And that's a wrap. I remember listening to the very first Chaos Theater podcast way way back in Summer 2011 on a relaxing day driving down to the family boat, almost like a different era really. Appropriately it was about Earthbound and the podcast would go on to cover a wide variety of topics and get me interested in a lot of cool things that I otherwise might not have known about. Then of course you had topics on classic games or films from my childhood and generation in general that gives views or ideas I might not consider. Thinking about it nearly 7 years is an impressive amount of time to keep a podcast like this going as you try to balance day to day life and changing perspectives and values and all that stuff. When I started to see it go to less and less episodes per year (it picked back up again in recent months though) I figured time was becoming an issue and that this would be the last year for it. I think now seems like the right time to end it as I'm just not sure how much the internet appreciates sober non-polarized views on these sorts of topics anymore.

Gonna give these last few episodes a listen on my new headphones I got for Christmas on the way to work this week I think. :D
