Divided by Werewolves


First things first, hi. I know it's been forever since I was active here. I can't for the life of me imagine anyone still stops by, but on the off chance, let me apologize for abandoning the blog here. Truth be told, I had delusions of grandeur. I was heading into a project that I thought was going to be huge, and unfortunately circumstances arose which kept it from reaching it's full potential. It has been a rough couple of years, I tell ya. 

I've since moved into another area of interest though, something that I've talked about wanting to do for years, and that is podcasting. I know, who doesn't have a podcast right? Well, better late than never I suppose. I finally got over my anxiety about my southern accent and started up a show with my buddy Brandon. You may remember him from the long forgotten, but amazing, Suburban Joe blog, or Disparate Elements, and of course the GameShark podcast "Jumping the Shark". We've been friends for years now, after initially meeting on an Xbox message board. We tend to agree on most things when it comes to our chosen forms of entertainment, save for one very important thing, the best on-screen werewolf transformation of all time. I say American Werewolf in London, he says The Howling, from this disagreement, the title Divided by Werewolves was born. I'll segue from my brief introduction to the far superior one he wrote back from when the show was just starting... 

Divided by Werewovles is two guys, Mitch and Brandon who met many, many years ago on a super secret Xbox Live message board designed to bring together people who wanted to play games on Live together without running the risk of playing with random, racist 13 year-olds. You could only get into the site if you a) knew someone who was already a member and b) was a super cool person. This is a long way of saying that Mitch and Brandon are two super cool people. 
They’re also two people that share a lot of the same likes in TV, comics, movies and video games. After many hours talking about obscure horror movies and not so obscure superhero movies while playing Destiny and Helldivers and Overwatch they decided to bring their conversations to Twitch and YouTube and Divided by Werewolves was born.
We want you to come watch us on Twitch, join in on the discussion (or argument), hang out with us while we stream and feel like you’re in the room with us, cold drink in one hand, controller in the other, playing along and having fun. When we’re not streaming, you can catch up on past broadcasts on our YouTube channel or check out this Tumblr for pop culture silliness. 
We broadcast every other Wednesday at 9PM EST on twitch.tv/rotundbatman and twitch.tv/MisterBinky. Subscribing to one or both channels is the best way to make sure you never miss a broadcast. If you want to watch both broadcasts at the same time, services like multitwitch.tv and twitchster.tv have got you covered. Past broadcasts can be found on our YouTube channel at youtube.com/DividedByWerewolves along with other streaming sessions and random highlights. 
We’d love to hear from you so drop us a line at brandon@dividedbywerewolves.com or mitch@dividedbywerewovles.com. You can also follow us on Twitter at twitter.com/Mister_Bones and twitter.com/MisterBinky or twitter.com/DivByWerewolves. 
Brandon lives near Atlanta, GA with his wife, two kids and two dogs and Mitch lives near Auburn, AL with his two kids and a very fat hamster named William. They all told us to tell you “Hello.” 
Most of everything there is still accurate, save for the fact that we no longer live stream the show. What sounded good in theory ended up being too ambitious for two guys who rely on console streaming because they have no interest in high end pc gaming. So we ended up going to the more traditional podcasting model. We record every other Wednesday, and the shows go up the following Thursday. We are still streaming however, just not together most of the time, and while we do chat when we play together, it isn't like we have a topic planned out to discuss. Then there's Drunkwatch, which happens every Friday night at 10pm where a bunch of us who have been online buddies for years get together, drink, and play Overwatch. It's fun, if you're into watching aging drunk gamers attempt to play a competitive online multiplayer shooter.

So yeah, that's what I've been up to. If any of this sounds interesting to you, hit any of those links above. We are also on Facebook, and you can find the past episodes of the podcast here, or look for us on iTunes by searching for Divided By Werewolves. As always, we are eternally grateful to any who listen, and please feel free to interact with us.
