200, by Tyler Smith
As I’m sure you’ve noticed by now, David and I just recorded our 200th episode. We had on comedian Jimmy Pardo and his podcast co-host Matt Belknap. They host the popular Never Not Funny, a show that David and I openly credit as inspiring us to start Battleship Pretension in the first place. We were so busy working out the details with Jimmy and Matt, that I completely neglected to realize just how crazy it is that we’ve recorded two hundred of these things.
It’s not very often that I take the time to really contemplate how big a part the podcast has played- and still plays- in my life. It has not only allowed David and I to meet and talk with some of our favorite entertainers and artists, but it has enabled us to communicate with film fans around the world.
For all the complaining that I do on the show about the occasional negative review or e-mail, I seldom acknowledge the overwhelming positivity that we’ve met with through our listeners. We’ve received so much encouragement and so many compliments that I sometimes take it all for granted, opting instead to focus on the insults. As we continue to move forward, my hope is that I am able to remember all the support that you’ve shown us through the years.
Thanks for everything that you’ve given us. It’s been a lot of fun getting to talk with all of you. Our hope is to keep the conversation going for many more years to come!
