Episode 102 Guest Revealed, Ask Your Questions, and Rate Us!
We’re happy to announce that the first guest episode of The Freelancers will star Internet-famous writer/podcaster Justin McElroy from Joystiq.com. The episode is scheduled to release at the end of this week.
As it stands, The Freelancers now has over 25 confirmed guests scheduled for future episodes, from more than a dozen outlets within the games industry.
Some people have asked what we mean by “Season One” for the current run of The Freelancers. Each season will be comprised of 12 episodes — the first 11 with a special guest and the last as a recap episode with Xav and Kyle. After a short hiatus, the next season will begin. In order to keep ideas and stories fresh, we think this is the best route to take.

The Freelancers is a podcast hosted by Xav de Matos and Kyle Horner (of BigCast "fame").
Besides being extremely charming, both hosts are video game journalists for a number of the industry's biggest brands, including: Joystiq and GamePro.
The weekly internet radio program focuses on current projects, stories about getting into the industry, and tales of hilarious (and terrifying) moments reporting on the world of video games.
During bi-weekly numbered episodes the pair welcome a special guest who share their own horror stories and tips about making it as a games journalist. Every other week the guys release TFL BONUS!, a bonus episode where Xav and Kyle discuss what they're playing and some of the work they are currently doing in and around the internet.
