Bear Swarm! has become BS! Radio

After five years, Bear Swarm! has moved to a new location.

logo-200h

It’s not so much a new show, as a new attitude.
It’s still Mike and Rob talking about things the like,
but without the constant shackle of gaming.
If you came to Bear Swarm! for personality, you’ll love BS! Radio.
If you came for gaming talk, check out BS! Radio because we haven’t stopped loving the hobby.

Download ALL of BearSwarm!

For the next month you’ll be able to download EVERY SINGLE EPISODE OF BEAR SWARM! ever recorded (plus a bunch of bonus garbage) all in 16 (17, if you’re counting the bonus garbage) easy .rar files.

Why are we doing this?

BECAUSE WE CAN.

Each .rar is around 700MBs (except for the bonus garbage, which weighs in at around 1.35GBs) because I was to lazy to figure out a better way to split the files.

Why are we only doing this for a month?

Because thats when the free rapidshare files expire and I’m not paying a single solitary penny to do this.

So, after the break… The links:

As some of you may be aware, Joplin, MO was hit pretty freaking hard by tornadoes in the last few days. Joplin is about 75 miles from here and a lot of Joplin locals come up here on the weekends. Their friends, families, and gamers.

A local gaming store (Meta-Games) is gathering various stuff for a silent auction that will run from June 6th – June 12th. Proceeds will go to Red Cross for Joplin disaster relief.

They already have a couple places donating items but I figured I’d reach out to the handful of people I know that might be able to donate something, anything, for this gamer auction.

If you have anything you can pitch in you can e-mail me at rob@bearswarm.com and we can work out the details.

Rob’s Radio Debut!

December 13th, 2010 2 Comments

Hey guys, Rob here. Last Saturday I had my first appearance on a weekly radio program now. I’ll be hosting My PC Talk, a local computer and technology call-in radio show here in Springfield, MO. Starting in January, maybe the 1st but for sure on the 8th, I’ll be a regular host. If you’re local you can tune in Saturdays at 10am on either FM 104.1 or AM 1260. If you’re not local, you can listen live on KSGF’s website. Feel free to call in, just don’t be a jerk.

You can go hear my first appearance on the My PC Talk website.

In an effort to make everything easier for our listeners we have added a suite a integration features with Facebook and Twitter. The most directly useful is the ability to post comments via your Facebook or Twitter accounts! Every post also features “Share” and “Like” buttons for Facebook making it easier than ever for you to spread the word about your favorite episodes! In addition to that you’ll notice a couple new features at the top and bottom of the site. First is a little information box about our Facebook fans. Below that we have a link to find our official Twitter account. At the bottom of the site is another link to our Facebook fan page and a fan counter similar to the Feedburner counter.

These integrations come on the heels of the creation of an official Bear Swarm! Facebook Fan Page and the first official Bear Swarm! Twitter Account. All of this is to help reach out to our community more. Your feedback is appreciated and we want to make it easier for you to tell us what you think.

Check out the Bear Swarm! Facebook Fan Page here.
Follow @BearSwarm on Twitter.

Bear Swarm! is going to GenCon! All of us. Rob, Mike, Art, Paul, and even Matt!

In addition to audio recording, Rob has decided to tempt fate and try to do some live UStream broadcasts! While there are rules about what can and can’t be broadcast he feels fairly confidant that you can at least check in on a bunch of nerds hanging out in a hotel room.

Are you going to GenCon? Want to get a hold of us? We’ll make it easy for you. After the break is all the details you’ll need to reach various members of Bear Swarm! Read the rest of this entry »
