon Con 2024!
