The Mega-Beast Death-Match [MBDM] (sometimes called the Super-Animal Death-Match) is an interactive, voter-driven competition pitting scientifically altered bestial battlers against one another in pretend fights to the death. It is presently entering its fifth "season" (AKA distinct year of unique beasts and associated podcasts). It is hosted by Norm Sherman (of the Drabblecast). Art and design by Bo Kaier.

Weird, Rambling Discussions of Animal Fights
This one skews psycho. Norm Sherman and the folks from the Drabblecast talk out battles between imaginary 'Mega-Beasts,' in this, the audio portion of a multi-pronged interactive campaign. Online voting replaces button mashing, or dice rolling.
I'll take Skullverine for the win...
The 60's had Woodstock. The 70's through the 90's didn't have much of anything. Then, in the late dawn of the new millennium, an event takes place that almost makes me forget it's Shark Week (thanks Yahoo's "today's top searches"!). It's the Super Animal Deathmatch Competition / Mega-Beast Death-Match 2008, a happening so important that it demands two names, presumably in case one is decimated in the ensuing melee. By voting, you essentially become God, deciding which of these magnificent beasts die, and which live on to mutate and fight another day. Like God, you are able vote once a day and sound off in the message boards. But even God needs advice sometimes, which is where this podcast comes in. Few podcasts offer as in-depth coverage of the S.A.D.C/M-B.D-M'08 as this one... I'm guessing it's in the top 5. The up-to-the-minute combatant analysis will hook you in and the dulcet tones of Bo Kaier's beast descriptions will keep you coming back.
Awesomeness filled awesome!
