Regular listeners of the audio-only version of A.V. Talk have probably noticed its disappearance over the past few weeks. No, we're not dumping it for video; we're rebooting the whole thing. In early April, we're relaunching the Podcast Formerly Known As A.V. Talk under a new name—got any suggestions?—and an entirely new format. A regular host! Various segments! Recurring features! Comical skits! Wait, scratch that last one.

Here's a sneak preview of what's to come: We're resurrecting our popular old feature Ask The A.V. Club—unseen 'round these parts since the summer of '08—for the podcast and maybe on the site too. Leave questions on our Google Voice line at 314-AVC-LUB0 (they may be broadcast on the podcast), or e-mail them to

In the meantime, if you have suggestions for a new podcast name, let's hear them.
