Yesterday, the very last episode of Guys With Pencils went up, so I wanted to tell you about this wonderful podcast.
The first episode I heard was your (first) interview to Katie Shanahan (‘cause I love her), and after hearing it I went and listened from the very first one.
I was fresh out of college, unemployed, and listening to the first episodes I could relate a lot, you don’t know it but when you guys got your first gigs and jobs you gave me hope, that if I just kept trying and doing my thing stuff would work out… And it did!
My first job was very depressing, but with headphones on, I would just keep smiling for about an hour, feeling like I was listening to friends talking about interesting subjects instead of acknowledging that I was alone in an office.
You don’t even know me but you both have been so nice to me, and I found it fun when you asked me if I was mad that you were ending the podcast, but hell no! You never missed an update (well I think only once… in three fucking years!!!) you were great! And I know you will keep being great! I’ll look forward to what you do next, be it indie games or chamber pots or whatever! Good luck!
