Jolyn and I are ecstatic to make the biggest announcement on Stranger since Tami.

No, we aren't getting married. We don't think the world is ready to come to an end.

Jolyn and I decided that 2016 was going to be the year we finally did something we've been wanting to do for a while. We've started a podcast. And we are super thrilled with it.

Let me be clear: I, Eli Winterberrymille McCann, have no business using Internets or technology. But y'all, I have spent eleventy hundred hours in the last two months learning how to use recording equipment, sound editing software, and learning about things that I didn't even know existed. And let me just tell you, podcasting is the most complicated thing I have ever tried to undertake. AND I FREAKING WENT TO LAW SCHOOL.

And so, with excitement so big you can see it from space, we bring you:

Jolyn and I have completed our first episode of Strangerville and we are really happy with how it turned out. When we sat down a couple of months ago to talk about what we wanted Strangerville to be, we had a come-to-Jesus with one another wherein we vowed not to release yet another podcast to the universe in which two people ramble for one hour about nothing. We are devoted to presenting thoughtful and interesting stories from around the world that will not waste your time. And, although we are still novices at sound editing, we are very happy with how the first episode has turned out.

A few facts about this episode:

1. I wrote and performed the music for it (OMG ELI YOU'RE SO TALENTED! Stop you guys!)

2. We captured stories from four awesome people for this first episode.

3. Jolyn threatened to enter the witness protection program as I had near nervous breakdowns putting this together.

4. My foot disease is back. (This fact isn't really related to the episode, but I thought you might like to know it anyway).

I hope you'll take a listen and enjoy it. AND, I would like to ask you for a favor. Please help us spread the word from Strangerville. If I did things correctly (don't bet on this) you should be able to subscribe to Strangerville on the iTunes here. Or just search for it in iTunes or your Podcast app.

We have more great content coming your way and we are so excited to see where this can go. As has been the case with Stranger over the last four years, Strangerville will be enhanced and made more valuable through your amazing support and participation. So PLEASE share this with others on social media, family news letters, bathroom mirrors, etc. Let's get the word out there.

And so, without further ado:
