Henry Hyde and I don’t get the opportunity to meet face-to-face very often, so when we do, it’s time to chat about all manner of things.
One such opportunity arose at the Warfare show last November, and (surprise, surprise) our “10 minute” chat lasted for the best part of an hour.
One of the things we discussed was the future of the ‘View from the Veranda’ podcast. We started these back in May 2009 as an occasional chat about all things gaming. We always wanted to produce them on a more regular basis, but scheduling time for them was something of an issue – always problematic when Henry was Editor of Battlegames, and even more so now he’s editing a monthly publication.
This was the crux of this particular part of our chat: what were we going to do about VftV? I think it became apparent after not too many more minutes that not only did we both face challenges simply finding the time to record a show, but we were also thinking that perhaps the show had run it’s course in it’s current format.
So, bearing all that in mind, Henry and I have decided not to record any further episodes of the show. The show feed will be available until the end of January, when the monthly subscription will be cancelled. The URL is due for renewal during the first quarter, and this will not be renewed.
So, after 13 shows, with a total of 39,708 downloads, its time to say goodbye. Henry and I would like to express our heartfelt thanks to everyone for listening over the years, and for all the comments and feedback that we’ve had.
Happy gaming, and pass the banana oil…
