I jawed with White Sox fan Bill Meincke in this super fun meeting of two baseball minds. I hope we didn't get TOO inside baseball (oh... that's what that means...) to preventthis conversation from being enjoyable for non-fans, but honestly I loved it so much and think everyone can. We really delved into what makes this game mean so much to us, and we share some really vulnerable baseball nerdiness.

Last month, founding Nerdologues member Alex Talavera left us to go be an adult in Colorado. LAME. On Your Stories, he's saying goodbye with an episode he helped put together - Alex picked the theme, hosted, chose the songs, and generally lended his awesome presence throughout the episode. Help say goodbye to a Your Stories favorite.

Don your sleeveless shirts and tie your bandannas, folks, because this MBSing has a dress code.  I sat down with my friend and fellow Nerdologues member Eric Garneau (and his sweet doggie AC) to chat about his musical hero, Bruce Springsteen. Eric has actually written a scholarly paper and been to a symposium about The Boss (both of which I'd think are MBSing guest firsts).

If you're an ardent listener of this podcast, you may be wondering where the latest Your Stories episode is. "It's September 1st," you are saying to me, hypothetical person - "Make with the funny!"

Wherein I sat down with my dear friend and (former) fellow member of The Nerdologues, Alex Talavera. I've never seen No Reservations, but I want to start after hearing Alex talk about it for a little under an hour (even though it seems like most of what Alex gets from the show is rage jealousy).

Hoo boy oh boy, episode 37! Today we're talking with Kevin Horst (IO's Trolley, Ben-Hur) about some of the best and worst examples of morality systems in gaming, and Clayton's shoes make weird noises. Enjoy!

This week I sat down with a real life Billy Shakes! I also made the dumbest joke I could've possibly made (you just read it... it's that Billy Shakes thing). This episode is truly wonderful. Stephanie shares how she came to write and publish numerous plays that have been produced all over the country and touches on how her Cuban heritage has been an inspiration for her throughout her life. Play on!

Here's the second and final episode we recorded at Chicago's excellent Cat & Mouse Game Store, and just like last time we're back talking about all things game-related.

Lauren in the house for a good times episode about her favorite TV show, Veronica Mars. I hope you all enjoy me not being able to grasp some simple concepts about the show as Lauren explains them.
