Hearthcast: Fun and Done
After nine years, the podcast Hearthcast, is shutting down. Rewt and Freckleface did their last “goodbye” broadcast before calling it quits. Freck is moving to Japan and they’ve decided to close the show.
Having listened to them for nine years, it feels like they are friends. It is part of the WoW experience for me. They always kept it to about one hour, perfect for listening and fishing while in game.
It was fun talking to my guild master who listened also. We’d share notes or laughs about the show.
In their list of thank yous, my name was mentioned. This was flattering and it felt good to be remembered. They’ve done a lot including panels at Blizzcon. Living in Florida, they host Hearthstone meet-ups, they are called “inn keepers”. Certainly, I would say that they are active in the broader community of Blizzard.
I’ll miss them and wish them well. They gave me some good laughs, fun advice and insight into another player’s experience in this World of Warcraft.
