Tadpool

The Tadpool is a nickname for the chatroom that goes on when various Frogpants podcasts are recording live.

http://frogpants.com/the-frogpants-live-stream/

The nickname was coined by Scott Johnson during an early episode of The Morning Stream and is most often used to refer to chatters who frequent the IRC channel during that show. The name spawned from the name of Scott's studio - Frogpants. IRC chatters are like tadpoles in the great Frogpants pool, hence The Tadpool. The Tadpool Facebook group was created by Iyagovos on June 26th, 2011 and is constantly adding new members.

Tadpool PodcastsEdit

The Tadpool has even created its very own podcasts! http://www.tadpoolpodcasts.com

Initiative Check is the TadPool's gaming podcast, hosted by James "Iyagovos" Bartholomeou, Megan "imnotmegan", and Nick "Nizman" Nizzi.

Tadpool TechEdit

Tadpool Tech is the TadPool's technology show. It is hosted by CJ "Dragos_kai" Boat, Rachel "Geminii" Boat, and Jarred "JazTech" Azevedo, as well as Jonathan "JonFromSeattle" Seattle. It airs Fridays at 2pm est on VtwProductions.Com and can be heard on Itunes.

MemesEdit

Much like the Frogpants podcasts, The Tadpool has developed its own memes, inside jokes and culture. Here are some examples:

  • It's customary to greet everyone when entering The Tadpool and role play, 1)hugs, 2)sharing bacon, 3)throwing bricks of love.
  • It's also customary to greet the hosts and show guests in chat, even if they aren't in the chat themselves.
  • During Darrell The Trek Nerd's segment on TMS, the Tadpool places bets on how long it will take Darrell to answer the question. Darrell often delays with Trek birthdays and trivia. The Tadpole who guesses closest to the actual time is declared the winner!

Boothman by ironic
-Scott began referring to Brian mysteriously as "the man in the booth" on episode 1 of TMS. The nickname stuck and The Tadpool has created many depictions of Brian in his tiny recording booth. Boothman by Emmanuel Croft
