Blue Yonder – Barely Legal – Episode 76

In this week’s show, A.Ron and Jim ponder some science, philosophy, pop culture and politics through the lens of SCIENCE!  First up, a research paper opens up the debate about spoilers we first had way back in episode 62, with a new study suggesting that reading pre-spoiled books is more enjoyable than reading them spoiler-free.  So take your spoiler tag, shine it up real nice, turn it sideways, and cram it up your candy ass!

Blue Yonder – GENCON Square Down – Episode 75

We are back after last week’s hiatus.  Honestly, I’m heartbroken we lost the Jim Jones Experiment.  It was an hour long mind fuck of yours truly by Jim Jones, and it was weird, it was uncomfortable, it was hilarious by the end, and it would have been legendary, and then Jim deleted it, with no backups.  Because, I dunno?  Mac people don’t make good backups.  I guess?

Blue Yonder – Five Inch Boom – Episode 74

GENCON, the “best four days in gaming”, is coming to our humble home town of Indianapolis next week.  We invited Michael “Madbrew” Brewer back on to give some tips for what to look for in this years convention, how to navigate the expo hall, potential new releases, and what you can safely avoid.  If you missed last year’s GenCon preview with Michael, you might want to give it a listen, as he discussed a lot more general GENCON survival tips, and his love for RPGs.

Blue Yonder – Hyperbowl – Episode 73

Busy week for A.Ron and Jim.  A.Ron breaks down his various trials and tribulations including a Jim Jones mindfuck, a breakup, getting his PANFI on with his boy, and golfing in Satan’s Asshole.  We also launched a very successful podcast on Breaking Bad, and were interviewed on The Amazingly Pulp SHOOOOOOOWWWWWW!! We bring the listeners up do date with some follow up to the male privelidge aspect of our cast with Madbrew last week.  I don’t know what to make of this take, in particular, of a feminist pondering male privildge through the prism of her own white privlidge.  I don’t doubt the basic truth of her premise, but I’m not sure what to do with this information.

Breaking Good – Breaking Bad News – Friday 07/22/11 Edition

Dammit, I posted yesterday’s news under the Blue Yonder section by mistake.  I’ll try not to make the same mistake going forward.  They’re just awfully close together in the “Categories” box in wordpress.  Moving on… I really identified with a few points in this article in the Sioux City Journal by the AP.  Ever since…
