We've talked about potential extra-terrestrial life, and now we're talking about potential extraordinary terrestrial life. The search for, and study of, mysterious or unknown creatures - or cryptozoology - is our subject of interest this week. We take a generous look at this often-mocked fringe pseudoscience by exploring the known, real animals who were once thought to only be creatures of myth and legend.

And then we make fun of some of the wackier cryptids.  Like these:

In the spirit of this auspicious day, we rank the good Star Wars movies, shout out our favorite Expanded Universe entries, compliment George Lucas, explain why Jar Jar might just be better than Chewie, and Evan passes a Star Wars QUIZ!

...Wait, what was that fourth one?

To find out, watch Hard Truths with Doug and see if you don't view everyone's least favorite Gungan in a slightly different light.

In our final Very Special Episode, we join Teddy and the Bassman once again for a grand two-parter. This time, we play a couple more standard games. In our episode, hear us try to outwit the great sayings of the ages in Wise and Otherwise, then listen to T&tB's half where we play everyone's favorite awful game: Cards Against Humanity.

When there are tigers on the hill...

We're more than 40 episodes in and we realized that even though we have shared a bunch of stuff about ourselves with you guys, you don't really KNOW us. Let's fix that! Come get to know us! Carissa issues a challenge to the listeners - that's you - to answer some or all of our Getting to Know You questions and email them to us.

Also, this week we're priming the pump for the upcoming Podcast Awards! Click the link or visit www.podcastawards.com to nominate Lucky 10,000 in the Games and Hobbies category and also for a People's Choice Award.

We would love to win an award for you guys, so vote early, vote often! (Or at least early, since you can only vote once and nominations close April 30.)

Recorded live from the Steampunk Library, we proudly present Part Two of our collaboration with fellow Bearded Pods cast Teddy and the Bassman. Evan and Carissa play some fun games and wax philosophical with the whimsical pair, celebrating the chance to record together in one physical location.

To hear the other half of the evening's festivities (namely: the Room 101 Game), you will want to listen to Teddy and the Bassman's latest episode, found here.

We get into close encounters of all kinds this week on The Lucky Ten Thousand. Well, really just the alien kinds. UFOs, extra-terrestrials, string theory: it's all here. Come with us on a universal adventure. We promise not to anally probe you. Unless you're into that.

Recorded live in Evan's studio, our intrepid hosts are back together again in a face-to-face encounter of their own for the first of a series of very special episodes from the Bearded Pods Network. Stay tuned for more!

The internet is obsessed with cats, and we are no exception to that, but this week we pay tribute to man's best friend. Dogs have been with us - historically and personally - for a very long time, and we take some time to honor that bond. We wax on about our own dogs, once again dispel the myth that any dog is naturally aggressive or dangerous, lay down some fun canine trivia, and generally celebrate the unconditional love of our puppy pals.

In loving memory of Z&R's Li'l Cricket, 12.23.2001-3.19.2016. We miss you, Bubbykins.

All the world's a stage
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances
And one man in his time plays many parts.

Evan and Carissa share their fondest memories of the noblest art, which mostly means all the best fuck-ups from their history in theatre. For any actor, director, audience member, or lover of blooper reels, have we got a show for you.

This week Evan and Carissa solve gender relations!

OK, not really, but we do discuss some of the more prevalent issues between the genders within the overarching geeky communities - most specifically in gaming culture.  While we won't be winning any Peace Prizes for our contribution here, we take a moderate, common sense, humanitarian look at some of the misapprehensions, misunderstandings, and misogyny that plague games and geek ventures in general.  Sparked by a particularly egregious incident at the Dota 2 Shanghai Major tournament, Carissa explains both of the friendzones (and how to get out of them) before tackling a more serious problem.

Remember, you don't need to be a White Knight to be a decent human being. Warning: some offensive language presented.
