Episode 49:The Brutalism Respecters Have Logged On
Howdy! Velius, Jarv and Morgan are on the mic this week. We had an episode planned with topics and stuff, but then Jarv checked in about reading Marx's Capital Illustrated and we tossed all our plans out. What followed was a winding journey covering capital, commodification, cryptocurrency, frustration with The Brands™ and Pride events and our shared love of brutalist architecture. We are all trapped in a vicious cycle where we are now all creators, consumers and our time has been commodified, but we still have each other.

Episode 47: Tim is Stanced Up
Howdy y'all. It's finally time for the Home Improvement themed episode.

CW: This episode has discussions of transphobia and suicide. Nick, Jarv and Morgan are on the mics for this round. It's also the second annual Nick birthday buddy bash!

Morgan had one beer before recording and talks about the wave of anti-trans legislation targeting children all over the country and her frustration with people on the fence.

Episode 45: Ghazghkull Mag Uruk Thraka
Howdy ya'll. Jarv, Toops and Morgan and on the mics for this one. Jarv has been playing the Street Fighter board game and it's pretty good! Morgan has been trying to get vaccinated and isn't sure if she's ready to trust It Takes Two after a fateful night of playing A Way Out. Toops has been getting hatemail in Skullgirls and has some insights into good and bad complexity in fighting games. Sorry for some roughness with Morgan's audio on this recording. Podcasting is a blowup and she feels very bad.

Episode 44: Horse'n Around
*SPOILER WARNING FOR UMA MUSUME* Howdy! It's an episode I've been chomping at the bit to get out the door. Not to put the cart before the horse, Jarv, Nick, Morgan and TKShadow got together to talk about what has been going on in their respective worlds. Morgan accidently spoils Nick on the Uma Musume anime. Nick has been playing Xenoblade Chronicles and is trapped in Reyn Time. The meat of the discussion focuses on Monster Hunter: Rise. Specifically, we have two veterans of the series, a new player and someone who has tried and failed to get into the series on the mics. Is this a good game for entering the series? We've also got thoughts about what makes a good onboarding experience in information dense games. Remember: Eclipse first, the rest nowhere.
