    Syndicated - Freaks And Geeks

    Travel back in time with your trust TV watching friends Andy, Luke, Neal and Nathan as we look at the beloved 1999 comedy Freaks and Geeks.  This show has become legendary over the years for a number of reasons, not the least of which is its cast: Seth Rogen, Jason Segel, Linda Cardelini, James Franco, and more, all before they truly became stars.

    We dive into the 18 episodes on offer to see if the Apatow origin story still holds up.  Stay after the closing theme music for a special annoucement about the future of the show.

    Rough Draught: One Night in Nashville

    It's been 12 months since Cross-Con 2015 took Karl Castaneda, Jon Rind, Mike Sklens and Jonny Metts to Nashville to hang out with Stan Ferguson, and as has become the tradition, that means it's time to listen to the episode of Rough Draught that we recorded one calendar year ago!

    This episode's pretty special, not just because we tried five all new beers, but also because we sampled Angel's Envy Rye Whiskey, a rare treat that took us way over the threshold into some kind of drunk wonderland. After a surprisingly measured and thoughtful 90 minutes of beer reviews, we descend into about 30 minutes of the kind of rowdy idiots you've come to associate with the Beer Appreciation Show.

    Want to show your support? Head on over to iTunes and leave us a rating and a review. And if you have any questions you'd like for us to answer on the next episode of Rough Draught, you can let us know via email (crosstawk@gmail.com), Twitter (@crosstawk), or in the comments section on the site.

    Thanks for listening, guys, and be on the lookout for Cross-Con 2016's episode of Box Office Poison to go up early next week!

    AustinMates: Episode 4 - Sega Kids are Broken

    AustinMates is back! After a brief break while Gabe was on vacation we're back with our next episode and a very special guest! We're joined by our long time friend Matt Hogan. We talk about what makes a great 3D Mario game, what it's like growing up as a Sega kid (hint: it's sad.), and Bravely Second. Jonathan makes a convincing case for Dark Souls and Matt provides some of the answers we've always wanted about Elder Scrolls Online without having to actually play it.

    A Thousand Words - Episode 39: The Mona Lisa is Missing!

    Due to three straight weeks of one of us being out of town, we're releasing a special series of episodes we'd originally planned for August!

    This and the the next two episodes are part of a crossover event we're doing with Turn to Page podcast, the podcast where we choose our own adventure! Stan reads from the masterpiece Choose Your Own Adventure book, The Mona Lisa is Missing, and Ron and Jessica make the choices. Also there's lots of goofing on the story. This is not to be missed!

    A Thousand Words - Episode 38: The Night Watch

    Today we get all classical up in here. Stan returns after a much-needed illness to discuss Rembrandt's The Night Watch. We manage to actually talk about the painting for a bit until we eventually hate on the Dutch again, bring up our concern about laser chickens, and the proper way to sit in between two people on a plane.

    A Thousand Words - Episode 37: Death of Princess Bonnet

    A Thousand Words returns after being stricken by the plague! In fact, Stan was so sick and travelling to Pittsburgh, that he couldn't even guest on this show. Which is a shame because this is A VERY SPECIAL EPISODE. Friend of the show and painting contributor West Side Wayne Knisely joins Jessica, Ron, and YET ANOTHER GUEST--James Vincent Cherry. And if that's not enough, this episode features two paintings: The Death of Princess Lamballe and The New Bonnet. Listen as they guess Stan's disease, decide the best position to be in for Jared Leto, and enjoy a man's frown.

    AustinMates: Episode 3 - Much Ado About VR

    In this episode our intrepid heroes discuss Quantum Break, the new Ratchet and Clank game (based on the movie, based on the game), as well as Gabriel's feelings about the Kingdom Hearts mobile games (spoiler: not a fan). We also talk about some Nintendo platform naming conventions you may have missed, this year's video game movie predictions, and a Deadwood drinking game no one could survive. 

    Will we see an upgraded Xbox at E3 this year? Should you play Telltale's The Wolf Among Us or Game of Thrones? And does virtual reality deliver on its promise to bring us a new way to play games, and truly immerse us all in virtual worlds? We don't know the answer to any of these questions, but we certainly have opinions!
