Meet the Staff - Upcoming Podcast Series


Recommended Posts

Shane Pitman

Neowin MVC warwagon has expressed an interest in launching a new podcast series entitled "Meet the Staff". This series will build on an old podcast series called "Featuring Who" wherein a different staff member will be selected to be interviewed by warwagon weekly. Differing from the "Featuring Who" podcasts, this podcast will be purely a question and answer type format and will not be a discussion of current news topics, like our regularly published podcast by Christopher Vendemio (bangbang023) and Rob Wright (Rob). That said, we would like to give our Neowin family the opportunity to participate by submitting questions that you would like to have answered. Please keep your questions tasteful and respectful, but aside from that, feel free to ask anything, keeping in mind that the selections are at the discretion of the interviewer, the interviewee, and Neowin administration.

Awesome (Y)

This could even expand into "Meet the MVC".

And possibly eventually "Meet the member" for anyone who is a long time and well known board user/ex-staff.

Anything, huh?

- An unknown protein “Y” is found to have two chains, 99 amino acids in one chain and 78 in the other, and is connected by disulfide bond. All essential amino acids are present in both chains, however, lacking non-essential amino acids. What can you say about the protein?

- Do you secretly browse through member's warn logs?

- Answer is 42 but what is the question?

- What was the last book you read?

- Do you accept FSM, as your lord and savior?

The only tough choice here is Star Wars or BSG.

I think Anaron's referring to this post:

Having this asked could open up a can of worms.

I'm getting very close to finalizing the list of questions.

If anyone here would also like to help me test Ventrilo shoot me on one of my 3 IM accounts. I still need to test recording and splitting the chanels.
