Thanks everybody for all the interest! I'm sorry if you've emailed or tweeted at me and I've been slow to respond. I'm working my way through messages and reaching out to a few potential co-hosts at a time. This has been an odd experience, somewhere between meeting new friends and conducting a job interview. Things are progressing, though! No firm date on launching the podcast, but I have a name and I'm setting up hosting etc...

Thanks. I haven't made any firm plans yet, but I may end up working with more than one cohost, so schedule conflicts might not be a big deal. Let's chat! Email me at info [at] theshortgame.net and we'll work out a time to meet via Skype.
Hi all. I'm Raygan Kelly and I'm a podcaster. I do a show called The Short Game where we discuss (ready for it?) short video games. I'm excited to see Itch.io starting a forum, because I'm working on a new podcast about the itch.io platform and community. I'm currently seeking a co-host and guests and I'd love to hear what people would want out of an itch.io community podcast!
I've been planning for a while now to launch a separate show specifically about the itch.io platform. It would be a weekly show no more than 30 minutes in length (maybe shorter) that would include news about itch.io and highlight one cool game or developer from the Itch.io community each week with a discussion and/or developer interview.
I may do this as a solo project, but I'd love to have a co-host if anyone is interested. My co-hosts on The Short Game don't really have time for a second weekly podcast, and ideally I'd like to meet new people and reach a new audience. If you're interested, let me know here or write me at info [at] theshortgame.net. Experience with podcasting or other media (YouTube etc...) isn't required but would be a big help.
I'd also love to hear what the itch.io community would be interested in hearing! What games/developers do you want to hear about? What sort of format are you interested in? What should the show be called?!
