Are you a Podtoid listener? If so, thank you. We love that you support our silly and almost pointless podcast.

But how long have you been listening to Podtoid? Since the early days? No, I'm not talking about last year or anything like that. Hell, iTunes' listing of Podtoid only goes back to late 2008, starting around episode 76 (we're on no. 272 now). I'm talking waaaaay before that. 

Me? I'm a fan, and it honestly has nothing to do with me being the Editor-in-Chief of Destructoid. I've been one for forever -- since it was brand new. And way back in our earliest days I was even a part of it. I appeared on several episodes, but mostly did the recording and editing.

Back then, I'd write original music for the introductions to each episode to keep things fresh and fun. Not to pat myself on the back, but sometimes my song was the only saving grace for these podcasts. If you've been following us since our beginnings you exactly what I'm talking about. Some of those shows were, at best, train wrecks, and at their worst, liabilities. 

Last week I found some of these intro music recordings. The oldest of them are from 2006, which is just crazy to me. I've picked out a few of them for your listening pleasure. They're not anything special, but they bring back good memories. I remember laughing so hard during the recordings that I'd find myself crying.

That all still holds true today. The cast has changed so many times (Nex, Summa, Aaron, Colette, Ron, Anthony, Topher, and many more), but the heart of what Podtoid is still has stayed true. Keep up the work, Podtoid team. Again, I'm a big fan.

Enjoy the tunes.

Now's a nice time to buy a Wii U: Here's everything you should know

Even if you must play all the Hot New Games, you don't need a PlayStation 4 or an Xbox One to do so until 2015. Enough of them are still releasing on PS3 and 360 this fall. The rest, on PC (and, for some of us, handhelds).  With the recent release of Mario Kart 8 and the upcoming release of Super Smash Bros., you might consider buying a Wii U, though. more

Smash Bros. 4: Hopes, Fears, and Predictions

When it comes to writing about Smash Bros, I'm a control freak. If Destructoid goes more than a day without posting about the series, I get impatient. Smash Bros is actually a big reason why I got started here. Back in 2007, ...more

Weekend Playlist: Summer Jams

Summer is officially in full swing and most of you are probably sitting inside and playing Destiny. I dont blame you though, if I had a PS4 I would be doing the same exact thing. For those of you who maybe want to pretend you are outside enjoying the nice weather, I have created this playlist of happy summertime jams.   more
