It’s all about new mounts and e-sports excitement on this latest episode! Our discussion question: Part 1: Jules gives an update on her decision to reply to the two people from her past. Part 2: It’s my 3-year anniversary and I want to make it extra special for my girlfriend. Do you have any ideas on gifts from the heart?  Our Think Tank question: I’ve been planning to go to BlizzCon all year. My trip is paid for, but all the money I saved for food and incidentals has been used up by unexpected car repairs. 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!

Peer pressure begets flying? Jules channels Forrest Gump? It’s our relationship episodes - new ones, old ones, and moving on from broken ones. Our discussion question: Jules brings a situation from her real life, because she’s been contacted randomly by two different people from her past that she didn’t want to hear from again. Should she respond or not reply if she doesn’t want these people in her life again?  Our Think Tank question: I was in a 9-year relationship that ended in July, and a girl I’ve had feelings for for years asked me out when I broke up with my girlfriend. I really want to be with her, but I feel like I’m constantly screwing up and not doing things right to make her happy.

It’s a holiday weekend, but that won’t stop us! Our discussion question: I have a crush on a woman, but I don’t think it will turn out to go anywhere. Should I tell her? If so, how should I tell her? Our Think Tank question: How do you maintain balance with WoW when you have a family? I want to make sure I have enough time to play since I enjoy the game so much.  Be a part of the show by sending your Tell Us One Thing questions, feedback, and requests for advice to questions@taurenthinktank.com.

Our FitForBlizzCon updates, more streams, and walking in Memphis start out this show on our new recording night-Sundays at 8pm CDT! Our discussion question: I’m a poor adult college student trying to support my family with a side endeavor website business, but I don’t know how to get the word out. What can I do? Our Think Tank question: I like to collect mounts and tabards, but every guild I’ve been in has been people competing or trying to beat me in my achievement goals. I’ve been playing solo for so long to avoid it. Should I seek out a guild again because I’m feeling lonely?  Be a part of the show by sending your Tell Us One Thing questions, feedback, and requests for advice to questions@taurenthinktank.com.

Mount news, raiding and Ren Faire meetup stories on this week’s episode. Our discussion question: I sometimes dream that I’m cheating on my girlfriend, even though I don’t want to cheat on her! Am I a bad person for having these dreams? Our Think Tank question: My guild has just stopped doing anything together and it’s really bothering me. I’m not really not somebody who likes to create events or make people do things, but I don’t want to leave. What should I do?

It’s a week of multiple mounts and near-misses for Jules and Marconin this week! Our discussion question: Why are some people so quick to jump into a trusting friendship, and expect me to feel the same? It’s hard for me to make friends and trust that they really like me. Our Think Tank question: I just found out that the man who I always called “Dad” is not really my father, and he’s been stealing money from me all my life. Should I take legal action or just get out and never come back?  Be a part of the show by sending your Tell Us One Thing questions, feedback, and requests for advice to questions@taurenthinktank.com.

Our discussion question: Why do we get so uncomfortable talking about money - both asking for it for what we do, and comparing ourselves to others? Our Think Tank question: I have a problem, and its name is whiskey. I drink to feel better about my problems, but my drinking causes me even more problems. What can I do?  You can contact Tony directly with questions and advice about therapy at anthonymbean@gmail.com Be a part of the show by sending your Tell Us One Thing questions, feedback, and requests for advice to questions@taurenthinktank.com.

Note: This week’s discussion topic is adult in nature and parental discretion is advised! Marconin is adjusting to this daywalking stuff, and Jules has been a busy girl with the Well Played party Kickstarter promotion. Our discussion question: As a response to episode 144 and the cheating wife, what behaviors do YOU think constitute cheating? Our Think Tank question: I’m so hesitant to join a guild because I don’t feel like I can contribute to it. I’m a new player and everyone is so ahead of me in everything. Can I make friends even without doing activities with them?  Be a part of the show by sending your Tell Us One Thing questions, feedback, and requests for advice to questions@taurenthinktank.com.

Marconin delivers another epic audio gem, and some personal news! Jules discusses the Well Played Party’s progress, and Cat on Fire’s current raid progression. Our discussion question: Are Americans much more cautious with letting their kids go places alone than other countries? Where did this all come from? Our Think Tank question: I met a guildie in real life, and she has become really frustrating. She wants me to go with her to a random meeting of people off of Craigslist, but I really don’t want to be a part of this.
