Bonus Twbd Sept 2020

We talk about one of the more fun wow bugs lately. The long deleted are coming back to haunt some players. Barbershops and character creation got interesting, and gone is the Appearance Change charges. No more bonus rolls, and we think that's pretty great. Are you at all excited about BlizzConline? We think the name is dumb but we are excited anyway. We go deep into the new Morhaime venture, Dreamhaven, and what it might mean for you as players of the kinds of games they are likely to build.
Late last year, we designed Threatcast 2020: a brainstorming game for groups of people trying to predict the new, innovative, and worrying forms of misinformation and disinformation that might come into play in the upcoming election. We ran a few in-person sessions before the pandemic hit and ended our plans for more, then last month we moved it online with the help of the fun interactive event platform Remo. We've learned a lot and hit on some disturbingly real-feeling predictions throughout these events, so this week we're joined by our partner in designing the game — Randy Lubin of Leveraged Play — to discuss our experiences "threatcasting" the 2020 election, and our plans to keep doing it. We really want to run more of these online events for new groups, so if that's something you or your organization might be interested in, please get in touch!
Our guest this week is Joshua Schachter. Joshua is the founder of del.icio.us and inventor of tagging, which became hashtags. Joshua has founded two startups, invests in startups, runs an event for autonomous racing called Self Racing Cars, and is an amateur race car driver.

BOOP 258: Electro Metal Magic
We had a relatively nice time with video games this week. Games we played this week include: Fall Guys (10:30), Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1+2 (16:00), Paradise Killer (21:20), Kingdoms of Amalur Re-Reckoning (32:45), The Last Campfire (39:55), and Spinch (42:45).
TWO new Afterlives shorts to talk about, and wrap our heads around. We do just that. Plus, new music and login screen data-mined and we really quite like what we see and hear. Blizzard is taking a LOT of stuff off the global cool-down, and your favorite class might just be rejoicing. Torghast got less tutorials, and more rubber on the road in the latest update. How Blizz wants to limit the "burden of regret" when it comes to Covenant choices, and how you will have to atone if you come back. Rapid Fire Questions, and emails and more!

Kinder and Edanar are joined by Geo to discuss the latest Dropping Spicy Tournament results! (Kurabara is out sick this week, unfortunately) We congratulate the winners, and the MVP of the tourney, and tell a bit about our personal tournament experiences. Then we sink our teeth in what is perhaps the single worst Apex Legends weapons tier list we've ever seen! Join us, as we put out some of the hottest takes in all of podcasting, make fun of Ed's vernacular, and attempt to keep the show from going completely off the rails!
In this episode of Talk Nerdy, Cara is joined by Mara Hvistendahl, Pulitzer Prize finalist, investigative reporter for the Intercept, and author of “The Scientist and the Spy: A True Story of China, the FBI, and Industrial Espionage.” Mara tells the thrilling story of a Chinese company’s conspiracy to steal trade secrets from Monsanto and DuPont Pioneer as well as the ethical dangers of America’s counterintelligence efforts.
User freedom, consent & rights.
What are the rights users have when using technology built by big tech? Doc Searls and Dan Lynch talk with Molly De Blanc and Karen Sandler, and discuss their Declaration of Digital Autonomy. The declaration was created to build awareness and ideally change people's rights and freedoms when it comes to technology. They talk about what needs to change to make technology serve the individual and not the companies who intend to monetize its use. Individuals don't understand the contract they have with their technology and that is why this declaration is so important. De Blanc and Sandler invite listeners to email their ideas to [email protected] to continue this conversation on digital autonomy.
