Constantly Calibrating Podcast (Gaming & Geek Culture) (general)

After a few weeks off the "air" we're back with a brand new episode, as well as a brand new host for the show: Thaddeus "Thad" Adams!

This episode is heavily based in news, from CW shows being renewed, to thoughts on VR, and early E3 predictions. Just also has some woes and misbegotten thoughts regarding being social media manager for Constantly Calibrating.

Brad also goes Black Desert Online happy, as one does from time to time.

That plus some mindless grieving, and an attempt to fill this description box up with as many words as possible, on another brand new episode of Constantly Calibrating.

For this week's show we're down to only two hosts, as Brad and Josh take on the idea of having a personal gaming narrative. For Josh it started with the realization of what playing XCOM 2 was doing to his mind, then spilled off into this topic. They cover fan fictions, immersion, and how a personal gaming narrative can build the bridge between people to truly enjoy gaming for what it is.

As the year 2015 came to a close, our team looked back on what they had accomplished and what events (both literal and figurative) had the most impact on them. Well, the entire team would've if Brian hadn't been lost in time and Justin hadn't misplaced some of his teeth. That being said, even down two men, Brad and Josh managed to pull themselves together for a heartfelt first time in a hundred episodes duo session of Constantly Calibrating.

It was poignant. It was moving. It was the year of our Lord Garrus' 2015th year...in review.
