I started SE Radio six years ago, with the help of a number of great people. We made SE Radio to one of the leading podcasts on software engineering. For me, it was the vehicle for getting into podcasting. I did about 120 episodes there! They were a lot of fun. I learned a lot about software and about podcasting, and I got the change to talk to some fascinating people.
More recently, as you could tell from the number of episodes I was involved in, I ran out of steam. Two reasons: one, I spent a lot of energy on my omega tau science podcast. We have published 87 episodes there already! The other reason is that I simply covered many of the topics I am interested in... sure there is new stuff, but I cannot come up with the same enthusiasm for some of that stuff as I could years ago :-)
Although SE Radio was always a team effort, I was always the one who held it together. As I started retreating a bit, I wanted to make sure SE Radio would continue to prosper. So I had been looking for a somebody (person, organization, group) who would keep it going, with renewed energy. IEEE Software is that organization.
I am extremely happy about this development, and I am sure SE Radio will continue to produce many interesting shows in the future. And I am sure, I will be involved with a few of them :-)
Thanks to all of you listeners for your encouraging feedback over the years :-)
