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...

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.

We are right chuffed to be joined this week by the Bearded Pods' very own Trevor Furlong, formerly of Scotland Yard and present acclaimed bassman of Teddy and the Bassman. In the first of what will hopefully be several appearances, our guest shares his experiences as a stranger in a not-terribly-as-strange-as-you'd-think land. Our talk ranges far and wide, touching Cockney rhyming slang, immigration culture shock and the lack thereof, imported television, subtle differences in humor, and more. Anglophiles like Carissa will not want to miss this episode.

After you finish here be sure to check out Trevor and Teddy's podcast, Teddy and the Bassman, another fine production found on the Bearded Pods Network.

Attention grammar nerds and logophiles: this one's for you! Reformed grammar nazi Carissa opens up her ever-expanding list of adult vocabulary words to share them with Evan - and you, our faithful listeners. Evan, in turn, shares a very few choice examples of the words with which Shakespeare graced us. We even toss in a few from across the seas, because what would a talk about English be if it didn't include some linguistic pilfering? This is an episode far shorter than it could have been, all about the collection of sounds which make up the lovely, thieving, sadomasochistic English language.
