You've altered my whole world view!,there must be a god as Randall is back!!I've been away from the forum and the show while Gene and Chris were discussing the issues that led to Chris' departure. This was because in no way did I want anyone in our audience to interpret my involvement here or on the show as an attempt to undermine or replace Chris, who I have tremendous respect for. During the interim I've been in contact with both Gene and Chris and IMO the arrangement they've come to is a positive one for them both.
With their issues behind them, I'm glad to report that I remain on good terms with both Gene and Chris and will be returning to the forums and show as time and circumstances permit. I also encourage anyone who is interested in Chris' work to contact him as he suggested above , and to follow him on his website Our Strange Planet
From my perspective this isn't as much a loss to The Paracast, as it is a gain the field because Gene and Chris are both tremendous assets and both are now free to evolve in ways that are more suited to their paths in order to better meet their full potential. Best of luck Chris!
