Constantly Calibrating Podcast (Gaming & Geek Culture)

When trying to stand out in a oversaturated marketplace, the only thing sometimes separating one person's (or company's) product from another is hype. The question is, when does hyping something up betray the product/media at hand?

This is the question we hope to discuss and maybe shed light on for this week's episode of Constantly Calibrating.

Also, some news on the Ant-Man film, Daredevil on Netflix, Nintendo's next dick move, and...suspended animation being a reality.

On today's episode we were joined by Nichole Nance (Itty Bitty Geek) to try and answer the question "Is lack of gender choice a legitimate reason to not play a game?"

Let us know your own thoughts in whatever comment area you find this podcast.

Our dynamic trio is back together again after a series of vacations & other shenanigans. This week, Josh, Brad, & Justin look at some recent news before moving onto our main topic: Star Wars.

This past weekend was Star Wars Day (or May the 4th) and Josh felt it was time to come clean on his hatred of this yearly event. Beyond that, we talk about the death of the old expanded universe in Star Wars and where we hope it goes to now, plus ideas about the recent casting announcements for Episode VII.

Check it out, as this is probably the best episode we've put out to date!
