Ben Duncan grew up religious, but somehow his parents let him watch Star Trek, which is about a secular progressive utopia. I don’t understand it, but he watched it and he loved it, so now we talked about it.
Everyone’s Got a Thing is back! I sat down with the very funny Jason Stapls to talk about Rap/Hip-Hop, which is a genre of music that I like but know very little about. Jason brought along a playlist of songs covering his history with rap, which you can find below. I’m very excited to be back after such a long hiatus, and we’ve got great guests lined up to talk about all sorts of interesting stuff!

In our last episode, the team headed over to the Legislative Plaza Hotel, did some research at the library, visited an old, dying detective and are on the verge of maybe getting their defender killed by ghosts. We ended the last episode with Chuck making his saving throw to see if plummets 120 feet to his death. Let’s hope he rolls well!
Quick Warning: The intro to this one is extra long, because I took a few minutes to talk about “Gamergate” and my thoughts on the dickheads that are promulgating it. I also talk quickly about a book, Chicks Dig Gaming: A Celebration of Gaming by the Women Who Love It, which happens to coincidentally deal with the issues women often face when getting involved with games and gaming. You can read my review of it here. If you want to skip it all, you can head to about the 7:36 mark.
In the last episode, we met our new characters, and they set off their first adventure to cleanse the Legislative Plaza Hotel of its restless spirits. We pick up with our heroes headed to the home of one Abraham Alinsky, the lead detective on a case involving the hotel. After talking to Alinsky, we head back to the hotel, where the brave adventurers choose, perhaps unwisely, to make an end run around everything else and head for the biggest baddy. We’ll see how that all works out.
2 Guys, a Girl, and a Gobin is back! Episode 1 introduces our new characters, our new setting, and a whole new chance for us all to act stupid! We pick up with the adventures of Chuck Law, Ivana Diq-Tiqle, Toots, and Splyg as they take their first steps as a newly minted team for CPC, Chicago Paranormal Control. Roll for Initiative!
In this week’s episode, we sat down with Aaron’s lady friend, Theresa Slabosz, to talk about all things Disney. Theresa LOVES Disney stuff, and spent 6 months as an intern at the Florida parks. We talk about movies, the parks, the TV shows, and yes, a certain frozen head.
