We got a nice shout on Twitter today from Total Biscuit saying:
I can't wait to be torn apart by - http://undergroundwow.blogspot.com - Finally a blog that objectively analyses podcasts.
That's just about exactly what we're gunning for but it's a tricky road to travel.
For example, Melissa has repeatedly proposed an interview column where she asks a number of questions from a WoW podcaster. Everyone except me seems to think this is a good idea so I've been outvoted 4-to-1. I don't think my objection is frivolous - I've said that if she does one of these "interviews" which are generally going to be positive spotlight-type pieces then there may be an unrealistic expectation that a review of that podcast is going to be favorable as well. And then what happens if we don't like the podcast that particular day? Probably all sorts of e-drama, precisely the sort of thing that might drive us into the Underground Lounge to escape. It's part of the reason I seem to put up a daily disclaimer (which this is in danger of becoming).
Anyway as I riff on the moral implications of engaging in quid pro quo it seems like the perfect place to mention that we do plan to oblige TB sooner rather than later on his request as I believe Fred will be taking in the next Blue Plz! live over at WoW Radio for his Delayed Recall column.
