Released Wednesday, 13th November 2019
Good episode? Give it some love!
Welcome to Episode 12 (yes, we went back to the old way of naming - we don't need no stinkin' seasons!) of the Gene Pool Variety Hour! We appreciate you jumping in with us!

In this episode, we get back to gaming. Sean is in his happy place after taking a month hiatus from gaming. Diving back into Borderlands 3, and delving into Destiny 2 after years of clean Destiny-free living. It's crack, and I have mixed feelings toward my friends/drug dealers who talked me back into it!

Next, we explore Blizzard's recent new game announcements - Overwatch 2 and Diablo 4! Needless to say, we're excited about both. Sean is particularly happy for the PvE focus on OW2. Finally, he and his old-gamer friends can play without being schooled by them young whippersnappers!

We end the night on our review of Antonio Bandera's 2014 Automata. What happens in a dystopian world where humans are on the decline, and robots were created to help humanity but start to rise up for themselves? Um, haven't we heard that storyline tons of times before? Yeah, well, we visit that trope again here. Join in to hear what we think of this thing. Let's just say we have seen this trope visited in other movies, and done much better too. Oh, and Sean goes off on plastic surgery during this segment as well. ;-)

And yes, several chickens were chased. No animals were harmed in this episode, however. 

Oh! And we have a new podcast logo design. Awesome work by Milton Camargo over at! See his page here, and if you use him for any work, tell him the Gene Pool sent ya!

As always, thanks for listening, and hit us up on twitter for your thoughts on the episode! You can find us all over the place. We know all the Twitters! Gene Pool Variety Hour on Twitter at @GPVarietyHour...





Until next time... Stay nerdy my friends!
