I would be very sad if Vinny left. Even baseless speculation that he is leaving makes me sad.

I listen to the Beastcast like...once a month? Maybe? If I happen to remember "oh right it's a Friday" and download it
Which is up from not listening to it at all pre-Dan-on-vacation, which was got me listening to it in the first place
I'll probably make a more concerted effort to listen to it weekly once he makes the move
What I'm saying is I wouldn't care at all if Vinny left
It sucks when people leave but others can certainly step up

IIRC, they were going to get someone for GBE when Austin left, then Dan announced his transfer and Jeff started talking about a new GBW hire instead. I guess somewhere along the way he started seriously considering at least two new hires, one for each coast's needs?
Adam Sessler shows up in the most recent mailbag, hugging Vinny and chatting with him. People are already assuming he's the new hire even though it'd make very little sense.
Point is, ever since Patrick bailed after GOTY, I've sorta started assuming GOTY is when the 'Goodbye' hammer drops. Irrational, maybe, especially since Patrick technically left much earlier but was allowed to stay till GOTY, Austin left in the summer, Ryan passed in the summer, etc.

The last couple Beastcasts with Jeff and Drew were especially good. We got some of that old Jeff and Vinny magic, plus Drew seemed to get more involved in the conversation. On the Bombcast he can end up more in the background.

The key thing missing from GB right now was the brilliant way that Jeff, Ryan and Vinny would being able to improv off of each other. With Ryan gone and Jeff and Vinny on separate coasts, that shit is gone. Vinny/Alex/Austin were getting pretty good at it, but then Austin had to go and get all successful on us and I don't think Alex is enough of a foil for Vinny to really flex his improv.

I will say, Alex has done a great job of stepping up in the last year or so. While it's a bummer that Austin left just as the east coast dynamic was really getting good, I'm pretty optimistic about a Vinny/Alex/Dan combo.
At the same time, a good new hire on the west coast is going to be pretty crucial.

I'll keep watching because of Jeff. Dude is an endless font of videogame history and trivia.

They should just hire Kojima and let him produce with Vinny.
