In 2019 I launched the Heart Containers podcast, a 3-day a week broadcast dedicated to sharing the latest Nintendo news. It was a wild learning experience, but after 49 episodes (one that was recorded live from E3 by the way!), I decided to place the show into a state of hibernation for the time being.

Although I enjoy recording the podcast, the reality of the situation is that I am balancing content creation in my free time while still maintaining a full-time job. This means I need to be selective about the types of content that I make, and juggling the Heart Containers podcast along with the written blog (among other things) was too demanding of an ask. I hope to one day find the time in my schedule to jump back into the podcast game, but for now, there are no current plans for the future of the Heart Containers podcast.
