How & why did you get into Focused Fire Chat?

I #blameJustin – this whole thing stemmed from the our chance meeting and his crazy lack of care about things like “how are we going to do this?” Check out the Thank You snippet for more details on this whole story.

Favorite Destiny Quote

…there’s always room in the mind for hope. It’s the crack that lets the Light in…[They] won’t spare the City. They won’t even thank you. But that’s the thing about Light. You never know where it will shine.

How & why did you get into Focused Fire Chat?

Well this is a long story! I met BlueCrew86 through the leadership channels of the Dads of Destiny. Before long we were clogging up chats designated for actual business with discussions of timelines and the nature of the darkness. That led to Blue creating a stand-alone Band chat specifically for discussing lore. The conversations in those early days drew me in and never turned me loose. It was Blue’s idea to have a weekly recap stream and from there things really escalated quickly. But the thing that keeps me coming back is our little pocket of the interwebs that is our wonderful FFC community.

How & why did you get into Focused Fire Chat?

I was searching podcasts to listen to about Destiny on my commute to work & stumbled across this one about a month after its founding.
I really liked that the format stuck to what we know we can prove, mainly, and found it much easier to listen to. Also Justin was funny and Blue’s laugh can’t help but make you smile (no, I did not get paid to say that).

How & why did you get into Focused Fire Chat?

When I decided to really dive into Destiny lore I was listening to a bunch of Destiny Podcasts. I came across FFC and started tweeting at them talking about stuff, like you do. At some point they asked if I wanted to guest on the show and I was honored to be apart of it. Soon that became a regular thing and here we are!
