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!

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!

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?
