'Good show, sound and tone good too, well done.' by FarScapeIII

Good show, sound and tone good too, well done.

I like also how you talked about leaving EVE, and I happen to be going back to it, I think it is interesting what people think of especially MMO’s. So I guess you can’t afford it right now? I would of thought is was because it takes so much time to invest to actually enjoy it. I hope you will talk more in depth about EVE next time if you can and what you do and don't like about it even if you can't play now.

But of course I got an EVE character at 20mil skill points, some how getting through the looong haul. But yeah I have to cancel MMO’s to be able to test and play other MMO’s because I can only afford 2 at a time. Right now mine are EVE and Tabula Rasa.

The other stuff you talked about was cool too, I am looking forward to you having more guests too.

I like what you said about politics but I don't care for it much after I know what they are about I do not need to keep talking about them either, I do like the way it keeps them some what accountable though when they do something other then what they promised. Good for you getting involved in the voting process too.

Just a few comments about the cast I don't think the swearing fits in with the other podcasts. Using the F word in your show notes isn't gaining you any listeners either. It seems all the other podcasts are clean. I am not sure if the content is interesting enough for the listener. It seems like it would only be interesting to your friends or family.

Brent, I think you should maintain a solid lineup of casts and not just go for quantity. This one just doesn't seem to have enough about what people want to know - gaming! This podcast would be better suited to live on a Myspace page.

Sorry but someone has to be the voice of reason
Don't hate me because I'm honest

OMG He was in the Friend Zone. No way out of that hell.

Your 2nd show was very good. I think I like it? I know I should not. I don't know you at all. Never did GW ,but yet I sit here at work and listen to your life. By the way ,from what you talk about ,I think you are more like the rest of the gamers out there than you think you are.

Look I don't know why I listen you don't talk about any game I play ,and you talk of a life that is not mine and yet I know I will listen to the next show...

Good Show ,Alik Steel

...this one (#2) however, has made me a fan. I am not sure why I feel there was a difference between the two, but in my little mind, there was. I look forward to hearing the next one.

I also listened to your Addicted gamer interview after this one (only one of the few I had not caught of that show) and I hope you do stop by Norrath at some point and check out EQ II.

@ telstar - Brent does pick quality over quantity. Trust me, he turned my offer down so he must! lol Granted, this show is not going to appeal to everyone, but that does not mean it does not belong here as part of the collective.

Lady S. you might be nobody in the real world. But in podcasting your a star.
I would love it if your show was on mmo's. But there's a million of them.
I enjoy your cigar recommendation of the Onyx reserve. It"s hard as a novice to cigars to know what is out there or even any good.

This is my first post. But I listen to several podcasts on virgin worlds. I am a big fan of Guild Wars and I listened to your segment word on the street in the Guild Cast Podcast often. I sure hated to see Shawn close down that cast but I can understand. I think your second episode was great Lady S and hope you keep up the great work and I agree with blacktemplar1 your a star in podcasting. I wish you luck on your future in podcasting.

'Great show' by Adamfast

Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the latest podcast - it's something totally different to the stuff I normally listen to and it's great to listen to such a wide variety of topics.
There's something intriguing about listening to your life and it feels like I'm having a conversation with you, albeit one-way. It's just a great podcast and I hope you carry on with it as it compliments Ringcast perfectly in my opinion.
Oh, and the chicken/veg soup sounds good too...

Oh, and swear all you want. If you're going to do a podcast that's about yourself then being yourself is essential. Swear, fart, quote Monty Python, offend Republicans or Democrats or the entire human race - I don't care! Just be you!

Sorry but i have to say this is the least entertaining podcast i have encountered on the collective. Truely awfull.

'Why?' by AlikSteel

I do not under stand why some of you feel the need to say that you don't like this show. IF you don't like it .I am sure that is fine. Just don't download it again. There is a few show's in the collective that I don't like ,don't under stand why othere like them. I just don't go to the show's and say "hey I don't like your show's plzs don't do any more". What is it with this need to go and tell people that you don't like them or there show. please go find you a nice little forums some where and bash away.

'wondered the same' by Brent
Submitted on 2008-07-11 01:28:00 CST
Alik Steel... I wonder the same. For example: I don't watch Wheel of Fortune. I don't watch Gossip Girl. I don't watch Saturday Night Live (anymore). And yet, I've never felt the least bit inclined to contact the producers or stars of those shows and tell them to stop what they are doing or change it. I simply do not watch those shows. Not for me. Others clearly enjoy them. So be it. Does any more need to be said?

Yes. I find Lady Sinaea's show (much like the Another Here podcast) to be refreshing and entertaining glimpses into someone else's experiences and perspectives. The fact that I know the hosts a bit better than some might have something to do with it, but I do not think that is the whole story.

All that said. Everyone is entitled to an opinion. And everyone is bound to have a least favorite show in the collective. I'm sure various people feel that way about each of the podcasts.

Indeed people are entitled to thier opinions. If people were to only hear positive feedback what would be the incentive to improve. If this individual desires to have the best show she can possibly produce then let all opinions fly! Just my thoughts.

Great editing and good content. More gaming content next time please, unless you've got some sort of hidden agenda.... =)

Love the sound of your voice. You've got a great podcast voice and it's always a pleasure to listen to you.

Looking forward to show #3, ... and #4, .... and #5...

Nice to hear something that is a little different than the typical podcast on this site. Keep up the good work and I look forward to future shows.
