The Final Five Questions (Ep. 25)

Hey there, devoted and intrepid listener. You’ve made it to the end. Congratulations!

After recording our ramblings for many years now, Thomas and I have decided to take a break from podcasting.

Thank you so much for following us for however long you’ve been around.

It means a ton, and I hope you’ll consider sticking around to see the other things we’ve got in store: YouTube videos, Notion things, music, art in various other forms, and who knows what else. Maybe we’ll even podcast again someday; I’m no soothsayer, so I can’t be sure.

If you’d like to keep up with us after this, we’ll still be around here:

I sincerely hope you’ve taken at least a few interesting things from these last few hundred episodes.

But above all else, even if you don’t care to see what we’re up to after this, I hope you come away with just this one piece of timeless advice:

Stay cute.
