We’re back with weird weather, trying for some new challenges in our lives, and wiping the raid at 0%? Our Discussion question: I’m a high school senior, and my dad feels I should have a work ethic like his. He wants me to get a more labor intensive job so I can learn what hard work is, and make sure I work full-time in school so I don’t have debt coming out of college. He doesn’t understand that I use gaming to relax and I’m constantly on edge because of his threats to take my computer away if I don’t do what he asks. What can do I do?

We start out our first show of 2017 with some real talk and real discoveries on our own life journeys. Our Discussion question: I feel like I don’t fit in. Non-nerdy people don’t get me and I don’t feel nerdy enough for nerdy people. I love being around people, but I’m paranoid and fearful I’ll say something wrong. What can I do?

It’s our last show of 2016, and we start it off right with our annual Holiday parody song reveal. This year, we lament “The 12 Pains of Legion” and we hope you enjoy! Our Discussion question: a quote by Stephen McCranie, cartoonist and writer of comic essays about creativity: “The master has failed more times than the beginner has even tried.” What does this mean to us, and what does it mean as we step out of 2016 into a new year?

It’s been a busy week of travel, and making travel plans for PAX South - we’re speaking again in 2017! Our Think Tank Question: I’m the main caretaker for my dad as he’s going through chemotherapy, and the stress is causing me to have meltdowns and panic attacks. My siblings aren’t helping and I really want their support. How can I manage my stress, help my dad cheer up, and get my siblings more involved in helping out?

It’s the holiday season, and our time is being filled with raiding, working, and blowing up other players in video games! Our Discussion question: This week, we followed up on the homework from last week - to count how many times you said, “I should…” or “I shouldn’t….”, record the frequency and context, and what you learned from listening to your inner voice. We also talk about tips to control those negative thoughts and not let them dominate your everyday life with an article from Psychology Today:  https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/shyness-is-nice/201305/stop-fighting-your-negative-thoughts?collection=164978

It’s the day after Thanksgiving. Our bellies are full, and our minds are ready for another round of discussion! Our Think Tank question: I’m in a long-distance relationship, and gone to see her a few times. The last time I visited, she really wanted nothing to do with me, and I felt like I left single instead of having a girlfriend. Our communication has waned to almost nothing. Everything is telling me it’s over, but I tend to overthink things a lot. What should I do?

We’re back from BlizzCon, our voices have returned and we’re healed up from illness - we missed you guys! We recap our time at BlizzCon and the Well Played party. Our Discussion question: My coworker was fired for poor performance, and he is suing my company for something they didn’t do. He’s lied to ensure they pay him for wrongful termination. We used to be friends, and it makes me sick that he would do this. I’m losing sleep and have a lot of anxiety about this situation. How can I handle this better?  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!

It’s the week before BlizzCon and all through the cast, both our hosts were excited. How long will it last? Our Discussion question: As nerds, why are we so divisive in our fandoms, especially when someone doesn’t like what we like? The announcement of “Weird” Al Yankovic as the BlizzCon closing performer brought strong reactions from fans. How can we be better at supporting each other in loving what we love, and making it safe to do so without criticism?  Be a part of the show by sending your Tell Us One Thing questions, feedback, and requests for advice to questions@taurenthinktank.com.

Marconin’s got mount envy? Over something Jules has? What is our world coming to? Our Discussion question: The inevitabiliy of change: why do we fear change when it’s a constant? How can we handle change when it’s unexpected, and be better about facing changes we need to make for our own happiness?
