Announcement: Episode 7 coming August 14th
Hey there-- hi, it's Orion, the editor and producer of Transmission Folklore. So, unfortunantly, episdoe seven if going to be delayed by a week. Had some unforeseen technical issues that arose around my very sudden big move, and between Transmission Folklore and Deep Blue Stars, we've had a little bit of a [sarcastic] fun [end sarcasm] management issue that is definitely my fault. Hopefully-- Episode seven will be returning on August 14th and episode eight will be going up on August 21st.  Thank y'all for y'all's patience. I understand that getting these [sarcastic] fun [end sarcasm] announcements aren't exactly the best thing to hear.  We've been trying to update as reguarly as we can, but this has been... quite unforeseen. Again, thank y'all for y'all's patience. Just for the fun of it, here is a blooper from the upcoming episode 7 where my cat decided that she didn't like the fact that I was angry shouting in the closet. Thank you. [cat collar bell jingling] Blooper Transcript: Orion: My standard is that when someone is hurting, you--  Hex: [meows]  Orion: Yes, baby? [opens door]  Hex: [meows] Orion: Yes, baby.  Hex: [meows]  Orion: What, baby?  Hex: [meows indignantly]  Orion: Do you want in?   Hex: [chirps]  Orion: What's up?  Hex: [meows]  Orion: Are you okay?
