One year and 38 podcast episodes ago, show runner Corey Chapman and site runner Howie Decker got together to address Scoop Nation.

It was a productive show- the idea for the “Are ya SCOOPin’ it?!” segment was born, we talked about podcast spinoffs such as The (title pending) Movie Podcast and the Mad Cast, and Not Lee Majors waited by the fax machine.

This year, Not The Fink does the introductions as we get together again to discuss the past, present, and mostly the future of the website and podcast.

    Great show, as always! And that “Will” guy you all kept mentioned – he sounds like a cool dude.

    Anyway, I always love “How the sausage is made” looks behind the scenes, so it was nice to know the thought processes behind certain things (the new writers, reduced pod schedule, etc).

      You’re always invited to our sausage making parties

      Sounds great Kev! Let us know what you think when you get around to it!

    lmao….”Not The Fink” can get me everytime with that Demotion “at random” Royal Rumble. :D

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      for as small an audience that intro will play to, you were one of the ones I hoped would be amused by it.

      • http://teamhellions.com Kevin Hellions

        I’ll consider myself to be one of the other ones. And I was! Even went and found this infamous Rumble on YouTube and watched it the other night. Outlaw Ron Bass!

        • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

          You certainly are – we old school wrestling fans have to stick together!

          • https://twitter.com/Count_Marzo Count Marzo

            Yes we do. The way The Fink says “At random” for the start to that Royal Rumble is hysterical. Every. Single. Time. lol

            and I meant Demolition* not “demotion”. Damn typos/spell correct BS!

          • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

            Although “Demotion” would be an equally terrifying tag team name amongst corporate America

            “Demotion” could feud with Irwin R Schyster and the Million Dollar Man. Maybe even get the Repo Man involved.

    So, I finally got around to listening to this and really enjoyed hearing more about the history and future direction of USF. I’m extremely humbled you name-dropped me a couple of times, too. I’m so excited USF is expanding its empire and I feel cooler for having been around since near the beginning, like a nerdy fanboy (or fangirl) of an awesome TV show that hasn’t fully caught on yet who will someday lord it over other nerds and be all like, “I was THERE, man.” I’m digging the new writers so far and glad they’re around to free Howie up some more so that Howie can keep doing what Howie does best–which I don’t even know what that is, exactly, but I think it involves naked pictures of Bea Arthur and barking orders through a Zack Morris-sized cell phone. I just know it keeps this site going and makes it an infinitely more awesome place to visit! And Corey, I know you don’t post as much content as Howie, but I just wanted to tell you how much I always enjoy hearing you on the podcasts, which I couldn’t imagine without you. Keep up the great work, all of you! You give us dorky 30-something adult-children a place to call home.
