In this very special episode, Rem and Jules are joined by the one and only Scott Johnson of The Instance (and many other shows).  After an extra long opening segment, they dig into Tell Us One Thing and answer a question in the Think Tank from a tennager who gets good grades and wants to know how to get his parents to allow him to play more WoW.  They then delve into a discussion about Scott and the community he's built and how his life has changed because of it.  This is an extra long show and of course Rem didn't set the music volumes at the correct level, so he does apologize for a slightly less audio quality than you're used to.  :)  Join the show questions@taurenthinktank.com and Slash MOO!

Rem talks to Jules who is LIVE at BlizzCon!  Through the generosity of the AIE Guild, Jules was able to procure some audio equipment and we have a full show!  Appearances by Jon and Ben of Azeroth Roundtable, Marconin, Brewmaster Cohumulone, Louiezz and Schmoopy, Arcayne the Frost Mage, and Sharku and Taurentine!  We discuss BlizzCon and Warlords of Draenor!  It's a live recording, so we do apologize about the slight difference in audio quality.  /moo!
