Look at the time! It's POSI-VIBES O' CLOCK!
But seriously, Moose and Dews are in a good mood this week. After what has felt like a bit of a lull for the last few weeks, the Primordial world keeps spinning, but in a generally positive direction.
There's all the usual updates on where we're at as a business, but they also get talking about their old friend Sophie K, and a particularly inspirational Twitter thread.
Also, TARTAN! No really, the official Primordial tartan is coming...
It's an odd one this week. Part counselling session, part pep-talk and part business meeting, with just a touch of chatting-in-the-pub. Moose and Dews marvel at the fact they've made it to 98 episodes, and spend some time pondering if they're actually having fun, before realising that's not the important question.
There's also the latest positive membership update (hint: things are going the right way), news of the impending merch drop and talk about the upcoming Primordial Inkquizition.
There's also a fascinating chat with Primordial's Mrs Barkel (Juls) who has a PHENOMENAL success rate with the Everybody Gets One campaign, where she reveals some of the secrets to her success.
So the podcast last week didn't quite go as planned, with an anti-climactic announcement that didn't actually happen. Then it did. Sigh.
Undaunted, Moose and Dews return this week with the ACTUAL announcment of the opening band for the Primordial Radio AGM 2019. It's really rather good.
They also talk about about the all-important membership figures, the changing landscape of the music industry and the importance of remembering to ask for help. Help will always be given at Hogwarts to those who ask for it...
It's a big announcement week for the podcast! Or at least it might be...
Thing is, at the time of recording, the guys were hoping to announce the main support act for the AGM next April, however they hadn't yet heard from the artist in question's management, as to whether it was cool to announce yet. They did it anyway, but had to make two different edits of the podcast; one with the announcement bleeped out, and one not. At the time of writing this podcast blurb, WE DON'T KNOW WHICH ONE IT IS! Exciting stuff, right?
Aside from that announcement (which may or may not happen) Moose and Dews have a catch-up while discussing their recent trip to Newcastle, the upcoming Primordial Inkquizition, and the strange bond between a boy and his couch.
A couple of podcasts ago Moose mentioned he had a couple of crazy ideas that needed a little more thought before he went public with them. He's now put that thought in, so he and Pete get to discussing them this week. One of them is reeeeeaaaaally crazy.
There's also the latest update on where Primordial Radio is as a business, and what we need to do going forward.
Probably because they knew Dews was editing this podcast, it's also the longest one they've ever done.
