Let me be the first to welcome you all back! I can’t tell you how excited we are to be back, and I’m posting today to make a few introductions and to answer a couple questions I know are floating out there.
So, let’s start with the question that I know is everyone’s mind:
Why am I not listening to LBR:R Episode 1 right now?!
The answer to that is simple… it’s coming! Our goal is to provide a higher class podcast than the original LBR, and to this end, we are actually going to have a recording studio! We’ve had a couple delays moving our equipment out of Norg, and we’re running about a week behind where we anticipated we would be by this point. That said, we’re still hoping to have episode 1 out in October, but if not, we’ll definitely have some other content out to you…
Which leads into the next question: What the hell am I supposed to do until then?!
Don’t worry! Just because the first episode of LBR:R isn’t out yet, doesn’t mean there won’t be anything on the site! Our hosts intend to work on their own projects (both text and audio), and will post them as they come out. More on that later in the post!
Okay okay, I guess I can deal with that. So who’s hosting this thing?!
We’ll be running a three man hosting crew this time round, and without further adieu, here they are!
Hosting the show will be Aniero Grigori, the voice of Final Fantasy podcasting. He’s based off of Sargantanas server and runs warrior as his main job. You all know him as the host of the original LBR, and he says he’s looking forward to melding the classic formula in with an edgier new-age model to provide the best FF entertainment on the internet.
Co-hosting will be Eskalia Ryumasa, making his return to the network where it all began. His main job is Dragoon, and he’s based off the Balmung server. He got his start hosting Voices of Vana’diel on the original LBR network, and looks forward to skipping company events with the excuse of having to podcast. When asked to describe his ideal podcasting experience, he replied “It should be an orgy for the ears.” The interviewer reportedly refused to ask anymore questions.
And continuing the world’s longest, least-fulfilling, and most certainly unpaid internship will be Juxtaposition! He’s a Paladin based off of Sargantanas server and likes getting caught in the rain. He reminds us that he’s still the best, and is quote “Still awesome.” After a successful run on the original Limit Break Radio, he looks forward to bringing his brand of fun and excitement to the new show. None of us are sure what that means, but we’ve updated our vaccination records just to be safe!
What’s the motto for the show?
Good or bad, we’re going to say what we want, when we want, about who we want. If they don’t like it, tough.
That seems a bit extreme…
Your mom seems a bit extreme. Get over it.
And how often do we get to listen to you guys?
We’re not yet certain how often we’ll be producing episodes, it’s just not something we’ll be able to pinpoint until we dive in and see what kind of time commitment each episode is going to take. What we can tell you is that whatever we decide on will be a regular schedule. There will be a set day that episodes come out so you can always plan your LBR fix well in advance.
Why should I listen to you guys instead of some other FF based podcasts out there?
Because we’ll actually be entertaining.
Is it too late to apply to be a host/guest/intern?
Guests were a large part of the original LBR, and we don’t intend to cut them out of the new format. While our static crew is now assembled, we’ll need guests for certain episodes and events. Once we have things up and running, look for further posts on how you can apply to be a guest.
Didn’t you mention something about other posts on the site earlier?
Oh yea! Our goal is to have content posted to the site regularly, even if it’s not a new episode of LBR:R. Eskalia is planning on a weekly editorial, and more things will continue to pop up as our hosts get settled in. We all work full time, but will do our best to keep content fresh on the site.
How can I contribute to the show?
Ah yes, this is an important one. At launch time, there will be no “Starbreakers” equivalent, and we will NOT be accepting donations. This may change down the line, but for now, it is our goal to provide the best FREE entertainment we can. If you really want to give a donation or contribute, we cannot thank you enough for your support, but please keep your money. The best way you can help us out is to help the site grow. Go to your linkshell, your friends list, your facebook, your twitter, anywhere you can help promote us and spread the word that Limit Break Radio is back! If everyone brings in two new listeners, it wont be long at all before we have the the largest (in addition to already having the best) community out there!
Should we still send e-mails and what not?
Hell yes! We’ll still read e-mails on the air, and a couple of our planned segments are going to require your input. If you’ve seen someone do something outstanding, send an email and let us know and they may get a special shout-out on the air! On the flip-side, if you’re witness to someone making a gigantic toolbox of themselves, send us a screenshot and they can be held accountable! We’ll have a number of segments and a variety of ways that listeners will be able to interact and participate in the show. Just make sure you’re following us on Twitter and Facebook and keep an eye out here at limitbreakradio.com for the latest news and announcements about the show.
Well, that’s all the information I have to pass along at the moment! Please keep and eye on our facebook page as well as our twitter page for more information and hopefully soon, the release date of episode 1! We’re so excited to be back, and look forward to entertaining you all for years to come. Until then, peace out.
