A question to all you listeners.  With the holidays coming up, we’ve been considering whether or not to go on a holiday break or something.  So I thought I’d put up a poll to ask people what they would prefer us to do over the holidays (provided we get to them 😛 ).  The fact is that I realize that some people might be too busy traveling or visiting family to listen regularly during that time, so I came up with a few ideas.

  • Keep doing regular episodes and just hope people catch up later.
  • Record some shorter episodes on little topics like how to handle weather verbs and such.
  • Take clips from previous shows to make one or two “best of” clip shows.
  • Use some extra material I have recorded (some cut from episode #13, and others recorded before/after the show) for an “outtake show”.
  • Produce no shows at all, so people don’t feel like they’re getting behind.
Oh, and on an unrelated note.  Keep sending me translations of our tagline “Welcome to Conlangery, the podcast about constructed languages and the people who create them.” and remember, recordings will take precedence over IPA transcriptions.

What should we do over the holidays?

  • More regular episodes! (49%, 35 Votes)
  • Mini-topic episodes! (30%, 21 Votes)
  • Outtake show! (13%, 9 Votes)
  • Clip show! (4%, 3 Votes)
  • Nothing! I'm too busy to listen during that time (4%, 3 Votes)

Total Voters: 55

    I voted the way I did (Regular & Mini episodes) both because I feel that way, and because there was no “Whatever the three of you (who actually *do* the Podcast) wish to do” option.

    Holidays? What holidays? Yule is like two months away!

    But anyway, do whatever you feel like. Just don’t burn yourselves out.

      Yes, but we have to do episodes ahead of time so that when we’re busy doing family/fun/crazy stuff you can still get your podcasts.

    Another thing I’d like to learn about is sound changes.
    I have not mastered the notation for describing them.
    I also don’t know what the “rules” are for pull-chains and push-chains.
    There’s probably a lot of other stuff I don’t know about them.
    Since sound-changes seem to be the driver of most diachronics (are they?), that means I don’t understand diachronics, either.
    Any show that would help me with the stuff I’ve mentioned in this paragraph, would be very welcome by me.
