We have an announcement to make - our live show in London on November 6th is going to be the final episode of Sequel Pitch.
It's a decision that we've made for all of our mental well-beings; we have so much fun recording the show, but finding the time to watch the movies, come up with the pitches, record, edit etc, when we've all got varying amounts of pressure around jobs, children and mental health issues to deal with, we all want to put the show to bed while we're still enjoying it.
This podcast is something we're all extremely proud of. We love the idea, we've built a load of fantastic friendships in the movie critic and podcasting industries, let alone how much it's strengthened our own, we've had some dream guests we wouldn't have expected in our wildest dreams, AND we've had the immense privilege of knowing (because people have told us this, honest!) That we've made something that brings them joy.
So if you've listened to us, told someone else to, supported us, or frankly just tolerated us, we are incredibly grateful. Thank you so much.
And you never know, this might not be the end! There might be a film that we just can't bear not to do an episode on, or we might open the feed up for other people to come on and take it over. We might all just restart it ourselves in a year or two when we're not having such a rough time existing as elder millennials under late stage capitalism and a tory government! So if our RSS feed or format are of interest to you, get in touch, we'll be hanging on to our socials :)
So that's us - if you can make it to London on the 6th we are hoping that it can be a big lovely send of, and celebration of the friends we've made along the way.
As always, our eternal thanks to Captivate for providing our hosting for the show. They are the absolute best and we love them, and if you're serious about starting a podcast and trying to make it into something, they should be your first port of call
