After the whirlwinds that were our busy last few episodes, we take some time to kick back and chit chat the way that we always do when we’re on the phone with each other. Except that we had the record button on, which led to a podcast episode.
Instead of a theme and a relatively organized plan, we ramble on about Blizzcon, our current gaming status, buying pets with WoW gold from people who bought them with IRL gold and, more importantly, whether it’s appropriate to hook up with your Twitter/blog followers.
You might notice some music at the beginning of the podcast which isn’t our usual Bond theme. You might also notice a voice that belongs to neither Oestrus nor I. That’s because it’s nomination time for the Stopies!
The Stopies are an opportunity to give a shoutout to your favorite podcasters within the Gaming Community and to celebrate the work that’s being done throughout the Gaming Podcastosphere.
Like our show? Nominate us for a Stopie!
Don’t like our show? Nominate us for a Stopie in one of the less flattering categories! (Hey, I’ve worked hard towards “Biggest Cryass!”)
For more info, check out the Stopcast website and send your nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org before October 16.

Episode 8 is up! We’ve got a record number of guests on the show (at this rate, we’ll have over a hundred guests by the time the show reaches it’s first anniversary) and the energy radiating from our combined forces is undeniable.
Our guests, Fannon, Hydra, Christine and Ceraphus are all new parents, performing a delicate balancing act between their gaming lives and their budding families. They were gracious enough to candidly share their experiences: from success recipes, to trials, to selecting the best flavors of baby formula.
If you’d like to get to know any of our guests better, or if their guilds sound like one you’ve always been looking for, be sure to check out the following links:

We’re back and longer than ever!
The three of us start off by talking about recent news and our plans for 4.2 and BlizzCon, then we delve into all things PVP. We talk about our own experiences, Blizzard’s neverending struggle to balance PVP with PVE, the rivalry that seems to exist between the two types of players and how you too can become a PVP machine.
We top off this special hour and forty-five minute episode by talking about the presence of women in PVP and whether they’re really as underrepresented as they seem.
Don’t forget – you can always listen to and subscribe to the Double O podcast for free on iTunes! Feel free to leave us a rating or a review, while you’re at it!
So you think you want to be a guest host?
If so, we would love to have you! Do you have something on your mind that you would like to hear us talk about or that you’re an expert on? Shoot us an e-mail or send us a Tweet and tell us all about it. We are certainly open to any and all ideas, so please send them our way.

I was seriously tempted to rename the episode “How Horny Are You?,” based on events that occurred during yesterday’s recording.
In this episode, we use an article from Kotaku, “I’m An Anonymous Woman Gamer,” as a starting point to chat about our experiences and opinions surrounding our own condition of being female gamers.
Of course, men are more than welcome to listen as well, and we even offer some suggestions to singletons looking to find a WoW playing soulmate.
This week’s “Thank You” goes out to Fimlys, who saved the day (or night) when the Technology Gods turned against me during the editing process. If you’re listening to a podcast with intro and outro music and a distinct lack of awkward silences, it’s all thanks to him!
On the next episode, as mentioned on the show, we’ll be talking about gaming schedules and gaming addictions with the lovely Lady Erinia from Moments in the Life of a Death Knight as our special guest host.
