Much like Obama's farewell address, I'm not sure I'll ever be able to listen to this episode.   Once I do I have to accept it's over.

Great job editing this, Parv.
And yes, I'm bumping this thread.

I shared this around privately, but it's warranted here as well:

 

I thought this was a perfect finale episode in that it called back to every big topic from the first 76 episodes and nicely put a bow on them as everyone reflected with their final thoughts after the journey. Credit to Kelly for the setlist, which allowed everything to flow organically.

 

And in the meantime, nothing said here closed the door on anything done on '83 + in the future. This wasn't a race to Bob dropping the belt where you blew through 20 episodes in 2 hours.

 

Well done.

This was a great listen, a great show in its own right as well as a fitting send off. The podcast world is now infinitely poorer.
