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.

HD 92: Back In My Day-A Noob Hope Revisited

Back In My Day-A Noob Hope Revisited

Hey High Drag listeners!

Between real life and real illness, our first episode of 2019 got out a little slower than I hoped and for that, I’m very sorry!

Episode 92 was a retrospective. During gluing together the montage in our anniversary episode, I got to thinking about how Episode 38: A Noob Hope was one of our most popular episodes at the time. That was 5 long years ago and many things have changed. So, issuing in the new year, we decided to revisit A Noob Hope and see how our answers changed from then. Hope you enjoy!

HD 91: Holiday Rage


Holiday Rage

Happy Holidays High Drag Listeners!
We recorded this episode just before the Christmas holiday and due to just real life stuff, I am a little late getting it all wrapped up and served with a bow. In this episode, we discuss the destruction of the very first Keepstar in Hard Knock’s hole, Rage. We also talk about the winter event “Operation Permafrost” and the winter presents, compliments of CCP.

I’ll be honest, this is a bit of a ragey episode. We’ll just think of Permafrost as that one relative that shows up for the holidays that you have to tolerate. Hope you enjoy!!

HD 90: Happy Birthday To Us

Happy Birthday To UsHey There High Drag Listeners!!

Tonights recording was quite the milestone for us. As of the recording, we had turned 6 years old as a podcast. My, how the time flies! Tonight’s crew talk a bit about the December patch that will drop on the 11th but more importantly, I search through the early episodes of High Drag starting at episode 2 and splice together a montage of some moments I found clever or funny. It’s amazing to hear the quality of the recording change over the course of that year. Yea, a year. With 89 episodes in the can, I had a lot to listen to to find those. Soooooo….the montage covers up until January 2014 where we crown our new intro. I think from this point on, we may do a bit here or there from the histories, but for now, we hope you enjoy the ones I found.

A huge “THANK YOU” to all our listeners. You are great!

HD 89: Misrepresenting Bloody Omir

Misrepresenting Bloody Omir
Hey High Drag listeners!

Episode 89 starts with the idea of finishing up the Eve Vegas 2018 coverage but the only thing we really had left to talk about, was the teaser for the story from last ep. So… we continue with discussion of the Crimson Harvest event. This event, last year, was dedicated to Bloody Omir, the leader of the Blood Raiders and his ritual of harvesting the blood of man. However, this year’s harvest had little to do with blood. Crimson ….what?

We talk Onslaught, the expansion coming up this week but also discovered that a LOT of it was covered. Save for the few odds and ends bits we didn’t cover from the Vegas…..damnit, I give up!! Now we’re back at square one!

Random, Ash and Min discuss the Harvest event, Onslaught and whatever other squirrel ideas pop in. Hope you enjoy!!

HD 88: Mostly Vegas 2018 Recap

Mostly Vegas 2018 Recap
Hey High Drag listeners!!

Welcome to the 2018 Vegas Recap where we try to stay coloring within the lines but like good Kindergarteners, we just cannot quite do it. We recorded this fresh after the Eve Vegas event but Real Freakin’ Life put some whoop ass on me and kept me from my editing duties. So…while we weren’t the first to get content out, we are, of course, the best.

*cough*

In this episode we strain to keep things to two hours and talk about the coolish things we saw and heard for the upcoming year of Eve. We didn’t hit on it all. No surprise there. Tonight’s talking heads featured Random and Ash, new host Daehan Minhyok, and we are joined by Greygal with a cobbled together pirate transmitting signal. Hope you enjoy!!
