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.

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.
