It’s the place where we talk. About what? That depends on the week! Every show brings a new guest, and with them, a new topic to cover. And if there’s no guest, I’ll be going on by myself, speaking my thoughts and opinions on anything from gaming, dad stuff, and life in general. If you’re looking to talk, I know a place.

Talking to Myself about Solo Shows

4/26/2024
OH LOOK, A MIDLIFE CRISIS, RIGHT ON SCHEDULE Alright peeps! If I were crazy enough to do seasons on my podcast, I would say this is the beginning of a new one. After sitting on this feed for so long, and much hesitation and skepticism, I'm finally going to try my hand at publicly talking to myself lol. I get into the details in this episode, but look forward to bi-weekly shows from now on. Heck, maybe even weekly if I plan it right. No music so far, maybe I'll save it for the main show with guests. But for now, here's an intro for what I'm planning. Until next time!

Talking about Podcasting and Gaming with Cap'n Mike

4/12/2024
Invoking the right of parley with the Cap'n! After so many years of listening to each other's shows, our paths have finally crossed! Cap'n Mike has been the host of a handful of popular podcasts since the Xbox 360 era. And now, after a brief 2.5ish year retirement, he's back behind the mic! During the show we dig into how we're both old farts and have been in the podcast game for a long time. Talking about the way it has changed so much, how we have now adapted and changed compared to how we were when we started. We discuss a few gaming related topics too, in particular the Steam Deck and how it has become my savior. For all the info on Mike and where to find him and his podcast, check out all the links below! Until next time! Links and Info Discussed I don't think there were any links?! There were a few handheld gaming devices discussed but if those are things that interest you then I'm fairly certain you already know where to find them.

Talking about Book Subs & Discords with Sara

12/11/2023
It's not hoarding if it's pretty books! This is a show many months in the making! Turns out coordinating a podcast with someone in Australia is not as simple as you would think. But it finally worked out and here we are! I wanted to talk to Sara because she runs a fairly awesome bookish community that would've been wiped from existence if she didn't raise it from the ashes. And now, it's alive and thriving and about 200 people strong. In this episode, we're talking about monthly book subscription boxes, special edition books and how they appeal to the collectors in us, and of course, the discord that brings it all together.

Talking with Matt about Starfield on Xbox

9/1/2023
FOR ALL, INTO THE STARFIELD The time is finally upon us! After years of development and hype, fans of Bethesda Game Studios are getting their hands on Starfield! I sit down with Matt (Ve6a5, in Future Monkey lore) and talk about the excitement and expectations we have for the game! He also gives us his impressions on his first hour of play time, discussing space combat, character creation, and more! As of this episode, Starfield is live with early access that can be granted by purchasing an upgrade or a premium edition. You can play it on release day (September 6th) by purchasing a standard copy on Xbox or PC, or with day one access on Xbox Game Pass. Stay tuned to future episodes where I'll invite Matt back along with other guests and maybe even some voice mails where we'll follow up with our time spent in the game after a few weeks!

Talking with Al about Podcasting and VR

8/26/2023
Another show, another Al, part 2... or 3? It's been sooooo long, I figured it'll be cool to have Al on again. We talked a little about podcasting and what it's like to handle the technical stuff about recording. And after a sweet, sweet interlude, we got into some VR talk. The main focus was children and how they are not supposed to be using VR headsets. But are they? Who knows! Not me, but I may have some ideas here. Until next time!

Talking with Al about Life and Books

7/13/2023
Another show, another Al Look, I'm not going to gloat or make a big deal here, but this show is out EXACTLY when I said it would be out! And it's right on time with when my player said to expect my next episode. Sorry, this may seem like small potatoes to people but it's a big deal in my book! But enough about me, what is going on this week?! I had the pleasure of having Al back for another show! He is one half of The Retro 'Rents, and if you don't know him, the links are below. This episode we were both catching up with a lot of off time. Both his and my show were on hiatus' and we discussed the reasons behind that. How life has just been relentless with keeping us busy and away from the microphones. But if I had to choose a central theme for the show, it would be books. We got into the conversation about reading and it just went on from there. Lots of recommendations were given (and linked below) and I have zero regrets. It was a great time as always when chatting with Al and I'm glad he stuck around for another show. Which btw, I know I said in the intro I'm going to put together his episodes, but I back tracked on that and now you'll be getting two shows with Al instead of one. You're welcome! Until next time!

Talking to Myself About Books, Games, and Life

7/1/2023
NEW INTRO MUSIC, WHO DIS? Welcome to the unofficial beginning of season 2 lolol. I mean, it's dumb, but I feel like that's where I'm at here. New intro music, updated and ridiculously awesome art, it's like a breath of fresh air being blown in to get the *checks watch* nine months worth of dust off everything. NINE MONTHS! Nine freaking months since my last show. Almost to the day. I mean, technically, yeah, this CAN be considered the 31st of June if that were a thing. But it's not a thing. It's JULY 1st OMG it's almost Christmas!! Ok ok ok, I know, I know. Halloween is first, but whatever! ANYWAY. What's up, how ya been? That's good, that's good. Look, I know it's been a while so I got you a little somethin'. It's a NEW SHOW! YESSSSSsssSSsSss everyone so happy happy! No, I haven't lost it. I've been busy and going on little sleep for the past week so I think I'm feeling it now. But anyway, let's get to the actual show notes. Geeze, I hope you weren't really reading all of this mess. I'm sorry. Look, here's what I talked about in this episode. I went on about how much I absolutely adored Hogwarts Legacy. How it was enough to remind me why I loved gaming since I had taken another break from it. Then I got into The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom for the first time of many I'm sure. And peppered throughout all of that was life talk. What I've been doing and not doing. How I pretty much gave up social media, and some other stuff. There you go! You probably don't even have to listen to the show now, huh! Hahahahaha no that was a joke, please listen. Oh yeah! Coming down the line, you will definitely hear Al from the Retro Rents returning for an episode or two, so look forward to that! And I have a few others penciled in after so here's to trying to do this thing again! Until next time!

Talking with Ken about Living in Salem

THIS IS HALLOWEEN HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE! This episode is going to be all about Ken Turner!

We went on about how it is to live there throughout the year, the craziness of Halloween, and so much more! Fun bonus! Check out the links below and you'll find not only Ken on twitter, but also the brand new Delvin Cox Experience Halloween Specials!

Solo, round 2 Solo show numero 2 and I feel much more organized! Let it be known though, I recorded an entire OTHER show before I recorded this one. It was so all over the place and unorganized, I decided to ditch it and start over. I'm glad because it's amazing how much more focused you get when you write yourself a little plan to stick to. Organization. Who knew?! Things Discussed I talked numerous topics in the 30 minutes I allowed myself. I'm quite pleased, and you should be impressed if you know me! Anyway, here's a rundown in case you want to know what you're getting yourself into. Games - Pokémon Legends Arceus, Horizon Forbidden West, Animal Crossing, and LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga Books - (briefly talked about) The Humans by Matt Haig (Book | Audiobook), The Midnight Library also by Matt Haig (Book | Audiobook), and Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir (Book | Audiobook) Movies - Ron's Gone Wrong (Disney+), Encanto (Disney+), Free Guy (Disney+), and The Adam Project (Netflix) No. I don't believe that I talked about all this stuff either!

11/7/2021
It's Not My Ffff I've been having this itch to record something, but at the same time, I didn't really want to commit to a date with someone. And so, my first solo show is born! Will there be more? Maybe. Only time, and my laziness, will tell. I went on about a few things I've been meaning to talk about. And I feel like it would've been a much greater discussion with...myself... If I would have planned it out better. I rambled a few times, but I had fun editing so it should be an interesting listen. Next time I do this I'll definitely have more of a plan, and maybe, just maybe, a little more confidence. Things Discussed While talking to myself I went off course a tad. But I think I stuck to the main thing I wanted to bring up. Gaming has been a part of me for a very, very long time. I always want to make time for it, I always get excited for advances in the industry, I still love the hobby and don't plan on quitting. Buuuuut, that doesn't mean I have to always be excited about stuff. I went on talking about my struggles with finding time to game, and when I do find the time, how hard it is to be excited for new games these days. This is a subject I KNOW I'll bring up again. And I look forward to being much more prepared next time Music Heard Artist: Mikel (Twitter, Instagram, YouTube) Song: Ocarina of Time Album: Zelda and Chill Mikel is a wizard with his beats, bringing the music from some of our beloved games to a whole new level (haha!

Other Stuff to Do After a needed mini mental break, I'm finally mustering the strength to get this show posted. Ridiculously huge apologies to Elaine! I feel horrible, I do. But trying to move forward, let's keep going. Episode 11, if you never heard it, was probably one of my favorite shows I've ever recorded. I'm so happy to have had Elaine on these back to back shows. If you can recall, we discussed a few very real topics. It felt as if it took a toll after the conversation, so episode 12 was great to chase it with as it's much more laid back. We talked about fun stuff. I tried to not discuss gaming as that's our go-to hobby that many already know about. I wanted to focus instead on other things we enjoy doing. We talked about books, what we' enjoy reading, what we're reading now, all that jazz. Also got into our favorite T.V. shows and discussed what we love so much about them. Then we got into snacks! The most important subject as far as Elaine goes, and for good reason. Tune in to find out why!

Today's Positive: An awesome show Hear ye, hear ye, hear ye! On this, the 3rd day of February. Elaine, etdragon, OG, pioneer of pioneers, originator of originators, was awakened at sunset from her trash panda haven, and spoke to me in Elainese and said: I will join you on your show! So here we are! Still in Groundhog Day mode like we wear top hats, this is episode 11 and I'm joined by Elaine! We went over a ton of topics ranging from kids and the absolute joys of parenting them, how it was putting out podcasts waaaaaaay back before the internet was invented, and going through gaming fatigue. But most of all, what I think is the main focus, is our talk about mental health. We got into a deep conversation that led down many paths. Discussions about why finding the positive of a day is important, and what led to an alcohol free life. This episode was real, candid, and meaningful. I'm super happy to have had Elaine on and we both hope the show is heard on the many levels it was broadcasted on.

Who You Gonna Call? Not the Turtles! TEN EPISODES! Isn't that amazing! At double digits now! It's probably ok to retire now, right? Call it quits after hitting this milestone. Well, for this episode it's a nostalgic trip to our childhood, as Al and myself go back to the 80's and 90's to talk cartoons! So many different shows defined many a childhood growing up. It would be nearly impossible to mention them all, or even give most of them justice. Especially after talking about The Real Ghostbusters so much LOL. We could've gone on for 5 hours and still left out the favorites of many. So come to think of it, I hope this show doesn't make anyone mad that we didn't mention their favorite cartoon growing up.

1/20/2021
Survey Says! Two shows in a row! One more, and it'll probably be some sort of record for me. Also a record, is the amount of shows done by two guys who quit their last show because they could never get together to record. (That's us!) Yup, Beardy and I are here another week and we're back to our old gaming antics. But we're not discussing current trends and the new hotness. No, we're going back over the past 7 years and talking about the best games and experiences of the last generation. PS4 and Xbox One gave us some of the most memorable games of all time. So it's only right to go over them. And, apparently, I was bored enough one day to put together a census on the last gen of games. It was extensive, it was detailed, and it was probably looked at for 5 seconds and closed by many. But a few kind souls spread out through a couple of different communities took the time to fill it out! So what stood out? Let's see.

It's a full-of-surprises kind of experience where one minute you can be greeted with a hug, and five minutes later you're staring down the barrel of a nerf gun listening to the demands of a terrorist. Good times! Speaking of terrorists, the U.S. Capitol was sieged last week. And while I typically stay far away from such topics, we couldn't resist touching on this historic event. We shared our thoughts and we both felt like we held back from being more blunt. But bottom line is nothing positive or any understanding reasoning can be taken from the events of that day. Anyway, topics got away from us and it turned into a 1.5 hour show. Who knew! Hope you enjoy and stay safe till next week.

007 | The Great Christmas Call-in w/ Beardy

12/22/2020
Christmas Call-in Spectacular Ok, fine, "spectacular" isn't exactly the right word, but let's not dwell on that! Let's dwell on the fact that it's been about 5 months since the last show! .....No, you know what, let's not dwell on that either. Ok, here, dwell on 2020 coming to a close! There you go, something positive. And personally, with so much craziness that happened in 2020, and so so so much happening since the last show, let's just say I'm happy to start the new year on a new foot. Beardy promised weeks ago to do this show and tried to back out of it until I showed him proof of his commitment. Then in the Christmas spirit I decided to do a live show and that's how we got these two awesome guests! Thanks to Strip Mahjong, longtime member and supporter of the Future Monkeys community, and thanks to Al, host of the Retro Rents Podcast!! Together with Beardy - former co-host, retired, and said to never do another show again only to come back and co-host 90% of my shows here - we talked about Christmas, the positive things that we got out of 2020, games we're playing, and all that good stuff!
