If you’re an X10 fan, you’ve probably noticed that today, we didn’t publish a new episode even though, according to our schedule, we were supposed to; this was due to a last-minute change of plans.
Don’t panic; X10 is here to stay. However, Giuliano and I came to the inevitable conclusion that just two people (of whom one, Giuliano, is a full-time researcher) simply can’t pull off a new episode every week without losing far too much sleep and rest, skipping too many dinners, sacrificing too many weekends, and, most importantly, compromising the overall quality of each episode.
We came to this conclusion while working on a script for an episode that was nowhere near being ready and yet was supposed to be filmed the next morning—this was last weekend, to be exact—that’s when we decided that, starting this week, your appointment with X10 is every other Thursday, at noon EST; that’s why this week, there’s no new X10 episode and there’s this brief notice instead. The next episode will be published on July 25.
This change isn’t necessarily permanent; in the future, we might be able to publish new episodes more often again. We’re sorry if this is a bit disappointing, but keep in mind that it means we’ll be able to produce better episodes, both from a content and technical perspective; there are some nice surprises in the cards for this autumn, so cheer up and stay tuned!
