This blog and podcast are here because of my love and frustration with Warcraft lore.

I've been playing World of Warcraft on and off since early 2005. Originally as a Dwarf hunter, later became a Troll Mage, later a Tauren Druid, and of late I spend most of my time playing a Troll Death Knight.

On personal level I struggle with learning disability that effects my ability to write. With the help of my wife and Marathanes I'm able to have them look at my work and point out errors I wouldn't otherwise see. My brain likes to skip words, substitute the wrong word and often spell things wrong 'it' and 'is' 'do' and 'to' for example. 'Very' and 'never' would be another example of my problem. Over the years I have gotten better at spotting these mistakes but from time to time I'll look at post that I think is ok then post it and come back a week later and wonder how anyone can read the darn thing. So I ask you bare with me. My wife and Marathanes are good but I'm a fair bit of trouble.

When not playing World of Warcraft I enjoy woodworking, gardening and reading. Nothing overly remarkable but I like it.

Episode 19: The Sunwell Trilogy review, Part 4
Sep 28th 2011
And so we come to the end of the Sunwell Trilogy for now... honestly this is one of the cornerstones of the current published warcraft lore, and I hope everyone enjoyed our four episode jounry with Hastuer, Fimlys, and Deathstance. Three very different points of view, reading the story at different times and in different media.
Since Deathstance and I spend almost an hour and a half talking about Ghostlands and related issues I have put the main Sunwell stuff before the require outtro and if you want more after that just keep listening.

Episode 0: The Gathering
May 25th 2011
Welcome to Grand Old Podcast, a World of Warcraft Story Podcast where our goal is to cover all the published stories in the Warcraft Universe.
Amazing I started thinking about podcasts that I would like to make in July of 2009 and started this blog in August of 2009. Idea has come along way since then. Some Author say the longer an idea has to stew the better it will become, others say art is never finished only abandoned. This podcast falls somewhere between those two points. But I will do my best to make it best it can be.
Episode 1: The Journey
Jun 1st 2011
Episode 1 of Grand Old Podcast we give a detailed look at The Journey from the farming conditions of the Western Plaguelands to history of Andorhal. It's a fun show and I hope you enjoy it.
Score: 4 of 5 Stars
Episode 3: How to Win Friends
Jun 17th 2011
In this podcast, I talk about Kharanos, Gnomes in Exile, True Story of the Three Little Pigs, and Aristophanes. It pains me a little bit that I recorded this days before the faction leader story for Gelbin Mekkatorque came out, because I think it would have added to the discussion of gnomes in exile and gnomes living with dwarfs, but so it goes.
Many thanks to the Taverncast crew for letting me use their old intro to start my show. As a long time fan, I'm glad I can continue to highlight their great work.
Episode 2: Day of the Dragon review
Jun 9th 2011
Here on Episode 2 of Grand Old Podcast, I look at the very first Warcraft novel published, Day of the Dragon. In the course of the review, I discuss everything from Deathwing to the role of nobles in the human lands. It's a fun show and I hope you enjoy it.
Score: 4.5 of 5 Stars
Episode 81: Crossroads
Jan 28th 2013
This week is a somewhat sad, this will be the last Warcraft Podcast review put out in a audio format. But never fear I will continue to do post about warcraft podcasting birthdays, milestones, and new and dying shows up on the website. Should also be noted the first episode of my new project will be live tomorrow. And my new part-time Co-host Scott will be making his first appearance one Wednesday. So its a big week here I would love feed back on all the changes coming.

Not going to lie, we don't talk about Warcraft much in this episode, but we do talk a fair bit about Blizzard.
