As you may have heard, Brian has decided to leave LR. We had a great run together, but the grind of it caught up to him and he wanted to pursue other challenges. You can hear it from him in LR 254:
I wish Brian all the luck in any endeavors he takes on, and I’m confident he’ll be successful at whatever he does. Also he will still be a part of LR, just not as regular co-host. Look for him as a recurring guest, and he’ll be helping me out from time to time in the background as well.
So where does this leave you and I?
Well, we’ve been here before, and I’ve always found a way to keep evolving the show in a positive direction. My plan is to keep doing that exact thing. I don’t know who will ultimately sit in that seat, but the process will begin soon and will be similar to the previous times that we have done it. I’ll have some rotating guest hosts, and eventually we’ll find a good fit.
My vision for the show is unchanged, and I will continue to bring you the best show I can every week. I want to thank you personally for being supportive of the show and of me. The listeners are why I do the show, and you guys never bring me regret for doing it.
Really, thank you. It’s been a rough week for me obviously, and you guys always seem to pull me through.
Some questions you may have, and the answers to them:
Is Limited Resources going away?
No. As long as there is value to be had in the world of Magic, Limited Resources will strive to bring it to you! Marshall will find a great co-host and the value train will ride on.
Will Jon Loucks come back as co-host of LR?
No. I talked with Jon about it, but we both decided that we love where Constructed Resources is going and now that we have finally started it, we don’t want to put it on the back burner. As for doing both shows, it’s not reasonable to have Jon be an expert in both Constructed and Limited outside of being a professional Magic player.
What about the Patreon?
It’s still going and will continue to. One of the beautiful things about Patreon is its flexibility. I am going to be a bit picky about which shows I post on there and which I don’t, however. I have high standards for LR and if I feel like a show doesn’t meet those standards, I won’t post it for the Patreon.
Will Brian ever be back on the show:
Yes. We are working on a possible recurring role for the show or at least frequent guest appearances. We’ll give him some time to be away, but he’ll be back.
Are you taking applications for co-host?
Not at this time. I have some people in mind and I’ll be contacting them myself.
