New mounts to share, new boss kills to report, and an unintentionally-supersized show, just for you! Our discussion question: What can do I to keep the racist, sexist, and offensive behavior in Trade Chat, and people who kill NPCs for fun from negatively impacting my WoW experience? Our Think Tank question: I’m getting treatment for very vivid thoughts of walking up to strangers and killing them. I have a girlfriend who I want to be honest with, but she’s never seen me at my worst. How can I talk to her about this?

There’s some big news to share for Cat on Fire and Marconin is doing his best Orc peon impression...in real life. Our discussion question: I’ve found my passion of being a stand-up comedian, but my two jobs leave me with no time to actually practice in open-mic nights. At what point do you decide to put your dream on hold, or should you just throw caution to the wind and go for it? Our Think Tank question: My raiding group has a problem team member, but the dynamics of our cross-server, multi-guild raid composition makes it difficult for her behavior to be addressed, and she keeps acting out. Should I stand aside or get involved? 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 a holiday weekend, but for poor Marconin, it’s a long... weekend.  Check out this episode for 5 minutes of thoughts about no flying in Draenor, and for Marconin’s story on how he hurt himself playing trombone. Our discussion question: Have you ever had a time when you felt your life lacked purpose? What did you do to get past it? Our Think Tank question: We have a transgender woman on our team, and though the team is accepting, we sometimes slip up and refer to her as “he” or him” without meaning to. How do we get more comfortable as a team when we accidentally mix up gender pronouns?

It’s our 3-year anniversary, and we’re celebrating with some fun segments - Tell Me A Story and the return of the Taste Tanks with Japanese Kit Kats! Our discussion question: When I get rejected by people I want to date, I just put it aside and don’t really care about it much. Is this okay to do? Our Think Tank question: I suffer from 30+ suicidal ideations per day, but I’ve found a way to manage it on my own because I can’t go to therapy. Is this a good idea?

We’re back after the Minnesota Meetup - lots to share and update you on! Our discussion question: Do you feel that people seek out compliments and praise from others because our society is so reluctant to give praise to others? Why is this? Our Think Tank question: My wife cheated on me, and I’m trying to get past the sadness for myself and my daughter. I love her and want to be with her, but I feel like I’ve failed at everything. What advice do you have for me? 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!

Raiding, gold-making, and leveling...and advice! Our discussion question: I bought my first BlizzCon ticket! I’m attending alone and I’m nervous about not knowing anyone. What can I do to feel more comfortable? Our Think Tank question: Is it necessary to be a jerk to be a raid leader? My teammates are leaving because our leader makes the experience uncomfortable.  Be a part of the show by sending your Tell Us One Thing questions, feedback, and requests for advice to questions@taurenthinktank.com.

Marconin has a mount-collector’s milestone to share on this week’s show! Our discussion question: I want to find my passion but I don’t know how. I think I really enjoy PvP but I don’t think I’m entertaining enough to stream or do a podcast. How do I look for a passion? Our Think Tank question: The person hired as our plant manager is causing harm to our company. I have the pull to get him demoted but I don’t want to make anyone angry. What should I do?  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!

There’s WoW game tokens, life changes, and meetups to discuss on this week’s show! Think Tank question #1: I still have feelings for my ex-girlfriend, who dumped me 7 years ago. We’re both married, but I had to skip my mother’s wedding because I knew my ex would be there. How can I get over these feelings? Think Tank Question #2: I look in the mirror and I see a monster. I go through the motions in life, trying to act normal, but nearly everyone I come in contact with seems to be not worth their oxygen. Can anyone come back from this?  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!

We’re back after a week of travel, sickness, big life changes brewing, and a whole lot more. Our discussion topic: How do you get into podcasting? What investment do you need, and how do you find your passion? Our question of the week: I have a hard time with fear of making big changes in my life. I need to pursue a change in my career so I can support our growing family. How do I get myself over the fear and just get going?  Be a part of the show by sending your Tell Us One Thing questions, feedback, and requests for advice to questions@taurenthinktank.com.

Marconin has new mounts to feed, and Jules is running old raids for gold with no idea what to spend it on! Our discussion topic: I gave my number to my coworker two weeks ago, but she hasn’t called or texted. When I asked, she said she’s been busy, but she keep flirting with me at work. Is this worth pursuing? Our question of the week: I’ve been raiding with a group since Wrath, and I’ve switched my spec from tank to DPS to get my spot back after leaving for a while. I’ve won my tank spot back, but now the team is planning to merge with another and I’m being asked to DPS again, which I don’t want. Do I have the right to be upset about this?  Be a part of the show by sending your Tell Us One Thing questions, feedback, and requests for advice to questions@taurenthinktank.com.
