Hypothetically, say a member of the podcast wasn’t on the episode. Say he said “Literally the only time Tuesday I can’t record is between 9 PM and 11 PM, so if you record literally any time other than that two hour window, I can do it.” and then the group recorded the podcast without him. Say another member of the podcast did one of the worst impressions imaginable of that person. Would it or would it not be the douchiest move ever to expect that person to make the show notes and upload the episode he could easily have been a part of if the group had made the smallest possible concession and avoided the 2 hours in a 24 hour period he was busy? Is it weird that this isn’t new, but that person had something going on at that exact time nearly every night for the last year and all of a sudden it’s a conflict now?
You probably want to know what happened on the episode. I don’t know. I wasn’t there.
Hey, guys, my name is Eric. Look, this is a little bit awkward. I got a Skype call from Ryan, Marcel and Jason this week and they said “Don’t do regular show notes, instead tell everyone we’re doing a vote to see if Corbin is getting kicked off of the podcast.” They insisted they were serious but it sounded like they had all been drinking. I heard what I assume was Ryan and Jason high-fiving each other. I tried calling them back to see if they were really serious and they’re not picking up. I have like 10 minutes for them to get back to me before I have to submit the shownotes and if I don’t hear different, they’re going out like this. Anyway, if this was a prank and the guys get a lot of e-mails saying to kick Corbin off the cast, this wasn’t my fault. I’m just a guy helping out for a chunk of the Patreon money. If you’re reading this, they never got back to me, or I guess they were serious when they said to do the show notes like this. Either way, I really hope I don’t get fired, this wasn’t my fault. – Eric, the show notes guy
Are you sick of Corbin Hosler? Here’s your chance! If you don’t want him on the cast anymore, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. If you say something that is funny, not mean-spirited and is readable on the cast, we may read a few.
I don’t feel good about this, but I bet no one reads shownotes anyway and we’ll be fine. – Eric
Corbin is missing. We assume an old country road, a dog and a pikcup truck is involved.
New set, new cards! Taste it!
E-mails are read. E-mail? I don’t remember if it was one or two. Give me a break.
It wasn’t planned. If it had been planned, it would be extraordinarily uncool of the gang to not let everyone in on the gag. No, it wasn’t planned, but the cast is becoming fathers. Did any of the pregnancy talk make it into the episode? Will we have a sweet After Hours soon? Who got their significant other pregnant and who didn’t? Who picked the most basic Magic name for their kid? What does any of that have to do with the price of Jace in China? I don’t know – I just write the show notes.
Craig Wescoe is a pretty good guest. He’s a deck brewer and a member of Team Ultra Pro. He is the foremost white player (white deck player; don’t bring race into this) and he’s a financier to boot, writing financial review articles for each set on TCG Player. You want to hear what he has to say about stuff? Of course you do. He’s not into Demon Cats, by the way. I don’t think I am, but I can’t rule it out. How do you really know? You have to look at a bunch of pictures of Demon Cats and maybe you’re like “Huh, that’s my thing now, I guess. Awkward.” I’d say “awkward” is a bit of an understatement, but that’s me. Why don’t you listen to Craig’s interview rather than looking at weird Demon Cat pictures on the internet, you sicko?
