Epic Dolls LF1M for Podcast


The Epic Dolls are looking for a new regular co-host for the podcast and we need your help. Do you think you are just the person I need? Or maybe you know someone who would be great. Well here’s a little more info about what exactly it takes to be on the Epic Dolls podcast.

Female:
Sorry guys but the Epic Dolls podcast is focused on the perspective of the female gamers.

Time:
Epic Dolls is a bi-weekly podcast so consistency and time commitment are a big deal. Schedules can be flexible but we will need to set aside about 2 hours every other week for actual recording time. And you will probably be doing several hours a week worth of research to keep up on info so we’ll have topics to discuss.

Enthusiasm:
One thing that is important to me with the show is a positive attitude and love of the game. I don’t do a podcast to take a hour out of people’s day for them to listen to me complain. WoW is first and foremost a game and we should be having fun.

Knowledge:
It’s important to share a lot of good information on the show and I need a co-host who knows their stuff. You don’t have to be an expert but experience with a high level character and desire to share knowledge and learn about the game are essential.

I know this may sound like a lot but it’s really not that scary. Podcasting is really fun and rewarding so don’t be shy. So if you are interested follow the instructions on our forums to record a .mp3 introduction of yourself. If you have any questions at all about this don’t hesitate to email us at epicdolls at yahoo.com. Looking forward to the possibilities.




Looking back, Looking forward

There’s a feeling of autumn in the air, and it has nothing to do with the season or the weather. No, these are the last few waning dog days of the Burning Crusades’ summer. Before we all go plunging off into the wintery northlands, I wanted to pause to look back on some things that the Burning Crusade brought to us and some of my personal favorite memories and achievements.

Watch 24 hours of MMO’ing! Today!

That’s right, Beau Turkey (minion and husband of Leala Turkey) will be streaming 24 hours of gaming today, for the Extra Life Charity drive! Below you can view his playing, as well as Leala playing some too! Enjoy! Look for the Kara Run later today at 3pm-6pm and 8-11pm Central (times might vary.)

UPDATE: We did it! Each of our team members played for 24 hours over the weekend. Some were even able to go in 18-21 hour stretches! I (Leala) however had to do 12 hours each day on both Sat. and Sun. due to work and the fact that I’m weak and need sleep. Thanks to everyone who donated. We raised over $900 which is amazing. You guys are truly EPIC! And the entire Extra Life effort raised over $100,000! Read more about the story here.
