Episode 64 – Kicking off Season 2

It’s been over two years since our last episode, but Swag Tier still has some life in it! Thanks to everyone who showed their appreciation for the podcast during our hiatus. It’s a delight to be back.

Episode 63 – Burrito Dealbreakers

We’re back! Our audio quality isn’t great as we’re even more remote than normal, but this is the episode is crucial to understanding Megan’s fanaticism around condiments. We also talk about California and the game Startups, but no es el tema principal aquí.

Episode 62 – Things that make you squirm

In this episode of Swag Tier, Megan and Steven somehow manage to spend almost an entire half hour talking about bugs.  And not even software bugs!  Literally, creepy/crawly/scuttle-y bugs.  Tune in to hear about silverfish gangs, bug-squashings gone wrong, and a unique approach to ignoring a colony of ants in your apartment.

Episode 61 – Unemployment Benefits

It’s not news that Megan and I are between jobs, but this is the first time we’ve discussed how it affects us. Which is to say, how it increased my enthusiasm for volunteering and coaching Overwatch!

Episode 60 – Tootin’ All Day

While we do talk about the Nintendo Switch, Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Easter traditions during this episode, the clear highlight is the off-the-cuff mention, explanation, and subsequent rendition of Megan’s childhood jingle: Tootin’ All Day: The Burger King Song. Leave a comment and we’ll send you the mp3.

Episode 59 – Swag Tier’s stamp of approval for Interphex

In this episode of Swag Tier, Steven talks about non-gaming conventions he has attended at Megan’s favorite convention center, the Jacob Javits Center.  Tune in to hear how Steven manages to learn about biomedical and pharmaceutical manufacturing, eat freshly baked cookies, and win contests all in one day!

INTERPHEX, the premier pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device development and manufacturing event where you can “Experience Science through Commercialization”.

New York Build Expo, the leading construction & design expo to focus exclusively on projects across New York City.

Episode 58 – The Easter Bunny Brings All the Dogs to the Yard

At last, the episode you’ve all been waiting for – Swag Tier finally brings you a full length feature about Final Fantasy Explorers.  Ok, it’s not really a “full length” feature unless you define full length as approximately 10 minutes, but that’s still one third of a 30 minute episode, which is a lot of air time for a game that is over one year old.  Other topics include:

  • the massive task of cleaning Megan’s closet;
  • the relationship between game difficulty and playability in various games;
  • and Frizbee’s first (and for her sake, hopefully last) encounter with the Easter Bunny.
