Week of: May 21 – May 28, 2012
This week I am joined by a new voice to the program, Elke, as we discuss Star Wars: The Old Republic and MMORPG gaming, as we put our full-frontal nerdery on display.
As a lifelong gamer, I have always avoided the world of Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games (MMORPG) due to the “time-suck” associated with them. However, as a life long Star Wars fan, the draw of a game dedicated to its universe was simply too hard to pass up.
On this week’s show, we cover two different perspectives from both a relative noob to the genre (yours truly) and the battle hardened experience of an MMO veteran, Elke. Therefore we tried to make the discussion accessible to both new players or those interested in trying the game, as well as to appeal to those who have been playing MMO’s for many years. Sprinkled throughout this geek fest is also some W.o.W and Diablo 3 chat.
As always, enjoy the show!

Gay Marriage This Week on Stimulated Boredom

Week of: May 14 – May 21, 2012

The topic of gay marriage made its way into the news again recently – conveniently during another election year – therefore I enlist the help of frequent guest-host, Patrick, as we discuss the subject within the context of equality, civil rights, religion and politics.

My opinion on the topic is well known by long time listeners of the program, however the debate has been renewed this week, prompted by a ban on same-sex marriage in North Carolina…where you can marry your cousin, just not your gay cousin.

In an election year, the reemergence of the gay marriage debate as a social wedge issue is as predictable as they come.

Also, spattered at the beginning and end of the program is a little tech-talk and gaming geekery. :)

As always, enjoy the show!
