(Fan created content. Distinct from hoaxes and parodies)
the JoshMeister originally started publishing his LOST insights privately for coworkers, family, and friends, but due to the popularity of these articles, he began making them available on a public blog. Inspired by The Official LOST Podcast and The Lost Podcast with Jay and Jack, Josh began reading his own blog posts aloud and producing an audio podcast version of the blog.
With the advent of TalkShoe, the JoshMeister's podcast became the first live show recorded immediately after LOST airs in the Pacific time zone (although fans from the Eastern time zone and elsewhere would frequently stay up late to join the discussion). Most recent episodes of the podcast are recordings of these live shows.
Extensive notes from each episode of the podcast are available on the JoshMeister's LOST Blog.
In addition to his podcasts, the JoshMeister blogs about theories and other things he's noticed, as well as selling his own t-shirt designs. The site offers blog and podcast subscription options.
the JoshMeister has participated in many collaborations with other podcasts and fan sites, including:
- Jay and Jack's 2009 and 2010 fundraiser podcasts for Autism Speaks
- DarkUFO's Find 815 wrap-up podcast in February 2008, hosted by the JoshMeister
- Big-O's first live episode of Cranky Fanatic in December 2006
- The LOST FaithCast in February 2007 (a discussion of religious themes in LOST)
- The LOST TheoryCast in December 2006 (a discussion of current LOST theories at the time)
Several podcasters have been regular guests on the JoshMeister's podcast, including Congested from Audibly Lost and DarkUFO, Josh ("Spivvy") from The Lost Flashbacks, Matt and Steve from The Smoke Hatch, and more.
the JoshMeister has been interviewed for various media publications including Podcast User Magazine Issue 17 (PDF link), Audibly Lost (a documentary about LOST podcasters), and podcasts including No Payne, No Glory and RoneyZone Radio.
- the JoshMeister coined the name "Ms. Dreadlocks" for one of The Others, inspired by the GSPN Weekly Lost Podcast's identification of "Mr. Squinty," a tail section survivor who later reappeared as an Other.
