On Feburary 8, 2007, Brian, Crispy and Stephen recorded the first test episode of WhatTheCast. Over the next four-and-a-half years we’ve produced many hours of geek-oriented programming. The podcast is older than Stephen’s daughter and Patrick’s marriage. It’s undergone countless changes.
So of course we made the same Zune jokes we’ve always made during our 100th episode.
Crispy and Stephen recorded Episode 100 at the Geek Media Expo 3.0. They discussed GMX, the new direction of WhatTheCast, using Fiber One bars as a measure of how good something is, and the death of Zune (complete with actual Zunes!). Since they recorded next door to the convention’s videogame room, they discussed Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Arkham City, along with that time that game designer Ron Gilbert argued with Steve Jobs about whether videogames could really tell a story. To kick off the next 100 episodes there’s new theme music and a new pixellated logo. Now we just need a new whipping boy to replace the Zune….
The new WTC theme includes the song Pulse (George Ellinas remix), by George Ellinas.
