Claims of the Normal #69: One Year Anniversary!

1 hour 42 mins - Published Fri, Jan 6, 2012 by Arkenor Oakshadow, Breki Tomasson, Mat Westhorpe and Petter Mårtensson

It’s been a year since we recorded the first episode of Claims of the Normal, and here we are with an extra special, extra long, extra wonderful episode. Special guest, Seismic Stan!

Here are a couple of things you might want to know about this episode:

  • Black Peter – or “Zwarte Piet” is the name of Santa Claus’s helper in Holland.
  • Some people have been kicked from Star Wars: The Old Republic, for various reasons. Most of these are genuinely exploiting, however.
  • You can get down and dance if you want to avoid taking damage, however.
  • Seismic Stan can be found here and here and here and here.

Thank you for joining us for this fantastic year of podcasts! A special thanks to people like Jon Broadley, Skorp, Seismic Stan, Slurms and everybody else that has either been a guest or sent in content for us to use on Quiz Kids or something similar. We love you all and hope to continue to bring you great stuff during 2012!


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.
