On the eve of the one-year anniversary of the GamerGate hashtag, Lusipurr and SiliconNooB finally and comprehensively examine the movement during the bomb-threat-truncated SPJ Airplay debate hosted by the Society of Professional Journalists in Miami.


  1. This podcast was plagued by problems.

    – I became sick part of the way in and had to step AFK for several minutes, leaving SN to talk to readers alone.
    – SN’s Australian semaphor went on walkabout, suspending the recording.
    – Although this podcast was supposed to summarise it, AirPlay was suspended and the podcast was scheduled to record whilst it was still suspended (which would have been after it, had all gone to plan). This led to some distraction as we waited for it to finish during the recording proper.
    – A whole chunk of discussion about Red Ash took place off microphone and was not recorded.
    – We lost part of our recording edits when some software crashed. They were not all lost, however, with the result that…
    – I recorded a replacement BupTalk, even although the BupTalk was intact; but,
    – I lost the introduction and then forgot to mix it correctly, so it occurs on top of the Imitanis Literary Corner.

    Apologies all around. Hopefully the extra BupTalk makes up for one of the most bumbling, unsatisfactory podcasts we’ve ever produced.

  2. Audio issues aside, I believe this is one of your best shows to date. I enjoyed listening to your views surrounding and beyond GamerGate. Thank you two for the show.

  3. @Wolfe: Thanks! My only regret is that it could have been so much better had things gone right and had we been prepared.
