We were wrapping up our annual Dream Machine issue so we could only spare three armchair experts this time around: Our host and Senior Editor Josh Norem, Deputy Editor Gordon Mah Ung, and Associate Editor Tom McNamara. We still managed to blather on as usual, however! Our topics for Episode 206 of the Maximum PC Podcast included the new GTX 760 video card from Nvidia, Microsoft's upcomingXbox One console, and AMD's current strategies.
We were busy little bees this time and could only spare three people: host and Senior Editor Josh Norem, Associate Editor Tom McNamara, and legendary intern Chris Zele. Ironically, we spent most of our time jabbering on about Nvidia's newest high-end video card, the GTX 780. We didn't have the MSRP in time for the taping of episode #203 of the Maximum PC No BS Podcast, but you can't let missing things like "facts" stop you from having an opinion!
Now that we have a fifth microphone and a video camera, everybody's in the pool. That's 20% more Maximum PC, at no additional charge! (Shipping and handling fees may apply.) You can watch us interrupt each other on our official Youtube channel, which also has videos of our previous video podcasts, and an assortment of other free amusements to upgrade your Monday to a Funday!
Remember how people were complaining that the year 2000 wasn't really the year 2000 and that 2001 was really the year 2000? Like that debacle, with us never publishing episode 150 of the No BS Podcast, you can similarly consider Episode 201 to be the real 200th episode if you feel inclined.
We feel honored that you guys can't get enough of the Maximum PC No BS podcast. We really do. It almost brings a tear to our old wretched eyes...almost. Anyways, we've heard your cries for more podcasts and we're trying our best to deliver. After all, how could we say no to a face like this?
"Could ya'll possibly make an 'all rant edition' podcast this year like there have been in previous years? I liked those episodes of all the rants from the past year cut up into one." – user steven4570
Two podcasts in one month? We share because we care
What's this? A new podcast already? Well, that's just how much we love you. And it gets us out of the salt mine for about an hour and a half. Not that benchmarking GTX Titans all day is a hard-knock life. In No BS podcast episode 196, we rotated in our trusty intern Chris, giving Online Managing Editor Jimmy Thang and Editor-in-Chief Katherine Stevenson some time to plot writing assignments and other devious shenanigans.
We admit it — we’ve fallen behind on reader questions over the past, oh, year or so. Sorry about that. To make up for it Deputy Editor Gordon Ung, Intern Chris Zele, Online Managing Editor Jimmy Thang, and Editor Josh Norem have pulled together to answer a backlog of reader questions in No BS Podcast #192 (Warning: we use "adult language"…a lot). First we yank a few questions from the voicemail inbox, and then we tackle questions from twitter, and then finally face questioning on Facebook. After the Q/A session, Gordon steps up onto his soapbox and delivers an impassioned plea regarding tablets. It’s an hour and a half of nothing but your questions and Gordon’s untreated psychosis.

October was a scary busy month for Tech (Halloween pun totally intended). Manning and "womening" episode 191 of the No BS podcast are Editor Josh Norem, Editor-in-Chief Katherine Stevenson, Online Managing Editor Jimmy Thang, and Deputy Editor Gordon Mah Ung. This time around the crew tackles a wide variety of topics that include:
Episode 189 of the No BS Podcast ushers in a new era for Maximum PC. It is Nathan Edwards' farewell podcast (He's moving to Texas, y'all), but with every ending there comes a new beginning.

Our special guest star this week is Gordon Mah Ung's soundboard! (WARNING: ridiculous times and swear words ahead)
