We’re back from an unintentional hiatus, and have finally finished with the craziness of PAX and Steven’s month-long journey through Europe (not to be confused with Megan’s Journey Through Europe). While Steven is already off exploring other conventions that we don’t get time to talk about this episode, we’re able to cover baby showers, Sushi Dice, Fax Machine / Telephone Pictionary / Telestrations, and Megan: the Charmin Charmer.
In this episode of Swag Tier, Megan relives a painful massage “therapy” experience where her masseur more or less broke her body, Steven tells the tale of his bus breaking down on the way to Maryland for MAGFest, and unbeknownst to our listeners who don’t read our episode descriptions, Megan accidentally deleted the audio for the last episode of Swag Tier when she uploaded the audio for this episode. Other topics include Megan’s plans to (never) finish her Mamamoo fanfiction and Steven’s plans to volunteer at MAGFest 2017.
In this Pokemon-heavy episode of Swag Tier, Megan tells listeners about a bath bomb experience gone wrong, and Steven recaps a confrontational speed dating experience he had at New York Comic Con. They also prove that their college degrees were not wasted dollars by doing math both correctly AND quickly for the first time on air.
These are two things I never thought Megan would have enjoyed. But I guess you never really know someone until you bring them onto Swag Tier. Case in point, these photos!
This week on Swag Tier, Megan and Steven decide to change things up a bit and play a little game called Mad Libs. Join them in their adventure to hear about:
- some of Megan’s childhood memories;
- Steven’s bathroom pro-tip for pooping in style in public;
- a glowing recommendation for Wizard People, Dear Reader;
- Steven’s first (and hopefully not last) profanity slip up.
Find Mad Libs from this episode:
From a bizarre Canadian ski trip, to a seemingly widespread distaste for people who haven’t seen the Disney movie Hocus Pocus, to a ridiculous Google search that somehow still yielded the desired results, to discussing old school RPG’s, this episode is packed full of stories, nostalgia, and inside jokes! Tune in to also hear about:
- Megan’s latest kpop performance at the 2016 Korus Festival;
- Megan almost crapping her pants about the factual accuracy of Disney properties;
- an executive summary of the Disney Channel Original Movie, How to Build a Better Boy;
- and Steven’s latest obsession with the free to play trading card/tactics game, Duelyst – be sure to check out Jumbo Bundle 7 from Humble Bundle for 20 free card packs (a $30 value!), and use Steven’s username as a referral: thisrandomguy
This week, we’re joined by Dave Rottino from Rated G for Gamers, the podcast that Steven guest starred on last month. We had plans to chat about how Dave has been going to PAX for years just like we have, but in true Swag Tier fashion, we throw all that out the window to embrace the natural banter and flow of friends catching up with one another.
In the latest episode of Swag Tier, Steven recaps his adventures at the 2016 Boston Festival of Indie Games, otherwise known as Boston FIG. Tune in to hear about:
- Steven’s top 5 Boston FIG games, Sad Hill Cemetery, Stage Fright, Insane Traffic, Ten Candles, and Clean Up Your Room!;
- Megan’s mom’s terrible driving;
- the origin of last episode’s big debate, “easy as pie;”
- and Megan’s (crazy) neighbor’s passive aggressive attempts to get her to clean her messy house.
Megan and Steven discuss the intricate differences between baking and broiling (read: we actually have no idea what we’re talking about). Tune in to also hear about:
- Steven’s pride in recognizing a kpop song played in public (twice!);
- Megan’s hope to establish the Kpop Killers, a Kpop Academy Overwatch group;
- better than mediocre recommendations for two great indie games, Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime and Blade Ballet;
- Megan’s money woes, which she plans to solve by suing an ex-girlfriend.
Steven participated in his first open mic ever, getting up in the middle of monologues, songs, and standup performances to run a short storytelling experience based on an indie RPG called Dread. While traditional tabletop roleplaying games have you roll dice to overcome challenges, players in Dread pull blocks from a Jenga tower. Listen in to hear how it went! We close out with our first fan art request…
