Join Aradus, Smashies, Chyph3r, and Johan this week as we go through the new Patch Notes that were a major catalyst in today's Jita Riots.
NOTE: Many extremely intelligent people will be taking to media to talk about why this New Dawn patch is completely terrible. While we don't necessarily agree with them, we set out with the goal of trying to find a 'silver lining' to the upcoming changes. Hopefully, we presented a few.
We encourage you to listen to other livestreams, podcasts, and check out EVE Online news outlets to get a balanced view of these changes, and to see how some of the larger parts of this patch (such as compression/waste) can potentially lead to meta-altering effects in a very negative way. This episode, however, does not focus on the math/details of that (Aradus isn't smart enough to figure that stuff out).
The Patch Post That Started It All
Aradus flying solo this week. I kind of decided to talk about how having a 'corporate culture' outside of EVE ONLINE is one of the strongest forces within the game. We look at how the Goons approach to group membership helped them remain strong in the face of overwhelming odds, and how other groups can learn from that.
This is an episode to kiss the butt of the bee; we can all learn from the groups that have a solid, historical culture that they used as a foundation for their success.
If you are a corp CEO/Director, Alliance level leader, or whatever....this episode's discussion topic is important to your future success in Eve.
If you are a line member and dissatisfied with the level of interaction within your corporation, maybe this topic touches on why that is, and what you can do about it.
Thanks for listening. We'll be going live from EVE VEGAS next week!
This week we're joined by new co-host Johan Pendersen, as we talk about:
1. People bringing real-world politics and bias into EVE Online, and the damage that does to the community.
More Reddit Linky
2. Big PAPI announcement. Is WWB2 drawing to a close, or just more snooze-fest and Reddit spam? Does FRAT hold the purse strings, and control the next move? Will the NEXT blue donut focus on the ever-growing strength of FRAT?
4. Oscar Wilde said, "Nowadays people know the price of everything, and the value of nothing." We discuss how that in our current "ZKill mentality" within EVE, that can definitely be true....but how understanding the VALUE of a ship (no matter how inexpensive or pricey) should mean more to us as players than the price tag.

EVE LOW LIFE DISCORD: https://discord.gg/KDdCYb6ybt
Today we had the pleasure of sitting down with Martin Lockheart (Discord: Martin Lockheart#2044), CEO of Lockheart Trading Company [LHTC], head of the Hardly Competent Alliance, and one of the founders of the Kairos Initiative/Kairos Coalition.
We talked about his roots as a hi sec industrialist, the move to Low Sec, conflicts with Snuffed Out and Dock Workers, and eventually his role in the conquest of Provi and the fall of ProviBloc. Furthermore, we discussed the challenges of going from a war-focused attacker to sov-holding alliance.
Big thanks to Martin for coming on the show!
WILL YOU JOIN US? (LHTC recruiting video from back in the day)
In Memory of Binette Evingod (by Space Pope)
This week, Doc (Spence) flies solo as Chyph3r has been SUPER busy at work, so he gets all salty about Redditors and their complaining, the new CSM and a lack of Low Sec representation, and more.
We also briefly discuss the Binette Evingod memorial roam (more on that in a future montage show), as well as the challenges of Low Sec life/recruiting.
Oh, and Stain is weird to roam....
