@pandabear: I really hate it when people claim they know what the recently deceased would have wanted... but don't you think Ryan would have been pretty bummed if the bombcast finally missed a week?
That said, I have zero demands or expectations, because you're right, they should have their time to grieve. I can't imagine that being in the podcast room would be easy with such a large presence missing. I just want a vague idea of how they're doing, not for entertainment or comfort's sake. Purely out of concern.
For all I care it could be a 5 minute podcast. Just so we know what to expect for the near future.
