    Podtoid Episode Appeal



    Greetings!

    I'm SpAM_CAN, and I am admin over on the Podtoid Wiki. We are starting an archival project of every single Destructoid Podcast, and so far we've uploaded up to episode 65 of Podtoid, and we will soon be starting to upload RetroforceGO and The Podcastle, branching out to the other podcasts in a couple of weeks.

    However, we've hit a snag - missing episodes. Various episodes, and indeed entire shows, are missing from our collections, and we've scoured the internet without success to find them.

    So, we are calling out to you on the Dtoid forums, can you help us?

    We're missing an embarrassing amount of stuff here. We've chosen the worst time to start archiving this stuff, as Dtoid recently started purging and closing their LibSyn feeds.

    Podtoid:
    Recovered! Thanks to Bob Muir for digging these out for us.

    Turns out Podtoid 019.5 was never recorded. Oh well!

    The Podcastle:
    Thanks to Tarvu for getting us the missing Podcastle episodes.
    Best.Podcast.EVER!:
    Recovered from Mark Griffiths and Whidmark. Thanks!
    BritToid:
    BritToid recovered! Thanks to everyone who donated or offered to donate episodes. Episodes recovered thanks to Panzadolphin56, Adam Andrews and Mark Griffiths.

    BitTransmission:

    Recovered all episodes thanks to Mark Griffiths and Bob Muir.
    If you find an episode of one of these shows then please send them to me at sam(at)elitetreacle.info, upload them here, or add them to the Missing Episodes page on the Podtoid Wiki.

    Thanks very much!

    UPDATE: We think we now have every episode of each of these shows. Thanks so much to everyone who helped in finding these and to Conrad for bringing up our effort on the show. Expect each of these shows to be uploaded (with consistent metadata and filenames) to Archive.org now.



    ARCHIVE PAGES:

    zeekthegeek had most of the early Podtoids on his 4shared page (http://www.4shared.com/folder/SXTYV5Yw/Podtoid.html), but some were incomplete. No clue about the other shows, but I'll mention you're looking for them on the next Communitoid!

    Yeah, that is where we got all our early Podtoids from. It has MP3s for some of our missing episodes, but one is a 2 sec clip and the others are 1 min 30 secs. Thanks for putting out the word (and we are doing a page for Communitoid soon, by the by! Its on the to-do list)

    Yeah, those torrents are long dead (one of the main reasons for the archive effort is that Podcast torrents never stay up for more than a few years). Thanks!

    Where's that Tarvu page?

    Episodes here and here. Let me know when you've taken them so I can quit hosting them via dropbox.

    I think I have most of Brittoid somewhere.

    The episodes that is, not holding the cast hostage.

    I can't even remember with any degree of certainty who was on it. Becca, Jake and Germany?

    I think Becca was only on the last few episodes. I remember Holly being on it and Sean, and probably atleast one Jake. I'm not really sure though, I listened before I really knew who anybody was.

    Please send them along when you can!


    On another note, I updated the main post and now its vanished. I'm assuming it has to be re-moderated. Oh bums.

    You'll be past the mod queue period after 10 posts.

    I'll upload them and put the links here like Tarvu did.

    I'll have to do it in batches though because my connection is terrible.

    The Podtoid Archive is done (at least, for Old Podtoid. New Podtoid will be uploaded sometime soon) and we are just starting on the Podcastle Archive now (the first three episodes are up right now!)

    Thanks to all who helped find the episodes!

    Its no problem. I've wanted to set something like this up ever since the Podcastle feed was replaced by BritToid, but I never had any real way of doing it. Running the Wiki gives me the perfect excuse to get it all off the ground
