I'm up for it. That podcast was the most interesting of the expo podcasts (with the exception of "NEVER!") for that year.

I thought she was interesting. So what if she was drunk and you found it annoying that's what all women are like when they're drunk. ; )
I liked her, I even sent her an email of support and apologising for some of the arseholes on the interwebs.

Agreed. It really bothered me how last time the community had to be a bunch of whiny douchebags about the whole thing.

Yeah, Ryan's reaction when she said that was priceless.
 
 
Anyway, it seems to be consensus that she was one of the worst guests the Bombcast has had if you see the comments on that particular podcast. Yeah, I don't think I'd want to have her on again if she was that disruptive.

I was going to ask about this. I wasn't part of the community then, but I've heard people reference on the boards that it was annoying time after her appearance. What happened?

Read all about it my future instalment of Notable Moments in the History of the Giant Bomb Community. Basically she got drunk while doing the bombcast.

If she's on another bombcast, I'm not listening to that bombcast. Both, her voice and her attitude are just unbearable. It's torture.

I'm going to be non-conformist to this thread and say that we should clone her, then get both her and her clone drunk, and then have her and her clone have a conversation over the whole bombcast.

Basically she was invited on by Brad, got drunk and rambled about Nazis / MGS4 / MMORPGs etc, and then all hell broke loose  on the forums because NO MEMBER OF GIANT BOMB STAFF HAD EVER DONE SUCH A THING. Then after five or so pages of "how dare she interrupt our beloved GB lords and masters!?" the moderators came in and locked the threads.

You know that scene in Jaws, where Quint scratches his nails down the chalkboard to get everybody's attention?  And they're all like "OH FUCK MY EARDRUMS FEEL LIKE THEY'RE ON FIRE!!  PLEASE GOD MAKE THE PAIN STOP!!" ?  It was a bit like listening to that, but on a loop for two hours - and then at the end, when you can't take anymore, they tell you the shark has just eaten your pet dog, Pippet, which you've raised since it was a puppy.
 
So I mean, sure, why not?  Everybody deserves a second chance.

It's not what she was rambling about, it's how she did it. She was so full of herself (I'm not talking about alcohol) and her voice is not really podcast material. In fact, it's one of the most annoying voices I've ever heard. I actually had to stop listening every few minutes, that was the only way I could get through that bombcast.
 
Sorry, that's my honest opinion. I'm sure she has other qualities.

Yeah, I saw her post about that. Maybe its because I've haven't heard it in awhile but seriously, when I first heard it, sure i was kinda annoyed about how she talked about everything but hey, people mess up once and awhile and her messup, to me, was not taht pad.

nooooo. She really typifies one of the kinds of game journalism i really don't like. She writes articles about the psychology and metaphysics of games and not about gameplay or whether games are actually fun.

Same, dude. It takes a certain amount of courage to expose yourself, especially your actual identity, so fully on the internet and all she happened to do was accept an invitation to do a podcast after a few drinks. Hell, I'd have done the same but been a hell of a lot worse.

Stuff like that is not what the bombcast is about. Bombcast-time is feelgood-time, not be-overly-pretentious-time.

Yeah, she apologised about it on her blog only for listeners to leave some charming anonymous comments, this being one of the classy ones: 
 
 So if anything it'll be worth it just to watch people cry about it some more.

Since 1 up yours died the bombcast is the only podcast that talks about games intelligently. I'm not saying hire her, just that it would be nice to have someone like that on the podcast for an episode or two. Hell, I don't even know who she is or what she's like, I'm just going by what supermarius said.
