CAGcast #634: How Wombat Really Got His Name

Hey guys!


Had to make a new account because I lost my old login info, but I've been listening to the show for over 10 years.  I even used to wear my CAG "live strong" bracelet to high school everyday.  It was funny to hear you guys talk about your college days with "VHS and chill." Anyway thanks for the years of laughs and here's to 15 more! :)

Hasn't Wombat shared the origin story of his nickname before on the show? Or do he and I just share a psychic connection?

Great show, as usual, though Cheapy was in a weird mood, lots of rape talk and coming down hard on Ship for being totally reasonable and responsible during the pandemic.

Congrats on making 15 years!

Maybe bring on members from the start? I joined year 2 I think, in 2016.

I think there should be a new segment of the show where Shipwreck talks about ska music. Just my 2 cents

BTW for trivia night.
What episode of CAGcast did Shipwreck make his first (brief) appearance?

Answer: Episode 10.

I was really excited to hear about a new Big Titty Anime Ladies game! Then I thought it unwise to research it. I’m too old to have that in my search history.

Great show guys!

i don't know to what extent he was joking, but Cheapy sounds like a f'ing imbecile encouraging people to take fewer precautions in stores.


Please keep in mind that ours is a nation where people drink bleach because an orange moron said so.

Great show as always. I love Snake-Eyes as much as the next GI Joe fanboy, but even I doubt he would survive against all four Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Regarding the castle feature, I was thinking of the word "parapet."  I would not mind winning a free mouse, as the Lenovo MSU1111 mouse that was bundled with my older computer several years ago went berserk not too long ago. I replaced it with the mouse (which I still had in the packaging: Lenovo SM50L21560) that came with my newer computer. Unfortunately, every time I move it, it emits a high pitch sound, which can be very annoying.


P.S. The outro song is not the Astrocade commercial, but a remix of that "I Wonder What's Inside Your Butthole" song that caught attention online.

Might be a little biased, but I just can't get enough of Wombat's college stories.

Hi guys!


As always, I love the show and it's definitely one of the highlights of my week, especially in these times.


I've heard you all praise your Mack Weldon Ace Sweatpants time and time again on the CAGcast, so I decided to take a look at them for myself. With us being in quarantine for the foreseeable future, I thought splurging on a nice pair of sweatpants would be something worth investigating.


I guess the question I have for you guys is, have you actually bought a pair of those pants (or their underwear, I suppose) yourselves? Even with the CAGcast coupon code, one pair of sweatpants is still $60+ and I don't think I've ever spent that much on any pair of pants for myself, let alone sweatpants. That's a lot of scratch to drop on a single pair of lounging pants...


It's hard to ignore how much you guys love them though, so I'm seriously considering it.


Do they really provide $60 worth of comfort!?


Thanks guys!

Keep up the great work on the show!

Wombat, you mentioned a few episodes ago you started to play the division 2. Have you played any more of this game at all and what are your thoughts.

Will any of you be downloading the new Scooby-Doo film "Scoob!" to watch this weekend?

I don't know if it's specifically what Cheapy is looking for, but I've listened to every single episode up until about 6 months ago twice. And then all the new ones since then once. I'm a UPS driver and sometimes I run out of content pretty quick and I don't listen to too many other podcasts or radio shows. I did this the first time so I could learn the show, see its evolution, find when Shipwreck joined permanently, and for the stories. The second time, I did it to distract me from the ongoing divorce I was going though. It really gave historical context and value, learning about the games, the consoles, your opinions and what you thought of other people's opinions. I've bought older games because of this and taken advantage of deals from Thorbahn on newer deals. The anticipation of seeing when Wombat would FINALLY get to go to E3 to now how it's not as interesting to him. I was happy for him we he got his PS3 birthday present. Oh and Cheapy and Ship really, really hurt his feelings a couple times, especially after E3 one time when they teased him about his dining etiquette and when Cheapy forgot Sabrina's middle name after she was born. And whatever happened to the guy who stripped in Cheapy's apartment in Japan and then ran the streets and got arrested? The pizza truck guy. Cheapy said he had an update on that but had to wait till after his move back to New York. Anyway, it took a few months even though the first hundred episodes or so can be deceivingly short and give you confidence that you can finish it faster. Here's the link I used:


I've tried listening to other gaming podcasts, but I'm such a casual player, that a lot of what those other shows say can go over my head or just plain bore me with tech data or specs and jargon that I just don't care about. I hope they keep up the good work, and I'll continue to listen and encourage others, as well.

I loved hearing your Frat stories. I ended up pledging two different fraternities before just forgetting the whole  thing. 

The first time I pledged the guy who was supposed to be my pledge father/guide/whatever started selling cocaine and dropped out of school, so I never completed the requirements. 

Next semester I changed schools and eventually started helping with a startup like frat, and everyone there really thought I knew what I was doing. I knew I didn't so I guessed if they thought I didn't maybe I could do alright. Then I failed out because of a concussion. Apparently I was misled by movies and you can't get into a frat if you legit fail out of school. 

The guys I knew from fraternities were a perfect reflection of the rest of campus. Some great guys, some jerks, and the rest relatively unremarkable. With the exception of frat guys generally being better connected to what was going on in school and having networking advantages. 

Anyway - enter me into the contest if it isn't too late!

It isn't in Mono already? Mono is a great idea for folks with bandwidth issues. 

Great show.
You might want to resample the podcasts in lower bitrate mono to help people streaming over cellular.

If it makes you feel any better Cheapy, I remember discovering the CAGcast a year or 2 after it's start. After a while, I decided I wanted to listen to every single episode of my favorite podcast, only to find I had to listen to the first chunk in my mobile browser, without locking my phone. So I'm sure there's someone out there with those same feelings. Hell, I might revisit some old episodes myself now that they're more accessible.

isn't there an app where you can listen to all the episodes? why is cheapy trying to get all the episodes in the apple podcast feed when they are all available in his own app?

Another great show guys! Good to hear you talk about college and fraternities, its been years since you talked about that. I remember asking about what fraternities you guys were members of in 10+ years ago and you guys answered. 


Do you still have shirts or other swag from the fraternity life? I've got a few sweatshirts and fancy mugs most of it in storage. 


Also was Mrs. Shipwreck in a sorority?  


Keep up the good work.

Another great CAGcast. I was very entertaining learning Wombat's origin story.

My question would be: if you were able to see your lifetime video game playtime, what do you think your top 3 most played games would be?

Thanks for taking the time each week to entertain us.
