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.

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?

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?

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!

We ran our own social experiment last week and we didn't even know it! Rem is getting the itch to play WoW again, and Jules is trying to enjoy the leveling process again. Our discussion topic: does the American culture and work ethic dictate the level of our reactions when things in the gaming world change or don't go as planned? We have Tell Us One Thing, feedback from you, and a continuing discussion about depression in our question of the week - what do you do when you're feeling depressed but you still feel like you should keep raiding even when you don't want to? Be a part of the discussion, send us your requests for advice and share your feedback with us at questions@taurenthinktank.com. Slash Moo, everybody!

Rem has been on vacation and playing Hearthstone and Jules is busy with BlizzCon prep already! Our discussion topic of the week: why are people so willing to jump in outrage against Blizzard and not give them credit on the things they do right? We have Tell Us One Thing, feedback from you and the final food tasting from Jenn Morton's box. Our question of the week: as someone who is pessimistic, sarcastic and blunt, can you suggest any sites where I can find like-minded people to socialize with?
