HD 43: A Blast From The Past

ZAO BEARD


A Blast From The Past

Well, computers are funny things. And to a dinosaur like me, I mean funny in a “how fast can I segregate it’s integrated circuits” sort of way. Another lost episode retrieved thanks to the intervention of Protovarius. He stripped away the audio in it’s raw form from Fin’s Twitch stream and was able to salvage almost all of it and what an episode it was! Our blast from the past was the return of High Drag’s very own Zao Amadues. Zao, along with a Mike Azariah hot drop, join the panel for what was a cutting edge discussion about the Oceanus release. Weeeellll, by the time we got it out, it was a bit dated. There were fun in this recording, though! Listen up and enjoy, for a first in High Drag history, both a Yin of Fin AND a Tao of Zao!

This is definitely podcast history!

Stay tuned for the Yin/Tao fits! They should be posted sometime in 2014….I hope.

Life The Universe and Everything Lost

We were hit by Vogons. We had lost hope. At first, we thought that bulldozing our house would be the worst thing but that was peanuts. Really!

In this episode, kindly supplied by Protovarious, we are joined by Domanark of Clueless Space Nerds to discuss current EVE news including Erotica1 back history and how that relates to a fresh round of account bans, aftermath of the alliance tourney and E-honor. We come back from the break with Random’s failed attempt at running a burner mission and we go into the Yin of Fin with not one….BUT TWO fits including the legendary Curse Sniper fit. So gather up your towel!

The Missing Episode #42

Well, without trying to minimize the tragedy of the 9/11 acts, our episode #42 has vanished in the depths of computerland. Have you ever seen a 4GB file that consists of about 3 minutes of audio. I have. And it’s a first for me….

Arrrgh! I hate losing episodes!

So, I will contact Fin and see what can be salvaged from his Twitch stream, but in the meantime, I’ll need to regretfully inform our listeners that episode number 42, the answer to Life, the Universe and Everything, was lost.

Damn Vogons!!

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”?

Brilliance!

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?
