Trends Like These has decided to stop producing new episodes, with their last episode being released today, Friday, April 24. Here’s a note from hosts Brent Black and Courtney Enlow:
After five years, the Trends Like These podcast is coming to an end. In the spring of 2015, it started out as a goofy weekly recap of what was trending on social media. But the trending topics today look a lot different than they did five years ago. We’ve experienced the campaign and presidency of Trump, the #MeToo movement, and now COVID-19. At a certain point, giving our all to this show has started to butt up against our own self-care. We would rather wind it down now than let the quality drop because of our hearts just not being in it anymore. On the bright side, our 2020 MaxFunDrive episode is an hour of us losing our minds about the movie “Cats,” and we’re releasing it to the public today along with our final episode. By the way, none of the hosts are going anywhere! We’re still on Twitter and working on other projects, so don’t be shy to reach out. Our Trendos will always be our Friendos. We’re so grateful to the audience who has stuck with us through all of this and we want to thank all of you who have listened to us and supported the show. If you learned anything from us, we hope it’s that you should read all of an article before you post it and check the source. Love y’all!
While we will really miss the show and the hosts, we fully support Courtney and Brent in this decision, and we hope you’ll continue to follow them and support their other projects!
