It’s a week of holiday decorating, coffee mug philosophy, garrisons and raiding! Our discussion topic: When we say we don’t have enough hours in the day to do all we think we should do, what does that really equate to? As gamers, do we spend our time differently than other people? Our question of the week: How do I fight the urge to vent all of my frustrations about my relationship to my closest friends and not betray my partner’s trust by oversharing private details to other people?

We’re back after a week of illness and….dunging?! We give our initial impressions of the content to this point, and what we’re doing after level 100. Our discussion topic: I’ve been playing Horde for many expansions, but after reading some of the backstory of what Garrosh did to the Night Elves, I can’t play my Horde characters anymore! What can I do? Our advice question of the week: I have mental and physical disabilities, and my mother blames all of my problems on WoW and other games. Please help me understand why she blames everything on my love of games.  Be a part of the show by sending your Tell Us One Thing questions, Slash Moos, feedback, and requests for advice to questions@taurenthinktank.com.

Jules & Marconin are in the same room, recording live from the AIE Guild Hall at the Hilton Anaheim hotel!

It’s one week until BlizzCon, and we might be a little excited!  Our discussion topic: a video went viral this week featuring a young woman walking the streets of NYC being catcalled by various men. We discuss both sides of the argument and how it applies to the gaming world between men and women. Our advice question comes from a listener who cannot remember his life prior to his 13th birthday, has dreamt about terrible tragedies and catastrophic events, and now no longer dreams at all. What does this all mean and should he try to find out what happened to him?  Be a part of the show by sending your Tell Us One Thing questions, Slash Moos, feedback, and requests for advice to questions@taurenthinktank.com.

The new co-host has been selected and is revealed on the show! Our discussion topic: destructive behavior towards others on the internet is in the news more and more. Where does this come from? What is it motivated by? Our advice question: I’m a nerd among nerds, and I’m afraid to talk to people, especially at BlizzCon. How can I make friends and feel like I’m part of the community?

Sharku is our guest co-host this week once again! Discussion topic: a female gamer wants to know why some female gamers use their sexuality to communicate with people and make others uncomfortable in the process. Our advice question of the week: I’m in a social guild, but sometimes I like to just be by myself and not join in voice chat even though they invite me to. Am I being too hard on myself for feeling guilty that I just like my alone time?

Marconin returns for another guest appearance this week!

Sharku joins Jules as a special guest host for this episode. Is the brewing backlash against those who identify as gamers a result of years of bullying and discrimination from people who enjoyed these interests as kids? Our question of the week comes from AJ, who feels she is dealing with depression but is afraid to say something to her family because she may scare them.

We're back this week with special guest host, Marconin! Jules shares where the next phase of TTT is heading. Our discussion topic comes from an article on TheVerge.com that links WoW addiction to the new "undelete character" function that will be added in Warlords of Draenor. Our question of the week comes from a player who cannot sleep - sometimes for 3-9 days at a time. What can be done that hasn't already been tried? A tremendous thank you to all of you who have reached out to share your support and appreciation for the show. We are thrilled to be back!
