I don’t even reflect on it much at all ... until I wish I had access to an old thread that proved prophetic. I just remember the podcasts getting longer and longer and the release dates coming further and further apart. Seemed like the podcast was over long before the forum died - but then, I suppose it’s still technically going even now.
Dan hit the same problem X-Files did. People liked the short, self contained, one-off stories. But those soon gave way to longer, more involved, multi-part epics that dragged on and on. Shit gets boring. Very few people carve nine hours out of their week to hear about Rome - but they might take one hour to hear about the HRE.
