Hi folks! The This Year podcast was recently brought to my attention and I thought you all might find this interesting. For those new to it, it is/was a now defunct project that would curate clips from a number of different podcasts and produce yearly "best of" episodes; Giant Bomb being among those featured. There are 11 GB episodes running from 2008-2014 totaling to around 50 hours of content if memory serves. All of the episodes are hosted on archive.org, but that doesn't make for the most user friendly listening experience; particularly if you do your podcast consumption in the car like I do. To this end, I've created a RSS feed of the Giant Bomb episodes and have put it up on Github for easy access. Most podcast clients should allow you to specify a URL to pull from, consult your preferred app for more details. If anyone is familiar with podcast based XML/RSS feel free to make suggestions, I'd like to update things so that modern clients can pull art and metadata in the future.

Disclaimer: I am not affiliated with This Year or Matthew Floratos. I'm just aiming to help folks enjoy some good old GB content.

I was pretty thrilled to find an easy way to play GB content on my TV, but it seems that streaming videos to my Chromecast doesn't produce any sound. I've tried a few different videos and other apps to troubleshoot. Both iOS and Android versions produce no sound when streamed, but work fine locally. Is this a known issue? If it's of any use, it's a Chromecast 2.

Edit: As best I can tell, my Pihole setup was interfering with streaming videos via the app as well as watching them on the site proper. I'll try and isolate the issue and report back.
