    Oh my…almost three hours? That’s a bit too long, Larry. That’s the majority of my commute for the week :-(

    • Major Nelson

      I agree it’s long…but it’s pretty solid :)

  • Nick

    Great podcast. Great to find out that Curiosity will land on my birthday. Pretty awesome b-day present. :D

  • Jordan Mcdonald

    Yer too much nonsense talk for me, I’m sorry if I sound insensative but I don’t really care about your familys, food, holidays, or pets. I’ve also stopped following larry on twitter, coz of all the spam and cryptic answers to unknown tweets, if u wana hav a conversation with someone… get on skype or something….

    • Dan Etheridge

      You’re on your own here.

      • Dan Etheridge

        So I get downvoted for pretty much saying that I like this podcast. Sorry everyone.

        • Lee Rayson

          it not just you, someone been down voting comments on purpose

    • Major Nelson

      Um. Ok. Thanks.

    • Lee Rayson

      How many shows have you listen to? This is how Larry and the gang just are, they work for microsoft but they do have there own lives to. they give us xbox updates but they also talk about experinces and what games they been into over the last week.
      He pays for the shows out of his own pocket i believe so he can do what he pretty much wants to.
      If your unhappy about it you pay for his show and run it how you want Lol

  • christopher corrick

    want to say thanks for transformers interview. As someoe from the uk i am loveing the Olympics,the best bit was “good evening Mr Bond”.

  • Curtis Isabell

    so the walking dead 1 and 2 will be free this tuesday for playstation plus members so why not give gold members the same thing.

    • Rob

      Great question.

    • Lee Rayson

      This aint playstation.

      • E.Nich

        Yup, so no free for us, I don’t care, but… a sale maybe???

        EDIT: just an idea of DLC sale content I’d buy; Dead Island DLC, Nier DLC and SSFIV costume packs.

        • Lee Rayson

          I mention this a few weeks ago, we always get crappy deals throught the time they have some arcade promotion, they like to have as much focus on those games.
          People are not happy no matter what the deal is, when borderlands DLC went on sale for first time people were happy but then when the next DLC for borderlands came out and the current DLC went on sale again people moan about it.
          They dont have to give us any sort of deal to begin with, people need to stop comparing xbox to PSN+ deals because there two different services
          PSN+ “free” games are not free it just a free rental for as long you keep paying for PSN+
          Over the years we had alot free games,
          more recently Avatar Crash Course and Harms way
          IT almost the end of the console cycle just be grateful there still doing deals and not stop doing it

          • Flawless

            oh you mean the free games that were basically advertisements lol.

          • Victor Henrique Tavares Soares

            I have both PSN+ and Xbox Live Gold
            I got
            Gotham City Impostors which is a awesome game,pretty expensive over LIVE…. and I think we`ll get discount over Tony Hawk HD….
            You talk like you don`t pay a cent for a Live Gold….

            Just for the record I love live, and psn…deal with it
            I won’t buy the game as soon as they`re released…I`ll wait for a discount first at either services.
            And PSN+ has released more games that interested me….

            PS.| Where is the MGS HDC….Is it going to be over LIVE to buy (Games on Demmand)

    Is it cheeky to ask what sort of click through rate from 430k followers you get on your Amazon affiliate links on Twitter?

  • Zach

    I love long podcasts :D

  • Karl Cramer

    Kudos to Xbox for trying to get kids interested in science with the Mars Rover Landing coverage and game.

    • Chris Grub

      Agreed, that being said – having it accessible only through kinect is silly and is an obvious advertising ploy.

      If they used motion gestures in NASA I’d be suprised.

      • Nick Peck

        Umm welcome to business 101 lol. Do things like this that are very well done and interesting to attract more customers?? I guess MS is the only evil company to do that right? /rollseyes

  • Lera Atwater

    Love the JPL interview. Thank you!

  • Matt

    Ann sounded like a proud parent when talking about Curiosity. I really enjoyed this episode.

    • Major Nelson

      She is easily one of my Top 5 favorite guests

  • Zack Stein

    An absolutely wonderful podcast. Just goes to show you that no matter how good your work, someone will find fault. Someone actually complaining about the length? Really? Great guests, great segments, a driveway moment with the NASA interview… The biggest drawback I can see here is that it’s hard to live up to this quality week after week. Great job, Larry!

    • Major Nelson

      Bonus points for knwoing what a driveway moment is ;)

      • Zack Stein

        Just a guy stuck in radio dreaming of a “Larry-Hryb-shift” in career…

  • Lee Rayson

    Great show major, i even liked the length hope we get longer shows in the future

    • Christian Duckworth

      Excellent podcast this week, long, and funny, and educational. Keep it up, Larry!!!
