    Default Potential Podcast Idea?

    I was thinking, it'd be awesome if a couple of days before the podcast comes out, you could announce a couple of the topics that you're going to discuss so that people could send in questions that you could answer after you've discussed the topic. Good idea?

    Not a bad suggestion. We tend to decide kind of last-minute what we're going to talk about, though, and frequently it's stuff that happens a day or two before we record. But if you send us a question after you hear us discuss a topic, we'll happily answer it on the next show.

    I thought having a segment where you pick an interesting forum topic and discuss it amongst yourselves would be cool. I know you barely have the time to get to the topics you want to discuss but I wouldn't stop listening if you sacrificed oh say 15 minutes out of your 90-minute cataclysm weekly updates

    OH SNAP.

    Honestly I like Josh's endless Cataclysm talk because it lets me skip ahead and shorten the length of the podcast to something I can fit into one session

    lol.. I love the podcast but the week they took a 70 minute podcast, talked about cataclysm for the first 20 did wow parody songs for another 15 and dedicated the last half to interviewing wow podcasters... I almost wrecked my car b/c i drive a stick and was trying to fast-forward through the wow talk not knowing it was a wowalicious episode. Couldn't finish it.

    Yeah, I don't mean to be rude (I know only too well how easy it is to bore the socks off someone when you're obsessed with a game and they're not) but the WOW talk really does get me down a bit. It just reminds me why I can't be bothered installing that WOW trial I've got sitting on my desk.

    PCG UK tend to tweet asking for questions before they podcat. Usually about TF2. There are games other than WoW and TF2 you guys!

    We should have a poll somewhere to find out what percentage of readers don't care about those 2 games...
