@phuturist Brandon is trying to start doing Live Cup of Jones on his Tuesday morning slot. There were apparently technical issues this Tuesday so there wasn't an episode but he said maybe later in the week. Tuesday mornings at 10am PST should be the normal weekly slot for CoJ in the future though!
As for why, I think it is mostly to cut down on the time it normally takes to film and edit the episodes. This also sets aside a dedicated time slot so he can keep more of a schedule instead of sporadic episodes here and there.
