Be advised… podcast reboot inbound

My name is Ken Whitehurst, and I currently produce a short segment called “The Score” for The D6 Generation podcast.  A longtime fan of This Week in Wargaming, when I heard Troy was looking for help,  I immediately offered to take over the podcast.  For reasons that remain a mystery to me, he agreed.

As you can see from Troy’s posts (and photos) below, his priorities are in the right place.  I wish him the best in his endeavors, and am certain we will hear his big voice on the show when he has time in the future.   I have been trading emails with him over the past few weeks, and am in the process of rebooting This  Week in Wargaming.  The show will sound a bit different, but will stay on its mission of delivering fresh news, reviews, and opinions on a variety of topics of interest to wargamers.

I hope you will bear with me as I take the plunge from editing a monthly 5-minute sub-podcast about music to assembling a weekly wargaming news show.  I plan to have the show up and running before the end of the year.  As I write this, new theme music is being written to give the show a coherent sound.  In addition, gamers in three countries are working on contributions to the show’s new format.  If you have any suggestions or an interest in sharing your voice with the wargaming community, please let me know.
