Shawn Today: A Members-Only Broadcast
Shawn Today is a daily broadcast just to the members of shawnblanc.net. It’s fun, short, raw, and behind-the-scenes-ish.
On Shawn Today I talk about things such as: what I’m working on that day, what coffee is being brewed, what news has interested me, and, most importantly, what ideas are churning in my mind.
A lot of the show’s content is either the early stages of what ends up being written on shawnblanc.net or the commentary for what has already been written. If shawnblanc.net were a DVD, Shawn Today would be that second disc with “The Making Of” and “The Director’s Commentary”.
