ЯMP – Ep 100: Release Candidate (with @acedtect and @scottjohnson)

Tom Merritt (@acedtect) and Scott Johnson (@scottjohnson) stop by to pull us out of beta…

maybe.

Show notes:

  • Cubs won, Amos and Scott survived, and Tom managed to relax
  • Does Sean Bean finish the Civilization VI narration
  • Scott is a TSA aficionado while Tom found convenience in a hybrid tablet
  • Scott has WestWorld theories
  • Amos researched colleges while Kent explored the new DCTV iOS app
  • TED Talks:
  • We discuss the difficulties of podcasting, the decision to do it full-time, and how even a single-mic show isn’t a single-person effort
  • POP QUIZ
  • Feedback: Ken Ammi reviewed episode b45: “Throw away show” – “Sad that this is such a typical podcast: 90% is like overhearing potty mouthed people chatting (making me think why I am listening to this) and 5% something in the news and 5% vague discussion about the news item. Utter waste of time.”
  • Tom and Scott decide our eligibility for full release
  • Nerdtacular 2017 will occur June 29, 30 and July 1 2017 at the Snowbird Resort in Salt Lake City, Utah

Next Week: Patrick Beja (@notpatrick) of frenchspin.com

RMP – Ep b50: Shadows of the Steve Perry Empire

We invite Steve Perry to chat with us…

…the author, not the ‘rock’ star.

One of the most under acknowledged and versatile writers around, Steve has us rolling through his tales of ghost writing, meeting Leonard Nimoy, and his first ever death threat (it’s a thing, apparently). Also, body-building sex slaves.

RMP – Ep b30: Hectic Hoosiers Hating Homosexuals

The Hoosier state…

…as in “Hoosier money on, Indiana or common sense?”

A couple weeks ago we talked about how it was getting easier to be a gay Christian. Apparently our home state of Indiana didn’t get that memo.

Show notes:

– This week we are joined by Jonathan Oshier for some Indiana resident’s perspective on SB 568 Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA)

– Kent is still retiring and Amos is still PCSing

– Leonard Nimoy’s quotes in CivIV (Skip to 1:56 for the bureaucracy quote)

– Kent brewed beer using the Brooklyn Brew Shop Beer Making Kit, Everyday IPA and watched Wrestlemania

– TED Talks:

– Amos didn’t watch one because he’s a lazy slacker

– Kent watched Jane McGonigal: Massively multi-player… thumb-wrestling?

– Sodas made with sugar taste better and may be less unhealthy (SciShow & DNews)

– Indiana is the latest state attempting to use religion as a way to hold bias against groups of people

– Read the law here and the ACLU protest here

– All technical difficulties during the production of this episode are Kent‘s fault

RMP – Ep b26: LLAP, You Crazy Ass Internet

The Internet went nutzo this week…

…and Amos was too snowed in to notice.

Yeah, these Texas blizzards are seriously cutting in to my tech time.

Show notes:

– Texas weather is dumb.

– It’s Mustache March and Kent is taking part…Amos is not

– SrA Sienna Benton of Dyess AFB Outbound Assignments section is awesome

– Kent’s TED talk: Michael Rubinstein: See invisible motion, hear silent sounds

– Amos’ TED talk: Taylor Wilson: Yup, I built a nuclear fusion reactor

– The Internet couldn’t stand the one-two punch of Llama Drama and the Dress Mess on February 26th

– We miss Winamp‘s heyday and the Winamp goat

– Also, the U.S. Government may actually be doing something to help the public interest (but we doubt it)

– D&D fans should experience the open-source based Roll20

– And if you’d like to expand your knowledge of the universe, take some time to read some of Stephen Hawking‘s works

– The passing of Leonard Nimoy (Star Trek’s Spock) marks the loss of a wonderful talent; LLAP

– A few of our fondest Leonard Nimoy memories: Audi commercial, The Lazy Song (Alternate Video), and Leonard Nimoy – The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins

– Speaking of Star Trek stars, George Takei has an amazing story which he shared on Penn Jillette’s Sunday School podcast Episode 37 – George Takei: It’s Ok To Be Takei

– If you’re going to attend SXSW, find us (buy us a beer!)

– We’ll definitely be at SXSoWasted

SXSW for non-badge-holding fools (like us): Unofficial Guide to South By Southwest 2015
