Communitoid Episode 001 - It Begins
Oh hi Dtoid community! Please enjoy the first episode of Communitoid. It's a podcast, about the community and other things! We talked about wtf a Communitoid is, stuff we've been played/watched/read this week, Beccy makes the Yanks affect British accents, Mxy forgets that the name of the actress in Jeff Who Lives At Home and Commando is Rae Dawn Chong, Andy professes his love for M. Night Shyamalan's Signs, Jo makes some spam sound classy, we all make fun of how Conor says words... Jeeze, just listen to it already!

Thanks for listening! Follow us @Communitoid on Twitter and let us know what you think! BAZINGA!
Jeff Who Lives at Home is sooooo good. The subplot with Sarandon and Rae Dawn seems way unresolved, but it's a great flick. The Duplass brothers are awesome.
Download on this thing says 6.5 hours. I'll try to get it at home or something.
I have this downloaded. I'll listen to it I swear.
Can't wait (well I'll have to, my iPod will throw a hissy if I get it from anywhere other than iTunes), I'm a filthy whore for both podcasts and the Dtoid community.
I liked that, pretty decent for a first episode.
Listening now, will subscribe when it's on iTunes.
Good stuff, ladies and gents!
Thanks! Please let us know where we can improve, we're still tweaking the format and getting used to it. Definitely want future episodes to be a little tighter, and I need to work on cutting down my "uhs". Sound-wise, any issues you spotted? First time I've edited audio, so I'm still learning.
ALSO: Please send in "Hi I'm XXXXX and you're listening to Communitoid" intros for the beginning of future episodes! Email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. We also have other plans for community submissions including having some of you guys on as guest hosts, so stay tuned!
I want to be on just so I can talk about Jojo's tatas.
Got 35 five mins in so far cycling to work, a good listen!
Seemed a bit too long, but then again I don't normally listen to podcasts so maybe that was just my own impatience with the format.
Instead of having individual segments for what are you playing, what movies have you seen, and shows are you watching I think those can all be streamlined into a "what have you been up to" segment, if you keep 'em at all. I understand that you guys were tying them to Forum threads by keeping them separate, but it stretches things out quite a bit. Plus there was some overlap anyways.
It was definitely a solid first ep, and I can see it becoming really good if y'all keep at it.
Aaaaalso, I didn't re-listen, but did Niero actually say "This is Destructoid Neiro"?
Holly shit, Zodiac totally has a mom voice.
Listening now. Leah Thompson gave me boy boners. Beccy has that accent. I want to go play Baldur's Gate - this is just due to JoMomma talking PC gaming. Nothing more.
Glad people are digging it!
Yay, constructive criticism is what I'm looking for! Show definitely went longer than planned, which is why we started rushing through towards the end. Would liked to have spent time answering a few more questions if we could have. Once we get comfortable and iron out the format we should be able to keep things moving. Ultimately I'm shooting for 1:30 to 2 hours. Definitely need to rejigger the "Whatcha been doing?" block, will probably try just letting everyone go through their whole list individually next time to keep it moving and just mention the threads at the end. Niero actually said "This is Dtoid Niero". He also smacked his lips into the mic before he spoke, but I cut that out because it was just so distractingly sexy.

I'm an hour in. Feedback after I wrap up.
Downloading, and then I'm going to listen to it whilst imagining you are all pant-less.
Weekly segment: Bloodspray half-drunkenly talking about punching people in the face.
But for him, it was every day.
It would have to be a bi-daily segment.
