Now I'm gonna Enjoy the Silence... and have Depeche Mode stuck in my head.

Edit: Ok, I didn't expect actual silence here.

it's broken~

Patrick should really be uploading these sooner than end of day. It's a feature that's recorded at like 9 in the morning. It shouldn't be a crap shoot whether it's up in time for an end of day commute around 5 or 6 at night. It's those damn other streams he's doing. Before he started doing daily streams at right at the time he'd be uploading the podcast it was even odds of having a podcast to listen to during lunch if I waited until noon to take it.

If he can't do it correctly in a timely fashion because he's too busy doing something he does every other day of the week he should give that responsibility to Alex.

Not that I minded today all that much. At lunch today I had another podcast to listen to and during the drive home I listened to the Soundtrack of DKCTF which is the best Soundtrack of 2014 most likely. I will listen next time I am in car.

Not showing up in iTunes either. Guess I'll just listen to the Bombcast again.

Ugh, I hate it when people make demands of good folks who try to provide us all with free entertainment. There's a human being on the other side with an actual life. Humans have things to do and they tend to make mistakes. Just send Patrick a message saying it's broken and I'm sure he'll try to fix it ASAP.

Jeez.

@jodokus_k: It wasn't that it was broken it's that it's been far later than it has been before he started Spelunking.

Well said. I love the amount of audio and video content Giant Bomb does for free, and gladly subscribe to get the other premium stuff. Now that I know everyone's having the same problem, it's no big deal. It just means I can listen to more later.

@bgfh: I have no problem with it being broken, that's an accident that can't be helped. My main issue is with how late he uploads it on any given day. It's a matter of priorities. Even if it had went up when he thought he put it up it still would've been past 4 PM. It used to be up around Noon before he insisted he needed a daily feature of him playing a single game. This is the point I am making.

If you look at this post and still think I am making a point about it being broken you are missing my point entirely. I am not talking about a single error I am talking about a conscious consistent decision to put off uploading Bombin until later.

@themasterds: I don't like to create conflict within our beautiful land of Giantbombia, but come on, man. I haven't noticed him putting the AM show audio up late, but if he is, so what? If you were mad because he was sitting around fanning Dave Lang like a good little slave boy or some other pleasurable activity, I'd get it. You would have valid grounds to complain like a self-entitled prick, but he's doing other work creating other content for the website. Content which some people actually consume and enjoy. Personally, I don't get into the Spelunkin' and such, but that doesn't mean it isn't something other people love and enjoy. If putting up our live show audio recording would prevent him from doing his other content, then he should certainly do his other stuff.

Either way, this is an ancillary to an ancillary piece of content. The live morning show is the thing. We're lucky they even bother putting up the audio version or archive it at all. Just be happy with what you get, man, and when it gets actually ridiculous, when Patrick is actually slacking instead of working hard on something else (even if you and I don't enjoy it, personally) at that point you should complain. But instead, complaining now, you sound only like a prick, my duder friend. I'm sorry if I sounded harsh in this comment.

@freddiefiasco: If he really can't do Issac after he finishes doing getting the MORNING show up he should give that responsibility over to Alex.

Also for what it's worth both versions go up roughly the same time usually.

This won't download in Foobar2000 either. I can see that it's listed in the raw RSS file but it thinks the last podcast was the 4th.

Posted by Zikar

Guess we can call this the lost episode...

Edited by FreddieFiasco

@zikar: Aside from the fact that it exists in video form and runs perfectly fine there :P

This is fixed. Sorry, guys! Not sure why it wasn't saved.

Yeah, this doesn't make me any less disgusted with you as a human being. You have nothing to demand of someone who provides you with free content, but at least you're not the only whiney kid on the internet who does this, so I guess there's comfort in that.

@jodokus_k: Get off your high horse. Patrick is a professional who wants to produce the best content he can and is payed to do so. He can take criticism. Might very well appreciate it even provided it's not terribly misogynist which my criticisms are not.

All I'm saying is the morning show should be uploaded as early as possible or it stops being a morning show. If Patrick can't do that because he's busy playing then he should have Alex do it. It is a criticism and some suggested solutions.

You mean that show you can watch live in the morning? Like a morning show?

And maybe Alex is even busier than Patrick, so perhaps that's not a solution at all. Maybe there's a technical reason Alex isn't responsible for the upload. I really just don't like the tone in your comments towards the people who provide you with free content. You say 'should' instead of asking 'could'. This all still doesn't make you sound any less whiny/entitled.

@jodokus_k: Oh look yesterday's podcast was uploaded nice and early around noonish. Before even the video version. Someone's criticism was taken to heart or it's a massive coincidence.
