April 11, 2016 at 7:00AM • 52 minutes

After 204 episodes, over 500 references to Magic the Gathering, and a couple dozen moments of typing with the mic on (ok, more like 204 moments, but who's counting), Aaron shares the sad news if his departure from the show.

But it's not all tears and rending of garments. There's a good amount of recapping and "favorite lessons learned". Hopefully, this episode doesn't fail to leave you with a few more lessons.

And thanks for 4 years of awesome memories, folks. I'll miss it tremendously. — Aaron
