40K Radio Interview

Behold! I haven’t listened back to it yet, but here’s the link to my 40K Radio interview. I start at 1 hour, 45 minutes in, apparently.


All I remember about it is that it was hellish fun, I was pretending not to be nervous, and we laughed a lot.

  1. Congratulations on your interview – easily the best part of the show! And I’ll be going out to buy Soul Hunter as soon as I get the cash from my kidneys 😛

  2. Season 4 did suck… I wonder if god woke up in the shower a few years later.

  3. Oh Aaron, being bored and slightly drunk with nothing but the internet to entertain me… whatever happened to ‘Immortal’?

  4. Listening to your part now and I’m laughing heavily. You’re making me grin at your silliness! 😡

  9. Soul Hunter…..bone chilling…..WHAT!?!?!
    Awesome sauce, yes. Scary….no.

    And apparently they never read Dead Sky Black Sun….as that was twisted to WTF?!? proportions.

    Plus the Imperium isn’t exactly winning either.

    • So right! Everyone’s dying to the hordes of Tyranids and Necrons. We need some new intergalactic race now for the trifecta of death races!

      Aaron, you make that race. And name it ‘Uberoids.’

      • I can’t say I enjoy being mocked so early in the morning.

  10. Man, you sound totally like Heath Ledger. Great interview and kudos for flying the banner of the mighty drink!

  11. You don’t half sound posh talking with the yanks – here I was thinking you were some sort of Irish chav made good. Your cover picture does you no credit.

  12. Bit of a big one and I’m a bit of a negative nelly, but the world needs its naysayers…

    Listening to this makes the efforts to save 6 Music all the more important. 40K radio is excellent by the standards of US radio, but Fearne Cotton’s job is safe. We forget how spoiled we are in the UK.

    20 minutes in, nothing on 40k. A lot about fast food.

    Also, for Christ’s sake, it’s a “T” in Boota, it would be written Booda if it were meant to be pronounced that way, surely?

    Wee, tournaments. And product placement.

    Wee, luggage. And product placement.

    “GW has no presence at Adepticon…” Who do you work for Aaron? I know BL is a company within the corporation, but that’s a bit off. Also, they’ve got a link from the actual Graham McNeil!

    Wee, guns? I’m fine with product placement, just put down the shooter!

    Wee, nerd tourism and medical fraud. He has a product to sell? Wow, really? “Oh, Britain, Dr. Who?” Jesus wept; we’ve all got bad teeth, too. It’s a pity them Geek Nation dudes can’t sort us our flights for D&D. Mad props to Katie as well, for schooling them in the ways of drink.

    Yay! Aaron! Finally.

    When these guys talk about drinking, I have images of that night Chris passed out on the floor of K. To quote Jack Bauer, “shouldna been playing with the adults.”

    Very different tone to your interview since you weren’t trying to flog something. Should you have been? Some quite interesting stuff and you sounded like you were having fun. It’s the one feature where you can tell stuff has been edited out, and considering what stayed in, it must have been really libellous and/or offensive.

    I don’t think I’m hitting that RSS feed yet, though. Too much nonsense, too many ads.

    Also, what’s with ragging on the Tyranids?

    • Dude, it was specifically an interview show. 40K Radio is usually codex reviews, discussions about the game, the company, and basically what’s it’s like to be an adult that plays 40K in the wake of a career, kids, money restraints, and so on.

      Also, nothing was edited out of my segment. Make of that what you will.
