OotiniCast Episode 100

There’s not much news in the lull before Game Update 2.4: The Dread War drops next week. This gave us an opportunity to celebrate our 100th episode, discussing the show’s origin, how we make it, and a whole lot more!

1. Introduction

2. Tip of the week

Congratulations to this week’s winner, Kal!

3. Trivia question

This week’s question is a Who Am I question: I am involved in only one Star Wars film, yet I have had lasting influence on the series. Before movies, I filmed bombing runs in WWII and helped document the liberation of the concentration camps and the signing of the armistice. I have worked with Alfred Hitchcock and Stanley Kubrick, and even the Beatles. And if Chill had been really clever, he would have asked this question about me last episode. Who am I?

Please send your answer to ootinicast@gmail.com by next Wednesday. Winners will be put in a draw to win a Tawnfaun code, courtesy of BioWare, and an OotiniCast-provided Cartel Market pack from the latest shipment.

OotiniCast Episode 100 — 5 Comments

  1. Hey, Hipp mentions after the gambling discussion there should be a guaranteed reward for cartel pack purchasers. Isn’t that what the Cartel Certificates are for? Although they still aren’t a guaranteed drop.
    Of course, with Hipp you always don’t know if the demand is meant seriously. 😛

  2. Congrats on 100 Episodes!!

    I started listening around 65 and have been a faithful listener ever since. It’s the highlight to my week.

    Many Kudos to you guys for your Consistent High Sound Quality. Thank you Chill especially for the time you spend on it. /salute As someone who uses Audition in my job on a regular basis, I can sympathize with you and Appreciate your Labors. In a Podcast, Sound is FUNDAMENTAL and I’m glad you don’t take it for granted. Respect the Sound and you respect your Listeners.

    Can’t wait to hear Episode 200.

    May the Cartel Coins be with you!


  3. Congrats on the 100th episode! Looking forward to the next 100. I really like how your podcast is available for me to listen to on Friday mornings. It is kind of a jump start to the weekend.

  4. Ootinicast Quote of the Week 100: ‘This is episode 100…’ -Chill during the opening of this landmark episode.

    Congratulations fellas; I’m sure Teo needs a vacation after editing that beast of an episode 🙂
