Like Fronz, last week I was a guest on a podcast for an interview about all things Destructoid which, in retrospect, serves as a pretty good FAQ for people that don't know the history of the site (it was originally a scam to get into E3). I get questions about this all the time, so if you're curious we also talk about how we acquired an ex-Joystiq writer P. Diddy, how a blog that came out of nowhere is getting a Wii early (Summa also works for Metro NYC, they kill 2 birds with one stoner), and how we've come to reach a readership of 1.5 million readers a month, etc. It's all in here ... with the exception of how to build the robot helmet. You're on your own for that one! I didn't get a chance to verbally thank all of the contributing writers who have been with Dtoid from day one on that show, so I'll update it here: Fronz, CTZ, Kuri, Kayka, Ocelot, and Faith -- we wouldn't be where we are today if it wasn't for you guys to begin with! Ok enough shameless self-promo, hit UncleGamer.com for the show.
