As a capture of what the community is like at the moment and how you see puzzling and hunts and whatever, Snoutcast is a good one. So thanks for that.

I do think you've covered most of the good topics that you'd cover, so it'd be cool if you, for instance, just did interview episodes when you have someone to interview and skipped weeks when you didn't. And if you (or anyone else) want some ideas of who to talk to, here are some GCs who might have a different perspective than those you've talked to so far:

* Microsoft Puzzle Safari
* The Real Escape Game
* Mike Selinker (for Maze of Games) or Lone Shark Games in general
* Black Letter Game (If you can find them... they seem to have sort of faded into the background. The website has some commented-out stuff about another run in 2014, but it also says "next update in mid October")

Geeze, I was riding the metro and I wished I would have been warned to pause before that abstract, it was so bad... :)

Thanks for the feedback, guys! We'll talk more about this in our next show. :)

And by "this" I mean "whether or not to continue the podcast."

I'm a couple episodes behind, but I just saw the topic for this week, so figured I'd chime in here, too, although I haven't actually listened to any of the discussion on the topic yet, and might be missing some important context...

I agree with Greg that transitioning to an interview-only model (or even interview-mostly model, in case the two of you have a new burning topic to cover) and not necessarily every week would be fine. Biweekly? Monthly? Randomly?

A few more ideas for interviewees:
* Ravenchase
* Urban Adventure Quest
* Urban Dare
* Xperience Adventures

Regardless of what happens, thanks for all the SnoutCasts so far, as they'd provided many enjoyable hours of entertainment and education!
