    Balloonacy

    Balloonacy

    Ned and Meg discuss the sordid history of hot air ballooning. When did it start and will it ever end? Seriously, hot air ballooning is stupid-dangerous, so if you never take anything else away from this weird podcast, know that you should absolutely never go for a hot air balloon ride, ever, for any reason. Don’t say we didn’t warn you. Thanks for listening, wash your hands, avoid hot air balloons, and don’t be a dick.

    The Legend of Zelda, Greatest Game Ever?

    The Legend of Zelda, Greatest Game Ever?

    Ned and Meg chat about the Legend of Zelda, which we think is basically the greatest game ever made, and we spend around 80 minutes telling you why! This game, or well these 19 games if you’re counting, feature some of the best design elements of any game and ones that translate so well you can find the 19 Zelda games spread out over at least nine different consoles. This game is so well designed with so many interesting and challenging features, it basically has something for everyone. We discuss the layout, plot, characters, modes of transport, and timelines of the games plus some of the secrets to be discovered. Thanks for listening and reminiscing with us about stories from our childhood AND our adulthood. Wash your hands, don’t be a dick, do something nice for someone.

    Bookgate, a Scandalous Book about Gates

    Bookgate, a Scandalous Book about Gates

    Ned and Meg discuss a very esoteric idea for a book, which is the sort of thing you do when you have many ISBN numbers awaiting assignment. The book would be a compendium of scandalous stories, or -gates, which are accompanied by photos of actual gates related to the scandal. Weird, right? We don’t know. But it’s Bookgate, and we thank you for listening! Wash your hands, don’t be a dick, share with others.

    The Deep End

    The Deep End

    Ned and Meg chat about The Sims while Ned’s in Germany, which ties into a conversation about some dogs, some rabbits, the nature of sentience and concepts of harm. The discussion of the Sims leads us to talking about governance and potentially bad ideas involving an earthen berm. We round out with a determination to do another episode about the importance of considering the context. As always, thank you for listening to our meandering conversation, wash your hands, don’t be a dick.

    Which Troops to Support in the War on Xmas, 2023 Edition

    Which Troops to Support in the War on Xmas, 2023 Edition

    Ned and Meg revisit their annual tradition of asking no one in particular whose troops we should support in the war on xmas. This year we discuss how Target is targeting your kids for targeted indoctrination with targets. Or, gay nutcrackers. It’s hard to say. Just think of the children. We also take a stab at people who pose, dangerously we may add, with high powered firearms in photos celebrating the co-opted birth of Jesus, a man who would probably faint at the sight of painted wood, since we’re told he was a woodworker of sorts.

    Billy Wobble Pitchfork and His Lesser Known Short Form Sketch Comedy

    Billy Wobble Pitchfork and His Lesser Known Short Form Sketch Comedy

    Ned and Meg talk about William Shakespeare. Was he a lone wolf? Or was he an old timey Banksy, an art genius at the helm of an art cabal? Maybe he was both or neither. We are not Shakespeare experts. Meg also tells Ned about a harrowing visit to the Stratford Upon Avon home of William Shakespeare, if that even is his real name. Thanks for listening, wash your hands, don’t be a dick, read Shakespeare.

Liminality

I typed “liminality” into the app search and came across this podcast. I think I love podcasts so much because so many that I listen to bring about liminal state! This episode has just changed my life - working with liminal states is so intriguing and I think may be exactly what I needed. Also, can we just note that the this episode was posted days before we entered an almost two year, and counting, global liminal state brought on by covid?!
