Joel Cain pulls up a chair to talk Oblivion and Amazon’s plan to take over the world… Of shipping. Joel (Duggan) finally cracked Man of Steel on blu-ray and has some royal Internet picks to share.
If you happen to be one of the few people who have been catching The Citadel Cafe on YouTube, I will not be posting the show there for the foreseeable future. We have run into some internet overage fees due to exceeding our bandwidth cap the past two months. The monthly cap is 250 gigs. Overage fees are billed at $1.00 per gig over the cap. We unfortunately do not have access to another internet service provider at our address. So, we are left to trim the fat on our usage. While I like being able to share the fun episode artwork associated with each new episode of The Citadel Cafe on YouTube it is not important to the overall content of the show. It was just another option for our listeners and potentially a means of snagging a few new ear holes. However, The Citadel Cafe will continue to be produced as an enhanced podcast (MP4) which will display the related episode art and link to the show notes page via compatible podcast apps, like Downcast.
Thanks for listening!
For any of you long time listeners, you’ll remember our Winter is Coming Countdown from last years lead up to our talks on Game of Thrones Season 2. We’re big fans of the Game of Thrones franchise here at The Citadel Cafe and we plan to continue our weekly chats every Wednesday when the new season starts. Heads up folks, there will be spoilers! We figure three to four days is enough time to give people to catch the latest episode.
While we are re-watching season 2 to refresh our brains on Westeros, we’re not going blow-by-blow on the show. We will kick off the Winter is Coming segment on Wednesday, April 3rd at the usual time, 8:00 PM Eastern barring any schedule blips that week.
If, gods forbid, you haven’t seen Game of Thrones, get on that! While you watch, you can go back and listen to the Winter Is Coming Countdown which started on Episode 5 and the season 2 talks that started with the season 2 premiere on Episode 15.
Both Paton and Joel are swamped with other responsibilities this week and weren’t able to find the time to record. We will be back with Episode 23 on Wednesday, June 6th @ 7:30 Eastern. Our guest for Episode 23 will be Garrett Weinzierl, host of StarCast: The Starcraft Podcast and This Week In Blizz. Garrett is also a huge Game of Thrones fan. With Season 2 of Game of Thrones coming to a close on June 3rd, we thought we would do a special season ender episode of The Citadel Cafe and cover the last three episodes of the season. For a quick recap (Careful of spoilers!) follow the links below.
Don’t forget, we record the show live! So swing by the stream on Wednesday and toss in your two cents on Game of Thrones season 2. If you can’t make the live show, feel free to send us an email or tweet.
See you on Wednesday!
