What is The Newgrounds Podcast?
From the minds behind Grounds Patrol and A Couple of Crickets comes the one, the only, the definitive Newgrounds community podcast - it’s right in the name! Every week a roundup of knowledgeable and hilarious (citation needed) hosts come together to talk site news, recent submissions, forum happenings and just about everything else this wonderful website has to offer. Not only that, but we’re hosting interviews all over the place with Newgrounds artists both old and new.
We have an already-active community on our Discord server! You can join it at bit.ly/ngpdiscord.
Who hosts the podcast?
NGP will feature a rotating cast of hosts. Not every host will be in every show, and the number of hosts in an episode will depend entirely on the format.
Find a current list of all our hosts on the Discord somewhere probably eventually!
How often is NGP released?
NGP is constructed as a weekly podcast. Right now the schedule is a little loose as we figure everything out -- our aim is still to release on an about-weekly basis. Once we’re settled, we’ll be locking into a formal weekly schedule.
What will the podcast’s format be?
NGP will alternate between “Variety” episodes and “Interview” episodes. Variety episodes will have more hosts and feature segments like Site News, Spotlights, Live from the Front Page, This Day in NG History, audience participation sections and more. Interview episodes will be longer and feature one or two hosts talking to a special guest.
Wait, audience participation? How can I be in the audience?
For the most part, NGP will be recorded in a public voice channel in the NGP Discord server. Announcements will always be made on the server and on Twitter a few days prior to recordings with show and time details, so if you can make it we’d love to have you listening in live! As an audience member, you’ll be muted in the voice channel but free to listen and chime in via chat. And yeah, we might totally bring you on for a game or something.
