DDOCast Producer’s Letter Dec 2022

To the DDOCast fans and listeners and the greater DDO community,

A little over 9 years and nearly 400 shows ago I took over as the host and producer of DDOCast. I was suddenly the shepherd of a DDO podcast almost as long lived as the game itself and with 300 episodes of history behind it. Today that journey is ending.

It has been an honor and a privilege to serve the DDO community in this way. I’ve met some great friends and had some awesome (and at times quite heated) conversations about this game we all play and share a love for. It is humbling to even consider the number of hours people have spent listening to my thoughts and ideas about DDO and drone on reading release notes. We have had a lot of fun together over the past decade. 

Now that time is ending for me. Life is so different now and it becomes increasingly apparent that it is time for me to let go of DDOCast. It is not an easy thing to release. Over a decade ago I began making segments for the podcast and it has been a part of my life ever since. It is even harder so soon after the people of DDO and DDOCast helped me (and many of us) weather a pandemic.

What does this mean for DDOCast? I don’t know. I have been unable to identify the next host and producer of the show so, for now, the podcast will be going dark. Cyberears is also shutting down at the end of 2022 so the podcast will not have hosting for the time being. The show will still be available at in both video and audio form and the videos will continue to be available at and on youtube. You will probably still see me streaming and posting videos of myself and my friends playing DDO and D&D but for now there will not be new episodes of the podcast. If you think you might be, or know, the next DDOCast host and producer, reach out to me! I would love to find someone to pass this on to.

To all those who contributed and helped me make this podcast what it was, thank you. There have been many and your help has been greatly appreciated. To the Devs, it was amongst the highest of honors to have you on the show. Few players get to have the kind of access to you that I have enjoyed the last several years. Your love and knowledge of the game and its players was always fun to interact with – and you are all pretty swell people to hang out with too. And to the listeners: this show was always for you but you are the reason why it was fun to produce. 

So until next time. May all your attack rolls be crits and your chests be level appropriate. Have fun and don’t forget to gather for buffs.

Thanks for listening.
