I am not much for keeping on set schedules. However, I will need to try and do better. Here on the blog, I am trying to commit to three posts per week — and have done a somewhat adequate job of doing so. Thankfully, I have found that taking my writing prompts from some of the books I am reading is quite helpful for finding topics to write about. So I will hopefully manage to keep that time schedule with the blog here.
The podcast is a little more problematic. My desire was to focus on interviews with other folks – to showcase what they believe. However, one of the more difficult things with doing that is finding time that meshes with my personal and professional schedule (which changes from semester to semester) and that of the individuals I would love to put on to the podcast. So, I will bring back a little bit of “From the Edge of the Circle” – where I discuss some topics from my own perspective. And I will attempt to get the podcast out once per month – twice per month when I manage to mesh time with an interviewee. I discussed this a bit with a few friends…and the mention was made to bring “Edge” back out of the grave. And it is certainly a thought with some merit. Edge still garners downloads, even though I have put the podcast into sunset mode.
So if I did look at bringing Edge of the Circle back into existence…I would need to make a few more changes to what I have been doing with it previously. Obviously, I would need to add interviews to the entire show format. There would still be a “Spoken Word” segment, the “Musical Feature” segment, but am wondering what else could (or should) be added to it?? Obviously, I would need to rework the Opening and Closing themes for the show – that’s not difficult. And I could work up Opening themes for each of the segments. But would the podcast need anything more?? Or should the podcast be brought back to Life?? Perhaps with a change in the name? Removing the “From” at the beginning of the title, perhaps?? Definitely a few things to ponder….and really, I could always use the input from folks out there too. After all, I put the podcast out to give back to my Pagan community – which means input from ya’ll is always a nice thing to have….
Just a thought…at the moment….

Oh I don’t know. I think Upon A Pagan Path works as a title whether the reflections shared are your own or that of others.
I agree with Troy. You could simply say at the start of an episode that you will be sharing views from your own path, rather than someone else’s.
I get what you both are saying…The idea of changing back to Edge of the Circle was that its a much more “known” entity than Upon A Pagan Path is. But then, I also realize a lot of that is due to the fact that I do not advertise myself…and I’m terrible at doing so…and then there’s the “on-schedule” thing that I need to really get past…and get the podcast on a particular pattern that folks can rely on…. ::sigh:: If I only did the podcast with as much regularity as I write and blog…LOL
