HD 99: The End of the Eve Media Meta Era


Download

We’re back! After a short break, the reigns of the show have shifted hands once again, and I (Kyle Yanowski) will do my very best to ensure that High Drag remains active and alive – bringing you discussions from the smoky bar rooms of New Eden. Coming back after a significant hiatus, I noticed that a lot of the Eve news sites and podcasts that I once relied to get through the honey-do list, are now gone. Sad as it is, we decided to touch on this subject and more, in Episode 99 of the High Drag Eve Online Podcast.

In this Episode:

1. The End of the Eve Media Meta Era
2. Hypernet Relay
3. And much much more!

The Panel for this Episode:

1. Kyle Yanowski
2. Ashterothi
3. Felinor Llin

Music in this Episode:
“Fat Bottom Girls” by Queen

Notes from the show:
The Poem “Eyes Forward Capsuleer” by Dranchela

Eyes forward, capsuleer, the cyno is not yet lit.
Consider your modules, your rigs and ammo before you undock, for the cyno is not yet lit.
Break free of the station and witness the universe before you, For the cyno is not yet lit.
Set your ship to fly through the vastness while you wait, For the cyno is not yet lit.
Pay attention, capsuleer, for those who have gone before you call for you to join them.
The cyno is now lit.

HD 98: High Drag Eve Universe Mash Up

High Drag Eve Universe Mash Up
Heya High Drag Listeners o/
I’m not sure who got the recording dates messed up (ok, I’ll take the blame for it) but we discovered that I had planned a High Drag recording the same evening that Ash planned an Eve Universe recording. Well, just like that “peanut butter in my chocolate” candy bar commercial, we decided to put the two together and see what shakes out. This episode is heavily lore influenced where it comes to the Triglavian Invasion. Honestly, there is sooo much deep information given that I’ll need to listen a couple times to digest it all. We are joined in the recording studio by Amarrian RP’er Arsia Elkin and Loremaster Makoto Priano for this powerhouse mash up.

HD 97: Pre Invasion Speculation

Pre Invasion Speculation
Hey High Drag Listeners o/
Sometimes, RL can suck. In the past I’ve mentioned that I work for a public school district as…yes…a Head Custodian. Actually, it’s the main reason that I became active on the podcast. I’m sure you could ask Kyle and he’d confirm it. 😉 Why am I mentioning this? We are fast approaching the end of the school year and my time has become something of a premium. Needless to say, the back end post production work kept getting pushed back further and further until I realized that …damn, we’re recording tomorrow and I need to get this done. Sigh…

Episode 97 is the crew discussing the Triglavian Invasion. Yeah, yeah, I know it’s already here. But, at the time we were spitballing all the fun regarding the new T2 Trig ships, the Invasion and more precisely…

…the loot!

Hope you enjoy!

HD 96: Welcome Back Rubal

Welcome Back Rubal

Hey High Drag Listeners o/

Just when you thought you were completely over the Brisc Rubal Banning, then comes the subsequent UNbanning and we’re late to the party again! As we noted prior to episode 95, 96 was a replacement recording for the missing 95 and we come in at the tail end of the announcement of Brisc’s return and the apology by CCP. We promise you no more Rubal, but we did want to get the episode out since we went through all the trouble to get it to download.

Thanks. ALOT. Discord.

HD 95: April Foolishness

April Foolishness

Hey High Drag Listeners o/
Episode 95 was a challenge. We switched our recording medium from Mumble to Discord and I F**king hate Discord. Sorry. We recorded the episode and it vanished when we finished. Kind of tough to edit when you cannot find the file. We then got together and recorded episode 96 as a replacement and while we could find the file, we couldn’t download it. Not a very good start for Discord.

However, not only did we manage to track down the errant episode 95, but we also downloaded episode 96!!

Episode 95 was recorded right after the April patch and the breaking news of Brisc Rubal’s banning. While many of the EVE news outlets pounced on the Brisc news, we wanted to take a slightly different take on the discussion. Hopefully, you’ll enjoy it. House Hendoe joins us in this belated April Fools recording.

HD 94: Oh Captain, My Captain!

Oh Captain My Captain
Hey High Drag Listeners!

Episode 94 was our 2019 dart board episode where we had a ton of little things to touch on. From the opening lines from Ashterothi saying “now everything is happening”, we move on through with Grats to Katia Sae for her amazing tour of New Eden, Wars, the spring patch….Whew!! So many little things. Then, the bitter. CCP Guard announced that he was leaving CCP and Evesterdam would be his last event as a dev. Our shout outs at the end are a tribute to Guard and the positive energy he brought to a sometimes infuriating game. Svenni, we will miss you. o7 and Fly safe!

HD 93: Take 2-This Time No Gremlins

Take 2 This Time No Gremlins

Hey High Drag listeners!

This was our second attempt to record episode 93. In our first attempt, we invited House Hendoe and recorded a fine show but we suffered some sort of Azariah level gremlin attack. I made several attempts to work with the audio, but eventually, I ended up scrapping it. We will bring back Hendoe again, but in this recording, we have Greygal and the rare appearance from Kyle Yanowski.

Our discussions this time around cover the Alaskan Cruise arranged by Greygal, The cancellation of the Alliance Tournament and the aftermath of Guardian’s Gala.

Also, episode 93 marks the first time Opus Magnum takes the reins and runs the show! Hope you all enjoy! Please take a minute and give us a review on your preferred method of listening. It helps us be more visible to people who may be looking for EVE related podcasts.
