Hey all,
As most of you know, we’ve been having alot of trouble recently getting shows together - This is due mostly to all of us having lives and priorities that we (rightly) put above the timely production of GAL.

I spoke with Hawkes this morning, and we’ve decided that he will be taking an extended hiatus from his hosting duties on GamerAndy Live! to give him more time with his family and to work on his own show, Ask A Hawkes (at http://www.askahawkes.com).  Similarly, Edie’s real-life-work-load has increased tremendously in the past month and her availability is sketchy at best.

So here we are, and for the very first time I find myself turning to YOU, my Chapple Bandits in search of the next Regular on GamerAndy Live!

REQUIREMENTS:
1) You must be 18 years old older (or lie about it)
2) You MUST be available at LEAST 3 nights a week for several hours of recording.  Keep in mind this does not mean you will be recording every one of those nights, we just need someone with a somewhat open schedule so we can make sure to get at least one episode done per week.
3) You must be very knowledgeable about the world of videogames, the gaming industry, the players, the games, etc.
4) You must be able to handle a live and uncut format - We don’t do retakes so you can think of something witty (unless I think of something REALLY sweet, then I do it quietly and dont tell anyone)
5) If you’re going to be a fanboy, don’t be too rabid about it (looking at you sherveen)

Most important: You MUST be comfortable having long conversations that tend to derail and go in a completely unrelated to anything direction then get back on topic and finish our conversation about god of war jump puzzle mechanics and how they relate to pudding physics

NOT REQUIRED BUT WOULD BE NICE
*Blogging backround (if I find somebody to deal with Gearlive’s ######## posting system and get shows on the front page for me that is a HUGE plus)
*Own all three next gen systems (totally not neccesary, its just a thought)

If you’re interested in this opportunity to be a regular on GamerAndy Live! then email me at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) subject: “GAL Host” with your relevent contact info (instant messenger or phone number) and a little blurb about yourself - I’ll be contacting people later this week to schedule some test runs.

Thats it guys, thanks for listening and participating in our little community smile  If I can’t find someone from the community who clicks than I’ll be taking this to some of the other sites, but I wanted to give ya’ll the first crack at this.

-Andy


UPDATE:
Forgot to mention and this is *very* important

You also need to have a USB mic/headset that doesnt sound like ass and a reliable high speed internet connection
This probably doesnt pay.
Ultimately, I’ll be narrowing down the field and the final decision will be made a few episodes down the road with a real episode of GamerAndy Live! for feedback from the community on who they like best

I would, but I don’t have that much free time.  I do have experience tho.  And I’m witty.  Oh well.

GeminiAce, you can apply anyhow - The time available is more a guideline, we just need someone who won’t get sucked into real life quite as badly as some of us are prone to smile

lol

When describing Sherveen, I prefer the term “deeply committed to the Xbox” rather than fanboy.

I have never made a podcast yet, but I have given speeches in front on an audience of around 100 people.

I’m not really a fan boy.  I only own one of the current gen console and that’s due to limited funds.

I do like getting under the hood of gadgets and finding how they work and I do have a lot of time on my hands.

I am going to record a podcast of my own as well but it will include movies, anime and tech as well.

So I won’t be in compitition with this one.  It represents my ecclectic personality.

I would love to make a podcast with you.  I am from the uk and would be similar to the dude of the widget.

From a fan point of view I’m glad to see that there. Actually, despite over half the requirements disqualifying me, I’m more than happy to see them there. Thems make for good podcasting. :D

You hate me just because my headset isn’t USB. It was expensive, though!

I don’t like you anymore boy-mommy.

My headset isn’t USB, either. It’s just a mic/speaker input combo thing…. I imagine that would probably also work, though. However, why the USB stipulation, Andy?

Well, apparently no one else is going to say it…..so I guess I will.

Thanks for all the great GAL episodes Hawkes. It was fun listening to your rants and your gaming
knowledge is second-to-none. You will be missed my friend.

I have applied as well.  I own 4 of the top five systems (360, wii, ds, ps2) and while I love my Bioshock and COD4 beta, I also love NCAA, Madden and the NBA games.  I think that will set me apart a bit from most podcasters.  Plus I’m black so that should help the raise the percentage of minority videogame podcaster to a whopping .05%.

I applied last night.

We shouldn’t act like this is the end of Hawkes. After all, he’ll be back. Plus, he’s starting Ask a Hawkes again.
