We (hopefully) ease ourselves back into something that may, perhaps, resemble a regular recording schedule. Blame me and my erratic life!
Oestrus and I talk about our time together in Milwaukee, including our hair washing habits and how the first thing I did when I reached her place was shed my clothes. Yes folks, she’s that good. At least her shower is to someone who just spent three days on a Greyhound.
I go on quite a bit about my trip, offer some insight into the World of Backpacking (WoB), and, so that it has some sort of a connection with WoW, I share some secrets about the wonderful gaming friends I got to see face-to-face. If, at any point you wonder who I’m talking about, here are links to the bloggers that I met:
We then wrap up 4.1, talk about our experiences during this tier of content and brace ourselves for the excitement of 4.2.

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.

This week (or should I say “this episode” since we record bi-weekly) we’re thrilled to welcome Codi, former paladin theorycrafter from Moar HPS! and all around super fun person.
We get into the business side of gaming as we talk about the state of Blizzard’s subscriber count and the more prominent issue of online privacy and security (inspired, of course, by the recent Sony debacle as well as Trion’s efforts and Blizzard’s own Real ID fiasco). Our business heads Codi and Oestrus also teach me a few things about targeting an audience and marketing strategies that may be shocking in the progressive sense and the less progressive sense.
We also establish that if Oestrus were a booth babe, I would totally take a picture with her so I can Sin to Win.
You can now get your Double O fix on iTunes! You can also leave us reviews, ratings and all that good stuff!
Got a WoW Topic you’d like to talk about?
A few people expressed some interest in hanging out with us for an episode. We love getting new ideas and hearing new voices, so we’re very excited at the idea of having more guests on the show. Our episodes tends to be focused on a different, specific topic, so if there’s something you know a lot about and you would like to share that something, let us know!

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.
