202 – Awkward Banter
On this absolutely not late because there are no rules episode of A Trouble with Words we talk about one of the best shows ever made; Taskmaster. Seriously this will be your new favorite thing on television if you give it a chance. It has a hint of mystery, loads of excitement and many famous British comedy personalities competing for nonsensical prizes. It makes me laugh like nothing ever has and I hope listening to this inspires you to watch free past seasons on the Official Taskmaster YouTube Channel. Did I mention they are free? Also I’m sorry to say this but no sketches again as we find our footing. Instead we have two amazing guests that barely get a word in over my constant talking. Thanks to Lindsey and Julia for dropping by and I promise to work on not hogging the mic so much in the future. In fact if anyone has any suggestions on what we could do to improve in general, or things you would like to see us tackle please leave a comment or shoot us an email. Getting feedback matters more than you could know and I look forward to hearing any that you might have. Actually please send it to us in a red wax sealed white envelope typed out on a single sheet of paper. Your time starts now! -Josh Hello, friends! Welcome to Episode Two of Season Two! We said we weren’t sticking to a release schedule, and somehow, against our best efforts, we’re nailing it! We’re like the Sand Sharks in that movie, Sand Sharks: You don’t have a *clue* when we’ll pop up next! I hope you’ll enjoy this episode! Is it technically perfect? No, not even close. In fact, it’s fine. But we had fun, and with people we care about so, what more could you ask for? -Justin http://atroublewithwords.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/ATWW_202.mp3 Subscribe to us on iTunes, Spotify or Stitcher and never miss an episode.

201 – best of 2020
Happy Season 2 everyone! They said this last year would never end . . . but they didn’t count on us missing you all so much. Missing each other. Desperately wanting to talk about nonsense that doesn’t matter again. It was our duty to make this episode and close out the year officially. Frankly it was too big of a risk not doing it. There was just too much at stake, and despite all the loss and challenges we faced it was time to put on our podcast pants again. -Josh Holy Toledo, we’re back, mothereffers! Nobody asked for this! (Actually, like… some of you did? That’s wild. Thank you!) Feels good to jump back in with an A Trouble with Words *classic*, the annual Best Of episode. It’s like we were never really gone at all! We were though. For a long time. It’s weird that you don’t remember that. -Justin http://atroublewithwords.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/12/ATWW_201.mp3 Subscribe to us on iTunes, Spotify or Stitcher and never miss an episode.

154 – Bran Service
Things are a little tricky right now with life being what it is, so please bear with me as I fall helplessly through it for a bit. I promise to keep trying. Remember when I said there would be way more spoilers on this show? Well I wasn’t kidding. Let’s talk about the end of Game of Thrones already. -Josh My name is Justin and I didn’t do a post because everything is too hard. I’ll get you next time. -Justin http://atroublewithwords.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/ATWW_154.mp3 Subscribe to us on iTunes, Google Play or Stitcher and never miss an episode.

152 – A Mixed Bag
We decided to make a change regarding how we discuss various topics on the podcast. Mostly it’s becoming too difficult to have conversations without going into depth, and as a result it feels like we’re not really saying anything. So going forward we’re going to talk spoilers a lot more. Mostly every episode actually. We’ll warn you first every time though so don’t worry about getting blindsided. This episode is on Avengers Endgame and we talk about it with the assumption that you’ve seen it first. If you haven’t you should before listening to this obviously. Go do that now, we’ll wait. So how did we feel about this new Avengers as well-established fans of the franchise? I’ll give you a hint. It’s like someone took everything in the MCU, mixed it up in bag, and then poured it out into a new movie. Leaving the end product a lot like one of the characters that appears in it … bloated in the middle and less cool then expected. Give this episode a listen to find out what specific praise and complaints we had. Our answers might surprise you. Also this makes two times in a row that we were a day late getting an episode up and I’m sorry for that. Just bad timing really, but I promise it’s nothing to worry about. We’ll be back on track before you know it! As always thanks for listening and please share with your friends! -Josh Hello friends, It’s podcast time, so here’s a podcast. We held up our end, so you hold up yours: listen to it. This one went a little long, so we didn’t have time to record sketches – sorry about that, they’re my favorite part too. Next time! Anyway, hope you enjoy the show, and come back next time for more of whatever it is we’re doing here. -Justin http://atroublewithwords.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/ATWW_152.mp3 Subscribe to us on iTunes, Google Play or Stitcher and never miss an episode.

151 – PAX East 2019
I can’t believe it’s PAX time already! April 15th really sneaks up on you. Make sure you claim all of your dependents or else you won’t … get good returns? I don’t know, this joke got away from me. Please enjoy this video episode where we cover PAX East 2019 because we made it just for you! Also it’s pretty good if I do say so myself. Ok so I realize it’s actually the 16th and I’m a day late getting this up. Computers, am I right? Computers and headaches that is. One and the same? Anyway we’re rarely actually late posting, and it’s beyond frustrating when it happens. Please forgive us and know that it couldn’t be helped. Also check out the episode and learn about some really cool possibly unknown games that we discovered at PAX East 2019! Thanks for watching and listening! -Josh Hi, it’s me. Welcome to my half of the post. I’d like you to stop, and go back to Josh’s post. Read it again. He puts so much time and effort – care – into his posts. Mine are just, sloppy, hurried, rushing things. Just enough words to call it a post. Too few, and Josh will yell at me. Too many? Well, that’s never happened before. I ain’t got that kinda time. Well, let’s be honest, I’ve got time, it’s the motivation I’m lacking. No one reads this anyway, except for Amanda. I’m not even sure Josh reads it, Just copies and pastes it. But, I wrote it, so it can sit there, and look right on the page. That’s it job. Page balance. Oh, enjoy the episode! I haven’t seen it yet! -Justin WATCH : LISTEN : http://atroublewithwords.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/ATWW_151.mp3 Subscribe to us on iTunes, Google Play or Stitcher and never miss an episode.

150 – Blockbuster
In what will go down in history as the greatest April Fools Day prank ever pulled off, there was no episode posted yesterday. We were suppose to but we didn’t. Classic. Anyway this one is about the latest MCU offering Captain Marvel and all the stupid made up controversy surrounding it. I’m pretty tired from PAX East still so I’ll just say this. If you hated this movie just to hate it then you’re wrong and really need to reconsider. Give it a chance. It made a ton of money despite some people’s best efforts and overall was a great time. We address all of that and keep things completely spoiler free so don’t worry. See you next time for our annual PAX East video episode where we show off some more hidden gems in gaming. Stay fresh cheese bags! -Josh Hey, we didn’t post an episode yesterday because it was April Fool’s Day, and you would have been waiting for jokey-jokes the whole time – by waiting a day, you can now listen to this episode, safe and secure in the knowledge that there is *nothing* funny about what we’re doing here. That’s my promise to you! -Justin http://atroublewithwords.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/ATWW_150.mp3 Subscribe to us on iTunes, Google Play or Stitcher and never miss an episode.

149 – Just the Sketches Vol. 10
Everyone keeps begging for more sketch collection episodes! They love our mad flowing improv and crazy funny characters! It is in honor of that request that we made our lives too busy to put out a new episode. You’re welcome. -Josh This is a sketchisode. Well, really, this is a sketchisode post, which is the post that goes with the sketchisode. The sketchisode post is going *so* well right now. I hope it keeps going so well, all the way to the end of the sketchisode post, which is coming right up. It’s now. Good job. -Justin http://atroublewithwords.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/ATWW_149.mp3 Subscribe to us on iTunes, Google Play or Stitcher and never miss an episode.

148 – True Power
The Umbrella Academy is a show about people discovering their true power. More specifically it’s about multiple children that are born suddenly with mysterious and strange abilities and then adopted by an eccentric billionaire who trains them to be super heroes. It’s odd and funny and generally just a good time all around. We talk about it in this one and it’s a good listen if I do say so myself. You can discover your true power by downloading all of our episodes and stuff. Bam! Brought the theme around and closed the post perfectly! I’m so good at writing you guys. -Josh Hey there, friend! Welcome back! We got that fresh ‘tent you was looking for! That Ultra Fresh Content, you crave? We got it! We’re talking about The Umbrella Academy, and guess what? We’re doing it spoiler-free, so you can listen whether you’ve watched it or not! (Watch it though, it’s good!)

147 – There’s a Pill for That
Love is in the air and everyone is feeling a bit insane as a result. It’s just that time of year. Also for those not afflicted with the build up of oxytocin bonded closeness it can be a bit tougher right now than usual, maybe depressing even. That’s where science comes in. Well science fiction technically. In this episode we discuss the new Netflix original show about identity and human connection called Maniac. It’s a trippy crazy story that is not afraid to explore some pretty serious stuff in a creative and often fun way. Check out this spoiler free coverage and see if it sounds right for you. Ok here’s just one spoiler … it’s great! Thanks for listening! -Josh Hello folks! Against all odds, we’ve done it again: Recorded, edited, and produced another humdinger of an episode for your listening pleasure! I don’t have anything else to say, and I’ve gotta get the episode to Josh so we can technically be on time, so that’s it for me! See you next time! -Justin http://atroublewithwords.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/ATWW_147.mp3 Subscribe to us on iTunes, Google Play or Stitcher and never miss an episode.

146 – Deja Vu
We’ve been here before. An episode is due. A deadline looms. We know we need to deliver, but life is getting in the way. Is it possible we’ll find a solution in time? Is there some way to cheat the system? Would we even do that? Impossible to say. Anyway, unrelated to all that we decided to release this one day later so it lines up with the holiday movie it’s based on. The movie we always planned to talk about on this episode from the very beginning. Let’s discuss Groundhog Day! We’re not late. -Josh What can I tell you, we saw an opportunity to do an episode two days late and call it “On Time” and we took it. Why? Because we’re innovators, that’s why. Anyway, this ep’s all about *everyone’s* favorite holiday flick, Groundhog Day. It’s a real good episode, I think, so listen to it a couple dozen times.
