I've been listening to some old Bombcasts, and I cam across the few episodes back in 2009 when Jared Rea guested. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed his presence on the podcast. He's funny, knowledgeable, and has some great banter with the Bombcast regulars (I particularly love his enthusiasm for Lisa Frank Trapper Keepers). I miss that guy! I wish they would bring him on as a guest again! I know he was a pretty frequent guest on the Powerbombcast, but seeing as I have absolutely no interest in wrestling...I'm not going to listen to those haha. Anyone else think it would be great if they could get Jared back on the Bombcast sometime?

I love Jared. He hasn't been on a Powerbombcast for a very long time so I don't know what he's up to. I hope he's okay!

He's fantastic on the March 29th 2011 Podcast as well. He's so good I haven't forgotten that date.

He works for Nintendo now. We all know what happens when Nintendo staff go on podcasts.

If I remember right, he said that since he works at Nintendo, he stopped appearing on the Powerbombcast so there isn't a conflict of interest since Giant Bomb is still technically a video game website. I think he posted it on Twitter somewhere, but he wants to be more behind the scenes now.

Jared is my favorite, though. I'd love to see him anywhere on Giant Bomb again.

We'd gladly have him back any time, but right now his professional responsibilities prevent him from appearing on our shows.

@alex: Let him know we miss him and we love him! And that Jackie Chan: Fists of Fire will always have a special place in my heart.

@alex: It's pretty remarkable what people have gotten away with on your shows without getting fired as it is.

Late reply lol. I wasn't aware of that, and while that's a bummer, it totally makes sense.
