End of the Line

Since we started the podcast over 6 years ago, we did it out of a passion for technology and for sharing our thoughts and opinions. A lot has changed over the years, and now the time has come for The Simulcast to come to an end.

I still greatly enjoy technology, but it has gotten to be more of a burden for me than a creative outlet. Preparing show notes, producing the show, and all the behind-the-scenes things that go into making a podcast have gotten to be a lot of work, and I’ve decided that I’d like to pursue some of my other hobbies at this point in my life. Patrick will soon be a co-host on a new show, and I’m sure I’ll be a guest on some other podcasts in the future.

I’d like to personally thank everyone who made The Simulcast possible over the years:

  • My other original hosts Steve Trotto, Geoff Farinha, and Michael Manna
  • Dave Valle
  • Patrick Virgadamo
  • Mike Florio (The Gadget Gurus)
  • Brian Feldhaus (sometimes guest host)
  • Todd Wright (also sometimes guest host)
  • Joe Lombardo (also sometimes guest host)
  • Ching Yao-Yu (also sometimes guest host)
  • My daughters Brianna and Miranda (Simulcast Jr)
  • Dave Ciccone (Mobility Today was where I got my start)
  • Brian Harris – possibly our only sponsor ever!
  • a lot of other people I’m probably leaving out (sorry if I did!)

Without all those great people, the show never would have happened in the first place or gone on as long as it did. I’m not going anywhere; I’ll still be participating on social media, and I’m still going to have opinions on the latest and greatest phones, tablets, computers, and home theater technology.

I don’t know what my future podcasting endeavors might be, but I look forward to continuing to meet great people and enjoying talking tech for a long time to come.

Take care!

Got a question for you guys. Gave up the 6 Plus in favor of Android. Don’t know how long this will last but I got the Nexus 6 on AT&T and am really liking it. I agree it’s too slippery so case is already on order. My question is I have 14 days to see what phone I want and was just wondering what you guys would pick? I like Lollipop but always think twice when looking at the Note. I’ve tried the Note 3 and didn’t ever use the stylus and then went to the iPhone and really liked the size.

Love the show.
