ECB reaches the 60th episode milestone on a bit of a bittersweet note as the Core Four gets together to record in The Seana one last time. To mark the occasion we produced the most normal episode we could under the circumstances. Come for the standard topics, stay for the never been thicker tension between Meola and Powers.

Seeing all the Oscar nominated moves is never easy so we decided to bring in some outside help who has seen them for our Oscar Preview. That help came in the form of Andrew Johnson from www.inreeldeep.com. Unfortunately after recording the episode we realized we had some technical difficulties where Sasso and Dubya’s audio disappeared so this became the ECB equivalent of Garfield Minus Garfield. Fortunately Christian and Andrew handled the bulk of the conversation so while the end result may be a bit awkward, most of the actual content remains.
Through the power of the Internet and Skype the Core Four (minus Powers) is back with an episode that marks them exceeding the entire output of 2014.

It’s 2015 and ECB is embracing new technologies such as the internet…and Skype. Yep, we did another Skype-cast and this one doesn’t sound like it was recording from inside a riding mower. As part of ECB’s new “lean and mean” branding I’ll wrap up this episode description and get on with the timestamps.

Like an oasis in the desert that is the ECB podcast feed the Core Four returns to The Seana for one last time in 2014. Join us for our traditional end of the year wrap-up where we discuss things we have already talked about in the past as well as our traditional throwing around of segment ideas that we will likely never get to. All that and the much-anticipated return of Pucks with Powers this week, on ECB.
