The #1 community manager podcast on Dtoid!


Ladies and gentlemen, it's my pleasure to present to you the first episode of the new Destructoid community manager podcast, Communitoid!

In this inaugural episode, you'll be soothed by the sexy voices of European Community Manager Beccy Caine, Forum Admins Aaron "Mxy" Yost and Joanna "MOM" Mueller, Community Monster Conor "Jon Bloodspray" Elsea, and little ol' me as we discuss various community highlights from the week, welcome in newbs, and look back on some of our favorite Dtoid memories. EXCITING!

As the show progresses, we'll be opening it up to include other community members and community-members-turned-staff. Wanna be on a future episode? Send a request to aaron[@]destructoid.com! You can also record your own "cold open"! Just send in a "Hi, I'm [your name], and you're listening to Communitoid!" audio file and we'll make you famous.

Hit the jump for a run-down of everything discussed on this episode, and feel free to give us feedback in the comments! Assuming you like what you hear, you can subscribe to us on iTunes, Libsyn, and Feedburner, and follow us on Twitter! (And here's the direct link to this episode!)
