Episode 83 – It’s Taco Time

 

With confirmation of Microsoft’s draconian (and confusing) DRM scheme for the Xbox One console arriving right before we recorded, this week’s E3 predictions/wishes podcast accidentally turned into us plotting our escape to PC gaming (and foolishly hoping Valve might announce the Steam Box before E3 begins).

Before all that, however, we talk about […]

Episode 77 – Air Biscuit

 

We celebrate the purchase of PAX Prime tickets with talk about Hannibal, Tattoo Nation, Fringe, and the latter seasons of The West Wing before digging into the Geek Week In Review: the unveiling of Black Sails (the first pirate TV show?), gamers demanding refunds of Bioshock Infinite to avoid in-game baptism and Nintendo’s […]

Episode 57 – The Adventures of So-and-so Solo

We’ve recovered from the one one-two punch of Thanksgiving and Black Friday just in time to record this week. We bid farewell to all the money we spent on videogames over the holiday weekend while chatting about Anne’s viewings of Skyfall and The Secret of Kells, plus two interesting articles she read about games […]

Episode 56 – That’s a big Twinkie.

We, along with the rest of the civilized world, are mourning the (probably temporary) death of the Hostess snack cake family this week – Bill found the last box of assorted Hostess donuts left in the Pacific Northwest right before we recorded, so please excuse our nibbling.

In more personal news, Anne talks about […]

Episode 44 – The Tenth Kingdom

 

Between Anne buying a house and Bill shipping out a hundred print orders, its a pretty low-key episode this week – you know we’re punchy when the first thing we talk about is the TV miniseries that helped kill the TV miniseries format, The 10th Kingdom. Despite our hectic personal lives, we somehow […]

Episode 43 – Word Burgers

It’s Siskel and Ebert week as Anne gives the lowdown about Snow White and the Huntsman and The Bourne Legacy, Bill geeks out about 13 Assassins and Jiro Dreams of Sushi, and both of us debate the merits of The Raid: Redemption.

We then spend a lot of time indulging in a George Miller […]

Episode 42 – Hot Dog Water

Between packing for a move and hitting the gym Anne’s been busy getting ripped this week, but not too busy to extoll the virtues of the Disney cartoon Motor City. Bill retaliates with plenty of licensed comic talk (Marceline and the Scream Queens, Star Trek vs. Doctor Who and Godzilla: Half-Century War) before we […]
