The Death of Kwok Talk

October 20, 2011 Leave a comment

Today, I officially cancelled my Libsyn account. This era of Kwok Talk has come to a close.

Thanks to all who have supported the show over the years. It makes me laugh that for over five years people found my ramblings worthwhile to download. Thankfully comics have taught us that no one stay dead and I already have ideas for the podcast’s return.

It won’t be soon. It won’t be on iTunes. It won’t be delivered in the traditional podcast format. You’ve seen the show reinvent itself several times over already and the next stage intends on being another step forward.

Thanks again for downloading, listening, contributing all this time. We’ll be back eventually, I promise.
