Former Attempts Edit

In early 2009 there was a very short lived project titled "The Board 8 Podcast" hosted by darkx and Majin_Tobias. Two episodes were recorded, only one of which even made it to the internet. Both darkx and Tobias got busy and had to cancel the project. Although it is not out of the question that they may pick up the project again in the future, or start a similar one, we all have our fingers crossed that they will not.
