Why I'm passing the torch at NGP

Posted by Will - May 20th, 2021

After over a year of helping run and grow @TheNewgroundsPodcast, I'm sad to say I have to be away for a while.

The reason is pretty standard life stuff: I've just finally settled into a permenent living situation and scored a regular job, but said regular job isn't working out -- the managers are disappearing, I'm getting in fights with the current supervisors, my work hours are slipping away, it turned out to be a super loud environment and is killing my voice, blah blah et cetera. Which means I've gotta put serious time into finding a new job, WHILE riding out this old one, AND doing freelance work to keep the wallet full. NGP's gotta be off my to-do list, because right now I can't contribute in any way that's fair to the guys.

I'm stepping down to our "Regular" role, which means I'll still be on the show some, but much less routinely and on a less formal basis. More importantly, it takes me out of the central group of people who keep the show running every week with recording times, segments, guests, edited episodes and special events.

Now that I'm gone, the current hosts will start working on bringing someone else into the mix. This new host will be someone who not only slays at the microphone and charms the heck out of guests, but also has the time and vision to contribute regularly to NGP's leadership and keep growing the show to its full potential. I'm kind of excited to see who's dorky and handsome enough to fill my BIG MASSIVE SHOES. Yeah, I said it.

Sidenote on that: We're not currently holding an open call on hosts, so at this point I ask that you don't message us about being the new fourth person. As I always say to anyone eager to contribute, the best way to be on the show is to let us champion YOUR amazing content or community event.

Will I be coming back? Well, I'm not completely leaving, but the true answer is "we'll see". Life is weird, it has a habit of going in different directions really really quickly, and over the last few years I've gotten used to having no mother-f-in idea where I'm gonna be next.

If you want to stay abreast of how NGP proceeds from here, make sure you're following it on NG and Twitter, and make even more sure you're part of its bustling and super-fun Discord server. And if you're curious about my own journey from here, I'd love it if you followed my own Twitter @willKMR as well.

I'm so amazingly proud of NGP. It's grown so far past what @GoodL and I originally thought it would be. I'm proud to say I can step down from my admin role and know in my heart it'll keep going, strong as ever.

As the robot announcer lady loves to say:

Good luck man, I think bringin up the newgrounds podcast idea and keeping an open mind was great. Hope things work out.
