We Speak Cat

Wednesday, June 5th, 2013

Hello all! In this episode, we discuss some of the new features and additions from the 5.3 patch that can help out guilds. Running heroic scenarios for guild bank gold, Battlefield: Barrens for getting a few pieces of gear to catch up for raiding, and running old content for fun and for a chance at new pets!

We also discuss Kitchen Nightmares and a recent episode featuring Amy’s Baking Company and how it relates to leadership. If you want to know how not to run a restaurant (or guild), I would definitely recommend watching the episode. You will either laugh hysterically or be completely terrified (or both)! You can take a look at the episode here!

All Mages, All the Time

Tuesday, April 9th, 2013

This episode, we had Malon of @ArcaneTactics fame on as our guest. He is an officer in the guild Nightshift on Wildhammer EU. We discuss how raiding has changed throughout the expansions, switching from 25-man to 10-man raiding, and recruitment. We also discussed Malon’s ongoing #MageTips on his Twitter feed! (I cannot recommend reading them enough for any raiding Mage or raid leader out there.)

We would love to hear more from you! Send any questions, comments, or feedback into us at Followtheleaderpodcast@gmail.com or on Twitter at @leaderpodcast.

BOOM

Wednesday, January 16th, 2013

In this episode, we have Boom aka @RogueDarren as our guest and talk about his guild Chi Cerca Trova on Durotan. CCT is a 25-man guild, so we discuss some of the challenges with keeping a 25-man guild running. We also discuss an email about handling a GM’s departure and changing from a casual to a more progression oriented guild. There is also some big news from Orv about his guild, Eff the Ineffable.

Gingers Hate WoW

Friday, October 26th, 2012

Mists of Pandaria has arrived! In this episode we discuss some of the things we have been doing to prepare for raids as well as our thoughts on the Guild Mentor program and the implementation of items that could help new players even more.

*Edit by Jed: Only Aero hates Wow AND Gingers. Orv is a ginger, Nymphy dates him and I married a ginger. Please only write him hate mail. KTHX.*

*Another edit: Aero does not hate gingers, either. Mysterious gingers are awesome.*

Officer Chat

Friday, June 15th, 2012

In this “funner” episode we cover what to look for when picking officers, delegating to officers, and handling issues that may come up with officers. Orv couldn’t make it due to being on a job interview (who needs to work!), but Nymphy covers a little bit of what her and him do in their guild that has no officers. We answer some Twitter/Email questions as well!

We hope you enjoy listening as much as we did recording, and we’ll talk to you in the next one!
