The time has come.
We’ve both entered our third decade this year, which means two things.
First, it means that we’re spending this episode reflecting on what we’ve learned from our last decade on Earth.
Second, it means that we’ve decided to end this very podcast. Not quite yet— we have two more episodes coming after this one, so we’ll end after episode 25. It’s a big decision to make after podcasting for many years now, but it’s hard to find a new path if we don’t stray from the current one.
If you want to keep up with us after that, we’ll still be around on Instagram (Thomas | Martin), Twitter (Thomas | Martin), and via whatever things we might link to in our personal sites (Thomas | Martin).
