Whatever happened to the Penny Arcade podcast?

Will you guys ever make new episodes? I liked it alot. It was one of the funniest podcasts out there, and was really cool to hear the behind the scenes on how you create the comic. Please bring it back. Does anyone else agree with me?

    PA TV has usurped the role of the podcasts.

    More specifically, the 4th Panel episodes of PATV. Those cover the "making of" nature of the podcasts of olde. The more general behind the scenes stuff like Child's Play, office life, Ping Pong and such are in the other PATV episodes (Excepting Blamimations which are just silliness from Scott Kurtz and Kris Straub.)

    There's also the D&D podcasts, which I think are still on-going. A bit of a different focus obviously, but it involves some of the same people and I hear they're pretty entertaining.

    OP, you could always consider emailing them with your polite, constructive feedback regarding the shift from podcasts to PATV. Their emails are available on every front-page post they make, and while they might not have time to reply I'm pretty sure they do read all the email they get. PATV is pretty cool, and I think the production values are quite high, but it has some downsides that I can see compared to a podcast:
    • I don't think you can currently download the PATV videos, so you can't take them with you
    • Even if you can download them, you can only use them on a device that plays video (not just audio) and you can't really enjoy them while driving or something
    They've only got so much time available, though, and PA fans who would prefer an audio-only podcast vs. PATV video may be in the minority.

    Someone asked about this at PAX East. They're aware people want them - Gabe's quote was something like "It's not on the table right now, but it's not off the table either."

    Schrödinger's podcast! Is it alive or dead? Until someone looks in the podcast room and collapses the wave function, no one knows.

    I was pronouncing Schrödinger as Shro-ding-er for the longest time

    Apparently it's Shro-dinjer

    Man that Kazaka, what a tool he was!

    no it's not, you were pronouncing it correctly

    whoever told you the 'g' makes a 'j' sound is a goose

    The D&D podcasts that wizards puts out, or are there some still done with the PA guys? I tried listening to other groups playing, but they're pretty tedious.

    There are supposed to be more from the PA group, eventually.
