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 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 318 - Marvel’s Secret War

Full disclosure: We recorded this before the Sony/Marvel deal involving Spiderman. So we have no idea what we’re talking about. Which is usually true, but is particularly relevant in this particular episode. It really makes you reflect on mortality, ya know?

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 313 - Things We’re Looking Forward To in 2015

As the year changes, we list all the awesome things we’re looking forward to seeing in 2015. Every one of them seems to spawn a sidebar which we never close, creating a mess of nested structures that devour us. So it’s gonna be a great year.

Episode 307 - Reverse Casting

We decide that, since everyone is in comic book movies, we should figure out who certain actors should be cast as. Mostly this consists of looking at Google Images.

Episode 306 - Comic Cinematic Universes

DC is trying to get their own movie juggernaut going, but the real question is: Do we want their cinematic universe? And why is DC seemingly so much better at TV than Marvel? All these questions and far, far nerdier ones as well.

Episode 302 - System vs. Setting

What settings sound awesome but are let down by a poor ruleset? Or is the ruleset better than the setting? We meld the two sides of our brains together to appreciate everything gaming has to offer.
