Fantastic... Now where's the rest?

Something True is a really strong podcast. The writing and narraration are top notch and the stories themselves are brilliant. My personal favorite is "Babylon" but every single episode is both entertaining and fascinating. And by "every single.." I mean 8 episodes plus a Holiday Special bonus episode. So on that point, what gives? Where is season 2? What is the status and what can the now devoted listeners expect next? Google searches have revealed very little.
