Bonus Episode – James and the Giant B-Movie

“There’s nothing wrong with being Jewish…”

In this potpurri episode, we talk about computer games, and special guest James tells us about the SyFy original movie Decoys, the greatest movie of all time.*

* for very specific definitions of “greatest movie of all time”

Also, an important announcement:

The producer formerly known as Dave is transgender and is now about three months into the process of a gender transition. You may have already seen her (online) as Dana; she expects to go full-time IRL sometime in the latter half of this year.  Be prepared for some changes over the course of the summer and fall, but be assured that (other than an occasional delay caused by a necessary medical procedure) this should have very little impact on the podcast.

If you’re not familiar with transgender issues, we recommend the following resources from GLAAD:

IPMM 30: The Eternal Dr. Wurmple

“In which we discuss some things that were relevant about a month ago, and some things that were relevant years ago.”

In this remarkably focused discussion, we talk about our formative years playing video games, and specifically, about the games which captured us for marathon play sessions.

This is bracketed by a couple of rants by Dave (one of which he gets to put his game dev hat back on for) and the story of possibly one of the longest-lived Pokemon of all time.

IPMM 13: Strong Female Characters

“You can play as Ophelia, but then it’s a pretty short book.”

Yanni mentions a fun kickstarter campaign. Dave goes on a feminist rant. Then we discuss good female characters in media and what makes a good character. Finally, Yanni brings up same-sex marriage and ultimately wins the evening.

Note: the cast of the cast is 100% supportive of LGBT rights and equality. Even when the context is humorous we take these issues very seriously, as they affect us and many people we care about.

Show notes – we got some stuff wrong; I’ve noted where below:
