|The Rawrcast Show|
|Launched||07 January 2009|
|Maintained by||Stompalina & Hafrot|
The Rawrcast Show is a weekly World of Warcraft podcast produced by Haf (Rusty) and Stompalina (Denise). Together they cover game-related topics, news, opinions, and reviews. They also occasionally welcome guests who help to shape our in-game adventures, and our out-of-game community of players. We have quickly made quite a name for ourselves as a fun-loving couple who are open and responsive to our community, and who offer our perspective with a great personal edge.
In addition to their iTunes, Zune, and direct RSS feed, they also broadcast the show live each week to a crowd of listeners who actively participate in the banter by asking questions via their lively chat room moderator, Mullets.
The Rawrcast Show is divided into different sections. They are typically in the same order:
News and Reviews
Coverage of selected World of Warcraft and general MMO industry news.
Listener e-mails and discussions surrounding listener contributions.
FFA: Free for All
Live chat room Q&A session.

Outside of the Show
Raiding and guild relations are a frequent topic of discussion on the show. Haf and Stomp's guild is Bound on the US Staghelm server. Founded 6/09, Bound is a guild based upon constant improvement and communication. While raiding is their largest focus, it is balanced with all other aspects of the game. Bound is comprised of mature gamers who have a consistent vision of what it takes maintain raiding at a high level.
Bound is group of players who came together around Rawrcast, who have grown into a group of friends and colleagues who put as much into the guild as we get out of it. Since they have a fairly strict 21+ requirement, they tend to be very like minded adults who have come to share a common hobby, goals, and drive for progression and constant improvement.
