pvp (podcast versus podcast)

I can’t help it – I’m a “journalist”. A very particular type of journalist, in fact: A critic (the very worst kind). It’s part of my very soul to compare things, even when comparing them is unfair, trite or just plain wrong. You want a thousand words on apples versus oranges? Sure, send me a commission. My rates are quite competitive. Just don’t ask for any kind of scientific analysis. Critics don’t do science. We are the priests of the journalist fraternity. Subjectivity is our faith – and all who question it are unbelievers and heretics. Objectivism is for gods.

Sorry, where was I…?

Err, yeah, so anyway, the first CrovanKinux show has come out (The Drone Bay), making it the second EVE podcast to hit VirginWorlds, and one can’t help but compare it to the now well-established WinterMongrel show (Warp Drive Active), simply because both are from well respected EVE names and happen to be about the same game. A comparison is just begging to be made:

…Yet it’s hard to choose between them in terms of the interaction between their respective cast members. Urb and Blinky work well together because they have the Atlantic between them (they are also the Felix Ungar and Oscar Madison of EVE, but don’t tell them that) . Crovan and his allies have chemistry because between the three of them they can cover the great divide between carebear and combateer, veteran and noob. In such a small space as EVE broadcasting is, it’s a welcome diversity that makes both shows listenable in very different ways. The only downside is that both are just too long for my tastes. I like to give something my full attention (which is insufferable being a miner, let me assure you), so I would prefer both to stay below 60 minutes, but that’s just me. That said, I will certainly be listening in to the next episode of The Drone Bay – before the arrival of which I will be catching up on the last few WDAs that I’ve missed (again, don’t tell Urban, he only tut at me and start fluffing up the cushions or something).

  4. Thanks for the good words buddy. When we started the podcast, it was very important to us that we complement and not compete with WDA. Our is very different, but both podcast provide some good EVE entertainment.

    The one thing we have in common though is that we’re all having fun doing it!
