Constantly Calibrating Podcast (Gaming & Geek Culture)

After many years and countless eons of discussion, finally the time hath come for us to have Lauren Walsh, druid artist from the stars, on the Constantly Calibrating Podcast. Our team has known Lauren for arguably longer than there has been a podcast, but the timing of appearances was just never right. We also forgot to actually ask her at any point, which may have been a major deciding factor. But never fear, for Lauren Walsh made her triumphant appearance from within her glorious, and oddly witch-like studio. 

So, with that in mind, allow us to entertain you with tales of her friendship with Brad & Ryan, stories of getting into the World of Warcraft, a journey into discovering that art school is crap and learning to art is best done on your own, and some flowing thoughts on the fact that you should frelling pay artists for their frelling work!!

That being said, it's a good show. It's a lovely show. It's a show you an take home to your parents when you're ready to settle down. We'll be here, waiting for you.

With Justin still sidelined from the podcast, the team was in search of someone to help out on the show. Then, as if the Internet just knew, Cutwright was deposited before them. The man of legend and recent Twitch Affiliate messaged Josh one night with a proposal, a simple proposal: "Hey, when am I coming on the podcast again?"

This is that podcast, and this is that episode.An episode wherein the team mostly just carried over leftover topics from the week before. 

Of course, this worked to everyone's benefit, as what better person to discuss being a Twitch Affiliate with, than a person who recently achieved that status. Furthermore, there's nothing like discussing the therapeutic nature of Dungeons & Dragons -- and similar RPG-styled games -- than with someone who apparently secretly studied psychology once upon a time.

All of this, plus some shameless and shameful self-promotion on what critics are calling "the best episode of Constantly Calibrating this season."*

Join us, you'll like it.



*This its technically true, as Josh & Ryan are both critics and Brad is very critical.

We've all had those embarrassing gaming moments. You're playing a game for hours on end, and suddenly you do something really stupid, then boom, embarrassment. Or maybe, just maybe something out of the ordinary happens without your input. Perhaps you inexplicably pop an erection while playing Rampage World Tour on the N64 when you're 12 years old. Hey, we've all be there, and it's nothing to be ashamed about; you were young and your body was confused due to hormones.

There's nothing to be ashamed about, which is why we've gathered you all here for our embarrassing gaming moments show. Perhaps this is the first time we're doing this, or perhaps we're 224 episodes in and have lost grip on reality. Whatever the case may be, we're here to commiserate with you on the moments of embarrassment we all face in gaming.

So, join us for a fun-filled episode; one with minimal toddler interruptions. Don't worry, it's not all embarrassing, as members of our team look at the new Nintendo 2DS XL and try to figure out why it exists. There's also plenty of other disparate and random topics, plus a wee bit of betting on the side.
