Airing this time after Dungeons & Dragons Adventures, The Crapshoot returns for our 2015 debut. In part 1, Josh and Jesse reconvene to talk about audience feedback, The Harvey Girls, geologist humor, the Xs do it Y joke format, Paul Ford and Tilde.club (here by the way are links to Paul Ford’s The Age of Mechanical Reproduction and its incredible Postscript), but also; not reading Metafilter threads, the glories of the hellban, backfiring twitter campaigns, clickhole, Poe’s law, Kevin Smith.

The long-overdue, field-recorded episode from XOXO Fest 2014, episode 21 finds Josh and Jesse mostly in drunken snippets as we are subsumed into @xoxo, along the way joined variously by Matthew Bogart ( @matthewbogart ), Brad Sucks ( @bradsucks ), Phil Nelson ( @philnelson ), and Monk Funkster ( @jimmythehorn ) in situ.
We sit down with Portland nerd Chris Barker and talk about old Mac hardware, the conceptual framework of New Years resolutions, and the fact that Josh has a beard. And we finally discuss Sugar Bush Squirrel.
Ahoy! The Crapshoot is on a brief hiatus while we deal with various pandemoniums. We will be back in a couple weeks for more boozin’ and chattin’ to wrap up 2013. Thanks!
Back after a short holiday delay, Josh and Jesse drink some Occidental Lucubrator and talk about timbre (“tamber!”), the language of mathematics, the taxonomy of first kisses, how much Guns ‘n Roses suck, how thoroughly time flies, etc.
