The Opinion Zone Podcast

Recommended Posts

Well hello everyone! I am a person called Jay and we do a podcast. I know episodes are occasionally posted on the front page, but since the podcast is a sister to the site rather than an intergral part of it, (plus I've seen staff share their stuff all the time), I thought I'd share my little podcast with you guys!


ITUNES: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-sonic-show-podcast/

The Opinion Zone is an Explicit rated podcast featuring myself and a group of Sonic fans discussing a whole world of Sonical topics. The only rule here is that NO opinion will be forbidden. The whole point of this show is be allowed to have an opinion and not be worried what the internet thinks of it!

The podcast traditionally covers a similar format every week which goes as follows:

  • Todays Topic: Sometime news, however we find ourselves jumping into topics about the community in general.
  • Defeat Donnie: Every episode we let a member of our audience challenge Donnie to see who is the more knowledgeable Sonic fan.  For those that do not know, Donnie is a member of staff for TSSZ News, Sonic Paradox, Radio Sega, The Sonic Show, FTCR, plus a regular guest on things like Tails Channel and EVERY SONIC THING EVER. For someone who is all over the community like a rash, it is only fair that we make sure he can justify such a position. Some people have suggest the quiz is tailored to his disadvantage, however I cannot comment on this.
  • Ask Uncle Poxxy: We call a special life advice hotline where the mysterious Uncle Poxxy answers a variety of fan dilemmas, all sent in to the show from our lovely listeners. Questions have included delights as "What Sonic toy can I use to make me wetter than Labyrinth Zone", and "How do I tell my Mom I have a shrine for Big", we also have some more serious and heart warming tales too.
  • Fuad's Things: This (now axed segment) Saw Fuad bring to the table three random pieces of Sonic news from the last week for the group to discuss.

We also have some features that randomly pop up from time to time:

  • The Newly-wed Game: The host (me) will go behind one of the co-hosts backs and talk to one of their boyfriends/girlfriends/family and pull a suprise quiz based on the Newly-wed tv gameshow where I threaten to see how well the they know their loved one or face that person disowning them forever.
  • The Opinion Zone's Amateur Dramatic Society: We are sent fanfics all the time and sometimes we will visit our amateur dramatic club for a on the spot live reading.

Episodes so far!

...I really need to find time to contribute to this in some way.

And looks like you did Hoggy buddy ol' pal!

Because the latest Opinion Zone is out with you in it for some damn reason.


Quick note: This was recorded 2 weeks prior to the SXSW panel, if I'm remembering it right? Right?

Well holy cow! Things are getting pretty bad in here because @Jay (Eggemann) and the crew are talking about their top 3 favorite Sonic villains! But wait, there's more! Who is that snarky asshole Canadian on Defeat Donnie? His voice and crap jokes sounds so familiar? There's probably some random crap that happened in Ask Uncle Poxxy too but I ain't spoiling the fun for that, so give it a listen and figure the answers like! Will Jay actually follow the guest on Twitter (which goes by ThatSoni, for curiosity's sake)? How many questions does Uncle Poxxy get?

See ya in the next 2 weeks!



Papa bless, things are finally back on track as we got another episode of the Opinion Zone! This episode is about @Jay (Eggemann) and the crew (that's not Canadian so I can't share my poutine with anyone which makes me sad :() and they touch upon the drought of Sonic info so they begin to think about maybe they've grown too old for Sonic (or the fanbase, it's interchangeable at this point) where Tom rambles for like 10 minutes and it sounds deep, it could be just nonsensical white noise but hey, it sounds deep. Including a Sonic-community focused Defeat Donnie where we got a returning contestant from a previous episode. Will this guy win the quiz again or will Donnie get a (very rare) win for once? Also we have a rather interesting Ask Uncle Poxxy, where Jay repeats a question that was already answered in the previous episode (lol professionalism what's that?) and revealing a dark secret of the entire section.
