Episode 33: An Homage to Kevin

We're meta now. A podcast talking about podcasts, who would've thunk it? Anyways we like podcasts and we've all learned a lot about podcasts since starting this adventure. We want to share that knowledge with you. This episode serves as a tribute to Kevin. He's not dead or anything he just likes the attention.


Episode 32: Fantasy Football

This week the BTTT gang abandoned Carter and Scott in their hour of need. So, they decided to play Dungeons and Dragons instead. Come listen to a tale of wild adventure; a tale with spying, inappropriate winking, and literally burning down a house. Carter's the dungeon master and Zharki's just along for the ride.


Episode 31: Viciously Murking Bugs

This week Kaitlyn buckles in as Ian and Diana bring their favorite spooky stories for Halloween, the most beloved of holidays in this fine autumn month. We're talking ghosts, we're talking creatures, we're talking all the good stories we grew up listening to and loving. List of stories: Bunnyman, Richmond Vampires, Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald, La Llorona, and the Female Stranger.


Episode 30: Theology of Sandwiches

Carter, the bravest member of the BTTT cast, braves flood waters and rising tides to bring you this most important episode of Brought to the Table. He daringly records during a thunderstorm threatening both his power and his internet just so you, our dear listener, can hear his hot takes on Fall and its many wonders. Scott and Kaitlyn are cowardly and do not have to brave the elements to record this episode.


Episode 29: Clickity Clack Keyboards

Scott and Carter are back again, this time talking about "My Chemical Cheeseboards," no wait, sorry I read that wrong, "Mechanical Keyboards." Kaitlyn is pleasantly surprised by how interesting it is. Leap through the screen and join us for a fun discussion of the history, tech, and applications of mechanical keyboards.


Episode 28: Hamiltonian Giraffes

Combing terrible graph theory jokes and music, this weeks cast presents on Hamilton. Scott and Diana ramble about music, theater stuff, and more (Ian tolerates half of it)! Tune in if you hate unnecessary modulations or want to know more about Giraffes.


Episode 27: Addiction Magnets

Hold on to your hats! This week Scott, Diana, and that one other guy unleash their rage about video game business models. Bought game you hate? Listen in to commiserate!


Episode 26: Come On Scoob

Let's talk about that good leaf water! Carter has been drinking a lot of tea recently because he stopped drinking coffee (idiot) so we talked about that hot leaf juice. How do you make it? Who decided that dirty leaves were a good idea to drink? What in the world is Kombucha? In what way do we blast Carter's mom? Find out this week on BTTT.


Episode 25: Violent Opinions about Ice Cream

We're all a little slaphappy today, friends. We have fun facts and controversial opinions about ice cream for our listening audience's delight and horror, respectively, as well as a few solid goofs. Please enjoy our first ever episode with a cliffhanger. Will we remember to follow through with it next week? Stay tuned to find out. Kaitlyn's audio is weirdly quiet in the second half, we do apologize for this. She was still freshly out of the moving van and perhaps should have waited another...


Episode 0: The Gaang is Back In Town

It's here. The very first episode that the BTTT crew ever recorded. Dug out from the Disney Vault. Don't know how it got in there but uhhh it's out now. We love Aang so much. So should you.


Episode 24: Authentic British

In this heated episode of Brought to the Table, Diana and Scott debate two modern retellings of the Sherlock Holmes stories: BBC's Sherlock and CBS's Elementary. Ian dings the bell between rounds before people get hurt.


Episode 23: The Grand Spy Convention

SPYFALL LOCATIONS AT THE BOTTOM This episode continues our trend of throwing caution to the wind and trying some wild stuff. This week Ian, Carter, and Scott give us a short intro on Hidden Role Games like Secret Hitler, Spyfall, and Werewolf. After a quick rundown of what these games are like, the whole BTTT crew tries their hand at playing one of them, Spyfall! Carter apologizes for his bad voices in advance. LOCATION LIST: Crusader Army, Police Station, Polar Station, Space Station,...


Episode 22: We Should Put a Game in There

This week we get another small group of people to bring you 2016's hit Zelda game: Breath of the Wild.

Take a listen to see if you'd like to finally buy this game that came out two years ago.


Episode 21: Cthulhu - A Light Projection

This week we take a dive into the world of Lovecraft, his creatures, and beyond. Names are mispronounced and stories of worlds beyond our imagining as humans are told all while Scott tries not to go crazy. This would be a great Halloween episode but we celebrate early.


Episode 20: More Shrek Trivia

This week's episode features a smaller cast! Carter and Scott ramble on about glitches in classic video games: what happened and what caused them. Kaitlyn tags along for the wild ride.


Episode 19: Soupy Pocket Ice Cream

This week we decided to mix it up and each do our own topic! (Well all of us except Ian, who is MIA). Diana breaks down a horror game for us & it's innovative narrative mechanics, Carter talks about his favorite summer time treat, Kaitlyn talks about a wild song by the man, the myth, the legend Trent Reznor, and Scott talks about some game I guess.


Episode 18: My 3 Foster Bees

Then, Ian and special guest Wendy team up to discuss Polyamory in the modern day. There's some good lessons to be learned about communication, regardless of your status! In both segments, I mean. Carly Rae taught me to be a better communicator with the absolute bop that is "Boy Problems." Scott hosts, Diana is...


Episode 16: I Know Nothing About Nature

Ian and Scott team back up again for another segment on robotics. Those two boys give us a good book learnin about how robots and other technologies are influenced by nature.

This is a long one.

We hit part 2 of our backpacks series! It is the final part of it! Kaitlyn takes us through her backpack in a really thoughtful way and then Scott just dumps his backpack on the table live on air. What a wild dude.
