Well, I’ve been delaying this announcement for a while, but I suppose it’s finally time to break the news. Due to a number of reasons, I’m sad to announce the end my online talk show, Sex Brains & Money. It’s been something that’s been on my mind for a while now, but after a very difficult summer, I’ve made the decision not to come back this fall, and to put the show on an indefinite hiatus. There’s always a chance I might re-launch the show at a future date, but right now, I don’t have any plans for any new episodes, and with a number of upcoming changes on the horizon, it’s probably best that I focus on other things for now.
But it’s not all bad news! Those “other things” I mentioned above? They include the new-and-improved version of TalkingSports.TV, with my co-hosts Marty York & Josh Rimer! We’re debuting at our new venue in Woodbridge on Tuesday, October 1st, so come by Charley Fitzwhiskey’s if you’d like to check out the first episode of our fall season! We’ll be doing an NHL preview to launch the 2013-2014 season, and we’ll have guest interviews with people like Wayne Gretzky, Pat Quinn, Bill Watters, and on our Wednesday show, John Leclair and Darryl Sittler! I’m very excited to talk some sports with the guys, and watch the Leafs Season Opener at the bar with a whole bunch of Leafs fans!
Also, after our successful Autism Art Auction last April (which was also the final episode of Sex Brains & Money, though we didn’t know it at the time) the McIntosh Family and I have decided to take our efforts to the next level, and we’ll be launching the Art For Autsim Project in early October. We’ll still be holding the Autism Art Auction next April, albeit at a different venue and on a much larger scale, and we’ll also be expanding our scope to other areas: we’ll be holding benefit concerts, improv nights, and providing other opportunities for people with autism to show off their artisitic talents while raising funds for our Autism Crisis Centre. It’s a cause that’s very close to my own heart, and I’m happy to be putting my efforts towards something I truly believe in.
Lastly, I’m working on one more project that I can’t tell you about just yet, due to its top-secret nature… But I promise you, it’ll be my most risque, titillating project yet! Stay tuned for more details… 😉
Anyways, thank you so much to all the people who have helped make Sex Brains & Money so much fun – the people who joined me for interviews, the production team of David Grossman and Lior Khananev, and the people at the AllTalkTV.com Network who were such a joy to work with. And, of course, all the people who tuned in to watch the different segments and offered feedback on how to make things better. I’ve had a great time doing this and I’m excited for what the future holds! Thanks again. 🙂
