All right, so it’s pretty much a thing that I’m bringing the show back in 2016. I’ve got some plans for it that I’ll talk more about in the Lost Episode 70 (including this “season” business), but for now I’d like to talk potential guests, both those I’d love to have on and those you’d love to have on.
This all started when I was updating my Pinterest board of show guests over the past couple of days; once I got done with that, I felt the urge to update my board of want-ons for the show, which only had one pin. Now, it’s up to twenty-eight.
Then I went and update my Twitter list of want-ons (and renamed it, because Vickie asked me what a “want-on” was and it sounds more like a meal than a person) and had the bright idea of actually tweeting the lot so as to build a little buzz and hopefully get the attention of some of the folks on the list.
And after collecting Twitter handles, I collected Facebook page names and posted those this morning.
But as these folks also have website, I also want to list them here. So here’s my list of potential guests for 2016/ You’ll notice a few aspirational ones here, but if I can’t shoot for the moon with my own podcast every now and again, where’s the fun?
