A Bad Podcast Morning

Monday morning. 

That usually means bad traffic and fresh podcasts during my commute.

Not this Monday.

VirginWorlds: The #1 on my list for Monday morning, was not out yet.

Fear the Boot: Also not available this morning.

Massively Online Gamer #43: I listened to it last night.  If it had been a good show I might have listened to it again, but something about episode #43 just wasn’t working for me, so I did not even make it to Jethro Thule part III.

WoW Podcast #8: I figured this might be interesting after the roundtable discussion in show #7. 

And it was interesting, in an abstract sort of way. 

Broken Egg Media fired all the old hosts and brought in somebody new. 

That seemed to be a very odd strategy to follow, considering that the founders of BEM spoke on the podcast about how WoW Podcast was the #1 ranked  podcast on iTunes. (In the MMO, WoW, or Gaming related category I assume.)

They actually said that the former hosts wanted to spend more time playing the game.  This is, of course, classic corporate speak for “we asked them to leave.”

So they introduced a new host, Laike, who may or may not be a very capable podcast host.  She did not get to say much. 

They also announced that they need two more hosts.  Do you want to host a WoW podcast?  You can head to their site and put in an application.  There is a link on the main page.

A really cynical person might take the big WoW gold selling ad on their page as a sign of how things played out.  I am certainly not *that* cynical. 

On the flip side of all of this, the traffic into work was surprisingly light, which was good, since I nearly had to turn on the damn radio.
