We finished talked about a convention less than a month after it happened! That must be some kind of record for us. We had a lot of fun at PAX East, even if we had about divergent experiences. Tune in to learn about the barrage of panels that Steven went to, and which ones really stood out!
Join Megan and Steven as Megan recounts a recent visit to Caitlin’s mom’s house that almost ended in a trip to the emergency vet, and Steven gives us the lowdown on his PAX South 2017 volunteering schedule. Other topics include:
- which team Caitlin’s family would be if they were in a Pokemon game;
- Megan’s hopes and dreams that Nexon’s unannounced MOBA title will turn out to be League of Kpop;
- and an executive summary of an old Gawker article about an unfortunate calamari-eating experience.
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.
Yes, we released episodes precisely on New Year’s and Christmas. No, we didn’t talk about either occasion on their respective episodes. Yes, we’re covering Christmas topics on New Year’s. No, we didn’t even finish talking about everything we planned to. Yes, this is precisely how Swag Tier operates.
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.
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…
