I'm dragging the Bombcast lake for interesting episodes, and I'm curious if you all have some suggestions or stories about good shows to revisit. I'm a fan of the GB origin story, a la Arrow Pointing Down, and can def suggest that for neophytes. If you like that, you might also check out the "How To Build A Bomb" series on the YouTube channel.

Also, I sometimes play dubstep in the background of the podcast.

Both of my most memorable ones are from '08:

12-09-2008 - The crew have to do a second take of the Bombcast and hilarity ensues.

10-08-2008 - They visit Akihabara on their second day in Tokyo for TGS. Japan being hella Japanese.

Edit: I forgot about 06-03-2008 - Vinny and Brad's first Bombcast and the taste-tasting of Djungelvrål. Classic episode.

7/26/11 - The GG button leads to e-mails throughout the show, magic dog vs magic cat and Vinny talks about making tortillas.

Yes! This one is one of my favorites, everyone should listen to this one! Love the guest appearance by Nintendo's Howard Phillips.

All of the stuff that gets animated is really good. Like the year of Luigi, Skylanders and Vinny playing Darksouls

My favorite episode was the one after Ryan died. It was a time when we were all shook up and confused and the crew came together for a wonderful episode that none of us expected to see happen.

I remember listening to it while playing Forza Horizon with a random duder over the internet as we both listened simultaneously to that bombcast.

It was heartbreaking, heartwarming, and cathartic. It was the first time we really heard from the crew about it in a meaningful way and they shared a lot of stories and emotions. It was a unique experience in all my decades online

http://www.giantbomb.com/podcasts/giant-bombcast-07-09-2013/1600-530/

Out of some 400 episodes, there have been countless entertaining and hilarious shows -- but none more meaningful and touching.

Speaking of which, I was just thinking earlier this week how I had first learned about Ryan's passing when someone made a post on reddit. I read the title and posted a comment about how sick and fucked up the shithole who made such a gross post was. Then, I visited giantbomb and checked out twitter and my heart fell through the floor as I realized it wasn't someone trolling, but was true. I'll never forget that moment.
