Cuddlesquid brought me here.

Through force, through allure, what? Come on man, details.

Yes.

(Though really the force and allure belong entirely to the ridiculists; I just gave Juice a link.)

Was linked in the Something Awful gamers.txt thread before it got gassed because goons.

Same here, only I found it in the D&D (or was it PYF?) thread about TVTropes. I'd bet lots of listeners found the podcast through that thread, since I can remember the F+ TVTropes episode being linked to literally a dozen times or so over the span of several months.

I used to play on Garbage Day every occasionally; I was there when Captain Profanity read Kent Hovind's doctoral dissertation.  When I started hearing about F+ (I think through "we're recording" showing up in the Garbage Day or PoE steam groups), at first I avoided it like the plague, but then, when I found out what it actually was, that it was basically the same as That Thing What the Captain Done Did, I was all "HELLS YES."  I think the first episode I heard was somewhere around the Fuckdolls one.

Speaking of, and I know this is not the first time I've asked this, but WHY HAVE YOU PEOPLE NOT GOTTEN THE CAPTAIN TO READ SOMETHING? >:(

This makes it sound like you had hideous assumptions/misconceptions about it and I'm curious as to what they were if that's the case.

Not sure, but probably through Bo. My first was The Devil Went Down To Tumblr.

Profanity's part of the old TF2 Cabal, he had his shot. He's probably busy anyway, off somewhere being really cool.

I didn't have any specific idea, I just wasn't sure what it could be that I could ever possibly like.  I found out! =D

You mean he's somewhere not reading things -- or if he's reading things, it's real history texts and not Kent Hovind's doctoral dissertation.  That is not "being  really cool."

I found it through Zarla linking to an episode. I think it was the creepypasta one, but I'm not entirely sure (it's been a while and my memory is really awful).

I like internet horror stories, so I stuck around after (it's why I follow the grognards.txt and gamers.txt threads on SA (yes, they're back and there are now rules in place to hopefully prevent them from getting gassed. Again. Because goons.)).

Still I wouldn't be opposed at all to him guest reading. Dude is a goddamned cartoon character and I love him to death.

Cap'n has the ability to summon a truly amazing level of enthusiasm for just about anything.  He would be a delight.

Someone posted about it either on poe or poe-news, and I was like, "Hey, yeah, it's like all the awesome stuff that people do during TF2 matches without me fucking over my wrists while trying and failing to join in on the shenanigans."

I think I followed a link from Icarus at some point, I cant really remember.

Also I think I met the captain on TF2 once upon a time. I recall discussing the Mughal empire.

I'm relatively late to the party, only joining in the fun during It's Only Supernatural. I had a debilitating addicting on the spot.

It wasn't through anything too exciting, no SA thread (only getting an account after I found The FPlus), I've never been to PoE during its heyday, or at all for that matter. My friend linked it to me. I'm a late internet bloomer what can I say, I had only ever concerned myself with anime, music and terrible fanfiction.
