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.


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!!

HD 86: EVE Is Dying, Amirite?

EVE Is Dying Amirite
Hey High Drag Listeners!!

We’re back with a long awaited episode 86! We’ve actually starting farming for some help in the bullpen to keep these podcasts running even when (yours truly) isn’t available to be on. With that in mind, we’ve brought OpusMagnum into the fold and together with Ash, Kyle and myself, discuss some of the interesting newest bestest things that have been announced by CCP over the past couple weeks. Drone Swarm, the October Balance Pass and the modification of the harassment policy are just a couple of things we settle into for this episode! Yep, EVE is dying. Long live EVE!!

Man, it feels good to be doing this again!!

HD 85: Hero Logistics

Hero Logistics
Heya High Drag Listeners!!

Wow, not sure what was going on with my voice, but I was stoked when this recording took place. Coming off the first weekend of the Alliance Tournament and taking part in the A Band Apart team’s first two wins was amazing! Don’t take just MY word for it, even the announcers were happy with our performance! I had to do an episode with, what was undeniably, the heroes of the ABA run on Sunday. Our Logistics pilots! Watson couldn’t make it but Leonard sat down with Ash, myself and guests Dirk MacGirk and Rixx Javix to discuss the (supposed) war and more importantly, AT. No Yin of Fin this time so no ship fit for ya, but we did get some great conversation! Hope you enjoy.

HD 84: The Prodigal Son Returns

The Prodigal Son Returns

Heya High Drag Listeners!
Well, despite floods and broken hearts and scheduling, we managed to bring the boys in to record an episode that was way too long in the making. I wont spoil the episode but the CCP layoffs after Vegas 2017 unsettled me greatly to the point where I had to consider whether I wanted to continue playing. Bring on January 2018 and my house gets flooded, sending me into hotel exile for 3 months. During which, I didn’t have enough wifi to play. Now, I’m recovering from knee surgery back at home and I turn to my “mistress”, Eve.

A lot of this episode’s content is, quite honestly, old news. But it’s been on my mind since Vegas and I felt I really needed to get it off my chest. Ashterothi, Fintarue and The Judge join me for a walk down the layoffs and how they effected us. We also talk some positive with the Abyssal sites and how those bite sized bits of content could be just what the game needs. Felt good being able to do this. Hope you enjoy!!
