    The End (For Now) of an Era. (Official Hiatus Announcement)

    [Transcription Below]
    Hi everyone, Erin Kyan here.  I’m the creator of Love and Luck, and I’m afraid I come with some sad news.
    COVID19 has had an immense effect on everyone, in so many ways. No one is unaffected, and that includes us.  Fortunately I can reassure you that as of this message, no one in our team has been infected with the disease, but that doesn’t mean that life continues on like always.
    The truth of the matter is that it is logistically impossible to produce Love and Luck at this time.  And it will probably remain that way until we have a vaccine.
    We make Love and Luck as a beautiful group of big queers in lovely big meeting rooms and a lovely big recording studio in a community centre. We can’t do that right now, both from a risk perspective and a legal one - lockdown restrictions in Melbourne are severe and it’s not clear how long it’s going to be until things like community centres are open again.  
    But it’s not just about the restrictions.  Many of us in the team - myself included - are very high risk for complications from COVID19 should we catch it.  And as much as we love making the show, a podcast isn’t worth risking our lives over.
    Unfortunately, we do not have the resources to set up all of our actors with home recording setups.  That’s just not an option for us right now.
    Even aside from all those details - my mental health has not been doing too good lately, and I’ve found writing to be particularly difficult.  While a good chunk of season three’s first draft is already there - about 16,000 words worth - it has been an uphill battle to get even that far.
    So Love and Luck is officially going on hiatus for the foreseeable future.  I hope that we can come back to it and give it one last season at some point in the future - but even if we can’t, this is one of the reasons I write seasons the way I do.  There is no cliffhanger.  If we are unable to come back, I’m happy with where we left things.
    Thank you all so much for listening to our show.  I never thought my little self indulgent project would become so big or so beloved.  You have all had such an incredible effect on me and my life, and I am so grateful to all of you.  
    If you’re wondering what’s next for Passer Vulpes Productions, we are still making shows - we’re just going to move to working on things better suited to remote production.  Supernatural Sexuality with Dr Seabrooke is still ongoing - we are working on season two at the moment, actually - and there will be other podcasts to come from us in future.  Letting Love and Luck go for now means that I can turn that attention and work towards something new.
    If you want to keep up with what we’re doing, you can follow us on twitter at @PasserVulpes, you can check out our website and join our mailing list at passervulpes.com, and you’re welcome to come join our Discord server too.
    Thank you, once again, for listening.  Thank you for your trust, your bravery, and your love.  Thank you for making the magic real.  Wherever life takes you next, I dearly wish you love and luck.

    Announcement: New Shows from Passer Vulpes Productions!

    You've got mail!  It's from Love and Luck showrunner Erin Kyan!
    While we work on Season 3, we thought that you might want to check out the two other fiction podcasts that we make! 
    Supernatural Sexuality with Dr Seabrooke is a fictional sex and romance advice radio show set in a world where monsters are real.  
    Monsters and humans alike call in to noted folklorist, sexologist and relationship therapist Dr Olivia Seabrooke for help in finding ways forward on the issues that spring up in relationships where people’s needs, cultures and bodies are radically different. Much like Love and Luck, It’s for people who want diverse relationships, real advice and ways of thinking about relationships, and happy endings. The first two episode are available now wherever you get your podcasts, as well as on YouTube with captions or via the website, at https://supersexradio.com, where you can also find out more about the show!
    Nym's Nebulous Notions is a science fiction podcast about Conspiracies, Context, and Jumping to Conclusions. The show follows our intrepid conspiracy investigator Nym as she seeks The Truth about a mysterious signal that she's intercepted. This podcast will take you to a mysterious ship abandoned in the dead of space, and then ask you what exactly you expected to find there. Nym's Nebulous Notions is a limited episode show - it's completely finished, which means no worrying about cliff-hangers! You can find the show wherever you get your podcasts, as well as on YouTube with captions, or via the website at https://nymsnotions.com.

    Julie Baxter was written in loving memory of Gail Kerr.
    Love and Luck was recorded at the Kathleen Syme Library and Community Centre, in Carlton, Melbourne.
    We would like to acknowledge that Love and Luck was made on the stolen land of the Kulin Nation. It was primarily produced on the land of the Boonwurrung People, and was recorded on the land of the Wurundjeri People. We pay our respects to Elders past, present, and emerging, and extend that respect to all Indigenous people who are listening. Sovereignty was never ceded. Australia always was, and always will be Aboriginal land.
    With this episode, we have reached the end of season two of Love and Luck.  We hope you’ve enjoyed it.
    We would like to thank all our Kickstarter backers for making this season possible.  We couldn’t have done it without you.

Uplifting Bright Spot

Love & Luck is an uplifting bright spot thats a wonderful example of what can be done with an Audio Drama podcast, building bit-by-bit as the plot progresses. Friendships and romance and community building all leave me feeling like I could do anything if I put my heart into it.
