This isn’t an acquisition per se but it is news for the WordPress community, from HeroPress, Hallway Chats Joins The HeroPress Family: “We were considering a podcast, but had moved it down the build list. Tara Claeys and Liam Dempsey, while loving the work they’ve done with Hallway Chats, found life was moving then in different directions, as it does for us all. And as Hallway Chats approached its 150th episode, the decision was made to pass the torch, or microphone as it were.”

On Twitter, Cate DeRosia tweets: “Not gonna lie. Podcasting was the last thing I thought I would ever do — that I wanted to do. And yet, the universe has a sense of humor.” This sounds like the mythical win-win-win, Tara Claeys and Liam Dempsey get to do other things, HeroPress gets an already built podcast to run with, and of course the WordPress community gets more Hallway Chats.

In the same vein, Topher DeRosia adds, “I’ve always wanted a podcast for HeroPress, and when Hallway Chats came out I realized it was the podcast I always envisioned, so now I’m really really happy to have them connected.”

It’s just great feel-good news!
