@w00d + Epic-Fu = Best Thing Ever!

I am beyond excited. A few days ago Sarah Atwood (affectionately known as @w00d online) posted that she had just been hired by Epic-Fu, one of my all-time favorite video podcasts. She also made a post on the Epic-Fu blog about her first day on the job.

If you follow Mahalo Daily (a video podcast put out by, you will remember Sarah from Mahalo Vlog Idol. She was one of the 6 finalists and that was where I first discovered her. She has a great style and I think if you asked me then whether she would be a better Mahalo Daily host or an Epic-Fu correspondent, I probably would have gone with the latter. After reading her blog and her geeky interests, I think you might agree.

Yesterday, Epic-Fu's latest episode featured her for the very first time. They have been trying out new people and her segment was by FAR the best one recently. She does a great job pretending to be drunk (unless she wasn't pretending...) and being that chick at the club who just kind of rambles on about stuff. In that way she gave reviews about The Dark Knight, Dr. Horrible, and a few other superhero things. Her expanded reviews are available on "Sarah's Rave Reviews!"

It was very entertaining and if they decide to make that her standard delivery method, it wouldn't be a bad thing. Then again, is it possible to get typecast on a podcast? Hopefully they will use more of her skills than the drunken ones. :P

Here is the episode...her segment is near the end of it, but it's a good episode overall, so I won't tell you the exact time signature:

All I can say is "GO, Sarah, Go!" I feel like Epic-Fu has been kind of wonky since the new "season" began and @w00d might be just the one to get everything back on track.
