What was the first CAGcast you've listened to?

Just thought I'd start a topic, since there isn't much going on in this forum section.

I was a lurker on CAG since the Summer of '08, and only joined in September. Over the next couple months, I went on the forums for only deals and contests.

This went on until December 24th. I was on vacation in the Florida Keys, but sick with strep throat. I was too exhausted to work, watch videos or browse threads. Now, I've tried listening to various podcasts, but none really stuck for me. When I logged on to CAG I saw that there was a new podcast released, CAGcast #144: Mushroom Clouded Minds, so I listened. The topics were interesting, there was a lot of funny dialogue, and I remember that Shipwreck was on this one, so that probably helped, too. I liked it, and over time I began to listen every week.

Now my question to the members of the CAG community is "What was the first CAGcast you've listened to from start to finish, and what did you previously do on CAG before you started listening?"

Listen to the Giant Bombcast. It's like the CAGcast, but funnier, longer, and with more actual video game discussion.

Around #85 for me. Definately before #100.

I started listening early last summer so around episode 123/124. I have gone back and listened to a few older ones too eg episode 100, 68, 51 and so on.

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it. Don't wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee.

I've been listening since about episode 75. I've tried to listen to other podcasts but, the CAGcast has this particular charm which the others don't :)

I joined in July of 08 for the contests forum. It wasn't until the fall of 09 that I started trading through CAG. I only started listening to the cagcast about 1 month ago (around episode 170) and I wish I started listening earlier!

I can't remember exactly but I think it was sometime in the 80's.

Agree, I try to listen to the cagcast whenever i can but I never miss a GiantBomb podcast.

I started pretty late ... 95-110ish.
But i also miss quite a number of them since then too, sorry cheapy and wombat.

I think my first was somewhere between #10-15. I can't remember if they were numbered then or not I just remember listening and liking it. I somehow assumed it had been going on for a long time but when I went to catch up on past shows it was only 10-15 back.

I'm pretty sure it was the one with Cheapy's wife and I believe Wombat's wife making guest appearances.

144 or 145. After listening to a few I eventually downloaded and listened to all of them. Good stuff.

I dont know the number, but I remember the topic. Cheapy was interviewing one of his friends who used to own a video game store. The big story was regarding the release of "State of Emergency"; how his first (small) shipment sold out quick so he got a 2nd (large) shipment....then the reviews came out declaring the game as ass. Dude took a bath on that 2nd batch as he couldnt give them away.

I've been hooked ever since.

I started at the very beginning. I recently got my girlfriend listening -- she started with 170, and has since gone back to number 1 to get caught up :)

It was early summer 2007, either "And Thorbahn Makes Three" or the one about Nazi Cars in Forza.

I'm not sure, if i had to guess It was like episode 30 or something. I remember i was listening for ages before joining the site and joined after Cheapy and Wombat were guests on Podtoid.

I think it was episode #90, Bringing SASE Back. I wanted a CAG wristband and iirc I had to listen to get the info on it or something, I've been listening ever since.

Too long?

Around episode 17, can't get away without listening to the latest CAG the day it comes out. One of my favourite podcasts for sure

Don't remember, but I believe it was maybe around 2 years ago, but I didn't really follow it after.

I might also do the same thing repete, but I doubt I will.

I remember it clearly because it was the first podcast i had ever listened to
Episode 131.
Although I was a subscriber to cheapyd's youtube channel after he made the DS stylus comparison video.
