Leaving Kotaku

Dear newsletter subscriber,

Some exciting news, in case you haven't seen it: After eight years at Kotaku, I've decided to leave and accept a position on the talented tech team at Bloomberg News, where I'll be writing about culture, business and labor in the video game industry. I did an interview with the Washington Post about why I left and an interview with GamesIndustry.biz about a bunch of interesting topics. If you're looking for an interview IN VIDEO FORM, I spent an hour talking to Kinda Funny's Greg Miller about this job transition and lots more. It's been overwhelming and incredible.

The other exciting part of this equation is that my former Kotaku Splitscreen co-hosts and I have started a new podcast, Triple Click, on the Maximum Fun network, where we're going to (surprise!) talk about video games. We think it's gonna be real good. You can find the show on any podcast listening device of your choice.

I'm taking the next few weeks off to be full-time daycare for my seven-month-old and put the finishing touches on my second book, which is nearly ready to be sent out to beta readers. (They're like beta testers, but for books.) We're looking to publish around May of 2021, which I know is later than some folks have hoped, but hey, it wouldn't be video games if there weren't some delays.

Hope you're staying safe and healthy and reading lots of books!
