State of the Podcast Address 5th August 2017

Welcome to the WDF newsroom!

Here we have a very informative episode which aims to bring you guys up to speed on some very exciting news. We are making better use of the Facebook page, and plan to build up a regular schedule of posts over the week to keep our FB followers entertained, so don't miss out! Also make sure you check out the Twitter @wdfpodcast where we'll be making polls and reaching out to all interested history friends. WDF THINKS is incoming, and gives you guys the chance to have a say in what we'll cover in WDF. Stay tuned for more information, but it promises to be a great opportunity to break off from our usual programming to explore some new topics. Keep an eye on the blog as well, go to www.wdfpodcast.com/thevassalstate to read our weekly articles, released every Wednesday for your reading pleasure!

Of course we must also talk about how changes are coming to the Patrons of this podcast. From 4th September 2017, $2 Patrons will be able to access the AXESS feed, which will give you early listening privileges, ad and BEFIT free episodes and the chance to binge on groups of episodes as they're released in a block. We're giving all history friends a choice - if you wanted to support but didn't think you'd have time to justify the XTRA feed's content, now there's a great alternative for you guys to enjoy.

Finally, the other purpose of this episode was to explain what's to come in WDF's schedule. If you're interested, and not afraid of spoilers, make sure you stick around for the last third or so of the episode, where from 27:00 we'll be enlightening you guys on what's to come in WDF, effectively for the next two+ years. Any comments, questions or queries etc., you all know where to find me! A small reminder to check out the Patreon page of course - www.patreon.com/WhenDiplomacyFails

Thanksssssss!
