We’re back after a week of family visiting for Jules, with some good news from Marconin! Our Discussion question: Listener Mahkteld sent us an article for discussion this week entitled “Why ‘Follow Your Passion’ Is Bad Advice”, and we talk about our own experiences related to the adage itself. Is following your passion something we should all aspire to, or is it something that can lead us off the path to happiness in life?

**Advisory - our Think Tank Question is adult in nature and listener discretion is advised. You might not want to listen to this with the kids in the car, okay? :) **  Our Think Tank question: I’m in a new relationship and we are moving in the direction of wanting to be intimate with each other. I’ve learned through previous relationships that I enjoy things that are more than just the “normal” physical stuff, but I don’t know how to open up and tell my new girlfriend about the things I’m into. What can I do? 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!

Oh no, the Blizzard Store is on sale! Will the show go on? (Yep, it did!) Our Think Tank question: From our discussion two weeks ago about the collector mindset, some comments were made in the chat room about spouses finding their partner’s interests dumb, making fun of them, and/or not understanding of them. Why do we make fun of or shame the ones we love for what they enjoy?

Twitch partner and competitive Heroes of the Storm player Steph, aka Oddish, returns to the show for an update on everything that’s happened in her life this past year (spoilers: it’s a lot!), and to help us with our listener question of the week! Our Think Tank question: I’m a transgender lesbian, and I would like to come out to my raid team. I’m nervous on how to do this, because it’s either got to be on the spot during raid via voice or in raid text chat, and I don’t know how people are going to react. I wish my voice was more feminine to help this process along, but it’s not, and I’m afraid people will continue to use the wrong pronouns when talking to me. What advice do you have for me to come out without making it weird?

It’s all about BlizzCon announcements and Overwatch to start this week off right! Our Discussion topic: The collector mindset - Marconin is a collector and Jules is not, so we talk about what it’s like to understand the other person’s mindset, and why collectors are driven to get all the things! How much is too much, where is the line, and how can you be supportive of people who collect when you aren’t driven by it yourself?

Jules has been traveling, Marconin has been mount-hunting, and we both got to do some serious raiding this week! Our Think Tank question: I’m a caretaker to family members who are dealing with mental health issues like anxiety and severe depression. How can I decompress and relax better beyond the things that I’m doing, being a caretaker and having to be “on” all the time?
