haha, I tried to rickroll the black friday live show but cheapy hung up on me right after the great set up ;(

aw man Cheapy what a cold hearted douche, that kid was so excited and you hung up just because you didn't find him interesting.

Though I have to admit it was funny.

Just started listening to the download. No offense, but is there a technical reason as to why the audio quality is so horrible? Previous live shows didn't sound like this.

The show was very entertaining. I can't believe that guy actually hunted down Wombat and called in.

And little kids calling in FTL.

Yea I know what you mean.

Cheapy should have done regular recording and done the live cast some other way.

The audio quality compared to other CAG casts is horrible!

Part of why I love the CAG cast so much is because the quality of the show is right up there with the top podcasts and professional radio.

Just something to think about next time.

As I mentioned previously, this was not a regular CAGcast, just an informal call-in show. This will not be included in the RSS feed or on iTunes. It was just a way to fill the gap of the usual Friday show.

It took hours and hours of editing to get the previous live shows audio at the same quality of a pre-recorded CAGcast.

The difficulty stems from the fact that we have two hosts. Because Wombat is on the same audio channel as the callers, there is no easy way for me to mix the audio together. On the previous live shows, I had to work with 3 tracks my audio, wombat's audio, and the callers audio. I had to remove wombat's voice from the callers audio track and then edit all 3 tracks together which was made even more difficult because of the latency. I believe it took me about 8 hours of editing. I don't think I'm too excited (or able) to put in that kind of time again.

We didn't even bother recording ourselves locally for this. I just used NowLive.com's recording of the show, which is at a very low bit rate (24kbps).

If it was just me (or just Wombat) and the callers, I would imagine the editing job would be infinitely easier.

Okay Cheapy. I get it now.

Perhaps you should try some other services next time for a live show. I know it might piss CAGs off, if you keep changing but I'm sure there's got to be a higher quality live podcast site similar to NowLive.com

Oh well I'm listening right now and it's pretty good so far.

Thanks for the reply, recording a podcast seems so easy. Who knew it was really so complicated? That's too bad that NowLive only records at 24kbps; you'd think they'd want their service represented better.

And again, I don't mean any disrespect. We all know you work hard, I was just curious what the difference was.

Man, you could not have spend at least 2 seconds updating the ID3 tag of the mp3 file? That is pretty informal

maybe Cheapy can do a Saturday Live show next time so we can have more international dudes. but it was pretty crazy already with a max of 279 people in the room.

btw, when Cheapy hangs up on people, that's part of the fun. ;)

I am going to listen just beacuse of all the spoilerific GTAIV talk.

I don't want to see anything about the game before I play it.

I thought the GTA4 talk was pretty clean. Very little (or none) of the main campaign was even discussed and only a bit of pleasant side info on the multiplayer was given out.

I'm so excited to hear that people that played it are both quite pleased and amazed by the game.
