74 A Filthy Casual’s Guide to the State of Video Games

One of the few episodes I've re-recorded, I look at the what I believe to be the state of the video game industry through the lens of what I've played recently: Kingdom Hearts 3, Horizon Zero Dawn, Spider-Man, Soul Calibur 6, Hitman 2, and The Witcher 3. I also provide a brief history of my own gaming experiences, and what influence they've provided in terms of story-telling. Also, thanks to Call Me Kevin, RT Games, Witcher George, and Brian David Gilbert at Polygon for the inspiration.

70 Hitman Miami: Flamingor the Vengeful

Well hot dog, only two days late! The audio and PS4 video kept falling out of sync for some reason (I suspect something fucky with Audacity) so this took a loooong time to edit. Regardless, here's me as a flamingo. I'm playing Spider-Man right now, and it's fucking beautiful. Also playing Soul Calibur 6. What are you guys playing?

58 Racist Cartoons and Incomplete Journalism, DWCB Sneak Peek!

Better late than never? Here, I chat about the recent controversy surrounding the cartoon of Serena Williams, and comparisons to the French satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo.

54 Interview with Arc Iris (Zachary Tenorio Miller & Ray Belli)

I chat with Arc Iris members Zach Tenorio Miller and Ray Belli about comedy, their careers, the writing process, the state of the industry, as well as a whole bunch of other shit. We recorded outside the Central Saloon in Seattle before their show. It was really fun interview and thank you to the band. Arc Iris is an experimental dream pop band out of Providence, Rhode Island, founded by ex-The Low Anthem frontwoman, Jocie Adams. Zach plays keys and Ray drums, and they recently toured with New Zealand powerhouse, Kimbra.

52 David James “DJ” Roy

Vancouver/ Toronto comedian, David James "DJ" Roy and I sat down to talk about his life of homelessness, comedy, being on the periphery of "the scene", the Vancouver housing crisis, his porn career, and a plethora of other things. Heads up: The audio quality is super sub-par; not sure what happened, but my apologies. It was a fun talk. I hope you can understand it. Check out DJ: https://www.opencomedy.com/davidjamesroy

44 Interview with JJ Caithcart

I met JJ Caithcart at his store, SCRAPE Records, October 7, 2010. Fresh out of high school, I became addicted to music, heavy metal in particular, and learning more and more, and JJ fed that addiction with aplomb. Over the next six years, I spent countless hours there, hanging out, talking, learning, listening, and was privileged enough to help with in-store meet-and-greets with bands like Gojira, and Devin Townsend. We talk the fate of the store, the record industry in general, and his partnership with Vancouver metal band, Zimmer's Hole. Below, you can find links to a Zimmer's Hole pre-order on Indiegogo, as well as other Scrape Records media. Check it out!

42: Louis CK

  My extremely nuanced opinion on Louis CK's sexual misconduct, recorded at night on Thursday the 9th. It's not that nuanced, I just wanted to say "nuanced". Nuance. Emily joins me about ten minutes in to talk about our feelings concerning CK's misconduct, our reactions as fans, and what the future holds. I am depressed,…
