So today me and Ashley got into an old fight that we have had many times. One of the few fights that I've ever won with her. Until today. It is about the fate of It's Not My Fault. The original podcast that me and Ashley started years ago.
The podcast means the world to me. It is a reminder of old times, of when everything was simpler and things were more light hearted and fun. To Ashley they are a reminder of the past, something that she no longer cares to think about. In her eyes the past should be wiped clean every few years and we should recreate ourselves. I believe that we should never forget where we come from. We should embrace the past, even if we are no longer that person because it is what made us who we are.
So today the argument got to the point where she said if the Pods aren't erased than she leaves Clean Jeans for good. I said if they are erased than I walk from the pod. It was a stalemate. What do we do and where do we go from here? Neither one of us wanted Clean Jeans to end we just both felt strongly about the past and what to do with it.
I came up with a suggestion, one that fit in with what both of us wanted. I remove them from the website, but not delete them. Sometime this week I will move the Pods to a secure page where you have to pay in order to listen to them. The Pages for It's Not My Fault will stay on here but lead you to the paid page. That way the past isn't open to just anyone but it isn't gone either. In a way we both get what we want.
I thought I'd throw the bonus pods in as well since, well they are bonus pods, not supposed to be tossed in with the normal ones.
So the pricing will be as follows:
$1 an episode of It's Not My Fault or $10 for the whole set.
$3 an episode for the bonus pods.
And through this action Clean Jeans lives on. A new episode is being edited as we speak. Enjoy!
