Stormcast Adds Willie “Dills” Gregory as a Full Time Host!

Dills & Stormcast

Stormcast officially announced that the Regular Hosting Team has expanded! Willie “Dills” Gregory joins the Stormcast Team as a Full Time Co-Host! The announcement came during the live record for episode 59 of Stormcast!

“This is a really exciting time for the Spazbot Studios and for Stormcast,” says Mick Montgomery, Founder of Spazbot Studios. “I have had the pleasure to interview Dills on a number of occassions for both Stormcast and The Starting Zone, and he is just great to work with. So, when the idea came up about him doing Stormcast, we instantly felt it was a good move for the show.”

Willie “Dills” Gregory is of course all too familar with Blizzard Properties and Heroes of the Storm. He is currently the co-host on the most popular World of Warcraft Podcast “The Instance” as well as the most popular Hearthstone Podcast “The Angry Chicken”. He also spent some time hosting “Into the Nexus” a Heroes of the Storm Podcast. He brings a wealth of knowledge about gaming in general, and has become quite the popular streamer on Twitch.TV!

This is yet another big victory for Stormcast in an already impressive 2015. The show is now over a year old having recently passed it’s 50th episode Mile Stone, as well as launching its Patreon Account! Notch and Mick were both invited by Blizzard to both the Heroes of the Dorm Finals and the Launch Event for Heroes of the Storm in Los Angeles. “The Growth of the show since Notch joined the team has just been amazing,” said Mick Montgomery, “Last year at this time, the show was struggling to find an identity and community, and to be honest, I was debating just shutting it down. Once Notch joined the show, he injected this amazing passion for the game. As a producer his energy helped me center in on the show’s over-all approach. Since then we have just continued to work hard to put out good content, and it shows as the listener base has grown of 1000% since the beginning of the year.”

Stormcast hosts Mick Montgomery and Notch head to Las Vegas this weekend to cover the America’s Championshiop for Heroes of the Storm the final step for North American, South American, Australian, and South East Asian teams before the Final at Blizzcon. The entire team will then head to Blizzcon in November where they will appear together on-stage at World of Podcasts part of the Con Before the Storm!

SH Website Banner 2015v2

The time has arrived to debut a BRAND NEW Podcast from Spazbot Studios! SUPER HEROIC, a podcast about Comic Books that Turn into Movies and TV Shows, is ready for its grand reveal. After a TON OF WORK behind the scenes, interviews with guest co-hosts, meetings with composers, and late night calls with graphic designers the TIME has arrived to debut SUPER HEROIC!

Officially SUPER HEROICwill Debut July 29th, 2015! However, rumor has it an episode ZERO will debut a bit earlier than that! Mick Montgomery, Founder of Spazbot Studios, had this to say about the Project and its debut.

“We are very excited to finally bring SUPER HEROIC to Light. This is a labor of love project no doubt about it, and in many ways its the show I most wanted to do under the Spazbot Studios Banner. I think this is an awesome time to be a fan of comic books and a lover of great television and feature films. We want to do a show that talks about this incredible time. SUPER HEROIC is that show.”

SUPER HEROICwill have an innovative format. Each episode should be 10 – 20 minutes long and each week listeners can expect 3 – 4 episodes. Yes, you read that correctly, 3 – 4 episodes a week. And that is not even counting the potential bonus content in the works.

Super Heroic will be available on iTunes and Stitcher as well as where all other awesome podcasts are downloaded and consume. If you want the latest information on the show feel free to visit the website or follow the show on TWITTER!

Do you enjoy a good comic book? Do you enjoy it when that Comic Book is adapted into a Television Show or Feature Film? Are you partial to conversations in which all of those things are discussed? Do you possess what others would refer to as ‘an entertaining personality’? Then maybe you should consider becoming a Host for Super Heroic, a brand new Podcast/Video Show in development at Spazbot Studios!

Super Heroic is a different kind of ‘comic book’ show. The primary focus of the show is to cover Television Programs and Feature films adapted from Comic Books! We would tell you more in this post, but that would ruin the surprise for the audience! If you are interested in being considered for a host, please, send an email to mick@spazbotstudios.com! Include answers to the following questions! If we think you are the right fit we will contact you!

  • What is your favorite Comic Book and why?
  • How long have you been reading Comic Books?
  • What is your favorite Television Show adapted from a Comic Book and why?
  • What is your favorite Feature Film adapted from a Comic Book and why?
  • Who would you cast to play The Punisher in Netflix’s new series?

Please, have fun and be honest about your answers. Also, we’re not necessarily JUST seekig walking/talking Wikipedia’s on comic book lore. Comic Book knowledge is great, and will be a factor, but more so your passion, energy and personality are the most important thing. We are looking for both Men and Women to be hosts on the show because we appreciate different points of view. Also, we are examining permanent co-host positions as well as regular guest host positions. Good Luck, and we look forward to hearing from you!

The Curtain Closes on Manifesto Show!

SB Manifesto Show Slider Banner v3

It saddens us to report that Manifesto Show is no longer going to happen. This may come as no shock to many of you, as a new episode has not been recorded since November of 2014. “The show was ambitious and creative and wonderful, but in the end, the process to produce weekly originaly hour long stories was just to much given our current schedule,” said Spazbot Founder and Host of Manifesto Show, Mick Montgomery, “Ultimately, this was my show, my creative expression. As I looked at the work I was doing for Manifesto Show, and the work I have been doing for the show since it last aired, I came to the conclusion I would rather just write a book. So, I have been using the time to write a new book, which we hope to release this year.”

Manifesto Show was a re-launch of the Montgomery Manifesto, a Podcast that aired between 2012 and 2013, before it was originally shelves and the re-launched in 2014. Despite some wonderful feedback from listeners the show failed to catch a running start wtih listeners despite a strong push in October 2014. The URL for the show will not be re-newed and in time the iTunes and Stitcher Feeds will be taken down as well. For those of you, who DID download and listen, thank you so much for your support!
