Episode 65: September Warcraft Podcast Review

This is the week everything went sideways. The original plan was to do podcast review for the month of September with Rho however I'm a moron and recorded all of my audio with my webcam mic. Needless to say that audio is terrible so rather that spicing the show together I decided to rerecored everything and leave a few bits of Rho talking about his show in. I also put a little bit of the original audio at the very end of the Podcast if you really want to hear how bad it was. Other than next week Octale of VTW!

I said this in the show but I want to thank apsana, Octale and Emperor for all there support in the last week. These are good people and I'm honored to know them. You can find there work at The Darkmoon Herald, Octale and Hordact vs The World, and The Emperor's Court respectively.

On more note the RSS feed has changed, this is the new RSS Feed. This change is because google is getting rid of Feedburner so if you are still using the Feedburner feed know that at at some point in the not to distant future that will die. I have taken steps already to change everything for Itunes users. If anyone has any problems let me know.

To Whom It May Concern

To Whom It May Concern,

I was contacted by Tauren Tom, Station General Manager of Tauradio, yesterday with a complaint of cyber bullying of my guest Leto in Episode 60 of Grand Old Podcast.

My intent with my interview with Leto was to gain a greater insight into the History of Warcraft Podcasting, which Leto was a part of hosting a very early show on WCRadio. I also wanted to talk about the story of World of Warcraft, a subject which Leto had talked about on two of his pervious podcasts.

As I have stated earlier, after episode 60 went live, former members of WCRadio contacted me and informed me that many of Leto's remarks were untrue. It was also at this point I realized that there is a longstanding feud between some former members WCRadio; and I had walked into the middle.

Because of this feud and because I could not verify the truthfulness of Leto's remarks, I kept Episode 60 down and offline. I had felt that was end of matter until yesterday.

I'm not sure why Tauren Tom sent me this email. I have taken down Episode 60 and plan to keep it down. It is my plan to continue to do History of Warcraft podcasting interviews as long as people will talk to me or until I no longer enjoy podcasting. I wish this matter settled; sadly, it seems that it's the fire that keeps burning.

This is not my fight. Nor can I control what the few people that heard my interview think of it. I'm just a guy trying to do a podcast. It's not the biggest show, or even the best show, but it's a show I enjoy doing. Sadly, ever since episode 60 went live, much of the joy I take in doing the podcast is lessened.

If I have any say in things, this will be the last mention of Episode 60 on this blog. Also, for the record, my copyright still stands in that anyone with a copy of episode 60 may not host it and any persons with copies I would request they not play any clips of episode 60. Simply put, this is my hobby and I would like to get back to enjoying it.

Update1: It seems TaurenTom decided to post his original email in the comments.

Update 2: I've talked to Tauren Tom He says that he feels this matter is steeled as do I so I'm closing comments

EGO Networks

Its a with a fair bit of pleasure I announce that Grand Old Podcast has a joined EGO Networks. Since my Interview with Rich Fisher back in June we have been talking about this and its has finally come to pass.

To say this is not going to lead to any changes on the show would be lie, but the changes are small. We will have a few EGO Network banners on the site and I've also talked to Apsana about recording new intros and outros for the Podcast that reflect the change. Other than that expect that Grand Old Podcast will continue to be a place where I do interviews, talk about books, podcasts, and Warcraft lore.

Thanks to everyone that supports the show your all too kind, and special thanks to my wife for both letting me do the show and creating and updating the Podcasts logo.
