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 69: Review of Crew Skills in 3.0!

This week @AIESema, @MaxTheGrey and Astromech EPC-69 walk through the good, the bad and the ugly of crew skills in 3.0. There's quite a bit of good and we walk through the updates, but there are also still some quirks of the system that linger in 3.0. We also cover news for the week from SWTOR in general and from our guild, Alea Iacta Est.

On Jedi Covenant, find Max playing as: Imperial (Max'z, Mhax, Mhaxs, Mhaxz) Republic (Maxz, Maxxz, M'axz) and Sema playing as: Imperial (Maurienne, Enne) Republic (Semaperdu). AIE guild information can be found at http://aie-guild.info/swtor


Thanks!

Moving our podcast episode update thread here from the fan site forum since this seems like a better home for it.

Thanks!

SWTOR Escape Pod Cast 17 – Reputation

This week @AIESema, @MaxTheGrey and Astromech EPC-17 bring you news about Life Day and the Return of the Gree. We also offer up some quick tips for the week on Galactic Starfighter (like how to re-order your ships and why you shouldn't focus on kills) and we crack open a holocron on the basics of the reputation system.

Oh... and laying ceramic floors on ice planets is a tough job because it's difficult working in a Hoth-tile environment. (We fully apologize for the quality of these jokes. We'll see to it that the writer is promptly sacked.)

The reputation tools and links referenced in the podcast include:
The maximum weekly turn-in chart: http://www.newoverlords.com/calculat...rep-maximizer/
The cumulative rep tracking spreadsheet: http://www.newoverlords.com/calculat...on-calculator/

SWTOR Escape Pod Cast 18 – Two Year Anniversary

This week @AIESema, @MaxTheGrey and Astromech EPC-18 are joined by @AIEMachia to talk about the two year anniversary for SWTOR and AIE in SWTOR. We also offer up some quick tips for the week on Galactic Starfighter and, of course, cover what we have been up to.

And… Life Day is pretty much just like the Rakghoul Pandemic but with snowballs exploding in your face for prizes instead of other players exploding in your face. Oh, and a bit less vomiting.

http://www.newoverlords.com/swtor-es...ions-for-2014/

This week @AIESema, @MaxTheGrey and Astromech EPC-19 talk about what the future might (but probably won't) bring for SWTOR and AIE in SWTOR in 2014. We also offer up some quick tips for the week on Galactic Starfighter and, of course, cover what we have been up to.

Dangerously inaccurate and unsubstantiated rumor of the week: Hutt mounts are coming in patch 3.14.15.926.5

SWTOR Escape Pod Cast 23 – Rakghoul Event Review

This week @AIESema, @MaxTheGrey and Astromech EPC-2-3 discuss the latest Rakghoul event and talk about some of the hidden and special elements that you may have missed. We'll also talk about our opinions on it and predictions for when and how it might return. We also cover our quick tips for the week for Galactic Starfighter and, of course, talk about what we have been up to.

Dangerously inaccurate and unsubstantiated rumor of the week: Jeelvic the Jawa is actually the source of the Rakghoul plague outbreaks and is using them as a business opportunity.

SWTOR Escape Pod Cast 24 – 2014 Roadmap Discussion

This week @AIESema, @MaxTheGrey and Astromech EPC-24 bring you a futures discussion based on the 2014 Roadmap blog post. We also talk through the Q&A from the Phoenix Cantina Tour meet-up and cover the final details on the patch released today.

Radical speculation: Given how much the new KDY Orbital Lifter looks like it was based on a submarine research vessel we are quite sure that the next planet coming this year will be a water planet!
