Episode: W3.E13 :: Who, What, Why with Ignacy Trzewiczek ( 7.93 MB / 8:40)

Who, What, Why presents our thirteenth episode of Designing Games with Game Designers which features Ignacy Trzewiczek, designer of Robinson Crusoe, Imperial Settlers, and owner of Portal Games. In this episode we use the themes, components, and mechanics found on the cards in Unpub, the card game from Doug Levandowski and J.R. Honeycut. Jason and Charles' three themes and mechanics were nautical, podcasting, space, dice rolling, trick taking, drawing.

The rules of this segment have changed considering the switch to the Unpub card game. At this time, we provide some themes and mechanics and have to come up with a semi-plausible game.

Alex and I participate in the discussion, so it is a collaborative venture. I hope you enjoy!

Episode: Ep 026 – Star Wars Talk: Kylo Ren ( 49.9 MB / 53:46)

In this rather hilarious episode, Mark and Sten sit down to talk about everyone's favorite new Star Wars baddie, Kylo Ren.  Of course as we all know, he tried desperately to learn about his fellow First Order crew when he agreed to appear on Undercover Boss.  He went undercover as Matt the Radar Technician and learned a few things about what it means to be a cog in the machine.  As he said near the end of the episode, "Everyone is going to love the new me."

In this episode, the guys start off with some discussion of Episode VIII news before delving into speculation and predictions for the upcoming movies, including the Han Solo origin movie.  They revisit Rey's character arc a bit and further discuss her parentage, discuss an Episode IV theory about Luke's aunt and uncle, and Clone Trooper talk.

Eventually the guys get into the topic of the episode, Kylo Ren.  This includes all the newest plausible theories, the things we currently know, and where this character arc will take him.

We hope you enjoy this episode as much as we did making it.  As a reminder, this is a monthly podcast show devoted entirely to Star Wars.  Next month we will discuss Finn.  Beyond that our topic for future Star Wars related podcasts are wide open.  If you have anything in particular you'd like us to research and discuss, feel free to let us know either in the comments below or through our contact information for the site.

Don't forget to check us out on Facebook and Twitter where we have the latest updates and links to shows and articles from the I, Geek team.  We're also still hard at work uploading our Top 100 NES Games of All Time videos on YouTube.  Don't forget to stop by and check those out.

Its a new year! And we're late of course. Yes in the usual timely and zip zippity speed in which we like to do these things, here is the fashionably late 2015 look back and what's cooking in 2016 discussion. We discuss favourite moments of gaming in 2015, the games we enjoyed the most and ponder the squabbling and silliness that we indulged in while at the gaming table this year. Portalcon and what's with this new Portal logo?? Mike continues serenading his love for all things Blood Rage and Nate doesn't get it as it has mini's in it and HE DOES NOT LIKE MINI'S. And we discuss AP (Analysis Paulalysis) in our groups and whether its a good thing or not. And around another 30mins of drivel gold.

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider all of the anime we watched a non-trivial number of episodes of before just... stopping. As we plan to do with Attack on Titan whenever it starts up again. From .hack to Naruto, Kaze no Yojimbo to Ergo Proxy. It's one thing to drop a show after one episode, but after 10? 20? What drives someone to just drop a show midway?

In other news, The Boy and the Beast is premiering in the US, the New York International Children's Film Festival has an amazing animation lineup this year, Over the Garden Wall is amazing, Katsucon this weekend has one of the worst panel policies of all fan conventions, and we'll be performing at MAGFest next weekend!

Episode: The Hollow & History in Film with Miles Doleac - Geekline415 ( 51.53 MB / 56:16)

We've all had the opportunity to see one of these movies that portrays itself as a film based or steeped in historical bona-fides.  But are they as accurate as one would hope, or expect?  Tonight the geeks were joined by Professor, Director, Actor, and Producer Miles Doleac and we're discussing his current works, one of our recent favorites: The Historian and one of his upcoming films: The Hollow.

Who really IS Miles Doleac?
With his unique perspective, as an actor peering into and living in academia, and an academic  doing the same with acting, Miles Doleac engages film in a different way.  The geeks got a taste of that perspective through Miles' work, but tonight got a chance to understand some of his thoughts and views as they end up shown in his films.

During our discussions Miles gave us the lowdown on The Hollow: Self-described as a southern noir murder thriller that centers around an unfortunate event.  A Congressman's daughter is passing through the Mississippi, witnesses something she isn't supposed to see, and ends up part of a triple homicide.  Of course, the FBI swarms in and the secrets of the town slowly begin to be uncovered.

This has all the markings of a little Deliverance and some Mississippi Burning and maybe even a little Southern Comfort.  During the broadcast Miles go to lengths to describe the oppressive heat, the bugs, and muggy feeling all around..... It reminds us of a hot and sticky Kathleen Turner in her coming of age film Body Heat (more noir!).

With an all-star cast of actors that includes William Saddler, Jeff Fahey,  William Forsythe, James Callis, David Worshofsky, Miles Doleac himself and more, the who's who of actors that can play Southerners and or nosy federal agents seem all to be here.

The Hollow promises to be a step back to a type of film that has been missing.  A dirty, gritty, southern murder mystery that turns over every ugly rock in the bayou, but may also reveal a lot of the beauty along the way.

You can also check out the trailer for the Historian, which is currently available on most VOD platforms (Amazon, Hulu, iTunes, or your favorite VOD platform)


Here is DungeonMaster's review of The Historian by Miles Doleac as posted on Amazon and IMDB:
Deep, personal, and driving. A wonderful experience and a must recommend:
My immediate reaction while watching the movie the first time: Why
haven't I seen this????? Indie films are hard to keep up with and
harder still to separate the wheat from the chaff but the Historian has
risen to the top of my indie list to watch again and again, but more
importantly, to show off to my friends.

Primarily, I would not write you had to have spent any time in academia
to appreciate this movie, although having been to college or through a
college course might add some appreciation, it certainly is not needed.
The movie does not treat the viewer as obtuse. It assumes you can follow
along and understand the multi-layered and multi-faceted complexities
of the characters. Because the movie is able to go deep and wide with
each character, you can begin to see them as human beings with all
their faults. One might even find him or herself feeling sorry for the

In this movie, we follow the life of Valerian Hadley, played by the
immortal William Sadler. A middle-aged department head at a small
private university somewhere in the south, Hadley's world is crumbling.
Hadley struggles with his father's Alzheimer's. A new professor has
come to town to be the big man on campus. Couple all this with Hadley's
inability to get his new works published and the professor’s life is
just unraveling. His dry and bland personality meshed with the fact h...
