Why, Oh, Why, did I come to the conclusion that for our 6 month anniversary episode a live podcast would be a good idea?

I mean seriously what the hell was I drinking? Oh that’s right it will have been Guinness as always as this idea came up about episode 16 or so.  Since then I have been silently dreading the oncoming approach of our 6 month mark, while at the same time also relishing the prospect.

I mean seriously I don’t think either myself or Gow thought that we would actually manage an unbroken streak of this long or if we did we seriously doubted we would still have any listeners left, but here we are.

However I think that is enough stalling, despite 2 computer failures and the addition of Pimms much live podcasting was done. We would like to thank everyone that joined us in the chat even if you did derail us a few times.  For the people who could not join us live, all the parts of the cast are available for viewing at  DrinkyTalkyThing on USTREAM: . The normal podcast will be out in the next day or so once I’ve converted the videos.  [Update] Audio version of the podcast is now available.

Links to almost all the topics we hope to cover are after the jump.

Also as always we are still taking suggestions for the mid podcast songs. So if you have a suggestion for song to be included in the podcast then put it in the comments of this post or send them too @DrunkenGamer or @D_Gow . They will be put on the short-list and you will be mentioned in the podcast itself when played

Anyway enjoy this episode of the Drinky Talky Thing.
