In this episode, DuDs and Jimbo discuss the changes to the Mob Vote during Minecraft Live 2022. Instead of voting on Twitter, Mojang will now allow you to vote on a special Bedrock server, the Minecraft launcher, or on Minecraft.net. The polls will open on October 14th, noon EDT, so you will have a full 24 hours to cast your vote before the event. Plus, We have three listener comments; the first is from FireFox54 asking which Minecraft mod would we like to see in the game. The second question is from JesseW about adding a new form of magic to the game besides enchanting and brewing. The third question is from Jronman about our predictions for Minecraft Live besides Minecraft 1.20. What will we see from Dungeons? Possibly Legends? Will we have any surprises? Also, in our main topic, DuDs and Jimbo share the mobs they would like to see added to Minecraft.
DuDs is the founder of the podcast, which came about during a live stream in early 2019. He has a background in architecture and likes to apply that to Minecraft by building in some interesting shapes and adding lots of detail, this can be seen in his Build series and Ripple Effect SMP videos on his YouTube channel. Recently he has also joined the Channel 64 Minecraft server. During the show, he always brings up interesting topics and outlooks on the game as well as ideas to improve the blocks, mobs, structures, items, and biomes.
Jimbo joined the show at the start of 2020 after a successful guest appearance towards the end of 2019. Every week he brings a mix of humour, personality and ideas to the show along with his all-important note. Before joining The Ripple Effect for Season 2 he was a member of the Kamicraft server with DuDs and DiiKoj, where he also made content. This season he’s embarking on a mega-base, which you can follow on his YouTube channel. Recently he has also joined the Channel 64 Minecraft server.
Carl has been playing Minecraft since 2015 and has been making content ever since, initially with a few short single-player series before joining Lake Laogai in 2017. More recently, he helped start The Ripple Effect SMP where he also makes content for his YouTube channel and streams on Twitch. When it comes to the podcast, he is responsible for editing, posting and marketing each episode, in addition to booking guests, running our Mending Minecraft vote, the Discord server, and our Patreon.
DiiKoj likes to combine two of his passions in life – Minecraft and Music. He has produced a range of amazing music for the podcast including the intro, outro, and interludes. He is a very talented musician both in and outside of the game and has over 16,000 views on his short note block cover of Lena Raine’s “Pigstep” music disc on his YouTube channel, where he also produces relaxed content from both his single-player world and The Ripple Effect SMP for his over 8,000 subscribers.

It’s nice to listen to
I really like to listen to this podcast. Sometimes when I’m bored, I just listen to this. I really like Block of the Week and the intro music. The intro music is short, not in your face, and recognizable. Keep up the good work!
