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
