Video Podcast Promo!

September 13, 2021

Hello Everybody,

 

Big announcement! Our goal of making a video component to our podcast is finally coming to fruition!! We recorded a pilot episode with our cousin Jake a couple weeks ago, and we've published a clip from that episode as a promo here

 

We have decided to publish a full episode biweekly going forward, alternating with a video clip (on YouTube) from that episode on the following week. We're both really excited to see where this goes! 

 

The first full episode will be up in a week from now :) We hope you all enjoy it very much! 

 

Happy Tea Drinking,

Noah & Shiuwen
