The TR Podcast: Help us celebrate 100 episodes

If you’re a regular listener of the TR Podcast, you’re probably aware of the fact that our next episode, set to be released this Sunday night (the 13th), will be our 100th. We have a variety of ideas for ways to celebrate such a milestone, but due to all the usual reasons (each of our key editors slaving away at secret reviews and pulling record all-nighters), we’ve had to postpone any elaborate plans for celebration. In future episodes, you will likely see some belated commemorative extras, but for our recording session for episode 100 tonight, we’d like to keep things simple and hear from you, the listener.

If you have any thoughts, questions, memories, or other such fitting milestone sentiments that come to mind, please post them in the comments below before 9:30pm ET this evening when we record. We’ll use anything you submit as fuel for a short celebratory session to kick off the episode. Otherwise, you can expect a good ‘ol fashioned session of PC hardware reviewed, just like always.

    could be a sign or portent but broadcasting the 100th on not just the Sabbath but the 13th could be disastrous!

    don’t walk under any ladders, break any mirrors, watch out for black cats.

    get the episode blessed by a few priests prior to broadcast and keep them handy & prepared to perform an exorcism is things go awry.

    good luck 🙂

    p.s. can’t believe it’s been 100 episodes, feel like I must have missed a few.

    I have been listening since the beginning. I think my two favorites were when David Kanter was a guest and when you talked about fireworks, store bought and homemade. A lot of times I wish you guys had more time to talk about things. Why limit your time?

    amazing show. you guys explain tech in a way that is both legitimate so that complete nerds are satisfied and in lamen so that lesser nerds such as myself can participate.

    I love listening to you guys. Thanks for the insightful response to the questions I’ve asked you. I appreciate listening to you guys even if it is mostly rehashing things I’ve read to death on the site :). Sometimes there are some real gems that I catch listening to you guys that I might miss in an article. Especially your reactions to the big trade shows.

    As far as suggestions for the 100th show… The big thing that always sticks out is Geoff’s reactions to any Apple product… That and the coverage of Duke Nukum, and everyone reactions to it. Reading the coverage gave me one impression. Listening to you guys gave me quite another.

    Keep up the good work.

    A few things:

    After all these episodes I still get confused between Geoff’s and Scott’s voice–could one of you talk in a high-pitch squeal from now on? Maybe it will make up for the lack of any feminine voices.

    I really enjoy the commentaries for back stories or a dumb-down tech explanation, I think you fellows do a good job at putting things into perspective.

    I always like hearing about what games you are currently obsessed with and why.

    Keep up the great work!

    Oh…and you need to get Fox on there more often. 😉

    Well, I just wanted to say that I have been a regular listener for at least 50+ episodes now. It has been fun and I have learnt quite a lot. Congratulations to everyone involved and special props to Jordan!

    And one small complaint: 100 episodes and no Ronald Hanaki. I vote for Mr Hanaki to make a cameo for this special podcast. I hope he agrees to this humble request 😀

    Questions:
    1. Speculations about the future of AMD given the recent layoffs and other changes? Will they exit the enthusiast CPU and GPU markets?
    2. Which is better: peanut butter or cheese?

    How about speeding up the editing???
    3 days is a lot of time and putting shows up Sunday night at 12 / Monday morning in Europe, meaning no nice Sunday entertainment for everyone in the EU.
    Oh yeah, and make it a weekly show.

    Ps. and please dump the teenager from the show that always brings up Apple and his PS3! LoL

    I will admit i haven’t followed all podcasts from the beginning but i enjoy them nonetheless. I would be interested in hearing a discussion about other aspects of life, like vacation destination, thoughts on new science discoveries (that are no tightly connected to PCs) like the development of celullosic bioethanol which holds the promise of eliminating the cereals shortage and so on. Maybe some heated discussion of BF3 vs MW3….i’d actually love to watch some game play of you guys playing as a squad 😀

    Maybe something about your favorite guests you’ve had on the podcast? I don’t remember them all, but there have been some big names. Who was the most fun to talk to? Who provided you guys with the best discussion? etc..

      The TR BBQ has to be mentioned, maybe with a plan for some audio from the BBQ next year :).

      Wow. Checking the notes on the first Podcast, here is what stands out:

      Microsoft offers to buy Yahoo for $44.6 Billion

      Hyper-Threading to be revived

      Also, Jordan’s note before the 2nd podcast of “I’ve been trying for the past week to get friends and listeners to start Twittering, so I thought I would explain what Twitter is and why I use it……”

      How time flies.

        Of course I thought of the BBQ as well. People need to know about gleek, frobozz, and the walker incident… There are a lot of years worth of BBQ antics to cover.
