Possible Hiatus or Closure

Published: May 25, 2021, 4 p.m.
Duration: 3 minutes 28 seconds

Hello, my sweet pumpkin seeds. This is a message I was really hoping to never have to make. As of right now The Joy of Horror Podcast is taking a temp hiatus (for an undisclosed amount of time) or is sadly closing its doors. I tried my best to explain why in this recorded message, but I know I'm not the best at getting my thoughts out.  I don't want this to be forever and I hope to return soon. Depression is a pain is the short version. I love all of you and please try and take care of yourselves.
