I've listened to the bombcast for over a year now, and one of the only inside jokes I was too late for, and still carries on, is brad saying "Emails" just before the email section of the bombcast.

Can someone explain when this started and why?

It was from a bombcast in early 09 (or late 08), I don't remember when exactly. Ryan would usually announce each part of the show, but I guess for some reason Brad wanted to announce the next section this time. The next upcoming part of the show was "New Releases", but for some reason Brad yelled out "EMAILS". Everyone else laughed, Brad shamed himself, and that was kind of what started the whole thing. It seems kind of dull just reading it, but it was pretty funny when it happened on the bombcast.

@Dredlockz: I think I found the one described by Church069 if you, or anyone else, wants to hear it. I believe it's the 9-15-09 one. At about an hour and 32 minutes in.

An ancient Egyptian tablet was found buried beneath the Sphinx. It contained hieroglyphics which clearly depicted Brad and the Gmail logo. It was discovered that in order to avoid the Mummy's curse, Brad must recite the Email chant every podcast.

#39 Posted by Dtat (1705 posts) -

He used to always say "Can I do it?" before the emails section, Ryan would say "Go for it" then he would shout "EMAILS!" Then one time he asked, Ryan said something like "Why do you always ask You never have to ask!" From then on he always announced the emails section. Wish I could remember which podcast was the last time he asked. I thought it was pretty funny.

How has this not been locked? Also, don't question it because it will only lead you to go into the backlog to find where it started.

*sleepy Brad* "Emails."

#42 Posted by AlwaysBeClothing (1589 posts) -

If Brad doesn't do it, then NO ONE WILL. IS THAT WHAT YOU WANT? RYAN'S SOLE TRANSITION?

#43 Posted by MooseyMcMan (11950 posts) -

Brad's the only one who can. There's a reason why the Tested podcast uses pre-recorded Brad for their email section.
