I’m stunned and terribly saddened to hear of the passing of longtime listener Andrew. He helped to give the show the name Wargaming Recon. Andrew was a kind soul who selflessly gave of himself to help those around him. Despite being legally blind he taught children how to wargame.

Wargaming Recon has lost a good friend in his passing. I ask all listeners to join me in a moment of silence in Andrew’s honor.

    I really enjoyed your interview with Joe. You sold me on the Kickstarter, and I’ve backed for a DVD – first time I’ve ever backed anything!

    Will we still get to hear a Henry Hyde interview before the end of your podcasting year?

    1. Jonathan J. Reinhart Post author

      Unfortunately Henry’s schedule doesn’t allow for him to appear on the show in 2015. He and I are working to book him early in 2016. Most likely he will be on an episode in January or February at the latest. If it was up to me I’d have Henry on at least once a month…but that wouldn’t be fair to everyone else I want to have on the show. So glad you backed the Kickstarter. It will be a fantastic documentary. Can’t wait for it to come out. I also backed it for a DVD.
