Grand Old Podcast
About This Show
This blog and podcast are here because of my love and frustration with Warcraft lore.
I've been playing World of Warcraft on and off since early 2005. Originally as a Dwarf hunter, later became a Troll Mage, later a Tauren Druid, and of late I spend most of my time playing a Troll Death Knight.
On personal level I struggle with learning disability that effects my ability to write. With the help of my wife and Marathanes I'm able to have them look at my work and point out errors I wouldn't otherwise see. My brain likes to skip words, substitute the wrong word and often spell things wrong 'it' and 'is' 'do' and 'to' for example. 'Very' and 'never' would be another example of my problem. Over the years I have gotten better at spotting these mistakes but from time to time I'll look at post that I think is ok then post it and come back a week later and wonder how anyone can read the darn thing. So I ask you bare with me. My wife and Marathanes are good but I'm a fair bit of trouble.
When not playing World of Warcraft I enjoy woodworking, gardening and reading. Nothing overly remarkable but I like it.

The interviews with WOW podcasters are pure Gold
Sayomara's interviews with World of Warcraft podcasters give amazing insight into the pioneers of podcasting.
If you like World of Warcraft Lore he is the definitive source for book reviews. I started listening to this podcast when it was very Lore based and it was good, but when he started doing interviews the podcast turned into something unique and special.
Sayomara has captured some truly fascinating podcasting history. When I started listening to Podcasts, Itunes kept recommending podcasts that had not been updated in years. I was curious about what made these "dead" podcasts so special that Itunes still ranked them so highly. Sayomara has found and interviewed their creators and discovered stories of Success, frustration and betrayal. Often the stories are of "Average" people who created huge fan bases only to rage quit, or just quietly walk away.
I can't recommend the history of Warcraft Podcasting episodes highly enough!

Gives great interview!
I always find this podcast enjoyable. From the topics, to the content and the pace, it's all woven together in grand style - just as you'd expect from the show title. I really enjoy the hosts interview technique, he's a wizard at putting his guests at ease and pulling out interesting anecdotes.
