Congratulations are in order for a good friend, Garnett Lee. The host of the infamous 1UP Yours and Listen Up podcasts and executive producer at 1UP.com is leaving the publication that gave him his start to become the editorial director for GameFly Media, which owns Shacknews, FileShack, Ponged (focused on web-based games) and Game Answers (a community-driven Q&A site for games and other media).
I remember when Garnett was hired at 1UP, since I was an intern at the time, the sole contributor to the news department. Garnett brings an enthusiasm for games and games editorial that few can match. Of course, his rabid enthusiasm means he enjoyed playing Final Fantasy X-2, something I've never been able to fathom. Still don't, actually. But I'll continue to let it slide.
The future of the Listen Up podcast has not yet been determined. Podcast contributor and 1UP producer David Ellis told his Twitter followers there would be one more podcast with everyone together but couldn't speak to the future. "Change is coming," he said.
