SnoutCast #3: Story Time

Apologies for the audio artifacts this time around. I forgot to unplug my laptop before recording and had to remove the 60-cycle hum (and harmonics) using a software notch filter. Which is ironic, because I warned about this very problem on the Wired How-To Wiki.

  1. Hi, Blake–

    It's not so much that we forgot about it, but that CKL didn't call it out in the contents. We did discuss the Game, but we're not qualified to make a story judgment. Neither of us played in "Espionage."


  2. Thanks for fielding my question 🙂
    It sounds challenging to GC an coherent original story that teams would actually care about enough to pay attention to. Especially considering slower teams get skipped over clues and there's a constant meta-gaming thought process going on. Most people I talked to say you did a great job with Hogwarts story-wise. Sorry I missed it!

  3. Good stuff, Curtis and DeeAnn! Your SnoutCasts have made my last couple holiday flights go a little faster. 🙂

    Discussion suggestion a future SnoutCast: What is your all time most memorable moment in a Game? Most memorable moment in each Game you played in or ran might also be fun.

    And a possibly stupid question: Is there a way to subscribe to your audio podcast that I'm missing? So far I've just had to download each one independently.

  4. You guys are up to #12 now, but I've been downloading Snoutcast via iTunes ever since it was possible (which I guess is this episode). I'm listening furiously, and hope to meet you soon in the present. I LOVED heading Sean's Old Person clue (beta and the real one with Coed). I played some fro Crissy last night and she plotzed!

  5. Actually, we've been on iTunes for a while, but I may have broken the feed temporarily due to the Blogger migration earlier this month. Sorry about that. Glad to hear you're enjoying the show!
