More root beer seltzer #content than you knew you needed. The boys transition this from a podcast where they talk about not having jobs to instead talking about having jobs. Complementary discussions on language, programming, and music get thrown in there. All kinds of gaming talk: fantasy football, Arkham Horror, chess, and League of Legends. Plus, some books have been quit while others have been read. Music Music excerpts from Symphony No.3 'Scottish', Op.56 by Felix Mendelssohn, performed by the Czech National Symphony Orchestra.

First your hosts grapple with getting old and how birthdays are to be handled. Before they go into the deep end of nerd-dom. MMOs! X-Men! Marvel and DC! But ultimately it's not content, is it?

Monoprice doesn't actually sponsor us, we just make use of their products and can't help but talk about it. Alex wants an audience, but really just needs a microphone. Our hosts speak optimistically of the new Dune movie whose trailer is now available. Danny teaches Alex about League of Legends. Inevitably, chess and fitness make an appearance as well. Football and nascar sneak in there. And aliens! The flying saucer in question does, in fact, sponsor us.

Birds and their influence on gaming. Danny is rocking it in Japanese Duolingo. Alex is deluded about leaderboards. Books were read and fitness was achieved. Danny will play e4 someday. Someday. Music is too loud. But both hosts want a piano real bad. Real bad. It's too bad Alex hates music. A quote "Intelligibility in music seems to be impossible without repetition. While repetition without variation can easily produce monotony, juxtaposition of distantly related elements can easily degenerate into nonsense, especially if unifying elements are omitted. Only so much variation as character, length and tempo required should be admitted: the coherence of motive-forms should be emphasized." - Arnold Schoenberg, Fundamentals of Musical Composition Music Music excerpts from Symphony No.3 'Scottish', Op.56 by Felix Mendelssohn, performed by the Czech National Symphony Orchestra.

Keanu Reeves is on our minds today. Followup: * Danny watched Hamilton * Danny listened to Strong Songs * Alex is not so smart A conspicuously large amount of sports are discussed! Basketball, Hockey... Crossfit... Race Walking! It gets a little weird. Danny plays some pro-level D&D and reads a pro-level book.

Alex wants to know who won the 2016 Crossfit Games. Danny finished Dune by Frank Herbert, and both hosts have some #opinions . Really big swords are compared.

Life is good. Even for introverts who need their space. Media catchup on Hamilton, The Mandalorian, Dark, The Witcher, Tiger King, and X-Men. Alex is not a runner, but is now running. Danny is less interested in participating. Music theory via podcasts and youtube rings all the bells of our hosts. Music in person is more and more likely. Alex is strangely in a good mood.

Episode 2: Grav Day

Breakfast, Brunch and Lunch and their associated foods are very important to our hosts. Chess is reviewed and played. A brief memoir of the worst sort of chess smack talk is brought back to light. Plus D&D, Sabbaticals, Duolingo, and more!

Our hosts get excited for an upcoming Dungeons & Dragons session and theorize D&D's value in an educational setting. Books have been read! Comedy has been laughed at! And we remember just enough of it to chat. Moonwalking with Einstein by Joshua Foer is discussed at length so we can remember more (or not) another time.
