The first Sarcastic Gamer Podcast episode was released on June 28, 2007 and was hosted by Doc, Dave and Drew, who left Sarcastic Gamer after Episode 6 of the podcast. As the podcast was gaining popularity, more people joined as the hosts; on July 13, 2007, the second show was released with Lono, the new staff member, joining the trio. On August 24, 2007 Sarcastic Gamer joined the GamerCast Network, opening the show to a wider audience. On September 24, 2007, as the 9th episode was aired, Alex Shaw became a co-host. During the 30 minute show, the hosts discussed and argued about recent video gaming news in an entertaining and friendly way. There have been four longer specials, including episodes 10, 20 (each 45-minute long), 21 (60-minute long) and 100 (55-minutes). In addition, the crew tries to plan a live, special show for each convention they attend.
The show was referred to as the "Red Show", because of the how the podcast is synonymous with the site's logo and its importance over the different SG podcasts. The show, besides the usual podcast content, featured "Sarcastic Gamer news updates" in which fake news published on the main site is read out by Paul Christy, assisted by pre-recorded clips of one of the hosts (usually Adams) performing a role in the sketch.
The "Red Show" unexpectedly ended after completing 80 episodes, when Adrian "Lono" Cherikos left the Red Show due to feeling distant from the staff on the show and likely, some more undisclosed circumstances. Following this, the other two remaining hosts retired the "Red Show," but still continued to produce podcasts for the website.
The Red Show continued production on 4 September 2009 when Doc and Dave announced the cancellation of Sarcastic Gamer Radio at the FOX Sports Club in Seattle, WA and the continuing of the original podcast with Lono.
On Friday 5 February 2010, the Red Show officially reached its 100th episode. The show is frequently featured among iTunes podcasts, highly reviewed and subscribed and updated almost every Wednesday. On 20 September 2011, the Red Show officially ended their broadcast due to personal reasons.
Famous quotes containing the words red and/or sarcastic:
“All those girls
who wore the red shoes,
each boarded a train that would not stop.
Stations flew by like suitors and would not stop.
They all danced like trout on the hook.
They were played with.”
—Anne Sexton (19281974)
“Our children evaluate themselves based on the opinions we have of them. When we use harsh words, biting comments, and a sarcastic tone of voice, we plant the seeds of self-doubt in their developing minds.... Children who receive a steady diet of these types of messages end up feeling powerless, inadequate, and unimportant. They start to believe that they are bad, and that they can never do enough.”
—Stephanie Martson (20th century)
