Next week, the Major Spoilers Podcast hits issue #600 – a milestone issue to many. But what is so important about a number with two or more zeroes at the end? Is it because we think something important has happened? Is it tied to a date or the performance of a show? Perhaps it is simply bragging rights.* There are hundreds of podcasts that have passed the 600 episode mark, mostly because they have a daily or multiple times per week release schedule, so hitting 600 doesn’t seem like that big of a deal.

The MS-QOTD lands on your lap today asking: Should we celebrate episode 600 of a podcast or not?

* For those wondering, to date the Major Spoilers Podcast Network has produced and released 1,425 episodes.

  1. I think even hundreds are a place at least a small celebration. It might not feel that important to you, but I sure appreciate all you guys are doing. Give yourselves a little pat in the back, its well earned!

  2. Major Spoilers LLC should celebrate the 600th Major Spoilers Podcast. In this era of here today…gone in 5 minutes, one should acknowledge the time spent on their life and/or work.

    Most podcast ARE time capsules, so even though I wasn’t listening 5 or 6 years ago, I have been able to go back in ‘time’ and listen to some classic discussion on WE3, Authority, Gotham Central, American Vampire…just to name a few.

    I have been witness to the birth of Zach on Film, Dueling Review and Top Five.

    I have been introduced to Jason Inman, Ashley Victoria Robinson and Wayne Hall to name a few.

    Almost 1,500 podcasts in total?!?!?! and you had to time to get married, go to soccer practice and work at Gatekeepers Hobbies?

    Looking forward to the next 1,500 podcast

  3. Why not mix it up a little? Instead of celebrating episode 600, celebrate episode 604 or 612 or some other not-so-special number, and give it an incredibly unnecessary long title like “The Super Spectacular Major Spoilers Podcast 612th Episode Pre-Taped Live Episode Extravaganza Deluxe Special Edition of Super Special Awesomeness Extreme”.

  4. Absolutely. The 600th episode isnt jsut about Major Spoilers, it’s also about each and everyone of us who come here to post all the time, read the articles, use the Amazon link, tweet, and have our entire day ruined by finally (FINALLY) catching up to Critical Hit. A 600th anniversary celebrates us, you, and how much you guys mean to us!

  5. Celebrate! Good times come on! Major Spoilers has been a big part of my life for over 7 years, and you guys should celebrate for all the hard work you do.

  6. Yes, definitely celebrate #600 – it IS a grand achievement! Just about every other podcast I’ve subscribe to has gone +1+$ up after a hundred or so episodes (if they even made it that far), but you guys are still going strong.
    Congratulations! And Thanks for all the Fish!
