"It was what I always wanted to do. And I did it. It was incredible from start to finish. When I was asked to come back in 2019, I didn't even hesitate. I have loved every minute of it. But like all good things, even this one had to come to an end.

“As I tendered my resignation, I wrestled with the decision for weeks. It wasn't easy, but it felt right. Thank you @swimbohouse for my first shot and to @chriskirubi for inviting me back. To you the listeners and this incredible group of talented folks I worked with throughout my journey.” Khimani wrote.

“A special shoutout to @soni.side.up for being such a fun and authentic co-host. It was extremely short but had such a profound impact on my career. The seat and the mic are now open...." He added.
