The Verge: One of my favorite podcast hosts died, and it feels like I lost a friend

One of my favorite podcast hosts died, and it feels like I lost a friend (The Verge)
Screenwriter, comedian, producer, actor, and author Harris Wittels passed away yesterday at the age of 30. Even if you don't recognize Wittels, you know of his work. He was the co-executive...
I have been trying to figure out why I felt bad about this, and I’m glad someone else could articulate it for me.
