Hello BZPower members, this is Mesonak, here to bring you...
That's right everyone, TTV has returned! A quick forewarning; if you decide to listen to our episodes, don't get turned off by the first couple. The quality of our podcast has improved drastically over time. Enjoy!
What is The Three Virtues? It's an on-going podcast, by members, for members. It's the successor to iBZP, the original Independent BIONICLE Zone Podcast, created by now-second-in-command Varderan. iBZP was originally created by Varderan as a means of providing a form of entertainment for us and the fanbase at large that not only featured discussion on ongoing events surrounding BIONICLE, but also BZPower and the current events in the community. After BIONICLE's unfortunate end, discussion of its successor, Hero Factory, was also added to our plate of topics.
iBZP thrived for a while, but never really reached its potential popularity wise. Due to various issues, Varderan eventually resigned from his position as Main Host, handing the job over to me. I decided to carry out a plan Var was going to go through with regardless; rebrand the podcast under a different name, The Three Virtues, and revamp the content, hosts, and overall quality of the podcast.
That plan has paid off in the long run; before BZPower's downtime, TTV was thriving. When BZPower went down for six months, production of the weekly episodes (as well as the mid-week BioTalk) reached an understandable standstill. Now that BZP is back, we hope to continue with our regularly scheduled podcast and bring you the same quality of entertainment that we used to deliver. We hope you'll join us for the ride.

Hot Topics: The cast cycles through the list of hot topics, picking out three topics to discuss.
What the Heck with THEDUDEOFDUDEZ: Hosted by Mesonak, I pick out something odd in the world of BIONICLE, BZPower, or Hero Factory, and rant about it for a while. Appearance of this segment varies depending on the material.
Comic Maker Spotlight: Hosted by Eljay, this segment involves Eljay offering constructive criticism to a comic maker, who is chosen at random.

Conclusion: The cast finishes with some witty banter, and the ending music plays.
You've got mail: Listen up, people. You can send stuff in to us. Just PM me a comment, a question, an opinion, a statement, or whatever you want. We'll discuss it on an episode. This is probably the easiest way to get mentioned in TTV.
BioTalk: Hosted by Eljay, we take a look at various things pertaining to BIONICLE, such as the OGD and/or topics in GD/Storyline and Theories.

We've had many more guests and part time hosts ever since our podcast began, but in the interest of space, I won't list them.
Comments and criticism are, obviously, welcome and appreciated, be it constructive or not. Unlike some we appreciate any comments on our work and will listen to the opinions that our fanbase gives us. Don't forget that, please.
Makuta Fest is a yearly collaboration between the BS01 Podcast and The Three Virtues. The scheduled date for the next MakutaFest event is August 1, 2012; The first one, held on August 1, 2010 was a grand success, and the second, held on August 1, 2011, was an even greater experience.
On October 17th, 2010, TTV interviewed Leigh Gallagher, the BIONICLE comic artist for 2008. Was a very enjoyable experience; he's a great guy.
