It's a great week of new releases and new content on the sites! We have a new DVD in IWC's Mountain State Madness, and the latest RWA show on deck to go out next! InsertCointoBegin.com starts the building steps to their first video games podcast (available soon) and so much more! Let's get started!
Sorg's Tip of the Week
Have you played with Google+ yet? One of the first things that caught my eye when it opened to limited numbers about a year ago was something called Hangouts. This seemed like the next evolution in video chat. You find yourself in a window with one large featured video, and up to nine people along the bottom. As you converse with eashother, the view shifts from one person to the other. Since it's inception, it's become the way we communicate during meetings, watching events, and more. Every Monday, you can find a few members of the Wrestling Mayhem Show from Pittsburgh, North Carolina, and Texas watching the WWE RAW "together". Meetings are starting to be scheduled this way now, giving us a new way to see everyone's reactions.
Now, Hangout OnAir has been rolled out. This is exciting. What OnAir does is allow you to A) stream your Hangout via Youtube and B) post that conversation directly to YouTube after. A tool like this gives anyone one click access to an online version of everything I attempt to accomplish in my podcast studio. If you ever wanted to do a "talking head" show with your friends from all over about video games, politics, or whatever you wanted to talk about, you can do it. This rolled with the tools coming up in Hangout including screenshare, showing whatever is on your desktop. You can do some great things with this tool to express yourself and continue the conversation.

Wrestling Mayhem Show 321: A Warm Summerlyn Night
This week, Sorg, DJLunchbox, and Wrestlefan are joined about a crazy Hangout of WMS fans to talk WWE Over the Limit, 3 hour RAW, TNA IMPACT Live, Brook Hogan’s know how in wrestling, and we look at the best memories of women’s wrestling.
We are also joined by our guest tonight, representing Anarchy Championship Wrestling in Texas, and hot off of the only known “wrestling prom”, Rachel Summerlyn! We talk with her about her lineage with WWE great Ivan Putski, her path thus far, her hardcore wrestling debut, vegetables, and so much more in an early candidate for interview of the year!
AwesomeCast 102: Find My Lokay
We are joined by our very own Burgher in Beantown, Jim Lokay this week. The show kicks off with a touching story about a man, and his iPad’s journey throughout the Northeast. That heartwrenching story is followed-up by an e-mail from our Southern compatriot, AJ, as we do an East Coast comparison of cable service. In a related story, we touch upon news of Comcast raising their data caps in test markets. While we’re on the topic of customer service and data usages, we segue into discussions of AT&T and Verizon reworking their “grandfathered” data plans. And, we wrap things up with some lighterhearted stories about saving money on a more accurate Kinect-like device for the XBox, and about Space X’s first launch over the weekend. So check it out. And, if you like it, join us live Tuesdays at 7:00 p.m. EST. Join the AwesomeCast on Twitter, Facebook and be sure to follow us on iTunes in both video and audio formats, as well as YouTube, Boxee, Roku, and Blip.tv!
