Bad tidings: Podcaster Patrick Beja is shelving two shows, The Phileas Club (current events from international perspectives) and The Movielicious (discussion of recent movies, also from international perspectives). Both of these shows have been part of The Frogpants Network for quite some time, and have included hosts who also do other shows on that network.
Good tidings: Dead Gentlemen Productions, makers of The Gamers and The Gamers: Dorkness Rising, raised enough funding with their Kickstarter project to create a sequel to the latter movie, which will be called The Gamers: Hands of Fate. Their funding period has not yet ended, so you can still get in on being a backer. Since Dorkness Rising came out in 2008, they have been producing a web series called JourneyQuest which you can watch at that link or on Youtube. I discovered it as a result of learning about this Kickstarter project, and got caught up on the episodes in two evenings.
