INN Announcement: Reboot of “The Meta Show”

Addition of New Co-Host, Format and Style

The Imperium News Network, EVE Online’s largest player-run media enterprise, is announcing today that it is rebooting its flagship EVE talk show “The Meta Show.”  The new program, which will be hosted by The Mittani and Brisc Rubal, will include an updated format, style and new content centered on nullsec and nullsec politics. 

“The Meta Show has been the backbone of INN for years,” said Jay Amazingness, the Meta Show’s producer. “We are excited about these new changes, and we look forward to producing a solid show that EVE players are excited to watch each week.”

The show, which debuted on INN in November of 2014 and will be celebrating its five year anniversary this month, has anchored the INN line-up, and remains the most watched program on the network.  It was anchored by DaBigRedBoat and the Mittani since February 2016. Past co-hosts have also included Lazarus Telraven and Nystrik. 

The reboot, which is set to launch on November 9, sees the addition of Brisc Rubal as a co-host along with The Mittani.  Rubal, who most recently served on CSM 13 and as a co-host on INN’s Friday night Open Comms Show, brings a new unique tone to the show.

“I’ve been a fan of the Meta Show for years,” Rubal said. “I’ve appeared as a guest a number of times, and I am very much looking forward to being a part of this incredible team of people and help move the Show forward into this new era in EVE Online.”

In addition to the new co-anchor, the show will also see new graphics, a new style and a new format. The goal of the reboot is to further focus the show on high level analysis of EVE Online and nullsec politics, with discussion from two of New Eden’s most respected commentators.  The show will also feature panels of knowledgeable guests, as well as in-depth discussions of the design and development of the game and its meta. 

DaBigRedBoat, one of INN’s most iconic and beloved show hosts, will continue to host “The Boat Show” on INN, which airs live on Twitch Friday nights at 00:00 UTC.  

The Meta Show airs live on Twitch every Saturday at 21:00 UTC, 4 PM Eastern Standard Time.

    I guess they got tired of boat shouting over the top of all the other guests on the show with whatever random idea the current conversation made pop up in his head.

    I hope you will get Boat as a guest from time to time. He brings in a lot of entertainment and funny controversities…

    But I’m really looking forward to this. Brisc is a really great guy and his calm way to argue will most surely increase the quality of the shows analyses.

    Also, please please please use this to further work on the quality of the (sound) setup. With volume output checked BEFORE the show starts etc. – for obvious reasons 🙂
