Hi team! I wanted to drop a thread here to introduce our podcast, give you some background, and announce new episodes.

@AIESema and I (@MaxTheGrey) play on Jedi Covenant, both Imperial and Republic, as part of the Alea Iacta Est gaming community. Inspired by our favorite SWTOR podcasts, we've started a weekly cast to lightly cover the latest news and mostly focus on a rotating segment covering some aspect of the game.

You'll be able to find new episodes and a show summary every Tuesday at http://www.newoverlords.com/category/listen/ as well as on iTunes and directly on our RSS feed.

Here is our latest episode:

SWTOR Escape Pod Cast 15 – Gearing Up a New 55

This week @AIESema, @MaxTheGrey and Astromech EPC-15 bring you news about Patch 2.5 and drill down with tips and guidance on what to do to gear up that new 55 you have from the double XP weekend. They cover tips on legacy smuggling, commendations, dailies, augments, stims and starting in on Hard Mode Flash Points.

No joke here this week… its fact: The Kessel Run routed around black hole space and the best pilots could skirt the dangerous stuff to shorten the distance! (I always thought it was misuse of distance measures in place of time!)


Thanks!

Episode 8 is now available!

This week @AIESema, @MaxTheGrey and Astromech EPC-08 bring you news formerly classified as super secret, patch note updates, and some news of open spots on an AIE Ops team. We also take prospective home buyers on an open house showing of the charming Dread Fortress.

...and judging by the scene in Nemro's cantina, even if you don't let the wookie win you should go ahead and continue playing. It's just a flesh wound.

Episode 9 is now available!

This week @AIESema, @MaxTheGrey and Astromech EPC-9 bring you news about class buffs and nerfs, and the winter update blog. We also answer a listener question with a holocron about leveling a Sorcerer. Thanks Walrus50!

Oh, and the answer is, of course, ‘lukewarm’! (Unironically my favorite Star Wars joke, which I tell at every opportunity!)

Episode 10 is now available!

This week @AIESema, @MaxTheGrey and Astromech EPC-10 bring you news about Patch 2.4.2. We also bring in a guest, @BruDog, with a holocron discussion on the foundations of tanking.

To be clear: You cannot summon a companion while in an operations group. (They should put in a message somewhere to let you know! Oh, that’s right, they do.. over and over and over. )

Episode 11 now available!

This week @AIESema, @MaxTheGrey and Astromech EPC-11 bring you news on the in-game cartel coin purchase update and details, tips and tricks for power leveling and taking advantage of bonus XP weekends.

And... she's pretty quiet about it and doesn't like to mention it more than once every 30 seconds, but apparently, with the force, Ashara can do "anything."

Episode 12!

This week @AIESema, @MaxTheGrey and Astromech EPC-12 bring you news on the latest patch, and tips and tricks for getting started with space missions.

...and Spacer Juice is what makes those characters jump up and down constantly while in groups. It also causes players to yell "spacebar!" over and over in random Flash Points.
