Lucky 10,000 A podcast for anyone who ever geeks out about anything.

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!

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.

Humans are portrayed in most extra-terrestrial science fiction as puny, weak, insignificant, and utterly outclassed by any and all offworld explorers who happen upon them. This week, Carissa and Evan ask: what if humanity isn't a pile of crap but is, instead, terrifying and bewildering to our galactic neighbors? Maybe we are the horror movie villain of ET's nightmares, and we set out to explain why we might not be the primitive hairless apes of most modern science fiction.

Humanity! Fuck yeah!
