1 minutes | May 29, 2020
Thomas just launched the Denimhunters Podcast
We're taking a break with the Denim & Boots Podcast. In the meantime, Thomas has launched his own podcast, which is simply called the Denimhunters Podcast. You can subscribe and listen to it here: Apple Podcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/podcast/id1515082550 Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/6yIfJzu9FBa7PhpqQq7cD4 Q: So what's happening to the Denim & Boots Podcast? A: It's not going anywhere. But, for the time being, there won't be new episodes published. Q: So, does that mean the won't be any more episodes from the Denim & Boots Podcast? A: We don’t know. Honestly, the reason we're taking a break comes down to busy schedules and 9 hours between us, which makes recording increasingly challenging. Q: Will Jake continue to run the Denim & Boots Podcast on his own then? A: No, the Denim & Boots Podcast is, and will continue to be, a collaborative project between Jake and Thomas. Since the beginning, it's been produced by Thomas.
