  1. Howdy. This is great. Thank you. Would it be possible to go back and make audio versions available for the other talking rooms?

  2. Thanks for putting this out on audio! I have the video queued up, but audio is so much more accessible for me (driving, working, etc).

    Please continue to publish audio version of The Talking Room. Great series.

  3. Great to have the audio!

    Adam, nice job on the interview (long-form, ya!). Great to hear Weir go deep on the technical.

    Will, I would happily subscribe, or just download, the audio from Lego with Friends, Tested Builds etc. I can reference the video if I take on the project, but your banter is often informative (and good fun).

  4. That was so interesting and I can’t wait to see the movie. I am always amazed by people who can think up a story then put it on paper so that it makes sense. Andy Weir gave us a great insight into that process and proved what an intelligent and interesting person he is. Thanks Adam for being a great host and arranging this interview, definately the best.

  5. I’ll say that I’ve ripped the audio of the Talking Room episodes before and listened to them. I think they all work wonderfully, including the episode 0 whwithen Adam’s mom. Hope you add it to a new feed.

  6. Please turn these into an audio podcast. Please please please…. ? Am I whining enough?

    Andy Weir is one of us!

  7. Im with

    Would love to listen to the audio from Lego with Friends. And yes Im in for the audio only files on the talking rooms so I can listen to them while I work.

  8. Yes, please post audio streams of The Talking Room for past and future shows! I love listening at work and going back and watching at home.

  9. Great interview! By the way, Andy Weir is my favorite writer. He inspired me to write and now I work at OnlineWritersRating . I hope to release my first book soon and hope that the public will like it.
