The Season 4 premiere of The TV Source Podcast is finally here! The episode “2.0” marks our first official episode since December 2019, and we’re ready to show you what you can expect from our revamped and relaunched podcast.
Welcome to the New Season of The TV Source Podcast
Greetings, Listeners! On behalf of the TV Source Podcast team, I want to thank you all for letting us into your spaces for the past 3 seasons. This podcast is so near and dear to our hearts and was a labor of love.
It’s *the* flagship podcast for our outlet, carrying the name and representing the brand we worked tirelessly to build over the years. So, it goes without saying, it takes a lot of work to put these shows together. At the conclusion of our Season 3 finale in 2019, we took an extended hiatus. What was once a passion project began feeling more like an albatross. Simply put, we weren’t having fun anymore. Couple that with personal losses due to COVID, returning to podcasting was the last thing on our minds. But it’s true that absence can make the heart grow fonder, and as we began discussing dipping our toes back into the water for the two Days of our Lives specials, we hosted in late 2021, we realized we still had that spark and passion for podcast. It was then we began reimagining what this show could be.
As we embark on the beginning of our fourth season, we are kicking off TV Source Podcast 2.0! Soap operas will continue to be a part of our format, but we are going to incorporate primetime, pop culture and other entertainment features into our program – including incorporating interviews into our program.
We hope you will stick with us as we embark on this evolution and growth, while we continue to deliver the can’t miss content you’ve come to love. That said, let’s get started!
