Podtacular

Where’d everybody go?

*UPDATE* - Somehow, in another strange turn of events, the original map has returned, with everybody's pins intact. Go figure...

Somehow, our entire Frappr map went missing. Don't know what happened but it's a shame too because last time I checked I think we had like around 250 pins on the map. And then POOF!--it was gone.

So I started it all over again. It's a clean slate now, so get over there and add yourself and represent your part of the world!

Submit stuff for Episode 56: Podtacular Update!

UPDATE: The show has been recorded and it turned out really good. We end up having a long and interesting conversation toward the end. We'll get it published ASAP. Thanks for all the submissions!

------

As usual, Episode 55 has been recorded and is being edited. Which reminds me, Freak in a Box will be doing Pod TV only very shortly, so if you want to edit audio for the show, email me! We're going to do some kind of contest to see who can edit audio the best since we have multiple applicants for this.

By the way, real quick, we need the Podtacular Pro overlords to submit their pick for the Podtacular All-Stars! We have a match coming soon with a certain arch-nemesis. Ok, back to business.

News, Views, Tattoos

Yeah, this is the update show, where we talk about what's been going on this month in Halo and Podtacular. So if you got news, send it in! Maybe it's Halo 3 whisperings, or your friend is selling an elite helmet made out of a paint bucket on eBay, or a tournament coming up, or something with your clan. Just use the submit news and tips link on the right side and send it in. Don't forget to put down your gamertag so we know who to credit! We're also looking for web resources, so if you have a cool Halo site you've seen, send that in too.

Oh, and if you have any Halo or Podtacular tattoos... well that leads right into our next topic.

You know you've played too much Halo if...

Yes, it's back! This topic just keeps on going, people have been sending them in all month. Got a good way to finish that sentence? Send it in with your gamertag. If it's good, we'll put it on the show!

Move it! Send stuff in! That's an order, soldier! Doubletime!!
