We’re back! A lot has changed — both in the industry and with our own freelance worlds — since the Season 1 finale! We’re re-charged and excited to dive back in with this debut episode of Season 2! In this feel-good homecoming we talk about how our freelancing focuses have shifted, how the industry has changed in recent months, what we’ve been up to since Season 1, and how we’re hoping to expand the show this year! We also roll out our handy-dandy little Patreon, as a means to hopefully help cover some of our ongoing costs of keeping the show running!

Who are these freelance guys again? – We offer a quick-n-dirty re-introduction on who we are and why you should listen to anything we have to say on the subject of freelancing! Y’know, in case you’re new to the show or have amnesia.
A trip down memory lane – Where were we at in our careers when we started this newfangled show a year ago?
What the hell is going on in the games industry? – Joystiq closed, some sites went to hell, new gigs have popped up, and more! We offer some info and commentary on how the games freelancing world has changed since we wrapped up Season 1.
What have we been up to lately? – We catch up on what’s been keeping us busy both project-wise and freelance wise in recent months.
Season 2 and our PATREON!
Given that we’ve both expanded in some interesting directions beyond simply games-focused freelancing, we’re hoping to also broaden the focus of topics we cover in Season 2. We’ll still talk a lot about freelancing about games, tech, and geeky stuff, but we also hope to dig into different kinds of freelancing gigs and get to some of the topics we didn’t squeeze in last season.
We also have a new PATREON! It takes a lot of time, and costs a chunk of change, to keep this thing running. If you’ve enjoyed the show and want to help support its continued operation, we’d love it if you’d consider pledging $1 (or more if you’re feeling generous) per (new) episode via our Patreon to help us cover some of our ongoing expenses. It’s basically an ongoing tip jar. We very much appreciate your support, whether you decide to contribute or not!
