Episode 370 - Fame & Reputation in Games

We discover the ephemeral nature of reputation and reputation management when we discuss the vagaries of fame in games. No one ends up more famous, which just makes the whole thing pointless.

Episode 349 - Explorations in New Media

That title sounds like a class you’d take to get your one required Humanities course out of the way. So, let’s just pretend it’s that.

Episode 344 - Overused Sci-Fi Tropes

We argue about sci-fi tropes, which some people don’t like and other people think are the greatest things. It is very confusing. And pedantic.

Episode 343 - Directors

Which directors do we want to see expand their horizons into superhero/fantasy/sci-fi? Which directors do we want to never touch those particular genres again? This one gets arty or, at least, as arty as one can be while discussing dude wearing tights.

Episode 331 - Star Wars Star Wars Star Wars

It was a made-up internet holiday when we recorded this, so we thought it appropriate to talk about Star Wars. The Expanded Universe is disappearing, so we dance around its ashes. But mostly we hate on Kevin J. Anderson.

Episode 326 - Ars Architectura

We’ve got a brand new format for THACO and a topic about really old stuff. We discuss how architecture impacts our enjoyment of media as well as some other stuff. But the real excitement is that Dale is here. Remember him?

Episode 325 - Tome of Unasked Questions

That show title doesn’t make sense and neither does this episode. There are random questions, random answers, and random attacks by wild squirrels. It is definitely spring.

Episode 324 - The Complete Book of Grappling

Grappling in games has never really been fun. We wrestle this weighty topic with Shane, who performs his mighty Force Choke hold on us.

Episode 317 - Licensed Games

We discuss our favorite and least favorite licensed games. That somehow makes us super-angry defending the things we love and so the whole thing ends in tears.

Episode 300 - Dire Jeopardy

It’s episode 300. That’s a lot of episodes. That’s like six years worth of podcasts. Why would we do that? What are we thinking? We celebrate the only way we know how: getting angry at each other.
