    Is it just me or is the sound all over the place in this. I turn it up cause I can't hear some parts then I get a sudden blast of sound as someones mic is far too loud =/

    Whelm Spale rearranged itself in my head to Whale Sperm... I know that's not correct but I thought you should know. :p

    Well after being a long time listener to these podcasts i've come to this conclusion. They all sit in a circle facing each other with a mic hanging down from the ceiling, boxing ring style. When they want to speak sometimes they get up, leave their chair and stand in the far corner of the room. Or they try to lean into the mic until it's nearly in their month. Oh also every once in a while one of them bats the mic so it's swinging wildly for a few minutes, normally just before one of them speaks.

    Great podcast though. Found it very funny.

    Actually, we have four professional quality microphones right in front of each of us, which we try to sit as close as possible to and speak directly into. The real problem is simply that we're idiots.

    It's interesting to note who thinks Whelm Spale is 'Sperm Whale' and who thinks its 'Whale Sperm'.

    I'm so happy y'all at Bit-tech are such great chums but it took 90 secs to talk about anything other than each other, then the discussion on the games expo was just too unstructured, had to stop listening at that point. Can I suggest the podcast starts with a brief intro about what you're going to talk about and in what order cos I just couldn't listen to 60mins of that on a hope that you might discuss something I might be interested in.

    Thanks all the same ;)

    Roosterteeth do a thing where they add links of what they're gonna discuss on the player page for their pod casts. Granted they talk crap about what they had for lunch and random stuff they've seen on the news etc its quite effective at letting the listener get some background to what they're discussing incase they've missed the topic and ut also saves them explaining the article in more detail than needed

    My first thought was , "who's Wilhelm Spale?" ...but that's probably just a product of living in Germany for too long:D
