Don’t Make Me Turn This Podcast Around
Here it is, our 50th episode! All three hosts, Paul, Jacob, and Matthew, come together to re-examine some of our favorite questions and discussions from past episodes. We talk about the Joker, different ways of understanding violence, when heroes can or should kill, humorous vs. serious portrayals of heroes, and plan for the eventual ascension of our robot overlords.
Also of note- we were a bit punchy for this episode. It led to a great, and funny, discussion, but also a few slips of the tongue- including Matthew’s references at various points to “Chris Kapernick” and “Stuporman.” Please forgive those errors.
Here are the podcast episodes we referenced:
Ep 3: Suicidal Villains: Suicide Squad and the Nature of Bad Guys.
Ep 4: Vengeance! Exploring Desperado
Ep 10: Killing President Luthor
Ep 19: Why so Serious? The Joker
Ep 24: Logan on Logan
Ep 33: Ethics of our Robot Overlords
Ep 39: Thor and the Value of Fluff
We’ve started the conversation. Now we want to hear from you!

In honor of the late Sheldon Menery, we ask: What is Rule Zero – his philosophy that any game should start from a place of shared expectations – and what can it teach us about building community?
Caged Bishop Cosplay joins me to talk about his experience as a blerd (black nerd), intersectionality in fandom, and our shared love as masculine folks for Barbie.
