As I recorded my end-of-the-week news wrap-up podcast, the news networks called the 2020 US Presidential Election for Joe Biden.
It should have impacted the recording since the cut off of news was the previous day, but it did change how I ad to approach the recording.
This is not a unique situation. Since the only time I have to record is Saturday afternoon but the best time to prepare the data is Friday morning, there are plenty of news stories that happen with the day between that can pop up as even more important at the moment, even if the point of the podcast is to offer up a snapshot of what has already transpired.
It can be hard to play to your original game plan when new data is presented.
