For me it was one BC where the guys were talking about the then new Punch Out game for Wii. One of the guys said something about the dude from Microsoft rolling up his sleeve and showing a Mike Tyson tattoo and saying Mike Tyson''s in Punchout Motherfucker! I was at work and almost fell off my forklift laughing so fucking hard.

The time that Jeff called up Ryan to talk about Tiger Woods Gatorade and they decided to record it.

I was a regular listener to the crew when they were originally at Gamespot, so when the first Bombcast's started showing up on Itunes I was a regular listener again. I can't remember what moment made me a regular listener when Jeff and Ryan were heading the GS podcast.

I've been a listener since The Arrow Pointing Down. I can't remember any specific moments that far back, except that I was playing Crush on my PSP at the time and now every time I load up Crush I think of Ryan and Jeff talking about drinks.

I dont remember.....  I started listening around late 2010 and I think I got hooked when I was waiting at the Narita airport in Japan around February 2011.  I loaded up on podcasts before the trip.  We were waiting for the flight to get back home and I was in a sitting area then I heard the whole "Im a wizard and that looks fucked up" which put a smile on my face.  I started to laugh in the middle of an airport in Japan.

Oh shit... I can't even remember. It was sometime mid-2010 when I started listening to the podcasts wasn't until early last year though that I really started jumping into the community on the forum. I've since gone back and listened to most of the older episodes. It is near frightening listening to them talk about stuff and sometimes being SPOT fucking on about things that actually happened!

(slightly vague memory so apologies for any mistakes) When Jeff and Ryan were running The Hotspot from Rich Gallup (who was on holiday) and phoned up the public phone line to check they knew the number (to give out) and then moments later were surprised to see they had a new answer-phone message from a listener to enjoy on the air. It was at that point I went from enjoying my weekly Hotspot to dedicating myself to following whatever these idiots (no offence intended) got up to in the future.

So I was kinda locked in from day one with Bombcasts.

When they were talking about the cereal bar after the Spike VGAs.

@videorob: I really liked it when they piled on Brad and started talking about the Garbage Pail Kids in that episode.

At the time GiantBomb got started, World of Warcraft made me burn through countless podcasts. Always googling for new podcasts, eventually I landed here. The BombCast was just one of many, but it has kept me coming back - and then finally the site was created. And I stuck around.

Also, I was intrigued by Gerstmann Gate, which I became aware of during that same timeframe.

@c0l0nelp0c0rn1: I had never heard of the Garbage Pail Kids before, so I had to go look them up afterwards to understand how funny that was.

@Seppli: I remember being so caught up in Gerstmanngate that I nearly failed my Foucault final. I didn't want to work on my paper, I just wanted to follow the story. #dramaking

Probably this for me too... My earliest memory of the Bombcast is Tiger Woods Gatorade taste tests, so by mere process of elimination...

Well, the first episode I listened to was an E3 episode and all I can remember about it is there being a discussion about a gigantic table they were using. Hooked since then.

I can't remember exactly so I'll just post one of the earlier Bombcast moments I've listened to on Youtube

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=88sRCUcNR7A

That was when Dan Ryckert was on the giant Bombcast at E3 2011 and he told an internet dating story. It was really hilarious and I just started listening to Bombcasts and started going back to old ones.

I don't remember when I started listening to the Bombcast. It was definitely in 2008.

I forget what made me start listening to the podcasts. But I became a member after watching a quicklook compilation that ended with the weird ass pastrick in leather pants playing rock band thing. Between quicklooks and Wii Shop Releases and Neck Stabbings they just won me overtime.

I just found the Bombcast while I was searching through iTunes podcast's list, the cover art was neat so I gave it a shot.

The first "moment" I was privy too was this one.

I was a Gamespot HotSpot listener (RIP) back in the day and after Jeff and Ryan decided to do the Arrow Pointing Down Podcast (Bombcast Beta) I was hooked from minute 1!

Jeffs Duke Nukem rant back in the Gamespot days when 2k gave 3D Realms like $100,000 or some large sum of money to finish that game. And that rant of glorious! I was laughing in the car so hard on the way to Austin with my gf and her family for some summer trip to Austin and its great looking back on it now. Even before that I've been listening since like the first episode of the HotSpot so I just naturally followed Jeff to whatever venture he was going to start.
