Episode 14 – Cautiously Pessimistic

Episode 14 – Cautiously Pessimistic

With a revived vigor, Dan and Andrew tackle one of the [relatively] biggest topics yet: Doctor Who. Not to worry, however, because they surround their Doctor Who talk with the usual thoughtful commentary about topics that For All Intents and Purposes envelops.

Week in Geek: Andrew watches To Be Takei and Dan talks about working with an artist on Long John.

The Mass Effect Series: Another installment in their look at culturally and intellectually important video games, Dan and Andrew expand their breadth and discuss why the entire Mass Effect series is so important.

Discussion: As expected, Andrew and Dan watched the new episode of Doctor Who‘s Series 8, “Deep Breath”, a bit too closely and have a lot of things to say about it, focusing on the 12th Doctor (as played by Peter Capaldi), its themes, and how it fits in to the show overall.

The Big Lebowski: Expanding their breadth even more, Dan and Andrew discuss a movie that they feel is culturally and intellectually important, hoping to expose an angle on the Coen Bros.’ The Big Lebowski that you haven’t really considered before.

Question: Much like Comic Con before it, another huge convention is about to happen––the Penny Arcade Expo, colloquially known as PAX (or PAX Prime). So, with that in mind we want to know,

What came out of PAX that got you excited and/or intrigued?

Since it hasn’t happened yet, Andrew and Dan couldn’t quite answer the question. However, we’d love to hear from you! Leave a comment at the post for this episode at forall.libsyn.com, or e-mail us at forallpod@gmail.com.

Episode 10 – Nerd Business

Episode 10 – Nerd Business

The podcast reaches an arbitrary milestone and our hosts celebrate in style!  They also make another podcast that falls into line with the standards set by the preceding episodes.

The Week in Geek:  Andrew plays a video game card game based on an MMO as well as, in his words, “eating comic books.”  Dan talks about his own comic, Long John.

Boasts of Bethel: Dan reminisces on his two experiences with ComicCon, and tries to figure out what the SDCC (as the REAL fans call it) is actually about.

Discussion: Since one of the biggest nerd gatherings happened this week in San Diego, Andrew and Dan decide to discuss it; but, more specifically, they try to answer the age old SDCC question: Who won––Marvel or DC?

Games That Matter: Dan and Andrew craft an argument as to why the Playstation 1 game, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, is super-important and should be on everybody’s roster.

Geek Thoughts:  After finally answering last week’s question, they go broad with this week’s, asking:

What is a movie, tv, or video game soundtrack that you hold particularly dear and why?

Submit your answer as a comment on the episode’s page at forall.libsyn.com, on Facebook, Google+, or Twitter (Dan and Andrew).  Also feel free to subscribe to the podcast on iTunes and be sure to leave a comment there about how much you enjoy our thoughtful investigations into things geeky and nerdy!

Episode 05 – Remembers the Poops

Episode 05 – Remembers the Poops

With Dan running at about 60%, Andrew boldly steps up to the reins and wheels a new episode through to the finish line.  Under his masterly guidance, they competently discuss the following:

Week in Geek – Andrew plays X-Com again.  Dan plays Street Fighter IV for the first time.

Boasts of Bethel – Dan discusses thinking about making comics too hard.

Nerd Topics – Writer/director Rian Johnson was announced to helm episode 8 of Star Wars (and possibly episode 9), and with that news Dan and Andrew discuss the worlds of reboots and continuations and what it all means.

Who Cares (title still pending) – The guys discuss a Doctor Who event that is particularly near and dear to Andrew as he had to say goodbye to his Doctor in a particularly gruesome fashion.  They discuss Doctor Who: The Movie.

Closing Time – Before getting to the new nerdly question, fans’ answers to last week’s question are addressed.  But this week they ask:

What nerd product/media do you feel represents or comments on its era? Why?

What is your answer to this question?  Leave a comment either at forall.libsyn.com, the posts on Facebook, or send an email at forallpod [at] gmail.com and your answers will be read on the next episode!

It’s an exciting week!  For all intents and purposes, that’s an episode recap.
