For Episode 1, an mp3 version was also posted to the main podcast feed 9 days after the livestream.
The videos are nice, but an mp3 is much more convenient and easier for me to consume. Oh well, not the end of the world.

Oh really? Dang, I wish I would have known that because I agree, the video is more cumbersome to listen to from my phone (fuggin YouTube refusing to play when the phone is locked) and I would have used that audio-only version if I had realized it was there! But yeah, as of right now it seems there's only that unlisted YouTube vid for Ep. 2. Maybe they'll upload it to the feed eventually, who knows.

Listening through Ep. 2 of Trineyvale and I'm definitely getting the same feeling I did during TAZ: Nights where I can acknowledge that this new person is definitely not a bad DM, but it really solidifies just how good the main DM of the group truly is (or maybe just how used to that person I've gotten). I also wish Caldwell would sloooow dooown a bit, and when he stumbles on words, just start again at that word instead of starting the whole ding-dang sentence over!

I feel bad though because you can tell he's nervous He's definitely a better improviser than he is at reading off pre-written scene descriptions.

Now that I've had it for a week, I can't for sure say DropOut is worth permanently subscribing to. They have technically been updating everything, but I can see myself unsubscribing once I've watched everything I want to, and resubscribing later on next year.

Its worth getting for a while though.

I don't see how any of these smaller streaming platforms can survive if they have a paid sub.

VRV is dead and the one before it, despite having a good amount of content. I adore Um, Actually but there's no way I'm subbing for just that.

I wonder how much money Google is losing due to ad blockers on YouTube? If it's common enough, the small services are screwed either way.

Well, Dimension 20 is up to episode 15 on DropOut and Brennan is already talking about taping season two. Caldwell has his Cartoon Hell which is.. its fine. Its really not different enough from Drawfee.

There's also three decent.. I don't want to say podcasts because while they literally are video podcasts, there's only one episode of each at the moment and the site doesn't tell you when things get posted so I dunno if they're getting updated regularly/at all. They might as well be pilots at the moment. There's a Collegehumor general one, a gay one, and a dungeon master one and they're all enjoyable enough, but who's hurting so badly for podcasts these days that they need to subscribe to a streaming platform?

e: also that loving sucks about VRV. I was kinda hoping they'd somehow fund the McElroy's for another season.

Yep. The podcast is now a thing I listen to only occasionally and often skip in favor of other podcasts now that I don't routinely take 4+ hour long one-way drives once a month or so, but I would definitely watch the show. My wife doesn't give one single poo poo about the podcast, but she loved the show.

I'm at the point where I consume MBMBAM and TAZ but nothing else. I don't want to get annoyed with them because I think that their influence has been a net positive on the comedy and podcasting landscape.

is VRV dead? I figured since they were the actual media company who had rights to poo poo like Crunchyroll/Funimation and a bunch of nerd poo poo like Geek & Sundry/Rooster Teeth they were pretty secure. They've been scooping poo poo like that terrible Shudder site that had a bullshit library and some documentary site that has a bunch of garbo looking ones, so I figured they were consolidating a lot of these dumbass streaming things.

yea I don't blame you there, everyone and their mom started a streaming service for a bit and they all had dumb names like "Spoink, the streaming service just for videos of cats jumping off things!" I use VRV just because it's cheaper than subbing to both Crunchyroll and Funimation and gets me some other dumb nerd poo poo.

Trinyvale is streaming again today at 3pm PST.

In related news, season one of Fantasy High ended earlier in the week, so if ever there was a time to get your free week of Dropout, this is it. It came to a pretty satisfying conclusion. Also, Brennan is a communist.

i gave in and did the free trial of dropout to finish watching fantasy high, it's way better than i initially thought

emily and murph are both as good as you'd expect (as is siobhan), but Brennan really grew on me as an extremely committed and positive GM, and ally's fundamentalist christian corn-worshipper in a crisis over realizing she's gay and her god is a douche steals the show consistently

despite being 100% comedians it ends up having less jokes per minute than NADD and everyone really gets into it - i hope they do more and switch to some other format for monetization, it'd be a great podcast or live twitch show.

Advertisers will pay a premium based in where the ad is located. At the end is seen as the worst because it's the easiest to skip.

The ending to the latest episode is fantastic. Nothing like starting a genocide by pulling up some trolls to deal with your fey problem!

Also, super bummed out that Bevís troll-in-a-bowl plan got shot down by Cran as being an insanely bad idea. Which it was, but drat that would have been amazing to see backfire in the future.

I struggle with that as a player sometimes too. It's like, okay DM, you gave us this time limit and this goal, but now you've put this seemingly immovable object in our path. What will we get shamed for harder: giving up so easily on our original goal or picking an unwinnable fight? In most cases it's best to trust the DM in a situation like that, but there's also staying true to your character to consider... So yeah, even when the hints are obvious, it's still really easy to second guess the situation

Murph didn't do a great job of making the turtle compelling.
It was pretty much "You gotta come with me. No reason. You just gotta! Or else!"

If that's not threatening, I dunno what is.
