Jared: I'm not a Thumb so don't take this as the word of God or anything, but I'm guessing the main reason behins the 3MA deal is to increase exposure. Currently it's just a bunch of links on a subpage of Troy Goodfellow's blog, and while it's a good blog and all I guess it's not necessarily the first thing people will stumble across when looking for podcasts? I don't know. There's also the benefit of cross pollination as Idle Thumbs readers discover Three Moves Ahead and vice versa. And forums and other infrastructural stuff as mentioned on the ProgressCast.
For me, Three Moves Ahead is the only podcast I've ever really enjoyed that isn't Idle Thumbs, so it seems like a perfect match to me. I hope the folks from the two casts start appearing as guests on each others' casts more often, too.
Now I want to play Pikmin 2. :(
I'm not sure I really get the "WE HAVE SUBSUMED THREE-MOVES-AHEAD INTO OUR GLORIOUS BULK" thing.
Is it a hosting-costs thing? Or a content curation thing? Or a regular guests thing?
So yes, please name that thing.
@Ben: That would be Jake misquoting Jimmy Stewart in Vertigo. He's the only one who ever says it. Jake is a weird guy.
I'm thrilled that my two favorite podcasts will be working together, couldn't be more pleased.
On a complete and utter side note, can I ask where the "color your hair" meme comes from? It's the only one you guys repeat that I can't place. Heavy Rain maybe, judging from the voice?
It'll be recorded as it happens and uploaded to our Twitch.tv page. No worries!
NOOOO!!! I'll be in school when the live stream starts. Would you be able to upload the live stream to idlethumbs.net or something similar? Just like you did with "Burnin' Down the Wolfman". I need to see this!
Adding 3MA was a great idea. Cheers to all involved! Also, I wont be around for the countdown, so congrats, thumbs. No pressure ;)
I love that you guys still call us "The Readers". It makes your fans sound so ominous.

Congratulations to the Thumbs on the well deserved success of their Kickstarter. I can't wait for the show proper to come back. Now I have some Three Moves Ahead to listen to.
Listening to my first 3MA podcast now. It's Terrific!™
In all seriousness, I'm listening to their discussion of Alpha Centauri now and I'm really enjoying it, I can tell that they'll be a perfect fit alongside Idle Thumbs.
Congrats on the campaign guys, you deserve it! Can't wait for the live show!
