Full Of Shameless Plugs

Yea, the crew come back, joined by Ash and Kyle to settle in the very very post Hyperion release podcast episode. We throw Kyle to the sharks as he has to relearn this hosting a show thing on the run. We are also joined by Arcturus Helio, fine sponsor of High Drag and owner of the site, EveBlackJack.com. In this episode, we discuss The Alliance Tournement, the SomerBlink scandal 2014, a quick touch on the Hyperion release and a Cursed Yin of Fin! Get your ice buckets ready!!

Yea, there may have been some shameless plugs for everything tossed about…

HD 40: The Over The Hill Show

The Over The Hill Show

Well, it was bound to happen. Our drunken little podcast has hit maturity and is now considered “Over The Hill”. What better way to celebrate our backslide into old age than to have the return presence of Mike Azariah, CSM member and a feller that is older than myself. (That makes him ancient…) We balance this with Fintarue and we discuss the upcoming Hyperion release and the nifty new changes that are on the horizon.

In our second segment, we discuss a letter by the Mittani himself on the Mittani(dot)com. C’mon dude, you cannot be arrogant and ignorant…. Mike brings in the “traffic and weather” segment by reporting where the dangerous areas of New Eden are and then Fin brings us to ascendancy with a Retribution fit.

Slightly shorter episode since we were tired…

HD 39: Shhhh, My Boss Is Here!

Shhhh My Boss Is Here

Welcome Back to our listeners! Episode 39 Brings our intrepid crew of ‘casters and we are joined by Mike Azariah for our first hour and Bronya Boga, CEO of Isogen 5 (and my boss)! Our first hour has the talkative panel discussing what we’ve been doing in game and a couple of the noteworthy news items Post-Crius, namely CCP Rise’s dev blog on HAC’s and Battleships and the impending nerf of the Ishtar. This lights a fire under Fin since this will take place smack dab during the Alliance Tourney! We also discuss Theomachy, a hunger games style tourney. This lights a fire under Mike Azariah since the tourney takes place on Sisi, but the prizes are on TQ. In our second hour, Bronya steps forth and discusses a day in the life of a wormhole pvp corp, what is needed, what you need to know and how a poor sucker like me is going to survive. We wrap up with the Yin of Fin finishing up with noob fits for you Caldari and Amarrians!

HD 38: A Noob Hope

A Noob Hope

Welcome back to the High Drag where we ask the question “What can we do for the Newbs that we haven’t done already?” Ashterothi said “why don’t we just do a whole episode for answering noob questions”?


So episode 38, A Noob Hope, is a totally noob-centric podcast episode. We take a mail we received and answer a bunch of the questions. We handed out our Newb Package (care of CSM Member Mike Azariah and the Angel Project) How easy was that?

HD 37: Beating The Dead Horse Twice

Beating The Dead Horse Twice

Wow, Wow! Your intrepid podcasters return with a little help from Mike Azariah (who’s rapidly developing permanent Panel membership) in our pre-July 4th recording. In our first segment, Random discovers STEAM and we completely destroy our outline and go straight into the indy talk for Crius. Without Kyle to whip us along, we beat this dead horse, also known as the indy changes and then go into the Return of the ISBoxer issues. Yikes!

We return from the break with some listener mail and go into a discussion of DUO team piloting pvp and AznWithBeard hops in to hash this out with Fin. We move directly into the Yin of Fin where we continue the duo discussion with a remote rep Vexor fit.

Lots and lots of shoutouts! Be sure to listen to the very very end. ;)

HD 36: Skeletons, Squirrels and Doing It Solo

Skeletons, Squirrels and Doing It Solo

Summertime has certainly hit. Sometimes the urge to go out and see that big bright shiny thing in the sky is a bit more overwhelming than huddling in the dark and playing internet spaceships. At least for some of us.

We return with a new schedule now that Fin is gainfully employed and we return with a skeleton crew. Notably absent were Kyle and Ash. Thats alright though, since Random and Fin carry the load with an assist by Mike Azariah, CSM 9 member and epic mustache wearer!

Episode 36 is a squirrel laden show where we discuss what we’ve done in game, discuss our impressions of Kronos, throw a plug to the Angel Project, and thats just before the break! After we return, we talk solo pvp and get into a surprising Yin of Fin and Random’s arm length list of shout outs.

Didn’t see this coming!
