Hot Spot -Gamespot 
This link includes all the archived shows all the way back to 7/20/2005 available for download. 

Edited out my ignorance, I apologize.

I'm pretty sure torrents in themselves are open for discussion because they do not entirely equate to copyright circumvention, it's the discussion of the downloading (by any method) of copyrighted content that isn't allowed.

Torrents are just another method of obtaining data. I think the crew has discussed torrents on the Bombcast before.

@RsistncE: Just a reminder and I have no idea where to find any Hotspot torrents.

I don't think CNET really gives a flying fuck if you download something that old. 
I say go for it

@PercyChuggs: I always thought trorrents were something illegal, I didn't know. Just trying to help somebody out.

Should have made a gamespot webrip before they chaged the site. Now old links are dead.

Just Use Google Cache and use the hotspot archive to download them!

Now I MUST DOWNLOAD THEM ALL!!! BEFORE THEY ARE WIPED!

@wikitoups: Thanks for this, I thought I was screwed.

@wikitoups: Thank you very much as well! I've spent the past few months listening to them all for the first time, and I was only up to July 2007 when Gamespot redesigned their pages recently. Now I can finish listening to them until Jeff gets fired. Thanks again!

@wikitoups: Did you have any luck grabbing them all, back when you posted this? I've spent the last twenty minutes or so combing through cache pages and third-party podcast feeds trying to find a repository somewhere, without any success.

I knew I should've done this back when I first re-listened to the Bombcast archives. I guess I just assumed it'd always be there when I wanted to hear it.

anyone got the ones from 2005

#18 Posted by ChaosSeto (1 posts) -

I have them all up until the episode where Ryan left GameSpot. Ironically, I just decided to attempt to complete my collection. There's talk of copyright here, am I allowed to upload them if I get the time or not?

@bingeandgrab: Hey did you ever end up getting all those now lost episodes of the Hotspot? I really want to listen through from start to finish again, and its all gone! It makes me so sad:(

hehe, one of my favorite moments was when they brought Carrie Gouskos after Ubisofts announcement of the teenage Frag Dolls, and Jeff is kinda there pumping her up trying to help her but then wanting her to vent about it..
