  1. Marvel movies

    I really liked the new spider man.
  2. Something True Preview: Something True Season 2 The opera singer who burned down a convent. A naked man who saved the life of Genghis Khan. An astronomer who ate bad beef. These are true stories, but they aren't about people who changed the world. You won't read about them on the Wikipedia page for "history", or hear them on a podcast about trains. These stories are of weird creeps and unlucky management consultants, whose lives and legacies crumbled underneath the indifferent march of time. Only July 16th, Something True returns, with these stories, and more, from the footnotes of history. Subscribe at somethingtrue.net. Listen on the Episode Page Listen on Soundcloud Listen in iTunes

  4. Anyone Remember?

    He has quoted that aloud in my presence before and I can’t remember if it was on air.
  5. Anyone Remember?

    This is an unlikely-to-be-answered deep cut, and may not even exist, but is there an episode in which Chris says “for years I’ve been perfecting my algorithms” in a cheesy German accent?
  6. Psychonauts 2

    Looks really nice.
  7. 10th Anniversary

    Ans I’m Nick Breckon.

  10. WIZARD JAM 7 // Welcome Thread

    The true Wizard Jam 7 logo has been revealed.
  11. Idle Thumbs 320: Building Bridges at PAX East 2018 All of our lives have been upended because of some pretty awesome news (read item one here, and item two here), and it has had the unfortunate effect of knocking our recording schedule totally out of whack. So for this month's Idle Thumbs we have something a little different! At PAX East 2018, Chris moderated a panel called "Building Bridges & Breaking Barriers" and we're privileged to share it with you! Here's the official description: This panel brings a diverse group of individuals together who are actively working – often times behind-the-scenes - in the game space to help bridge cultural gaps and create positive communities. Panelists will share personal stories on how they overcame cross-cultural challenges, not just in their own “backyard” but also across the world! We're not sure when a 100% regular schedule will resume but we'll keep you posted! In the mean time enjoy this episode and thanks for listening!

  12. Yes that’s true! It’s an important feature. The Minit segment got very rambly and repetitive and I cut a lot out including the part where we talk about pressing C to kill yourself. I tried to keep it in but it was in the middle of a conversation that is basically a slow paced duplicate of what’s there.
  13. Idle Thumbs 318: Live In The Cloud Now Everything keeps resetting, but still you progress. You got the sword, the watering can, but you died five times in the process. The teens burned down your pirate ship while you were away. Your audio equipment is degrading at an unsettling rate. Fortunately everything is safe, now that you live in the cloud. Now that you're live in the cloud. Note: We recorded this one with every host remote, and as a result it's a little lower key than usual, but we hope you enjoy it all the same. For a weird experience, watch the video version. Discussed: Minit, The Legend of Zelda, Hyper Light Drifter, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Sea of Thieves, Imbroglio, Cinco Paus, Jackbox Party Packs, You Don't Know Jack (2018) Listen on the Episode Page Listen on Soundcloud Listen in iTunes
