    Join Jonstar, Evan, and Greg, as they talk about what’s happening in anime and what we’d rather watch than play! PLUS – Jackass mascots, offensive ninjas, and our favorite video game CEOs! (more…)

  • Dungeons & Doritos :: D&D Q&A 2

    Long, long ago a legend was born… a legend of crusaders… and corn chips… of Dungeons & Doritos…

    This groundbreaking hybrid of an actual play podcast and an audio drama blundered through dice rolls and spun sordid tales of mayhem, until it was suddenly silenced. However, while the giant slumbers, the cast and fans of Dungeons & Doritos pine ever for the gleaming day when it shall return. And lo – dusting off our musty feed – it’s the second D&D Q&A!

    Join Cap (Jamela), Colin (Barty), and Lefty Lucy (Lefty) as well as special surprise guests for a reunion where YOU ask the questions! Learn secret backstories, plans, plots, and characters that never came to fruition, roleplaying challenges, and much more! (more…)

    We explore some mild party drama and talk about how to resolve it, but the real meat of this episode is where we dive off the cliff into the dangerous waters of damage scaling. Our proposed solution is guaranteed to be controversial, but if geeks like us enjoy anything… it’s arguing.

    Discussing the month in pop culture isn’t always Child’s Play, but buddi, we’re here to Change Your Mind like Steven Universe!

    It’s time for the boys of Flame ON! to rise from the ashes like a newly resurrected Cyclops and assemble around their rectangle table to discuss the pop culture topics that are fresh on their lips! This month they dive into lively discussions on Hamilton, the end of an era on Steven Universe, the beginning of the dawn of Age of X-Man, and a sneak (spoiler free) peek at How To Train Your Dragon 3. Of course, our discussion wouldn’t be complete without the boys sharing what is giving them LIIIIIIFE in the 1-UPs segment!

  • The Call of Cthulhu Mystery Program :: Episode 8 :: Dénouement

    The Call of Cthulhu Mystery Program is live tabletop roleplaying turned into a 1930s radio serial. A cinematic audio drama wrought with unknowable horror and black comedy.

    The theatre is a magical place. A place where fact becomes fiction, fantasy becomes flesh… the human experience is laid bare! Fitting then that Boston’s Monarch Theater should be the site of a horrendous ritual that also happens to be a stage play… a diabolical work called The King in Yellow.

    If performed, it wouldn’t just be the dénouement for our heroes, but perhaps the world as we know it. (more…)

  • Nerdy Show :: Pitching in the Wind

    The Nerdy Show Network’s flagship podcast unloads on the latest geek news and happenings! Except when it doesn’t. Sometimes it mutates into something else for a hot minute, and this is one of those times.

    The wildly-swinging hits keep on coming! How far will we veer off of our usual platter of geeky chatter? And for how long? Indefinitely?! Well at the very least we’ll always stay true to what you’ve come to expect from us for the past decade: surreal tangents and strange comedy. In this episode – Cap, La Valle, and Doug team up for a creative experiment in which Cap plays a high-powered Hollywood executive type taking pitches from hapless writers.

    Which of these absurd ideas will get green lit for production? Whose hopes and dreams will get eaten alive by the Hollywood monster? How far will these poor saps go to break a tie and “win” this pitch party? (more…)

    We delve into our hopes and dreams when preparing to sit down with a new gaming group. Also, what is magic? Is it the power that underlies all reality, like The Force? Is it an alien essence being unknowingly mined by the collective unconscious for the benefit of our devourers? Is it like trying to tell a stranger about rock and roll?

    We don’t know! Let’s just make something up.
