I fear that all of this is driving the cast further away from the community rather than bringing it closer to it.
Interesting, how do you mean?
As it stands, the forum questions is the main way for most of the cast to interact with us, seeing how most of them don't find the time to browse and post on the forums (except for Mickey of course) and that's fine, I can understand that. It's kind of like Link said about sparking a conversation, that if I thought up a question I really wanted to ask, it propably would not get answered in the 30 sec. to 2 min timeslot every question is given.
This is why I love the Prototype and YIBR because the community gets to suggest topics for the guys to discuss. And in effect this is the same thing as the forum questions with the diffrence that the guys really start to riff on that topic. The guys on both shows have such good chemistry that it's always really inresting to listen to and I think that this way the rest of the community feels a sense of involvement when we go to the thread dedicated to the podcast and continue the discusion there.

I would like to see a "Game of the Week" (picked by the crew) and why (not a review really, just a few words and maybe an anecdote to go along with it. It could be any game at any point in time). I think that would spice up the podcast a little.
I agree with this because in a weird way the part of the podcast I most enjoy is the intro. Because it's just Tom and someone else just talking about the week ahead and what they've been playing recently. And somehow that feels comfortable and natural and something that would happen if I was just hanging with my friends.
(I could do without the circle jerk reference but it is noted)
Sorry about that. It was 4 am. and I wasn't feeling all that articulate.
