Thank You & Goodbye

August 5, 2016 | By | No Comments

Dear fans of GA –

I’m writing to let you know that the last episode was our final one.

It’s with a heavy heart but optimistic mind that I bring you this news. I came to Don, the co-host of this show, early this week to break the news to him. I told him that I love the work we’ve done, but that it was time for me to step down so that I can focus on other projects. He responded by making the suggestion to end the show now so that I could get working on those new ideas. I could go on and list all of these podcasts, plays and more, but the point of this letter is not to promote me. The point of this letter is to clarify why we’re stopping and thank you, our audience.

I will say that this was not an easy decision; in fact, I put off sharing my thoughts with Don for a quite a while. But as new projects came to fruition and others started to germinate, I felt it would be dishonest to him, our team and our audience to keep going. We’ve both felt less than motivated to make this show, so as a result, we are choosing to end it.

I’ll never forget Don stealing cheese from Chuck Palahuniuk’s hotel room, forcing him to listen to me “sing” Let It Go from Frozen, getting Dan Savage to open up about the It Gets Better Project, watching the show blow up on iTunes when college buddy Steven Yuen showed up and squirming somewhat uncomfortable (yet in total approval) of Don & Kate Mulgrew’s love fest.

Thank you for listening and supporting the work for the past four years. I know Don, Drew, Colleen, our media team, Golden Joe DeCeault, and all of the producers and guests who have joined us along this journey join me in sharing this gratitude. This will always be one of the most exciting and educational chapters of my life.

Much gratitude,

Ep 62: Eric Nuzum

This is an interview that may surprise people close to Eric, or who’ve been reading the buzz around Audible’s place in the audio space. You’ll hear us delve into some audio nerd stuff, but this conversation is more about leadership, risk taking, worship, addiction and Iggy Pop.

For those who don’t know, Eric Nuzum is the Senior VP of Original Content Development at Audible. He’s the boss man behind the new ‘Channels’ feature of Audible, which is sort of like a combination of HBO (highly curated programming) and Netflix’s recommendation feature. They know what you like from your listening habits, makes shows around that data and humans are happy around the globe.

There’s art in audio, people, and we’re here to tell you the who/what/where/why/how of it with our guest, rockstar executive Eric Nuzum.
