  1. WOW a really great show Rho. It must have taken a lot of effort to organise, record and edit all those interviews. Well done.

    I first started listening to The Instance around ep #250 ish. I really noticed the high audio quality. After Convert to Raid it was the second podcast that I was listening too. well I suppose that depends if you consider Legendary / The Weekly Marmot / PST podcasts or videos.

    This relates to what you were talking to Joe about, the blurred lines between different media. Even podcasts with live chat rooms are incorporating different media (Text / audio) into something in its own category. Definitely is interesting.
