    Detective Toad: Mushroom of Mystery - Episode 1

    DescriptionToad is just an unqualified Mushroom who decided to fight crime after several rejections from the 3000 Brigade, the true keepers of the peace in the Nintendo Universe. Now he fancies himself a problem-solving porcini, a caper cracking cremini, a super sleuthing shiitake… a Mushroom of Mystery for the little guy when the 3KB won't help. With no training and few skills, the adventures of Detective Toad are sure to be filled with haphazard hijinks, misguided mystery, and fungal follies!



    In our first instalment, we find Detective Toad in his newly opened Detective Office waiting for his first case. A desperate call for help and poor phone service leave detective Toad with a client, and without a clue. Will Toad be able to crack the case and prove he is the Mushroom of Mystery he claims to be? Will he save the day and prove he has what it takes to be a hero? Will this be just the start of an ongoing Nintendo Noir podcast from the 3KB? Tune in to W3KB Radios first thrilling episode of Detective Toad: Mushroom of Mystery to find out!

    ParticipantsScott ErtzHostScott is a developer who has worked on projects of varying sizes, including all of the PLuGHiTz Corporation properties. He is also known in the gaming world for his time supporting the DDR community, through DDRLover and hosting tournaments throughout the Tampa Bar Area.

    Trey DavisHostTrey was born into a tech career. Instead of going to summer camp as a child, Trey spent summers working at the local news station with his father, an Emmy award winning news director. He honed his audio skills singing in a band, and later worked as a lighting and audio technician for a theme park. Within two years he became the lead technician for the entire park, which included a fully operational CNN sponsored TV station, a full theater and a circus. Later, he became the lead lighting and audio tech for one of the Ringling Bros. circuses, with a stint as a clown for the pure joy of performing. It was at Ringling that he met his wife, who he calls the most beautiful, loving, and funny person he has ever met, and who is also the creator of the 3000 Brigade. Trey was a performer with the 3000 Brigade for nine shows, as well as hosting the 3000 Brigade Podcast, while still doing media on the side. Trey currently edits and cleans audio for PLuGHiTz shows and has also been a special events host.

    Road to MizuCon - Episode 25

    DescriptionThis week, it's finally time for the 10th installment of our stage show at Mizucon 2015! We're joined by F5 Live: Refreshing Technology talking with the cast and crew about this and past shows.
    ParticipantsScott ErtzHostScott is a developer who has worked on projects of varying sizes, including all of the PLuGHiTz Corporation properties. He is also known in the gaming world for his time supporting the DDR community, through DDRLover and hosting tournaments throughout the Tampa Bar Area.

He has also helped found a student software learning group, the ASCII Warriors.

    Nicholas DiMeoHostWith over ten years of audio engineering experience, Nick's addition to PLuGHiTz Corporation is best served when he is behind the mixing board every Sunday night to produce the audio side of F5 Live: Refreshing Technology, Piltch Point and PLuGHiTz Live Night Cap. While mixing live every week, his previous radio show hosting experience gives him the ability to co-host as well, giving each show a unique flare with his slightly off-center, yet still realistic take on all things tech. An integral part of the show, you can find Nick always enveloped in coming up with new (and sometimes crazy) ideas and content for the show and you can always expect the most direct opinion on the stories that he feels need to be shared with the world. During the few hours where Nick isn't sleeping or working on ways to improve the company, he spends his free time going to hockey and football games and playing the latest titles on Xbox 360. Email him for his gamertag and add him today for a fun escape from the normal monotony and annoyance that the Xbox LIVE gaming community can sometimes be!
