  • Episode 213 – Butthurt Kerfluffle

    IIFeaturedPresenters.logoThis week, we are joined by returning guest Andrew Hackard – the Munchkin Czar!  We take a look at a “controversy” in the gaming world caused by the inclusion of 13 women on a 25 person slate of gaming professionals to be featured on the Industry Insider program at Gencon this year. Apparently, some gamers are butthurt that they managed to find so many qualified women to sit the panels and feel some men were “unfairly” excluded.  Hack, who is an industry professional, gives us the rundown on this really dumb argument and we talk about the inroads women are making into gaming and the ways gaming has been working to be more inclusionary.

    Note: This episode was recorded remotely and that means the sound can be sketchy at times and there can be some weird delays.

  • Episode 50 – National Park Boners

    DSC00656We have a week filled with geeky boners of all kinds.  Not your usual geeky topics, mind you.  Rather, we talk about things like marathons and nuclear missle launch facilities.  Because when you talk about what makes you geek out, it isn’t always comics or movies or TV.  Sometimes it’s the stuff that just makes our geeky little hearts beat faster.  We also talk about video games so we manage to bring it back to a core geek topic.  We also read five answers by Stacy from California!

    Also, we have a brief blurb for Camp Quest Minnesota at the end of the episode.  Over the holidays last year, we raised enough money to support one scholarship for a child who otherwise couldn’t afford to go.  If you have kids in the right age range, now is the time to sign them up!
