    The 2019 Inputies and Final Episode of Input 👋

    The 2019 Inputies and Final Episode of Input 👋

    It's that time of the year where all of the biggest stars in gaming gather to celebrate this medium we all love, The Inputies™!
    Also, we are ending the show! Surprise! We have done this show for two years. Have done over 100 episodes, and have all learned a lot in the process. It wasn't always pretty and I, Jurge Cruz, would bet at least 15% of the episodes we somehow figured out to record on a weekly basis, are bad. Still, there were also some guaranteed bangers.
    It's fitting in tradition with this show that I'm writing up this post while I need to go run out and do something else because boy howdy this show sure was an improv comedy at times.
    Anyway, thank you to anyone who has listened to this show, bought a shirt, tweeted us something nice, and maybe even came on it. This certainly was a wild learning experience and I'm proud of some of the content we put up on this podcast feed.
    Sincerely. Thank you. 🙏
    Anyway, the awards!! -

    Logan Wilkinson's Farewell Episode

    Logan Wilkinson's Farewell Episode

    This is the final episode of Input with Logan Wilkinson as a member of Irrational Passions! Wow!
    This show would obviously not be possible without the contributions of Logan and his Domino's pizza loving ass. His passionate and very detailed approach has given Input that special flavor. Join us as we look back on the last 103 episodes of the show with him.
    Input is now going on hiatus. It could be one week, it could be a couple months. Making a show takes time, and hey, we don't get paid to do this show. We just really like doing it. So, we will try and think through what the future of the show looks like. That could be the same format, it could be a new format. Regardless, we will see ya then!
