Hey, guys. I'm Jason from The Ice Box Podcast. Travis, my co-host has been busy lately, and so he has resigned from the show. So now I'm looking for a few good people to help me get it back up and running.

Here's some criteria:
1) Voice: clear, with good grammar and diction
2) Knowledge: able to remember card names and abilities, have well-informed and reasoned opinions of cards and their interactions.
3) Passion: be excited about the game, its news and community, and sharing the experience.

Bonus criteria:
4) Humor: helpful in keeping the show very light-hearted, fun, and entertaining.
5) Creativity: able to help provide content for the show, either for unique show segments, fan art/designs, or anything else.
6) Competitive spirit: at least one member who knows the tournament scene and the top cards and strategies in the current meta.
7) Enthusiasm: willing to attend events and give reports.

Preparation stuff:
1) Recording: have Skype, and have the means to digitally record yourself.
2) Hacker name: Have an awesome hacker name in mind. That's part of our flavor here at The Ice Box.

That's something to go on. If you're interested in joining The Ice Box, then I encourage you to send an email to theiceboxpodcast@gmail.com or a message to our facebook explaining how you meet the above criteria! Then I might try doing some casual Skype interviews. Good luck!

Never heard of it before. But it sounds interesting. Post a link to the pod cast when it's back up.

As for me, I'm a good match for most of those criteria but I probably fail at criteria #1. I guess I belong to the audience.

What sort of application process are you looking at here?

I suppose over the next few days I'll review what messages people have sent about how they fit the above criteria. I'll select those with promise, and invite them to an interview over Skype where we'll introduce ourselves and talk about the game a bit. I'm looking for two to four co-hosts.

I'll get on that!

Heh, I could probably do this but for the time commitment. So I'll just promise to be a subscriber and maybe write in with hopefully interesting questions/comments from time to time.

I ought to mention that a normal recording schedule for the show is roughly once every two weeks, and then in between I do all of the editing and uploading of each episode.

*laughing* I would consider applying if it weren't for my terrible accent. I'll stick to the written word for now.

Hmm. I do enjoy Netrunner, and I also do a bit of voice acting on the side. If it looks like I'll have time, I'll send a recording or something over PM.

Good luck in any case!

Not to mention that he is an experienced tournament organizer and judge in New York.

Aw, I'm sad to see Travis go. Will he at least be able to guest-star occasionally?

Hackers with accents make me think of Boris from Golden Eye.

Would you believe that that's the first James Bond movie I've ever seen?? I'm so ashamed.

Psh, I don't even remember how old I was when I saw Goldeneye for the first time.

Wait, is this a "you are old and didn't see Bond movies" thing, or a "I'm a youngin and can't remember _real_ Bond movies" thing?

Golden Eye was the first Bond I saw too, and that was only less than a year ago. I'm ignorant enough about Bond movies to not know whether to be ashamed.

Depends on your age I saw Golden Eye when it first came out. I was twelve at the time and saw no Bond movie beforehand.
