Editor’s Note:

If it seems that Jayson is extraordinarily quiet at the end, it is not because we knocked him out. He had to leave to attend his kid’s baseball game… Good daddy.

Movies: Gamer/Nerd Culture – Ep 13

Apparently I should see it…

This week’s show is a bit different. We talk about some of our favorite movies, but we also have the perspective of Mandy (Deuce’s wife and Eric’s sister).

 

We also run long on this one. That is for two reasons: We intended to break this episode up into two parts, but decided that that was lame so we didn’t. The other reason is that it is not as tediously edited as our regular episodes. We did that because we wanted to convey the feeling of what it really is like to sit at the table with us as we bullshit.
