I'd like to be able to tell you I'll be podcasting again in the near future, but I can't. Handling my parents' complicated, untidy estate (two trusts, not everything in the trusts, DC estate taxes, etc., etc.) will take at least through the end of the year, probably longer. I literally can't afford to mess up. Nor do I want to churn out podcasts that don't have a lot of thought behind them. Between the two there's no practical compromise: the podcast has to be put on hold for the time being. Sorry.
