Our special guest is Nicole Du Cane from Heroes of Fitness! Together, Nicole and her husband Tim Spencer make exercise more accessible for gamers through their popular Heroes of Fitness Twitch channel, where they stream games and take regular workout breaks that viewers can follow along with. Our Discussion question: I have gained about 60-70 pounds over the past few years due to a change in medication. I feel ashamed of my body and how exercise just doesn’t seem to get me anywhere. I can barely walk on a treadmill without feeling pain. This isn’t me - this body isn’t me! What can I do?

We’re back with sniffles and smiles, stories and sagas from the last two weeks. Our Discussion question: Changing your perceptions of people: how do you form impressions of others? Have you ever liked someone at first, only to change your mind? Are first impressions always correct?  Be a part of the show by sending your Tell Us One Thing questions, feedback, and requests for advice to questions@taurenthinktank.com. Slash Moo, everybody!

Marconin is catching them all and Jules is finding muscles she never knew she had! Our Think Tank question: I realized this week that I’m old. I’ve always thought of myself as 16, and things didn’t bother me, but now the list of things I don’t like is getting longer and my patience is shorter. I’m cynical and tired of watching people make the same mistakes over and over.

It’s a week of personal changes, goals, and trying new things for Jules and Marconin. Our Think Tank question: My family bonded together over playing Overwatch, but my wife started a relationship outside of our marriage with a man she met through the game. Our marriage is over, but my kids still play the game with my wife, often grouping with her and the man she left me to be with. I can’t help but think if I never brought the game into our family, we’d be together, at least for a bit longer.

**DISCLAIMER AND POSSIBLE TRIGGER WARNING** This episode features an interview with a survivor of sexual assault and rape. Listener and parental discretion is advised. 

Tonight, Jules sits down with CTR Guild member, leader, and friend Turarts, to talk about sexual violence and rape from her own very recent experience. This raw and unfiltered conversation talks about the realities of sexual violence in our society, how easily it can go unreported, and the aftermath of recovery from the perspective of someone who is going through her own journey with it right now.

If you or anyone you know is a victim of sexual violence, assault or rape, please call the National Sexual Assault Hotline at 800-656-HOPE, or visit rainn.org for more information and how to get help and support.

We’ve got updates about moving, about raiding, and about mounts! We’re also heading to Nerdtacular next week, so no regular show recording, though we’ll try to record something on site if we can. Our Think Tank listener question: I am an atheist living in the south, and I’m terrified of what would happen if my coworkers found out that I’m not Christian. I believe I would never be able to get a promotion if it was discovered. What can I do?

It’s a week of excitement, house purchase news and some host brain glitches! Our Think Tank listener question: I have been helping the new guy who I will be working with to find a place to live because he is new to the city. He can’t drive, and I feel like I should offer to drive him to and from work to help him out. The problem is, I really don’t want to do this forever, and I feel like if I offer, there will be no going back. What should I do?

The CTR Party Kickstarter is out, Jules is getting ready to move in a couple of weeks and Marconin has been landing some sweet Tracer deals! We did a follow up on last week’s Think Tank listener question: I have two young children and a marriage on the brink of divorce. I don’t know whether we should stay together to make a better life for my kids or how I could be a loving father when both parents are not together. What can I do here? In addition, we did an extended Tell Us One Thing discussion about road trips based on a listener letter about road tripping to Nerdtacular from Maryland.
