Redditors rejoice, your overlord is returning! Well, he technically returned this past November; Alexis Ohanian has finally gotten around to emailing the community about rejoining reddit as Executive Chair.

“I’m so excited to be working with Ellen and the entire reddit team to keep improving and expanding the world’s largest and best platform for online communities to share and connect,” says Ohanian in his email.

While some people might have been bummed that Ohanian was retiring NYRD Radio there’s a bit of good news on that front. He launched a new, reddit podcast called Upvoted, and they’ve already reached 150,000 downloads in only a few weeks of operation; it’s even hit number four on the list of all iTunes podcasts.

Users can enjoy new episodes every Thursday, and subscriptions to the podcast work via iTunes, stitcher, soundcloud, and RSS. The best part is that if you have reddit gold on your account you’ll get access to each episode a day early in the lounge.

The Reddit team needs our feedback, as users, so make sure to join in the conversation over at /r/upvoted community.

“There are a number of other projects we’re in the process of launching at reddit, so if you want to be the first to know, subscribe our blog and follow us on twitter and facebook,” says Ohanian.

I don’t know about you, but I’m dying to see what they’ll roll out next!
