Our situation with the podcast isn't ideal, but we're aware of -- and working on -- several of these complaints. The broadcast schedule hasn't fluctuated. It's been broadcast each and every Saturday at 3:30 PM Eastern since I took over, except for two shows broadcast early due to vacations or other scheduling conflicts. This happened periodically with the show's previous incarnation too. For the vast, VAST majority of the shows, the schedule has been met. If not, we announce beforehand. As far as posting, this week's show is being posted at the normal time this week's show would be posted -- Monday, just like the past several weeks.I'm afraid that, yes, we're less likely to provide you with cutting-edge stories of how someone ninja'd our Frozen Orb than other podcasts. What we are likely to do is talk about what's on our site, because this *is* the WoW.com podcast, and answer emails. Community-based portions of the shows -- reader emails especially -- take up the majority of the show's running time already, and that's not necessarily a pattern we want to break. It's good for the show and good for the community.But! In terms of audience participation, you're right. I feel like it's been lacking too. It's been particularly difficult for me to do the show on my connection. Living in the boonies is hard, and even with an upgrade from dialup to low-level mobile broadband, my latency is still pretty bad, and running the chat channel affects the latency during the show. It's not an ideal situation and I'm working on it, but I can't promise changes soon. Some things -- like where you live -- are more difficult to fix than others. :) I'm sorry if you're frustrated with the show, or you've lost interest. All I can say is that we're cognizant of what people perceive to be problems with it, and we're fixing what's immediately fixable and relevant. Other stuff might take a little while.
