Musically Challenged - Episode 74 - Patriotic Songs

Take a second and listen to the sounds around you. Listen to the birds chirping, the bee upon the wing. Take this time to really feel everything around you. Now, close your eyes and think about where you were when some momentus occasion in our history happened. What is your "Where were you?" moment. This is America and this is the week in which we celebrate our independence day and what better way to do that then to play music that is patriotic to America in some way? So grab a handful of sparklers, a brat, a beer (if your of age) and relaxon that lawn chair and let's find out if you are musically challenged too!

Geekery in General 200: D&D Roundtable

On October 26, 2014 I posted the first episode of Geekery in General on DrivethruRPG. Here we are, 200 episodes later (more if you count the quickies and occassional mini-episodes). What better time is there than to discuss a game we've talked about many times on this show: Dungeons and Dragons!

To mark this momentous occassion Al talks with experienced co-host Chad Knight and special guest Alexis Smolensk from the Tao of D&D Blog (http://tao-dnd.blogspot.com/). We discuss many topics related to this legendary game from how how we got into it, the Satanic Panic, the Edition Wars, where the game has been and where we hope the game will go. So grab your dice, dust off that old copy of Keep on the Borderlands, and hunker down behind your DM screen as we discuss the world's most famous role playing game!

Musically Challenged - Episode 73 - “Metal” Songs

You might ask yourself, "Self, why is metal in quotations?" Well, that would be a good question to ask yourself. Perhaps the boys have an answer. Boys? "We do short script writing guy." Would you care to let us in on it? "Of course, it's because all the songs are about metal." Well, that does make sense, so it's an episode of heavy metal songs? "No, short script writing guy. Sheeze your dumb. It is more mental than that. All the songs this week have some form of metal in the title. So songs about gold, silver, iron and titanium will be found within." Oh, ok, well I guess that explains it. But, why did you have to call me dumb? "Lou?" Well? "That's easy, because your dumb."

Thanks guys...

Geekery in General 198: Zombies

Zombies are everywhere. They have appeared in countless movies, books, TV shows, and games. But why are these mindless masses so popular? Al and Chad attempt to answer that question as they take a look at the historical roots of zombies and how they have been portrayed in popular culture.
