No TSP Today, We Will Return Tomorrow

Two things are important to me at TSP above all else.

1.  Put a the show with the expected frequency of 5 days a week whenever possible.

2.  Make sure that TSP is a top quality production, that educates, entertains and informs.

Today I could pull off number one, but not number two.  I have managed to get some type of cold or flu that is just kicking my ass.  I did the first two segments of today’s show and they are simply not up to my standards.  We shall return tomorrow.  If you want your TSP Fix here are a couple suggestion from the archives.

I know an old show isn’t the same as a new one but we all have to know our limits.  I am okay with having some timing issues or some hoarseness in a show from time to time, but if quality is really going to suffer I can’t allow that.

I will be back tomorrow with a new show, count on it.

    I have been fighting it to. You have my prayers. Hope you are back to top form soon. Even though we have never met, you are like part of my family. I look forward to new information from the podcast but also still enjoy listening to old shows. I pick up things I missed before. Get well soon.

  7. No worries, I thin there are a few shows we can go back to, Jack. Get well, we are pullin’ for you.

  8. Jack, I hope you feel better soon! Better give Western Botanicals a call 🙂

  9. Just got over a 3 week stint of the ‘Crud’ a couple weeks ago. Take care of yourself bubba. We can survive without one show, and for you it is important to rest and get better.

  10. Best wishes to Jack & Oldcountryboy. Hope you both feel better soon.

  11. Get well. I’ll check out the silver show since I just started listening in Feb.

    Is there a way to put a rating system on the shows? Then people can see what the audience as a whole likes? Might be a neat way to search for older shows.

  12. Sorry to hear that you are under the weather Jack. Advice from my Grandmother for cold and flu:

    Honey, Lemon, and Whiskey

    I don’t know if it actually works or not, but as a kid I know that I didn’t care if I was sick or not anymore after a few of Grandma’s “treatments”.

  13. Get well soon buddy!

  14. oops breaking out the herbs? I think stress caught up with you. Virus natures way of saying slow your ass down? LOL feel better soon.

  19. Well Jack if your voice is really creepy and cruddy sounding might be a good time to do some goulish voices for the second Halloween show .Get well soon.

  20. Jack,

    Rest the pipes. You do a great job. My podcasts are 1-2 times a week and with teaching, my voice is often shot.

    I mentioned for show 1,000 the difference you made in my life. Thanks to you, Jack, I have my own blog, podcast, and voice in the media. You rock!!!

    We’ll just listen to older shows.

    As for rating of the shows, there is a section in the forum for “the best of TSP” or someting similar.

    Here it is:
