“He’s about to hyuck you up.”

Had enough of E3 2017 yet? Of course you haven’t! The show may be over, but that doesn’t mean you have to stop listening to people describe the same video footage over and over! Brandon, Liz, Harrison, Emily, and special guest Eric (nope, not that Eric) are here to deliver exactly that as they discuss all of last week’s major reveals, trailers, hiccups, stutters, fumbles, touchdowns… uh, what were we talking about again? Is Pelé here? Wait, wrong football. Anyway: E3!

“…and that’s exactly when the Adderall wore off.”

Shake off those post-E3 blues with Brandon, Eric, Josh, Liz and Harrison as they get some eyewitness accounts of the show floor, make some live preparations for San Diego Comic-Con, and share a survival guide for conventions in general. (Which prescription medication will help you land that perfect celebrity encounter? Have a pen and paper ready.) Then, after the break, Emily joins in as we celebrate Jurassic World’s record-breaking box office numbers by ripping it to shreds… and answer a few listener emails.

Human sweat burritos, marshmallow buttholes and plenty of bung for everyone!

It’s a special post-con episode this week as our regular roster and a lineup of special guests join the show for a long weekend of friends, family, costumes, cosplay, sad boobs, glad boobs, coin-repelling butts, propmaking, drink-taking, Adam Savage, chipmunk heaven, and convention-themed trivia.

Hit the jump for a modest gallery of costumes and antics!

This episode is the special-est, you guys.

In this super adult-sized four-hour episode, JKP tackles the latest scandals, controversies and general uproar regarding sexism and feminism within the realms of video games, comics and more.

Brandon, Tom, Josh and Harrison kick off the first half, giving their thoughts and opinions on everything from abusive game trailers to feminist kickstarters to overtly sexual comic characters. Then, in the second half, Brandon sticks around as moderator for perspectives on those same topics from Heidi, Sarah, Emily, Naty and JKP newcomer Jen. Ire is rised! Eyes are rolled! It’s one of our most concentrated episodes yet, and most certainly the longest. Put on those sincerity hats and (hopefully) enjoy!

Timecodes for the impatient (and who can blame them) are as follows:

The Boy Half: 0:03:10  —  The Girl Half: 2:11:30

Lastly, don’t forget to hit the jump for a comprehensive list of all the relevant topics, articles, trailers and videos that pop up during the discussions!
