JCH PODCAST: Episode 9 – Now With Less Edits

JCH PhonesEpisode 9 – Now With Less Edits

I think Wednesday will be a great day for the podcast.  It gives me time to deal with job things and time to stew over whether or not to do heavy edits to the podcast.  This time I only edited the largest gaps of dead air.  We have those gaps because of latency and the fact that it’s hard to tell when it’s our turn to talk.  When we podcast together we have more natural banter, but the sound quality goes south.  Anyhow, enjoy the podcast for this week, and remember, I curse like a pirate, so strong language warning.

Episode 8 – I GOT A NEW HEADSET! SQUEE!

Well, after all of the static in the background, the shorting out, the weird background noises…I finally have a new headset.  This is an exciting time for me, because now I don’t sound completely like crap, or at least I can’t blame the microphone for the quality anymore.  Mike even managed to figure out how to make his headset sound better.  Oh yeah, I drop more F-Bombs than the US military, so be warned.

Heroes of the Storm August 18th Hot Patch.

On Monday the 18th we were greeted on the Heroes of the Storm Alpha General Feedback forum with a new sticky post titled “Daily XP Cap Increased for Coop/Practice”. The following was the contents of the developer post.

Hello everyone!

We’ll soon be deploying a quick update which will increase the current daily XP cap from 1.2 million to 2.25 million XP for games played in both Cooperative and Practice modes.

We shouldn’t need any downtime in order to release the hotfix, and there should be no impact on your in-progress matches. We’ll let you know as soon as this change is live.

Thank you.

JCH PhonesEpisode 7 – Sweeping Reddit for the First Time

Well, we pulled a late shift for this week’s podcast.  We did a few new things this week, just testing out some ideas.  We visited Reddit, talked about Heroes of the Storm.  We improved our podcast a little bit to this and there is a bit more chit chat about varied subjects.  Enjoy, and always remember, we use mucho adulto language!

JCH PODCAST: Episode 6 – Dumb Politics and Dumb Mics

JCH PhonesEpisode 6 – Dumb Politics and Dumb Mics

This week’s episode begins with our “dissemination” of Lenar Whitney’s video about global warming.  We show our hippy sides as we make fun of her ideas and beliefs.  We talk more about Heroes of the Storm and we discuss a few other things.  It’s a little over an hour this week.  Hope you enjoy!  Also, please excuse the technical issues – I do need a new headset.  I also would like to mention, F-Bombs HAVE BEEN LAUNCHED, so beware of the foul language :P!

JCH PODCAST: Episode 5 – I Heart Heroes of the Storm!

JCH Phones005 – I Heart Heroes of the Storm!

This week’s podcast puts us at the head of Heroes of the Storm.  While I was on vacation I received my invitation to the Alpha for the game and when I got home to play it, play it I did.  We talk a bit about the game, and towards the end we talk about an upcoming book and a couple of other things.  Listen in and enjoy the cast!  This podcast uses a ton of adult language, so steer clear if your senses be sensitive!

Intro – Dr. P’s Tetris Dubstep.

1:35 – Heroes of the storm discussion.  We talk about a patch that was applied to the game, and we end the discussion with a talk about Zagara, the queen who lays waste to everything on the battlefield.

63:00 – Discussion of Fight Club 2, which is set to hit shelves in the middle of 2015.

66:10 – Discussion of the 50 Shades of Grey film that is set to release on Valentine’s Day of 2015.

Enjoy!

 

JCH PODCAST: Episode 4 – Travelogue and Heroes of the Storm!

JCH Phones004 – Travelogue and Heroes of the Storm!

We had a plan to release two  podcasts side by side, but things happened, and we just did a last minute podcast to cover my trip to Florida and Mike’s obsession with Heroes of the Storm.  This cast was made with little post production, so much throat clearing and mouth breathing is present.  This is a step in the direction we want to go with the podcast, a natural conversation that is seamless.  The difficulty is latency on our software, which causes us to have stretches of silence every once in a while.  So many adult words!  You are warned!

JCH PODCAST: Episode 3 – Through the Interwebz

JCH PhonesEpisode 003 – Through the Interwebz

Welcome everyone, I hope you are enjoying our podcasts.  Today is our third episode.  We tried a new method yet again.  This time, we did our podcast over Ventrillo, a Skype-like program.  While the sound quality was better, and the editing was easier, we noticed that our push-to-talk option left us with unfinished words and sentences.  The podcast is still in its infancy, so we are chiseling away at trying to make it the best it can be.  I believe we will be bringing in a new microphone in a few weeks.

There was much drinking involved on my side of the conversation, so I must warn you now:  The F word, the B Word, the D Word, the C word, the S Word, the P Word…the words that offend you, are in this podcast.  You have been warned!
