The one with CrispyTaytortot and Captain Flint

In honour of our new series, Flight Assist Recap, we thought it might be a nice idea to sit down with two guests that we first had on the show nearly two years ago and find out what's changed in the last 24 months! Also any excuse to get the four of us together is a blast. Join us while we chat to two of our favourite humans, CrispyTaytortot and Captain Flint.

The one with CMDR ACowForAllSeasons

This time on Flight Assist, we're delving into the mind of the ganker, specifically ACowForAllSeasons, and actually learning a whole heap of information that we were not aware of before. Can he convince psykit and Mal to join him on a friendly ganking session? Find out in this episode.

The one with CMDR PhoenixBlue0

This episode, CMDRs Mal and Psykit chat with community mainstay and beloved CMDR PhoenixBlue0.

The one with CMDR Chig

After a fair few scheduling conflicts, we've finally had the chance to sit down and talk with one of a handful of Commanders who have managed to achieve Elite rank in every category - even CQC! Join us as we ask CMDR Chig some of the most important questions, like "How?"

The one with MD Mallardi and Motherducker VonQuack

If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck. However in this case it's actually a couple of married CMDRs! MD Mallardi and Motherducker Von Quack talk all things Elite, the difference in their playstyles, and exactly how well they work together to achieve their goals in the galaxy! CMDRs MD Mallardi and Motherducker Von Quack Don't really have that much of a social media presence, but you can find them on both the Soteria Accord and Flight...


The one with CMDR Eid LeWeise

This time, in Psykit's ongoing quest to get to know the Lave Radio folks in more detail, Mal and her sat down to have a lurgy filled nostalgia trip with none other than CMDR Eid LeWeise!

The one with CMDR Newell Turner

You might know him as Newell Turner, you may recognise him as TheDourScotsman if you watch Elite on twitch, and if you listen to Lave Radio you just might recognise him as the Tech Guru Chris Mk IV. Come find out a little bit more about one of the men behind the virtual desk in the Orange Sidewinder and his Elite Dangerous story.

The one with CMDR ToCoSo

You have definitely heard his content. Elite Dangerous Community Legend and just all round wonderful human, CMDR ToCoSo is our guest this episode! Mal and Psykit found out more about the man behind the music used by so many creators across the galaxy in a conversation that could have lasted twice as long as it did. Not to mention strange interference from a "Radio7" that we tried to edit out, but it just sounded so good we decided to keep it in! CMDR ToCoSo Links Twitter:...


The one with CMDR Eralm_237

This time we have been joined by the fantastic Eralm_237, who rounds off a quartet of wonderfully diverse women with vastly different Elite experiences. Eralm's story is certainly unique and full of the nerdy goodness that we've become accustomed to in this podcast.

The one with CMDR Kaytianna

We have been asking her for ages, and she finally said yes! This episode, we sit down for a chat with the absolute GOAT that is CMDR Kaytianna and learn all about her Elite Dangerous story. Psykit doesn't really play favorites, but this is definitely a favourite of hers. Can't think of why. Also, Katie's amazing - did we mention she's amazing?

The one with Selene Stardragon

This episode, we had the chance to talk with The Admiral herself, Selene Stardragon. This commander has one of the coolest communities and is definitely worth getting to know. One need only look at her immersive ship-naming convention, her Vtuber avatar's custom uniform, or a single stream to realize there's something special and magical about her. Oh, and she's a fantastic pilot - after all, you GOTTA be a great pilot if you're The Admiral. Selene Stardragon Links Twitch:...


The one with CMDR KayteeKhaos

Everyone should have a KayteeKhaos in their life. A wonderful human being providing a wholly unique angle on the Elite Dangerous and streaming sphere, an advocate for equality, and the easiest yes to a stream team application that FAP HQ have ever received. Mal and Psykit finally get a chance to sit with her for about an hour and discuss her Elite story, and also entirely lose Psykit with references to science fiction she's never heard of.

The one with CMDR Garud

If you play Elite Dangerous, chances are you use a tool or two. And if you're into BGS, you've probably used EliteBGS.app (and if not, you should). Our guest this week is the CMDR behind EliteBGS, the BGS Bot for Discord, and a handful of other tools. In addition to being an inventive and prolific programmer, he's also a great CMDR and human. We sit down to talk with the Overlord of Elite Apps for a quick chat about his experiences in the cockpit and what it's like to not only use some of...


The one with CMDR Arkidogg

We love getting to talk to new people on Flight Assist. CMDR Arkidogg is the kind of person who Mal and Psykit thought they'd never get to speak to, and are all the better off for having this conversation. A little newer to Elite and with an entirely different play schedule to a lot of folks, he manages to use his playtime efficiently and makes it work. Come and find out how in this week's episode!

The one with Charlie Hall (50th Episode)

We've reached a milestone here on Flight Assist - this week marks our 50th episode! Thank you to each and every listener and to our patrons for making this podcast possible. We wanted to do something special to mark the occasion, and boy - did we ever come up with something for you. This week, we're talking with none other than Charlie Hall at Polygon Magazine! We're certain you know his work; he's written many articles on Elite: Dangerous since its launch, and he's not just a reporter -...


The one with Brother Sabathius

Oh boy, buckle up folks, this one's a lengthy episode! We had the absolute pleasure to sit down and have a chat with Brother Sabathius about his Elite Dangerous story, and his amazing escapades in Xeno combat. If you're a fan of Thargoid hunting, be prepared to take notes! If you don't think Thargoid hunting is your thing, Brother Sabathius might just pique your interest!

The one with CMDR Phantom Cruze

If you have never spoken to either Mal or Psykit before but would like to be on the podcast, please let us know - it's no secret that they're some of our favorite interviews! CMDR Phantom Cruze did, and we've now had the absolute pleasure of getting to know a new story from a different perspective.

The one with CMDR Exorcist

You've undoubtedly seen some of his amazing Elite Dangerous photography and videography over the last few years, but barely heard his voice or know much about him. This week Mal and Psykit sit down with the wonderful CMDR Exorcist to find out more about the man behind the incredible visages and find out his Elite story.

The one with CMDR Mack Winston

You may know this week's guest from Lave Radio. Or Sagittarius Eye. Or East India Company. Or any combination of these. It's CMDR Mack Winston! The best part about this CMDR? He's got a story or anecdote about anything and everything Elite-related.
