As many of you know, next week will be the 500th episode of the Bombcast. We were hoping some of you might share your favorite Bombcast memories with us! If you let us know what you remember from episodes of yore (hopefully including an episode number (and a timecode would be amazing)) we are going to see if we can cut something together in the future as a kind of all-time highlight reel. I don't think we have a timeframe for this (it may take some time as we're heading into the busy season over here) but it might be fun! Let us know below if you have any suggestions!
I made this thread awhile ago about my favorite Bombcast episodes and some ppl chimed in.
Here are some of my favorite GBC moments! (sorry not timecode...)
This clip is from the 11/24/09 edition of the Bombcast.
This clip is from the 3/23/10 edition of the Bombcast.
This clip is from the 01/19/2010 edition of the Bombcast.
This clip is from the 4/06/10 edition of the Bombcast.
Oh boy, there's so much. Thankfully, great Youtube duders have archived some of them, so I'll link those.

I'll let other people with better citation handle the other many, many memories.
This is an all time favorite that comes to mind: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vszY9hnYnEc - Giant Bombcast really life (and hate) food
others may have metioned but check out Myggen Myggen's Youtube channel...
thepunishert is great too for a lot of really funny older stuff
I'll be posting some favorites here in a bit
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I42SIjVWzvA - Itchy or Damp
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BJRPsphVUNw - Is Taco Bell Food?
Also anything from the early 2014 Australia Beef, Shit bandit, and science beef saga is just golden. I think it was around March of 2014.
This next one would is a close runner up I think. It's a perfect representation of how well these 4 bounced off each other. 3/23/2010
I immediately thought of these four moments.
1. Jeff talking about Blitzball/buying 3 versions of FF X in one night. 08/12/14 Starting at 15:30
2. Dan's egg white story. It's from 2014. I can't find which one, though. I found a YouTube Clip https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZveytjmGWT8
3. Jeff learning that you can stack fruit in Animal Crossing. 06/04/13 Starting at 1:14:00
4. "Capcom is making a new video game, ya'll." "...No they aren't!" 08/12/14 at 2:48:15
I wish I had a timestamp or episode number, but I don't. I just remember when I first started to become a fan of GiantBomb and listening to an episode where Vinny talked about his home renovation and how he had a... sewage accident. It was just a really hilarious moment and made me fall in love with the atmosphere that I feel GiantBomb has cultivated. Just a bunch of friendly people who like video games, but also do other stuff too and sharing that is just as fun.
I don't have a reference (hopefully someone can help out with this), but I love the moment where Vinny went all the way and said the word *potential for offense here!* cunt , and it blew everyone else's minds.
Golden moment! :
I have gone back and listened to these so many times over the years.
Weird Websites (5/1/12 first few minutes):
Hot Dance 98/Block Rocking Beats (6/11/11):
Big Dog Pitbull (3/29/11):
There's so many of them and most are on youtube, which is great. I'll be back here with more, but for now I'm going to leave this one:
And, of course, the mythical "Australian Beef". There's a fantastic supercut available but the whole "beef" became so complex to the point where even the supercut is long:
I go back and listen to the Terminator movie conversation every now and then, it gets me every time.
Dan asserts that Terminator 3 is better than Terminator....which leads Jeff to retort:
Eventually Jeff says "Jesus CHRIST, Dan." in the same way one might call out a frenzied genocidal dictator who'd gone a bit far.
It's classic stuff.
I have a folder with a bunch of Bombcasts saved and renamed for my favourites... though many of them are less 'moments' and more running gags or repeated jokes throughout an episode. But here's some (dates as in the filenames):
The earliest I think I have is 040808 at 1:04:37 - A brief bit of energy drink action, but it's mainly "my sister takes the non-frosted strawberry poptarts..."
04-16-2013 from the start - "Tuesday actual" - Vinny's comedy causes Ryan to restart the podcast, but Jeff sabotages it.
082509 at 1:26:38 - Who can forget Peter Molyneux's Balls. Might be unusable though...
111313 at 12:48 - Mario's musical Wahs are sucking out Jeff's soul.
120809 at 13:09 - Watch out for civilian casualties when dropping those F-bombs.
121812 starting at 1:32:48, but more the end at 1:37:20 - email discussion of ghosts vs werewolves, but Ryan shuts Jeff down when he claims he would be a 'friendly ghost'.
this entire rant on pennies from 1/17/12 remains one of my
also from the same episode- SOPA/PIPA. and STORAGE WARS/INTO THE WORMHOLE WITH MORGAN FREEMAN.
There are so many. Sorry I don't have exact timecodes but here's a couple.
From 02-08-2011 "I'm a wizard and that looks fucked up"
From 05-22-2012 Discussions on whether you would eat a friends leg if they were cool with it.
