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.

Armchair psychology: Why we keep playing bad games

“Destiny is the worst game I can't stop playing” I keep hearing this, or variations of it again and again from my friends, all of whom seem unable to escape the jaws of a game they all claim to hate. And you know ...more

Why I love The Last of Us multiplayer, in a nutshell

We're outnumbered, down to our last pair of lives. The clock is ticking, it's as much of a threat to my team's survival as the four armed men bearing down on our position. I don't like our chances, not one bit, but moments like this, they're the reason I play the game.more

I never thought Super Mario Bros. would make me so angry

In a cramped beachside arcade, sandwiched between Galaga and Mortal Kombat 3, sits my white whale. It's surrounded by restaurants, a roller coaster, churro vendors, and a carousel, this sad little Super Mario Bros. arcade cab...more
