The Podcastle 023: Goodbye, England's Rose is an episode of The Podcastle released on 2008-11-20. It was the last episode of The Podcastle recorded with the entire crew recording from England, and is thus the birthplace of the running gag "Is The Podcastle ending because Jim is moving to America?".
Ladies and gentlemen, it's the end of an era. Yes, today marks the sad and tragic farewell of a podcasting institution. It's been a wild and crazy ride, but it was inevitable. All good things come to an end, so we humbly present to you the FINAL episode of The Podcastle...
...to be recorded completely in England.
No, you dolts! Contrary to the ten thousand questions and threats on the subject, my moving to America will NOT see The Podcastle suddenly stop being recorded. No, the show will only stand to grow as you not only get your latest happenings from the homeland, but a Brit's-eye-view of the American gaming scene. That's something that is mildly interesting!
All that said, it is still a sad episode, because I will no longer be able to smack Wardrox in the back of the head or sneak into Atheistium's room at night to do terrible, terrible things. Our relationship is going long distance, and that is a time for reflection. Or shouting and swearing ... always hard to tell the difference.
