If you subscribe to our show through iTunes, you will need to update your subscription. I apologize for the inconvenience. What was supposed to be a seamless transition for you, our listeners, has turned into the exact opposite. In order to keep receiving new shows on iTunes you’ll need to subscribe using the button below. If you’re a new subscriber as of today (July 22, 2011) you don’t need to do anything.

I remember when we started the show I said to the guys, “We’ll give it 10 episodes and see what kind of response we get.” Later it turned into, “We’ll go for 6-months and see what happens.” And now here we are a few years in and nearly 140 episodes deep and we’re still chuggin’ along! Both show and beer-wise.
We’d like to thank all of you who listen to us every week… or even occasionally. Without you… we’d still be doing this show, it’s just nobody would be listening.
Below is our very first episode of the Who Asked You? show. Back then the show hovered around 30-minutes each week. It was pre-recorded on MiniDV video tape and we had a hodgepodge of different microphones (hence the difference in sound between hosts). It’s painful for me to listen to this. And the image of our old site design (left) is like looking at embarrassing baby pictures. But, we thought you’d all get a kick out of it. At least we’re not naked in a bathtub. Those pics are on a different server!
One of our original co-hosts, Keith Fearnow, was long gone by the time this capture of the old site was taken, but the design was the same, so I threw in the old header for shits-n-giggles. In the image you can read about Episode 79 and see the way the Show Links were poorly laid out. This was the final week before we switched to the current design thanks largely to WordPress. The old site had a built in Who Asked You? Store courtesy of Amazon.com’s affiliate services, which we later replaced with forums that were rather short-lived.
I know what some of you may be thinking, “3-years? Big deal!” Well it is a big deal to us. When it’s your own creation and something you’ve spent so much time molding and developing it’s cool to pass these little milestones and think back on all that’s happened so far. So lets all do just that and listen to Episode 1 (no titles back then)… and here’s to another 3 years… give or take…

As for the Show Links of our first episode? There were none except for comparison pictures of the old Star Trek cast with their JJ Abram’s counterparts and a YouTube video of a lady on THE PRICE IS RIGHT telling then new host, Drew Carey she had to go potty.
Do you see that button above? That will take you to our Twitter page. Yes, you read correctly… Who Asked You? is now on Twitter. We fought the good fight. We tried to avoid this stupid site. But alas, it’s for the greater good of our show. It’s one more place that gets our name out there and can mean good exposure for the show. After all, you know us, we are attention whores.
Couple of things… if you scroll down a bit you’ll see in the right sidebar our “Latest Tweets”. Those are just that, the last 5 Tweets. On the left side you’ll see “Recent Comments”. Not only are those the most recent comments made on our posts, but if you reply to or re-Tweet any of our Twats it’ll automatically add them to the comments on the related post.
What’s that? You didn’t know you could leave comments on our site’s postings all this time? Oh for Christ sake… Yes! You can! Just create a log-in and comment to your heart’s desire. We’d love to read ‘em. And you can even upload your own avatar! See you on Twitter!
