Once upon a time, there was this podcast called Robochode. Then it died. Then it came back. I'm not very good at telling stories.
For people that weren't around the same time as Robochode (which is understandable since the last episode aired nearly 2 years ago), it was a couple of dtoiders shooting the shit about random things in science and technology. Binary Chode is exactly that. Half the cast of the original Robochode (ZP and Bloodspray) will be making their return. The rest of the cast will be filled out by an old man, a lady, and yours truly. At least two of us will be slinging back a couple of drinks.
We will be recording our first episode tomorrow at 9:00 Eastern Standard Time. The control freak in me did plan out a list of topics, but the lush in me is very prone to derailing and forgetting. Even though we have a list of things to talk about, we would love to get questions from you folks as well. If it's something vaguely sciencey, we'll probably try our best to answer it. You can either post questions in this thread, e-mail questions to binarychode AT gmail DOT com, or tweet us at @BinaryChode. And while you're at it, follow the Twitter account. In addition to taking your questions, we'll probably tweet random shit we find that you'll find interesting.
The first few episodes are going to be us getting our bearings, but we should at the very least have a link to directly listen to the podcast. We're going to figure out how to get iTunes/RSS capabilities eventually. Baby steps.
They must be cutting down on the payroll for SWTOR now that its income is really suffering. I wonder if EA will give Bioware (Houston? Somewhere Texas sounding) another job if SWTOR doesn't prosper now that it's FTP.
