The Monthly Magpie December 2023

The Monthly Magpie December 2023

Happy Second Friday of December!

I had a small medical emergency right after Thanksgiving, so the Monthly Magpie couldn’t go out. Here we are, catching up on the life and times.

First off, because of life happening, there will be no time to fully round out the Release Day Reviews Revisited. No worries though, I’ll be doing some round-ups at the end of the month. 2023 Revisited will come straight to your email!

I also wanted to mention that I’m starting to work on an addition to my reviews I’m roughly calling “The Bigger Picture”. The regular reviews will still be happening in the same style. When there’s an extra thing to consider about a podcast or topic, I’ll be adding some thoughts. Please let me know your thoughts on the first one in my review of Build A Prince here.

As usual, I’m always looking to know what people want to see. I love writing these reviews, and I want to make sure people are getting something out of them. Let me know if there’s something you want to see, or don’t want to see.

Thank You for Being Here

I'll talk about this more at the end of the month, but I'm impressed with the way Magpie has been going for this being first and foremost a serious hobby. I love podcasts and I want to share them with the world. So, thanks for being a part of this little corner of the internet. If you think you know someone who would like my monthly newsletter, let them know! Word of mouth is the most important.

That's it for now!- Keelin
