Musically Challenged - Episode 74 - Patriotic Songs

June 28, 2018 @ 10:22 am

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

June 27, 2018 @ 11:55 pm

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

June 21, 2018 @ 4:14 am

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

June 15, 2018 @ 12:28 pm

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.

June 15, 2018 @ 6:00 am

I'm back with a fun filled podcast. I sit down almost a year to the day with Jason Dean. He has spent the last year plus travelling the country, doing what he wants to do, when he wants to do it...except for work, that he still needs to do to. We talk places, food and beer and we find out what he's been doing the past year.

Like the episode? Check Jason out here. http://midwesternboy.com/

Musically Challenged - Episode 71 - Weird Al Originals

June 7, 2018 @ 1:10 am

Here you are, one episode into the new format and they throw you a curve ball by having a special guest on the show. That's right the boys are joined by the one and only Scott Ahern.  The last time Scott joined the boys they talked about Weird Al Yankovich and some things never change. It's been about 30 or so episodes since they last talked about Al, so they are doing it again. Faced with the imeding thought of the Weird Al concert all 3 guys are going to in a few days they decided to take a secial look at Weird Al and more precisely his songs that are not parody. So buckle up and see if you are musically challenged too.

With the end of the school year upon us or behind us already, Scott and chad thought they would take a look at year round school. What are the pros and cons of it?

The guys enlisted Chad's two daughters, Emma (Just finished her freshman year of college) and Molly (Junior year of high school almost over) and see what they had to say. Come on in and listen to something that is interesting, provacative and maybe, just mabe a little bit of fun. so, do you WANT TO HEAR SOMETHING INTERESTING?
