Episode 399 - Gamer Babies

September 29, 2018

It's been a rough week. We're all chilling on Shiva's back patio, but we've got a lot of un fun topics to cover. There's good stuff too, so we balance it out. We've got Cosby going to jail, Elon Musk's refusal to log off continuing to kick his butt, Kavanaugh and the ghouls in DC, and Gamers being bad. On the good side, Seattle is vacating misdemeanor pot convictions, there's some fun new games out, Doctor Who and The Good Place are back soon, there's new cons in Oklahoma, and furry kickstarters passing their goals.

Savrin’s Newbie Convention Organizer’s Guide

September 14, 2018

I was inspired by putting together my prior video about my time in the Brony fandom to really delve deep into the steps required to get a convention off the ground. This goes deep into the hows and whys, and covers things you probably haven't thought of if you're the type of person who thinks they'd like to start a convention.

Episode 396 - Fear Of The Derp State

September 8, 2018

This week it's Fuzz and Savrin at his apartment, as Shiva is off in the mile-high land of Colorado still. We've got brief touches on the two Solo things Savrin put out, Twitter being bad so try Mastodon, a 5000 calorie munchie box, LeVar Burton hanging out with pals, Doctor Who coming back, India doing away with the gay sex ban, and amusing minor league sports teams.

Southpaws Solo - My Time Among The Horses

September 1, 2018

Savrin recorded a followup to the previous Solo episode, giving a speedrun version of his personal experiences in the pony fandom and why it broke his brain a little.


Southpaws Solo - Friendship Was Magic

August 30, 2018

Savrin wanted to get some thoughts out on an article with the same title as the episode that was recently posted to Polygon. Fuzz and Shiva aren't going to be able to record this week for various reasons, so this is a rare solo recording.

Feel free to yell at Savrin about this later.

Episode 395 - What A Month This Week Has Been

August 27, 2018

This week starts out politics heavy, as we discuss the last 48 hours of political nonsense that happened before we recorded. We knew there'd be more after this weeks recording and.. we weren't wrong. We also discuss Eurofurence, the 'professionalism' of convention organizations making firm policy statements, Verizon siding with wildfires over firefighters, and Fuzz gives an extensive report of his experiences at WorldCon in San Jose.

Episode 394 - Delete Twitter

August 20, 2018

Twitter is bad, y'all. 

This week we're all back at Shiva's place with a load of topics. Fuzz is going to WorldCon, a douchebag is planning on protesting it with his fashy friends, Twitter continues to be bad but people are finding ways to push back, furries you'd want to avoid are using pro-fascist pins to provide aposematic coloring at a con near you,  a couple good furry news bits, a neat queer indie comic kickstarter, and the FDA has approved a generic epipen.
