This is the end: after more than four years of lackadaisical podcasting, DeeAnn and I are hanging up our… microphones? headsets? I dunno. Anyway, we’re stopping now. It’s been fun, but it’s time to move on. (This also coincides with the dissolution of our California non-profit association, which we talk about in the show.)
Thank you to everyone who listened, commented, or supported us in other ways for the duration of this endeavor. We got to talk to some really cool people, and managed to spark some great conversations. We learned a lot, and we hope we gave you something to think about along the way.
Don’t worry, we are going to continue running puzzle events—honestly, it’s pathological at this point—and you’ll definitely hear about them (figuratively) on the Internet. But we’ll do it under other names which are more suited to the specific event. Those names may or may not include the word “Snout.” Always in motion is the future and shit.
Here’s one last overshare: our podcast planning spreadsheet! Note that the proposed “topic notes” don’t always match what we actually ended up talking about…
Finally: we forgot to mention in the podcast that as part of closing down “Team Snout,” we donated our remaining funds to Elevate Tutoring, another California non-profit which regularly runs puzzle hunts. Go check out their latest event, ETPH3 – Zara’s Big Adventure, happening on January 31st and February 8th!
Thanks again, everyone. Run More Games.
