Episode Delayed till Next Week

Hello to all followers of the History of Islam podcast! Unfortunately this week's episode will have to be delayed until next week due to issues in the production process. Hopefully this won't happen again, I could have forced out an episode but it would have been incredibly rushed and the quality would be almost certainly sub-par. Essentially it is an issue of quantity vs quality and I hope you all are in support of my decision to favour quality over quantity. What I definitely do not want to do is to just publish an episode for the sake of doing so, my ultimate goal is for every second of every episode to be valuable to the listener whether it be as an informative or entertaining device. Please bear with me in these coming weeks, I promise that we will eventually return to a smoother, more reliable schedule.

That is all from me for now, I will see you next Monday which is the 3rd of October till then take care of yourselves!
