    It’s another Happy Moo Year! Our discussion topic: A listener shared that she is asexual and her boyfriend has asked that she not share that with anyone. Why do we fear what we don’t understand, enough to make others’ scared to reveal personal things about themselves?

About

A weekly podcast hosted by Jules & Marconin, Tauren Think Tank focuses on the World of Warcraft player; more specifically, the interpersonal issues that players experience both in-game and in their outside lives. This show is an audio advice column, where listeners send e-mails or tweets for the hosts to answer them with real-life, practical advice mixed with lighthearted humor. TTT focus its questions on in-game concerns such as guild life, raid team issues, and interactions with other players, as well as "real life" issues like depression, anxiety, LGBT relations, and much more. Both Jules and Marconin are long-time players of WoW, who have experience with 10-man raiding, PvE, and PvP, while balancing their busy lives and families outside the game.
