    Rem is very happy with Guardians of the Galaxy and Jules went to the Ren Faire last weekend with some listeners of the show! Our discussion topic: do you get nostalgic for things in-game, or experiences of games you play?

    We have feedback from you, Tell Us One Thing, a Taste Tank segment featuring Japanese candies, chili-flavored chocolate and a really gross Jelly Belly Russian Roulette. Our question of the week: I'm on a raid team, but I'm only 15 and afraid to talk on Mumble. How can I be accepted in the group even though I'm so much younger?

    Rem's car got an unpleasant run-in and Jules recaps the MN Meetup from last week.

Tell Us One Thing, feedback from you about our religion topic in Episode 108, and Slash Moos. Our advice question of the week: Have you ever felt that people are nice to you only because they need something from you? How do you handle this?

    Rem has been busy vacationing and enjoying time with his kids - mostly! Jules has a funny story from work, and is playing a boosted paladin from her days in BC. Our discussion topic this week: why people in a large Alliance guild feel it's okay to repeatedly say the guild would be improved if it were Horde instead. There's Tell Us One Thing, Slash Moos, and a touching feedback letter. Our question of the week: why does religion play such a large part in dating? Should it dictate whether two people are compatible with each other? Next week, Jules will be attending the MN Meetup on Saturday, July 26th from 3-7pm at the Herkimer Pub in Minneapolis - please come and say hi!

    We're back after a false start on Wednesday - luckily, Rem's internet didn't go down this time! Rem went to ConnectiCon and Jules went to Nerdtacular, and we both have lots of stories about people we met and places we saw. Tell Us One Thing, an update from a previous letter, feedback from you, and we answer a question about the challenges of losing interest in things after being asked to step up in a more prominent role, and the power of saying "no" when it's right.

    It's a Sunday night show because Rem spent Saturday night meeting Marconin for the first time! Jules is jetting off to Nerdtacular this week and has some stories about her cats. Tell Us One Thing, feedback from you, and a big discussion topic this week: what do you do when you just can't ask for help - from anybody? In game, in life, from your friends or spouse? What does it mean and where does it come from? Be a part of the show by sending us your topics for discussion and requests for advice to questions@taurenthinktank.com. Slash Moo, everybody!

    Rem has figured out how to get a DK on the alpha and Jules has been raiding 25-man heroics again. Rem has an epic Father's Day story!

    Rem has some impressions of the WoD alpha and Jules is now 3/14H in Siege of Orgrimmar. Tell 'em about Bucky? Our discussion topic of the week submitted by a listener: why are WoW players so close-minded and biased against other games?

    The alpha is out! Did Rem get his? Jules has been raiding 25M Heroics this week. This week's discussion topic: when faced with racist, sexist, or similar type comments, when it is okay to speak out? Should one speak out against it? Tell Us One Thing returns, and we read feedback letters from you. This week's Think Tank questions: 1. When your raiders are stuck on Garrosh and people are losing motivation and arguing about strategy, how do you get everyone on the same page? 2. What is the difference between trolling and bullying, and what do they actually mean? Be a part of the show by sending your requests for advice, discussion topics about gaming and gaming culture, and general questions to our email at questions@taurenthinktank.com. Slash Moo!

About

A weekly podcast hosted by Rem and Jules, Tauren Think Tank focuses on the World of Warcraft player; more specifically, the drama that may or may not come with playing WoW, both in-game and in real life. Our show is an audio advice column, where our listeners send e-mails or tweets and we answer them with advice and lighthearted humor. We focus our questions on Guild and Raid Leadership, drama with other players, conflicts with real life, personal dilemmas with the game, etc. Rem and Jules are guild officers and long-time players of WoW. We have experience with 10-man raiding, PvE, and PvP, and with balancing our busy lives and families outside the game.
