Episode 133: Crow’s Nest Campaign Show

Download | Shownotes

This week we have some cool tips, tricks, and strategies on how to get the highest metagame score on Crow’s Nest, the second mission in Halo 3. We also talk about how to get the hidden skulls in this level. And of course we cover more pressing matters like handlebar mustaches, third nipples and the infamous Barbara Streisand video game. Our guest this week is the notorious Lord Gideon from Praetoria Guard, one of the longest running Halo clans out there. Pod art this week comes from spoofmaniac and is available in it’s full glory here. This is also the first show where we play some short ads from our sponsor, the US Navy. Strap on your earphones and buckle up, because it’s about to get freaky up in here!

    do you hate putting food on the table for your family or paying rent? It’s probably because you don’t have to support yourself yet and don’t understand. I’m glad you’re the only one so far that’s complained about this because i put a lot of work into getting them going and putting them in the show in a tasteful way that fit in with the rest of podtacular. So thanks to all the others that aren’t giving us a hard time. By the way, there’s this new feature on MP3 players called a fast-forward button. It works the same way as Tivo! Ever heard of it?

  2. Spoofmaniac says:

    That’s what I was wondering…

  3. BigGoalieDan says:

    Dah! Bad timing. I just played this level on Heroic with skulls to get the Meta game achievement. I coulda used this yesterday! DLing now.

  4. foomojive says:

    Sorry dude but it was no secret what this show was about and when it was coming out.

  5. Spoofmaniac says:

    Holy hell. That’s my screenshot! This is my new favorite episode! Downloading now!

  6. Tarheels32 says:

  7. marooner says:

  8. Duffman X18 says:

    Oh noes, the GCN is being taken over by the Navy! First AJ, then GTR, now Podtac!? Who will they take next?!
    /runs away screaming

  9. Legendary Hooligan says:

    OORAH Navy sponsor!! sweet. now you need to get some Marines sponsoring… :-) groovy show… looking forward to HaloShare.

  10. face head says:

    whats up with the advertisements?
    I hope this turn into like myspace where they have almost porn ads.

    anywho, good show.

  11. heavyfire grunt says:

    *reading itunes show notes*third nipples and the infamous Barbara Streisand video game.hmmm same old same old

  12. Killazilla says:

    Yes because porn ads are soooooooooo effective over an audio medium.

  13. JVB says:

    Heavyfire grunt, can you please explain? What don’t you like?

  14. TheRussianKoLob says:

    Good show as always. I like what you guys came up with about what Kolob means, much more interesting than what it really means. First off it is pronounced: K?-l?b. Not Kulob sorry it bugs me when people mispronounce it. Kolob is from the LDS (aka Mormon) religion, which I am a part of. It is another name for heaven. The Russian came from my brother going on a LDS mission to Russia. So I put them together. Hope that this cleared some confusion up. Sorry that it wasn’t an animal of amazing interest. :)

  15. Spoofmaniac says:

    For the lulz: There weren’t enough nipples to satisfy his needs.

    For the seriousness: I believe he was joking. Unless you were joking about him joking.

  16. JVB says:

    Thank you for taking our jokes with class. I hope we didn’t often you with any of it.

    Now that I know what it means, and how personal your gamertag it is to you, I’ll never make fun of it again.

    Thank you for listening to the show,


  17. Spoofmaniac says:

    Just like to say a BIG thanks to My bros, Gunman1011 and TheRussianKoLoB for helping me make this screenshot! I hope to think of more soon!

  18. TheRussianKoLob says:

    Offend? Are you kidding me? It was hilarious! lol Go ahead and make fun of it if you want. I’m cool with it. :D

  19. Hoogs says:

    Woot! First time having my tip read! Thanks guys. And what was up with those Navy ads? I guess they were ok, but I couldn’t help but be a tad annoyed by them. It’s no biggie though.

  20. Derf says:

    Wow, Podtacular I frown upon you. I Absolutely hate the navy adds, I hate all adds all together, there pretty much every where now, even my favorite podcast. :(

    — XxDerf0293xX —

  21. Duffman X18 says:

    Yeah, I just fast-forward through them. While it helps to support Podtac, it does seem kind of odd, advertising military training to us teenagers…

  22. Derf says:

    After rereading what I had said, I now realize the harshness of my words, I certainly did not mean them to cut so deep, although it seems that I have caused exactly that to happen. I would edit my comment if I could.

  23. Killazilla says:

    If you don’t like the ads then donate so that Foo Mo can pay for the site.

  24. kilaMOMjaro says:

    Aww Giddy you did good! =] Made us proud. <3

  25. foomojive says:

    No worries. It’s all good in the hood.

  26. Hoogs says:

    Actually, after thinking about it, I realize that I kinda like the ads. Nice little “Break in the action”.

  27. TheRussianKoLob says:

    The adds really threw me off guard I didn’t really expect them. But it isn’t like I hate them. As long as you don’t do subliminal advertising like on the Simpsons I’m good with it. If I hear any Yvan Eht Nioj I will know some crazy stuff is going on at Podtac.

  28. SGT Corona says:

    rofl, great show, best one so far :)

  29. face head says:

    yeah, they threw me off. i mean, sure, i disprove of the navy, and i’d like more of game related sponsers, but i guess that the navy is fine.

  30. face head says:

    real quick, the office ad on the front page = awesome.

  31. chuckiej says:

    There are only two things I don’t like about the spots:
    1) that there are 3.5 in the show
    2) that I’ve heard better Navy spots elsewhere. One they gave you to play is intended for a college sports show (the “All conference” one). Not that they have to be gaming related, just not obviously related to something else.

    I’m actually quite excited about it and can’t wait to see how it works over the next few episodes.

    Oh yeah, and the three of you guys were hilarious!

  32. BigGoalieDan says:

    awesome episode. Very funny. The ads don’t bother me. I think they were put in in a tasteful way without interupting the flow of the show.
    BTW no vid this week? I woulda thought you would have had the MC Hammer/Don’t Tase me Bro! vid embedded with this. ;)
    And here’s a link for the lazy though if you don’t want to search for it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xzkd_m4ivmc

  33. Duffman X18 says:

    Lord Gideon was an awesome Guest-host, btw.

  34. Lancelot59 says:

    I’ll get to work on the ass tard with accessories soon! SO MUCH MATH HOMEWORK! agh…

  35. frogman187 says:

    i used “snazzy joe’s dance of insperation” for my english homework!(their word of the day was mustache)

  36. a surly hobo says:

    If people donated to the site, they wouldn’t have to have ads. There is absolutely nothing wrong with them. And Facehead, you disprove of the honorable and brave Americans who join the Navy to protect you? Don’t be such a huge jerk.
