Welcome to Episode 19!  In this episode:   In our Roll for Credits segment, we dive into the 2016 South Korean zombie flick, Train to Busan! Since when do zombie flicks hit you in all the feels?! Zombie ant armies, Korean Stallones, and the Rich Asshole! Our Geek Question of the Day: What is the first thing you need procure to help you survive a zombie apocalypse? Connor is decidedly more compassionate for others than I am in this segment. I just need to run faster than you do. Finally, we continue our dungeon crawl campaign in the RPG card game, Expedition! See how far Clod and Seamus make it? How many more levels? Do we survive? Do we thrive? Or do we die?! Stey tuned to find out!   And as always, several chickens were chased, though none were harmed in this episode.    Thanks for listening, and hit us up on twitter for your thoughts on the episode! You can find us all over the place.

Welcome to Episode 18! The one where I need more coffee... In this episode:   Our Geek Question of the Day: What is your favorite epic battle from fiction? Superheroes and Orcs and Dwarves, oh my! In our Roll for Credits segment, we dive into 2000's Where the Money Is, starring Paul Newman, Linda Fiorentino, and Dermot Mulrooney.  What happens when a convict suffering the effects of a stroke is transferred to a civilian nursing home and cared for by a nurse who has always yearned for excitement in her life? How does her well-meaning but unexciting husband handle it all? Hop in to so. Interestingly, this was the last movie Paul Newman filmed as lead actor. Was great until the end! Finally, we dive into a new game that we have had for a while but never really played. Expedition is a card-and-mobile-app based RPG in the vein of D&D, where the mobile app basically fills the role as DM. Think D&D-lite, but it was fun nonetheless. Of course it didn't run smoothly, but we'll clean it up when we finish the campaign in the next episode!   And as always, several chickens were chased, though none were harmed in this episode.    Thanks for listening, and hit us up on twitter for your thoughts on the episode! You can find us all over the place.

Welcome to Episode 17! The one where we're still trying to get our groove back...   In this episode:   Our Geek Question of the Day: Basically it is an extension of how we start every episode... What video games are you playing through currently? As usual, I deep dive into one or two games at a time - for me currently, it is Destiny 2 on the Xbox and the Master Chief Collection on mobile via Project xCloud. For Connor, as usual, it is all over the place! Pokemon, Dragon Question, Assassins Creed, Xbox, Switch, mobile... you name it! In our Roll for Credits segment, we dive into the 2017 Zombie Christmas Musical, Anna and the Apocalypse. Yes, that is what I said. Zombie. Christmas. Musical. Think High School Musical meets Walking Dead. With song and dance. Don't try to figure it out. Just listen. Then watch. Finally, we dive back into one of our favorite games, Superfight! Who would win in a fight between the Grim Reaper with Goblin bombs and a 10-story tall squid witch? Listen in to find out! Also, Burning Man vs. Dexter. Go figure.   Thanks for the patience as we're trying to get back in the swing of things!    And as always, several chickens were chased, though none were harmed in this episode.    Thanks for listening, and hit us up on twitter for your thoughts on the episode! You can find us all over the place.

We're BAAAAACK!   Welcome to Episode 16! Where the heck have we been?! Read on...   In this episode:   Connor starts school! Connor gets behind! Connor has to remember what school effort is like! And that is why we have been absent. Decided to hold off on the podcast until he could get his work and school schedule and tasks streamlined. Didn't need a podcast to get in the way. But sailing waters are smoother, so here we are! Our Geek Question of the Day for this episode is a Connor Special: Is money a super power? Connor falls on the 'yes' side of the aisle, but Sean - who is clearly right in this debate - emphatically explains why 'no' is the correct answer! Where do you fall on this? What say you? Finally, for our Roll for Credits segment, we dive into the 2015 movie, Thirst. (What's with all the one-word movie titles lately?) Imagine if the movie Predator, or Alien, was mashed up with Shia Labouf's 2003 movie, Holes. Now, imagine if the Alien, a velociraptor, and the T-800 got it on and had a baby! There's your monster, folks! Great cinematography, so-so acting, and a wholly forgettable movie. Feel free to listen in and hear why...   Pretty short episode this week as we try to get out podcasting sea legs back under us....   And as always, several chickens were chased, though none were harmed in this episode.    Thanks for listening, and hit us up on twitter for your thoughts on the episode! You can find us all over the place.
