Greetings, fellow geeks and nerds! We hope you all are fairing well out there right now. Things at the moment are...quite strange, to say the least. So we put together an episode for you that might help you make it through this "Social Distancing" period that we are all having to endure. We first talk a bit about some things that we've been doing to bide our time, then we recorded a few mini-segments with past podcast guests (listed below) to see what they've been up to. Just a fair warning, there's plenty of talk about nerdy stuff (duh), including Animal Crossing: New Horizons!

Mini-Segment #1 features Julian Loomis, our guest for Ep. #44 - Fueling Self-Improvement Through Nerdom.

Mini-Segment #2 features Kirk Griffin, a guest featured on two episodes in 2019 when we did our #RoadToMTAC series: Ep. #27 - #RoadToMTAC2019 Pt 2, Digital Gaming and Ep. #29 - #RoadToMTAC2019 Pt 3, Anime.

Mini-Segment #3 features Zailey Williams, who was a guest on Ep. #47 - Anime-Influenced Art, alongside her friends Miser and Rachel Watts.

GG Goes to the Movies #17: “John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum” Watch-Along

February 23, 2020

It's the return of the Baba Yaga! David and Ted invite you to a watch-along of one of their favorite movies from 2019, John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum.

If you're new to our watch-along series, here are some helpful tips/disclaimers: First, if you haven't seen the movie at least once already, we HIGHLY suggest you watch it before you enjoy it with us! Second, although you can listen to the episode as a stand-alone podcast, we definitely suggest you sync it up to the movie. Lastly, the best way to sync the movie up with our podcast is to pause when the "Lionsgate" logo is fully on screen (about 16 seconds in), and then once you hear the record scratch after our intro music you hit play!

Ep. #47 - Anime-Influenced Art (and the Artists that make it)

February 9, 2020

The podcast welcomes three amazing artists who have an artistic style that is heavily influenced by anime: Miser, Rachel, and Zailey. We had the pleasure of meeting and working alongside these ladies in the Artist Alley at GalaxyCon Louisville, back in November 2019. They were gracious enough to come on the podcast to discuss what it’s like being artists of different mediums, give a look into their artist processes, and give advice to any independent artists out there looking to make a name for themselves. We then spent some time chatting about our favorite anime shows, and properly define the term "weeb" for David.

Please take a moment to check out these incredibly talented artists, and follow them on social media!

Miser: @miserablearts

Rachel: LetsMakePeopleSmile/@rachelsrandomartwork
