This is certainly good news for Garnett, but it’s horrible news for fans of 1up and the 1up podcast, Listen Up. Garnett Lee has accepted a new position with Gamefly, Inc. where he’ll act as editorial director for their gaming sites, including Shacknews. David Ellis announced on Twitter that the Listen Up crew will do one more show together and then Garnett will make his move over to the new job.
With John Davison’s What They Play being sold to IGN recently, his status with the podcast is also up in the air. The show has survived key members leaving before, but Garnett was the man that ran the show and made it what it was. Maybe 1up can woo John back now that he’s become a free man again, huh? Most likely the show will continue on, but it’s certainly not going to be the same.
Good luck Garnett.
