In this week's Woot Podcast Mailbag, Woot staffer Jason Toon breaks off a few shards of his hard-won wisdom for a weird nerd suffering from Gygaxic personality disorder.

Hey woot staff! Thanks for the creativity of these video podcasts. Regardless, I think I like the daily, audio brand of humor as opposed to this video version. Thanks for trying, though! Is there any going back or perhaps producing both? That would certainly be fine! Thanks,

Whoa! What was that ottoman action on the monitor on the desk?
Thanks for the SFW warning!

The time stamp is a LIE! I'm guessing that this week's w00t vidcast was actually posted around noon EST.

and for some reason, I don't think I'm surprised by the type of videos that Jason watches.

I believe it was also featured on Tosh.0

Best Podcast ... recently. Nothing can top the the Acquired by Amazon song though.

Jason is apperently a Dr. Pepper addict, has some Tribble trouble and enjoys a Monday morning Widmer Hefeweizen.

So what songs are on his Sansa Fuze?

I'm sure the daily audio podcasts were a lot of work, but I miss them.

Alas, I suspect this is Amazon's doing. Despite all the claims that nothing would change, things have changed. Employees getting shipped to Seattle? Monkeys being forced to wear name badges? No more daily audio podcasts? How sad.

But if we must be limited to weekly videos, I vote for more Mortimer and Monte, and more Real Actual Tests from my Real Actual Friends.

Though I'd love to see Bluetooth the Pirate on video.

I don't think anyone claimed "nothing would change." Woot was making regular changes long before Amazon entered the picture.

This particular change, I assure you, we cooked up ourselves.

I'm more jealous of Jason's corner office with windows. And impressed.



When I was a kid I wanted to be older, this CRAP is NOT what I expected.

At least, please bring back the hearty "Podcast begins now..." filler line.

Cooked up yourselves, huh? Well, file it under Happy Snacking.

I too enjoy a morning Widmer Hef (and who doesn't?). Toon has good taste, IMO.

hooray beer!

I think you mean "What songs are on his brown Zune?"

BROWN ZUNE REPRAZENT, YO!

I frequently forget to check woot now that the daily audio podcasts are no more. I see the video podcast and it just makes me sad.

ghoulish.
So sad to see the podcast team has just stopped trying.
In fact, why not just do a woot cast every 2 weeks. no , in fact quarterly. I use to be a fan, but you have jumped the shark

I can see my old King County office behind Jason.... and now I live out in Richland WA... boohoohoo

I miss Seattle

(Good podcast by the way. But Widmer is sooo like populist and obvious, you should go for some Ninkasi or Double Mountain)

I hate to complain about free entertainment, but I believe the video portion of the wootcast should add something.

Now if Jason looked like the Old Spice Guy I would want to spend some quality time looking at him. But he would also need to be sitting on a horse without a shirt. Jason, not the horse. Well, the horse shouldn't wear a shirt either.

Why didn't I think of the zune?
If you still aren't going to say what songs, I'm guessing.
"Cotton Eye Joe"
Weird Al "Eat it"
Beastie Boys "Brass Monkey"
"The Safety Dance"
and "Can't Get Enough of Your Love, Baby" to set the mood when watching some furniture lovin'

Yoku Deki Mashite!

Give us this day, our daily amusement.

I think you guys at Woot! are absolutely brilliant. I am SO addicted to my daily dose of humor with all the hidden puns/innuendos/insinuations/meanings behind EVERY corner. Wootcast, video wootcast, product or shirt description, and your archaic attempts displayed for customer service. Keep it coming! Rock on........

Live long and prosper.

OK so we have a grown man caught off guard by a co-worker with a camera. Prior to being interrupted, this grown man was watching a video of teenage boys hassock humping! Just another normal day in the village of Woot?

I agree. This is a complete F A I L. Distasteful and not at all funny. Bring back the old Woot that we loved.
