In the spirit of Nada Surf, I'm not going to make this "a flowery, emotional speech"...not here at least. But I did want to take a second and post something for the listeners of Age of Geek podcast. For nearly a decade I've kept this thing alive, sometimes at breakneck speed, sometimes barely a trickle. But I've kept it going. I've decided that "keeping it going" isn't really what I want for Age of Geek. Why push on trying to do something that I really don't have the time, energy or interest for? Don't get me wrong, I still love podcasting and want to stay close to the hobby. But Age of Geek as it has become is not really what I had in mind when it started. Therefore, after nearly nine years, I've decided to end the Age of Geek podcast.
I plan on doing one more issue to tie a bow on this whole endeavor and reflect on what doing this podcast has meant for me, but after that, AoG as a podcast will be no more. Thank you so much for listening over the years. I hope you have had as much fun listening to our antics as we did recording them. If you need a Ryan fix, we plan on continuing Drive Back the Night, so check us out over there. If you have a thought about the show you would like to share with us, send it to email@example.com
