Considering the shocking and upsetting news of Ryan's death, is there any word if a podcast will be released today? What time are they usually released? I am more antsy than usual because I want to share in the memories of Ryan's life.

I would assume not, and would not be disappointed if there wasn't. I understand the entire community of GiantBomb and the family and friends of Ryan need their time. My guess is there won't be.

Nothing yet, man. Jeff hasn't said anything. Or Brad.

I understand the need to heal, I totally get that, but c'mon, it's like letting the terrorists win if they don't put one up.

The Reaper is a god damn terrorist if you ask me.

So you're saying we need to call in Shephard?

I really hope they put one up. Wouldn't be surprised or offended if they took a week or two to recover a bit. Fingers crossed though.

I really want to hear from them. I'd understand if they didn't, but I feel like I need to hear them to make sure the family is OK.

These days (before) I expect it by 10 PM CST, or so. But that's me.

A tasteful celebration of Ryan in a podcast a month or so from now seems more appropriate rather than while everyone is grieving.

Nothing stops the Bombcast. Jeff would do the Bombcast on his deathbed, or while his head is in a jar.

For those who don't want to copy and paste, Patrick posted on twitter about 20 minutes ago, "podcast".

Ryan would never have let there be a Tuesday without a Bombcast. Going to be tough to listen to.

Look, it's going to break our hearts to hear this, but I feel I can't breath until they do. I need to hear my long distance friends voices. They mean a lot to me, as I'm sure they do to you too. The bombcast will not stop. It's for Ryan!

I don't know how they're doing it, and I wouldn't be surprised if we have to hear the break music a few times. God bless 'em.

Unfortunately, i think they all realize the longer they wait to get back to normal, the harder that will be and the more focused everyone will be on whatever content comes next.

And in all this confusion i think i'd forgot about his relocation... I wonder if Patrick is skyping in or if he's traveled back.

@spartan3

try not to worry about it. I'm sure previous Bombcasts have gone up later than this. If they have recorded it, it must have taken a long time to record in order to get the tone right and properly articulate what they have to say, and will probably take a while to edit.

If they didn't than that's fine too, but I think they would have posted something saying so.

Check back every once and a while but don't drive yourself crazy. They love this community, know how much we love them and will let us know when they are ready to let us know.

I think it should wait until next week. I was just thinking about it today, and even if there was one day: I just couldn't listen to it.

I would completely understand if there wasn't one... I would actually be quite supprised if there was actually.... everyone is just bummed out and sad about this whole situation, I couldn't even imagine how the guys at GB are handling this, or the gamespot crew, or anyone who knew him in the industry (which was just about everyone).
