The Quakecast
A new podcast celebrating video games, Quake and the games it inspired. Your hosts are ArrrCee and dumptruck_ds. The first episode is just a chat between hosts but upcoming guests include Ionous and Joshua Skelton. More to come!

Hosted on Podbean and available on iTunes.
This reminded to upload this awesome intro from the old Quakecast from the nineties. Also, thank you for not using RealAudio for the new Quakecast :)

thats gold 
"You're Our Best Soldier" 
uh oh 
I loved it!

Please give me more =D 
Excellent Work! 
Listened to it on my way to work- great stuff! Looking forward to hearing some guests and seeing where you guys take this. Looking forward to more! #tightywhities 
RC and dumptruck, I like that! Thank you 
@dumptruck good start to the show! Always takes a couple episodes with this kind of thing to get a rhythm going, but looking forward to more!

@metlslime wow that was amazing, my coworkers are giving me looks wondering why I'm giggling :P 
Nice work Dumptruck and ArrrCee!
Looking forward to the next one. 
Yeah Good Stuff 
Thanks for the shoutouts to TB! I’ll definitely tune in for more in the future. 
loved the podcast

good job dumpstruck and arrcee 
Love The Voices Btw 
arrcee sounds like a professional radio host and dumptruck sounds like a cheese grater ;-) 
Not played the addon packs, comfirmly multiplay,
my singleplayer borderline aches!
Good chat anyway.

discordSetup is no no valid win32 application.
Now I'm logged in the refrigerator. 
One Hour Of Rambling 
discordSetup is no no valid win32 application.

If you have phone with an Andoid/iOS, you can try mobile app. 
And a good ramble it was! Long may it continue.
discord can run through a web browser too 
Future episodes have better interviews. ArrrCee and I were getting to know on another. 
Yeah I enjoyed the ramble. It dpes seem like you guys cleared out most of the low-hanging fruit from the chat-tree, so I'm curious to see where things go from there. 
Loved It 
Badass podcast guys, I'm excited for the future! I was inspired by dumptruck_ds connection to the original Quakecast to upload the only surviving full episode to youtube. The mp3 was saved thanks to Quaddicted, and photos are by Wendigo. Check it out: 
Cool Podcast! 
This is my new favourite podcast. My now second favourite podcast is the ”Misfits“. That one is about some Youtubers from New Zealand getting stoned or messed up in some other way.
I'm really looking forwards to what guests might appear. I'd love to see Daz or some guys from AD on QC. Maybe even Sandy Peterson or Romero himself?

This is the reason I'd love to see Sandy! The video touched into video game design a bit, but didn't do it final justice. It's a cool interview for his tabletop game design stuff, though. 
Nice Start 
I would have laid out a bit more plans/goals for what you want the show to achieve, maybe guests you want to have on and different topics you want to cover etc. 
Don't want to make promises we can't keep. But we have a list of ppl we want interview for sure and it keeps growing. And FYI our first too guests are from the US as the logistics of time zones is a factor. I'm future episodes we'll move over to European guests. 
Right, I'll wait for four PM in the morning. 
New Episode 
Good Job On The Podcast! 
Had a blast listening to it! There was something going on with dumptrucks audio, I suspect some bandwidth problems. I wish I could help, but have no knowledge on Discord call quality.

Didn't Ionous' 1024 craze start with Der Wanderer auf dem Säuremeer? That was an awesome metal map! 
Thanks. Indeed it did. It rather unlocked what one could do inside a confined boundary. 
We Don't Use Discord 
for interviews. I know what the issue is. We'll have it sorted in future episodes. 
Now On ITunes! 
Subscribe and get that sweet auto download every Thursday. 
Now On Pocket Casts 
I took the liberty of adding the 'cast to Pocket Casts (very easy actually, just submit the rss feed on their web form), which is my app of choice for listening. Don't know if anyone else uses this app or not, but hopefully it helps someone new discover it at least :) 
A Boon For The Community! 
Listened to the first episode a few times while cycling to work. Pretty surreal to hear both ArrrCee and dumptruck on the same podcast.
The Quake Grave and dumptruck's mapping vids are such valuable parts of the Quake community, and I believe that the Quakecast is going to be yet another pillar.

Thank you so much. New episode with Josh Skelton of Quake tools and Delver fame will drop Thursday.

We're recording new episodes this weekend. 
Episode 3 
WInXp don't wants dischord. 
Nice nice loading this up while mapping! :) 
what are you working on? do share. 
Episode 4 

This podcast is a lot of fun, I can't wait for Thursday already. 
Episode 5 
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!

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.
