I joined after the live stream last summer.
Back then we only had the 'I Hate Eljay Topic' and the 'Introduce Yourself' Topic, as well as a few others. I joined cause I think TTV is a pretty cool podcast, despite me being behind about 12-15 episodes. It has led to me meeting a mysterious monster, creating horrible literature, and meeting a ton of awesome people. I also got bored on BZP very quickly.
