    Imagine if Jay Leno got on the Tonight Show every night and for the vast majority of the time that he was on the show talked about how he was making this TV show and how much does the camera cost and he was really interested in getting a new microphone and he was talking to David Letterman the other day about making TV shows (cuz he was really cool cuz he knew David Letterman) and you know David Letterman said something to him that was REALLY interesting and it made him stop and think about how REALLY interesting that was and oh my god like if you want to make a better TV program you should do this that or the other, but his TV program wasn’t really about that.

    That’s right, imagine he spent the entire time talking about making the TV program. WHO WANTS TO HEAR A PODCAST ON WOW WHERE 90% OF THE TIME IS SPENT TALKING ABOUT THE MEDIUM IN WHICH YOU ARE PUBLISHING THE SHOW?! Other podcasters/bloggers that’s who. Your show isn’t about WoW. It’s about podcasting and blogging. It should be rebranded as “The official show of podcasting and blogging.”

    Listen to your show. Your real passion is not WoW. It’s podcasting and blogging. You waste the time of the people that actually have the passion of WoW and want to listen to a subject specific program about WoW.

    Your podcast fails.

  • @Alcuin: Imagine if you made a comment on a show called the Twisted Nether BLOGcast, branded as the official Podcast of a site called Blog Azeroth which was all about blogging.

    Imagine your comment was all about frothing ABOUT THE AUDACITY PEOPLE HAVE, MAKING A PODCAST ABOUT WOW BLOGGING THAT TALKS ABOUT BOTH WOW AND BLOGGING!

    Read your comment, consider where you left it. You waste the time of the people who understand that this is a podcast about WoW and Blogging.

    Your comment fails.

  • @Alcuin:

    I’m really sorry that you didn’t enjoy this episode. Have you listened to other episodes? Most of the time we have a little less blogging, but in general, that is our niche. Our main focus is, however, WoW Blogs and WoW Blogging. We just happened to have a lot more blog talk in this particular episode.

    Not for nothing, but there are many, many shows out there about WoW. Our show tries to integrate both WoW (which Nibuca and I do VERY MUCH have a passion for) and Blogging. If you aren’t interested in the topics we discuss, then I suggest you try out some of the many other shows out there. Ones like Outlandish, Rawrcast and The Instance.

    Thank you for your feedback

  • Wait…Just…wait. This podcast, that was originally started in the BLOG Azeroth WoW blogging forums, BY two WoW bloggers, is about…BLOGGING about WoW?? No way! I’m shocked too!…Oh wait, no I’m not! I know how to click links and check things out before I foam at the mouth.

    Your skill in reading comprehension decreases to 11.

    That actually sounds quite fascinating. I’d love to watch that. >.>

  • …wtf, how did it post my name as Alcuin? o.O Nooooo this is Pike.

  • I actually enjoyed this episode very much. I enjoy the uniqueness that is the TNB. I considered myself to be a casual listener, catching episodes here and there. After this episode, I’m definitely going to become a regular listener and follower. Thanks!
