Thanks so much for creating this show. I would leave you guys a review but I don't use iTunes. :(

I look forward to seeing who comes out of the woodwork for an interview. Personally, I'd love to hear from Mindcrime as he never talks about his Quake days and, of course, Romero himself. John is always ready to talk Doom but he rarely talks about his latter days at Id... 
Episode 6 
Yess! I've Been Looking Forwards To This! 
Perfectly Aggregated

All casts will automatically appear as they are uploaded. I'm pushing it through yahoo so, maybe that will help with exposure. I honestly don't know what yahoo does with yql statements. I'm assuming they do more than just provide a service. Maybe with enough queries you end up in some search results somewhere. That link forces a fresh query on every page visit. 
Nice Gypsy!!! 
That's cool. 
It wasn't hard to do. I think the final code was like 600 characters. I could make it even shorter if I renamed some things. Actually, I built this locally in an html file. If anybody wants that file for like a live desktop directory of QuakeCast, I have no problem sharing it. It has no style at all but title, description and audio player appear for every entry. 
Local Version 
I slimmed my original down and turned it into a local version. There is a link to it in the description at the top of the page for the link I posted here. It's one html file zipped up. Just unzip it and double click the html file. It will always be 100% current. I'm busting yahoo's cache so, it's always forcing a fresh retrieval of the feed. 
Last Thing 
If any site owners wanted to restyle the page and upload it to their site I have no problem with that. The only dependency is jquery. It's being imported from Google Hosted Libraries.

I minimized the javascript (by hand o.O) so it's very hard to read but, the concept is simple. I create a yql query for the rss feed, dump it in jquery's $getJSON function with "jsonp" to get around the cross site scripting issue and then loop through the results. In the yql query I dump a garbage time parameter after the feed url so yahoo think it's something new and gets a fresh copy.

And the only reason I just said all that is so anyone that may use this for their site doesn't have to figure anything out. 
Good Episode! 
Much better than the one last week. 
What was your problem with the one last week? 
I spent about 30 minutes completely restyling and reconsidering the entire thing. I also changed the "local" version to be identical to this version.

I'm hoping it's obvious, but if it isn't, you click titles to play/pause the respective cast. 
that's gorgeous 
It's Aiight. I Only Spent 30 Minutes On It 
I noticed a glitch. And I don't feel like fixing it right now. Even though the "play button" is part of the title, clicking it will not start playback. You have to click the word part of the title to play/pause. I can and will fix this but, I want to continue working on my QC editor right now. 
Episodes 7 & 8 
Episode 8 outro iz da bomb yo! These podcasts are great... keep up the good work! 
LOL Dumptruck So White 
Are you guys planning to have sock/mfx on the cast at some point? 
Hopefully, when the next AD is ready. 
For some strange reason i can't listen or download Daz or FifthElephant's episodes.

All the other podcasts i can listen/download. It's working fine... but with Daz or FifthElephant's episodes, when i click the download button it says ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT and if i press the play button, nothing happens :( 
Thanks for the new links, man! =D

If the site is working for you, then maybe the issue is with my temporary internet files, or cookies, or something like this. I will try to fix it...

Btw, i love these podcasts. Thank you for making it :) 
You Bet 
...least I could do for all the videos you do for the community!

In No Particular Order 
-czg (I know this can't happen)
Great list. FYI 4 of those folks have turned us down sadly. No names.

But I've got many of those on my to-do list. 
Do Tronyn! 
I'll make them an offer that they can't refuse. 
Oooh Guess The Remaining 3 Names. 
Given that 1 is sock.

Actually trickier than it sounds as obvious candidates are negke lun czg kinn. BUT I reckon others could have declined due to language barriers... 
is a common language..., 
New Episode! 
Thanks for the work on this podcast guys, only heard a few episodes (not really into podcasts) but it's cool to heard people's voices.

Madfox, ORL, Tronyn, digs, and necros I'd really like to hear from. 
Agreed with Lane, I've never been into podcasts but this is good stuff. I really enjoy hearing from some highly influential and talented mappers and modders. 
Thanks For The Feedback 
Sometimes we wonder how we are doing. Glad you are enjoying it! 
You're doing well!
