We've now seen three of the four main cast (Jeff, Ryan, Vinny and Brad) host a Bombcast in one form or another. Everyone except... Brad.

So my question is this: how many of you would like to have Brad running the show for just one podcast? To get him out of his element. No sleeping for Brad. It's just his dulcet tones asking the rest what they've been playing, reading the news, and then segueing into E-mails the only way he knows how.

This is not a joke topic. I'd really want to see Brad as host for a day.

Sure, why not.

#4 Posted by Milkman (17314 posts) -

That would be a disaster so yes, I would love to see it.

I don't know about on a permanent basis, but I'd love at least one episode with Brad behind the wheel.

#7 Posted by AndrewB (7689 posts) -

Already regretting putting in the option for Vinny as the permanent host. It's skewing the otherwise 100% yes ratio.

#8 Posted by CptBedlam (4457 posts) -

Sure , why not .... but Ryan is the perfect podcast host already so everyone else hosting the Bombcast would be a step down.

Here's how it would go:

"Emails!"

Fin...

#10 Posted by NoobSauceG7 (1253 posts) -

It would be all emails and sleep so why not haha

#11 Posted by NegativeCero (3039 posts) -

I think it would be painful to listen to. Especially when Brad, without fail, is sleepy during the Bombcast. So yes, I would.

I'd be down for this

I want Vinny to host the Bombcast where he talks to the other four Bombcast members who are also Vinny.

Oh man, that's either my dream scenario or a crazy nightmare.

I want to see Brad punch a horse.  Bonus points if it is a pretty horse like an Arabian or a Palomino.

When did Vincent host one?

#17 Posted by Mikemcn (7018 posts) -

The evil brad hating cabal will never let that happen.

He hosted the Mass Effect 3 cast the other day. An offshoot that might not quite count, but I'll allow it.

#19 Posted by Demoskinos (15141 posts) -

Well, we all do love car wrecks right?

#20 Posted by GunnBjorn (2911 posts) -

Ryan is indeed the perfect host. He keeps everybody on track in the BombCast. Jeff is a good second. Vinny was fun too. Brad, on the other hand... No offence, but I think he's just not the type for that. He seems very comfortable with his lateral position within the GB crew anyway. But sure, I would love it if he hosted the BombCast for once. Should be interesting.

#21 Posted by theodacourt (546 posts) -

I'd love to see that train wreck once. It would just be people getting on brad's back and I'm pretty sure it will never happen. I really enjoyed the calmer podcast last week without Ryan. It was great as a break, but I'm glad it's returned to being rowdy this week.

#22 Posted by Hosstile17 (768 posts) -

Back in the day, after Rich Gallup left Gamespot, Vinny was the host of The Hotspot. He was pretty great at it.

#23 Posted by scarace360 (4828 posts) -

i wanna see brad host a emails only bombcast.

#24 Posted by rawrsair (821 posts) -

Sure, but I like Ryan doing it.

How the fuck would that work? Podcasts don't have a video component, as I've found out by staring at the podcast itself while it was playing. (This is actually how I listen to podcasts...when I listen to them, obviously.)

#27 Posted by Bocam (3822 posts) -

I want Vinny's brother to host the bombcast

#29 Posted by Captain_Felafel (1602 posts) -

I would, but Ryan is both a felicitous host, and Brad would probably fall asleep half-way through hosting. xD

#30 Posted by Mr_Skeleton (5154 posts) -

I'm afraid of changes.

#31 Posted by JackSukeru (5964 posts) -

I think Ryan is great as the host, I also think it's occasionally funny to have Jeff host the podcast, like a week ago.

Vinny was the host of The Hotspot a while if I recall, it didn't really make them any more or less magical so I see no reason for him to host.

I say sure, mix it up and put Brad in charge for a week, it'd probably get entertaining.

#32 Posted by mscupcakes (612 posts) -

I'd prefer to see Matt Rorie!! Show the Bombcast some puppy love.

#33 Posted by evanbower (1216 posts) -

I want to see Brad do all things. All of 'em.

#34 Posted by AjayRaz (12476 posts) -

i don't think he would be suited to do that, but it would be interesting for an episode to see how he does.

#35 Posted by Toxin066 (3326 posts) -

I must hear a Brad-hosted bombcast. FOR SCIENCE.

#36 Posted by ajamafalous (12147 posts) -

I would rather Jeff become the host, because whenever Ryan's not there the Bombcast is significantly better without him constantly ending tangential segments that are way funnier than whatever's next.

#37 Posted by kishinfoulux (2509 posts) -

I actually love Jeff as host because he don't give a fuck...lol. I'd like to see them rotate. And they need to cut out new releases because it's not really needed. That gives emails a bit more time.

#38 Posted by liquiddragon (271 posts) -

yeah! they should all take turns!

#39 Posted by the_OFFICIAL_jAPanese_teaBAG (4284 posts) -

I think it would be great if Brad hosted for one show.  Im probably one of the few people here that thinks that hilarity would ensue...

#40 Posted by august (3866 posts) -

Only if they got him hopped up on goofballs.

#41 Posted by Daiphyer (1352 posts) -

I still want the Caravella family podcast!

#42 Posted by jewunit (1064 posts) -

I think Brad would be a perfectly competent host. I just don't think he has any interest in hosting.

Yes please.

#44 Posted by NTM (7542 posts) -

Only if he wanted to. I really couldn't care less as to who does it as long as they all chime in and give their opinion on the things they're interested in. I don't avidly listen to the bombcast's, but still.

#45 Posted by Little_Socrates (5715 posts) -

I only protest the dismissal of Patrick as a main cast member. He's not going anywhere any time soon, and will only become more dominant as Jeff and Ryan eventually sit back at some point. I agree that Ryan is pretty much the perfect host, though, and also would be up for hearing Brad or Patrick host.

#46 Posted by AuthenticM (3803 posts) -

Yes! Even back at GameStop, Jeff, Ryan (I think) and Vinny all hosted the Hotspot when Rich was not present. Everyone except Brad. He's never hosted a 'cast in his life!

This needs to be corrected.

#47 Posted by SoothsayerGB (1468 posts) -

Only if there are turkey sandwiches.

#48 Posted by TeflonBilly (4713 posts) -

Only if it ends up like one of the more disastrous of his Quick Looks and he gets lost and fumbling and then it all goes to dead air.

Then it returns and Brad is cursing out the sound board controls and the mics.

I love you Brad, but sometimes you seem to be at war with technology

#49 Posted by Wrighteous86 (3823 posts) -

I wish Jeff took charge a bit more, and split duties or took turns with Ryan. Ryan's good at getting down to business, and Jeff's good at allowing fun to grow, like in the pizza/dry ice mailbag. Vinny is great as a color man, so I think having him take the lead more would force him to be more more... structured and "responsible". I don't think Brad has any interest in hosting things, and he's better as more of a straight-man, fact-checker, contrarian every-man any way. LIke Brad, Patrick is perfect where he is, as long as the topic is one that interests him.

Only if he did it in the style of a not-so-hip AM radio jazz show host.
