We’re a day late, but that just means we’re an entire day better!

There isn’t all that much we can provide you with to signify exactly how great this episode is, but here are a couple of things nonetheless:

  • Arkenor sneezes right at the beginning of Quiz Kids. You have been warned.
  • We’ve got some great background music by Caravan Palace in this episode. If you like them, please buy their music, go to their shows or spread the good word.
  • There’s also the Christmas theme (sorry, “Frostfell theme”) from Everquest 2 in there.
  • World of Warcraft patch 4.3 is out, but Arkenor and Petter don’t want to talk about it.
  • What do you think we should do for our 1-year anniversary on the podcast? Get in touch and let us know!


Claims of the Normal

Claims of the Normal was the first show to launch on the CSICON Network. Originally intended as the only show to run on the website csicon.org (the 'con' in CSICON stands for Claims of the Normal, after all), it quickly became the launch vehicle for so much more. Breki and Petter started the show, and got Arkenor on board, and it all just went from there.

The show, over time, was replaced by The MMOsketeers, starring Petter, Arkenor and Teppo, as well as Instanews, starring Breki and Jack. None of these shows exist in their original form, but the legacy created by Claims of the Normal lives on.
