We will be moving to a new Internet Relay Chat (IRC) server for the live recording chat room. The new server was set up to support not only the podcast, but game divisions of AIE which need some open-access chat capability.
The new channel can be accessed as #podcast on irc.aie-guild.org on port 6667 or on port 6697 for SSL/TLS encrypted sessions (which we recommend). You can also use our secure web client.
If you are new to IRC, there are tutorials available.
