    There have been a lot of goodbyes below already from silent listeners that completely encapsulated my feelings on the demise of WC but I knew I had to add my voice here just to show my appreciation to all the people who made me look forward to traffic in my daily commute to work. I've heard a lot of people commenting in the threads that comes from various countries and I just want to add me and the Philippines in that list.

    Thank you Garnett. I honestly think that you and me have the farthest in gaming tastes (I hate driving games and I really don't like listening to you do a 5 min monologue on GT6 or Fortza) and I cannot count the number of times I'm gesticulating wildly (while waiting in traffic) on how absurd you opinion is on a particular topic. I still listen on though since this contrast is one of the reasons why I keep coming back to WC. I don't need affirmation of my tastes; I need that diverse opinion (whether from logic or from your unmistakable passion) to make me have to think about my true stance about what you guys talk about.

    I think your standout skill is the way you structure and control the podcasts. Your show seems to be the only gaming podcast that can handle more than 3 people talking yet still sound intelligible. Though I sort of feel sometimes that you guys were grasping for topics to discuss and despite episodes where the alcohol levels are getting high, the podcasts never feel like they are meandering and always feels professional. I also know that your love of playing devil's advocate on unanimous opinions does more to make the podcasts worth listening to than all of you guys patting yourselves on the back that this is the only opinion worth discussing.

    That is how you show that this is without a doubt your "goddamn show".

    Thank you Jeff. You and me are probably the most alike in gaming tastes and general opinion. I appreciate how with you being there you represent ME in terms of opinions on discussions. I really really love how you really really love things. I really believe that is what is missing most from these types of podcasts. I love how you reel in Garnett and the other guests when they go into bouts of outright negativity.

    I've been listening to your own podcast (only up to ep02 though but I plan on listening to all -- commute time has been fast lately) and it's still a bit rough. The structure and the flow of the conversations still leaves a lot to be desired but I plan on listening on. I don't know if it's in the table but I think you really need a 3rd person to remove the formality of the show. Right now it seems a little of my turn, your turn with Spicer in the first episode. The second episode was much better with the third guest (sorry forgot his name) though it seems there was not enough of Jeff Cannata opinions in that episode. You'll get it though; you and Spicer are too good.

    In any case, thank you to all the other guests as well. I don't want to enumerate you all (since my post is so long already) but you all did so much to make the show so memorable. My only real worry for the next show of Garnett and Jeff is that a smaller or less professional studio will limit how often multiple guests can come into the show.

    I also want to add my voice as one of the persons willing to shell out money to have Garnett and Cannata continue podcasting.

    Thanks again. Please. Don't be ghost for long.
