Scotty and I are proud to reveal the Backlash Podcast.
A biweekly audio and video podcast about Raw Deal and the people that play the game. We're awaiting Stitcher and iTunes approval, so you can get the audio at https://backlashpod.podiant.co/ or watch us on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nm8c0HpThvY

In this first episode we talk about our beginnings with the game, participating in multiple Canadian Qualifiers, some Virtual 8 Superstars as well as some Exclusive Virtual 8b previews among other things.

We also want to hear from the Raw Deal community. Stories, questions, ideas.

Waiting on the okay from Stitcher, was surprised to see how quick Apple was.
I'll look into podbean. Haven't heard of it before. Thanks for the heads up.

Challenge accepted! If we have a guaranteed listener, we'll check it out. Never hurts to have more avenues for users to access the podcast.

Listening now and it's awesome to have this. I always like hearing others thoughts on cards, having people come together and bounce ideas around. And if you're ever interested in doing guests, id make it work haha as I'm sure others on here would too

Agreed, managed to listen to in during a slow morning at work.  I remember Scotty's Sabu stomping, he came down and robbed us of all our prizes, then ran away before we could get a rematch!  :D

Sorry maskedllama, but Podbean is pretty restrictive with a free account and we're unable to get the show hosted through their services. Have you considered checking us on on Youtube, or downloading the mp3 to your phone from http://backlashpod.podiant.co?

Hopefully you were able to listen to it. Because episode 2 is now online! Now with more V8b spoilers.

Was finally able to catch both episodes of the podcast. Very interesting stuff, but I feel like more could be done in this!

Feedback:
1. I think the presentation of the podcast should be improved upon. Sitting in front of a laptop doesn't look nice for the viewer, might consider sitting facing one another, using a phone/tablet to check points would look better and feel better, presentation-wise. Just a tiny gripe.

2. Content-wise is superb. Stories are interesting and some bit of discussion of strategy and gameplay is awesome, but I think it's ramping up on future podcasts so I'm looking forward to that. However, I do want to see more discussion on cards and am hoping to see more of that soon.

3. The "spoilers", although interesting... are really misleading... in some ways. When I see the term spoilers, I expected actual cards and not just vague information on the 8B stuff, because that felt a bit underwhelming. I'm guessing Creed and the rest didn't want to divulge too much since titles/texts/etc can still change but I think the term "teaser" might be more accurate here. But of course, this was because the so-called spoiler section was the main event of sorts in the podcast.

Concluding my thoughts, the podcast was still very fun to watch and the duration isn't super long so I managed to watch both in a single seating. Definitely looking forward to future episodes!!

I see where you're coming from with the spoiler phrasing on the V8b content. The intention wasn't to be misleading, I just happened to have used different terms for the content that we're able to share with everyone.
Creative criticism is always welcome, and everything was well explained. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and I feel I can make some improvements with these ideas.

We've been playing with ideas on how to present ourselves. Personally, I gave it very little thought as I download Podcasts and listen to them on commutes, but it turns out YouTube has by far seen the most downloads/views. Thanks for the feedback!

I'm just starting to listen now, but I'm definitely looking forward to finishing the first three of these and getting more.  Hope you guys can keep this up.

Talking about the Ontario Play qualifier in Podcast 1 really brought back memories - I was there as Back to Basics BFM, and Crasher was there as Team Angle.  Also lost to Evil Dave in the cut, top 16.

Eric, FYI...if you're on those FB groups on a PC or laptop, you can right click on those images, and copy/paste them into word, resize them to 2.5 and 3.5....and viola! you can make a sheet of 9 cards to print :)

Thanks Crasher, I don't use Word and do my card printing with Photoshop. This is something that I'll bring up on the next one for others that haven't thought of this method.

Fair enough, but it might help you get them cleaned up easier as well....also if you don't have access to word you can use this too:

Great little story about open office (the app I suggested), back when Microsoft was making windows XP, they brought in the java people to make sure java worked fine in XP and near the end of the project, they pulled the rug out from java and made their own knock-off, so java went out and got payback and made a completely FREE knock-off of office as a middle finger back to Microsoft :)

That 3-way match was:

Gail Kim+Molly Holly/Team Angle/John Cena

defeated

Ric Flair/Evolution/Shane O' Mac

Clearly one side was making "A-Game" decks, while the other was (mostly) not.  That was the match where

-Evo played Hell In A Cell
-Cena (Anstett) dropped Kill Da Beat despite everyone on his own team being screwed by it.
-Flair got DQ'd on the Cow that revered Gail Kim's cross punches (me, Brass Knucks "punch" deck) and if he hadn't done that he would have been dead that turn anyway (no hand reversals, no Backlash (the card), and Arsenal couldn't touch it).  Leave it to Flair to lay down for the two chicks... :)
-After Flair got DQ'd, we took turns pounding Evolution until they (and their cell) were out, and then we did a team cheer before turning to the Shane player as he cringed in fear.
