Hello tankers!

I know there are some of you out there that might like a weekly World of Tanks Blitz audio program to listen to on your commute, at work, while you do dishes, while you mow the lawn, while you work out... whatever! I went looking for one and there wasn't anything out there - so I created it! I present to you Tank Boom! a World of Tanks Blitz podcast. My co-host Lokeen and I put out a 35-59 minute podcast about World of Tanks Blitz each and every week.

For you Android folks - I have submitted the feed to Stitcher as well. I will be sure to update this thread when I have confirmation that it is live.

 

What tank would you like to hear a review of next?  (I've done the Matilda)

 

If I don't have it I'll interview a unicorn who plays it.

Listening to the first episode now online.  Remarkably clean and clear making it easy to listen to...  This will be perfect for listening to while working in the home office at night.  Bookmarked!

 

Thanks for putting in the effort and doing a great job with it!  :medal:

 

As far as other tanks to review, I'm starting the journey to a handful of Tier IX tanks and would love to hear your insight on any of the M103, ST-I, Obj. 704, VK 45.02 A or Conqueror.

 

Thanks and best regards as you move forward with this!  :P

Thanks for the great feedback guys! I'll be getting better at it, but it's good to know the first couple of episodes are decent quality. My goal was not to try to get it perfect but just to get it out there and learn as I go.

 

In terms of support - wow I appreciate the offers of donations but the MOST valuable thing you could do to help is subscribe and most importantly leave me a rating on iTunes (and/or Stitcher when that feed goes live). Any review at all will help. No need to write a book - just a sentence or two will help a great deal.

 

I am very grateful for the support this community is showing me - you guys ROCK!

 

Also the voice talent there is my lovely wife, so I'll share your feedback! It's always good to compliment CINC House!

Thank you tankers! I am so grateful for your feedback and support.

 

How frequently would you guys like it? I am starting with the idea of 30 minutes weekly - is that too long/short? Would you rather twice a week? I'll balance it with what I can comfortably do of course, but I'd love to know what you want. :)

Woohoo!  Podcast number 25 for me.  I drive a lot. Most podcasts I listen to are an hour or longer. But 30 minutes is fine to start out with I think then work your way up to an hour maybe. It's all about content so if you have enough for even longer go for it. Edit: weekly is fine also in my opinion. Then again you could end up doing three a week like some I listen too. :)

Thanks for the feedback nefram! So maybe an hour once per week or 30 minutes twice per week would work?

 

I'll have to see how the content flows once I have the production process down better, but I suspect I can make 30 minutes 2x a week work.

Subscribed and listened to both podcasts while at work - really well done!  The sound quality and pacing are excellent and the 30 minute length was perfect for my attention span.

I really liked your discussion of map tactics on Castilla and Mines - I hope you can do more of these in the future.

 

Thanks for taking the time to put these together.
