    hey everyone,

    I figured I'd introduce myself seeing as I'm new on here, I'm Mike and at first I just listened to podcasts, then after spending :banghead:  $330 on the G1 Rhino DVD sets I figured I'd do my own review podcast about the show, the 1986 movie, and the live action films. I've been a TF fan since I was a little kid, and yes I balled my eyes out when Prime Died in the movie. I did have a few TF toys when I was in my younger days, but I had more He-Man stuff, until I was six and my dad told me I was tooo old to play with toys and he sold all of them...... but that's a story for another post.

    The inspiration for me to do the podcast came from me listening to World's Finest Podcast which is a review stle podcast about the entire DC Animated Universe, BTAS STAS Batman Beyond, Static Shock, The Zeta Project, Justice League, teen Titans, & Justice League Unlimited. My podcast will have a definite end date, I really don't cover news on TFG2, but I do cohost on All Things Transformers podcast with my friend Steve/Megatron. And we do get a lot of news from TFW thank you everyone!!

    Currently there are 9 of the 24 regular episodes online, and six supplementals...... I've kinda taken a few ideas from each podcast I listen to and combined them in my own style. I so would love to get an audio interview with Peter Cullen or Frank Welker, but I seriously doubt that will happen, because I doubt they use skype. I'm currently in talks with Stan Bush to have an interview with him, but find a way to get the audio on the episode is proving very difficult. IF anyone on here knows of any iPhone voice recording apps that record both sides of a conversation lemme know! Well I think I've typed long enough on here so I'm gonna end this with my schedule of episodes so everyone knows what I'll be talking about in each numbered episode of the podcast. Glad to be on the boards here and everything.

    WOW 24 episodes is all it will take to review the entire series holy shit..... I may throw a few roundtable episodes in after I finish the series review. Just so everyone knows this schedule is set this is the episode lineup I'll be reviewing. And yes I know there are some episodes that only have 4 cartoons to review I did that on purpose so I wouldn't split up the to be continued eps of the cartoon. This episode lineup is as it appears on the US released now out of print Rhino Transformers DVD sets. Also just because it says Episode 1: Season 1 Part 1 that is not going to be read on-air that's just my way of keeping track of each podcast ep.

    Here's the original artwork and the new artwork :D

    thanks the first few episodes are very very rough but with the new format taking effect in Episode 11 and throughout the rest of the podcast I think it'll be much better if there's anyone that would like to join me on episodes 14, 17, & 19 just send an email with your skype name.... I normally record monday nights that way it gives a week for editing and everything. If there's anyone that wants to join me in these selected episodes of the podcast please make sure you watch the episodes of G1 that will be covered. Refer to the schedule I've posted. Thanks for welcoming me.

    Also for the TFTM Roundtable which is episode 16 I've got a special guest and will reveal who it is as soon as I nail down further details on our schedules.

    If there are any fans on here that want to do a roundtable clip in this episode about the movie, again email me and let me know. The only requirements I have is that you must be using a USB Headset and have Skype. I'd love it if any of the WTF@TFW hosts would like to join in on this.

    Out of curiosity, what's wrong with plug-in headsets?

    Any way you could attach the new podcasts as mp3's to your posts here? I'm tried to download from Predacon Empire a number of times before, but never been successful because of my connection, and I don't do iTunes.

    As far as differences between USB and plug in headsets I'm unsure I just know that most headsets are USB. When I said that I was trying to basically say that you can't use a PC built in mic like the iMac's have because it will pick up all the background noise.

    On the podcast stuff hmmm I'll ask Steve/Megatron who does the posting to feedburner about how to be able to post the links in here. Just a quick note if you see an episode that isn't that weeks episode on the feed Steve puts all the info up early but doesn't make it downloadable until he's edited that particular episode. That's why some of them in the future might not be ready right away. As far as I know getting them through the site should work fine. If you could let me know exactly what it's saying to you I can pass it allong to Steve and we can get that issue addressed. Thanks for the interest, and BTW why don't you do iTunes? Even if it's not to buy music and stuff it's a very easy way to get FREE podcasts :D

    TFG1 RSS Feed
    ATTF RSS Feed
    PredaconEmpire

    the top 2 links are for TFG1's RSS Feed and All Things Transformers RSS Feed where you should have no problem downloading the episodes. The bottom link is for predaconempire.com which is Steve's Transformers Website. Currently as I said on Twitter Episode 19 of ATTF won't be available until tomorrow as Steve's doing the Easter thing so that should be the only episode that doesn't download. Everything else should work fine. :D

    I've been going after this for a while now, but I just scored an interview with Stan Bush to coincide with the TFTM roundtable episode of TFG1. I'm not sure but I think it's the first ever Transformers podcast interview for him. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    It doesn't say anything, the download just stops after I receive a few kilobytes, and when I restart the download it stops again after a few more kilobytes...and again, and again. Until I give up an hour or more later.

    And I don't do iTunes because I don't like things that try to take over my computer along the fact the website takes a ton of my limited bandwidth. Same reason I don't do Facebook, MySpace, or DeviantArt.

    Hey all.... Episode 13 is LIVE and online, however the TFG1 Goes TWIG Interview ep won't be available until later in the day. Just thought I'd update everyone since it's Friday and that's when Episodes come out.... I had an awesome time interviewing Stan Bush. I was really nervous at first before I called him, but Stan is the nicest guy in the world. The Stan Bush Interview will be in Episode 16 of the podcast which is the TFTM movie roundtable episode

    Actually, it seems to depend on the servers. If it was my connection it wouldn't handle downloading WTF@TFW or buffering Youtube videos just fine, but it does. Sometimes it takes a couple refreshes to get Cartoon Network going, but it handles that, too, and other podcasts depending on the site.

    I only have problems with specific sites, those you mentioned included. When I don't have a problem staying connected to the server, it just takes a considerable amount of time to download or buffer, and maybe the sites you use have time limits or something.
