Sushma kicks out the rest of the Con Artists and invites a special guest! Resident Pokémon expert Chris is here to chat about the original Red and Blue versions of this incredible franchise.

Rolling Review -Tokyo 24-ku

Rolling Review -Tokyo 24-ku

May 23, 2022

The Con Artists Podcast: Rolling Review 23 

In a world where surveillance is threatening the 24th District, three heroes will rise up to take on trolley dilemmas and save their friend/sister/girlfriend who died in a fire years prior. There'll be some girl who desperately wanted a complicated romance plot, a dude in a cowboy hat who now licks spray paint cans, and a scene where one of our heroes ziplines into a drug addict's window and smashes him in the face with a skateboard. The only thing more powerful than having large pecks for bread-making, is going full vigilante with a sacred donut handoff. 

Everything about this show is excellent and after listening to us you definitely won't wonder if Cloverworks is being worked into an early grave.

Su seems to have struck out with most of her choices but Scott and Dan fared much better. Brendan was jettisoned into space but he's thankfully not a vampire (yet). Clearly the best strategy is to only watch cute girls making pottery, and brilliantly written historical dramas.

Come have a listen!

The Con Artists Podcast: Rolling Review 21 

It all comes to a close as we say goodbye to the Soma family and everyone involved in their circle. We are sad to see this show go, but all of us have enjoyed our time immensely with these wonderful characters. Please consider donating to the imaginary: Save a Soma fund so all these people can get therapy someday. I love this show so much that I'm not even going to put a snarky write up. Come have a listen.

Spring 2021 End of Cour - Part III

September 3, 2021

End of Cour Spring 2021 

 

It's Part III of our Spring 2021 discussion. Su and Scott watched way too many shows (are you surprised?!). If we were more hip, we'd call this a flex, but instead we are just old anime nerds who are way too tired for this sh*t. Spring 2021, seriously...why were you so good?!
The best show ever (according to Scott) appears in this podcast alongside the biggest disappointment. Can you wager a guess as to what the latter is? Come and listen to us continue to yack about anime!

CD Projekt Management (Project Management in Games) - Part 2

Warning: Profanity
Here in Part 2, we'll take a more introspective approach. Why are we so kosher with buying broken games? Why do we keep getting deceived by E3 trailers? Why did Dianna and that developer in Cubicle 6 delay your favorite game, and ruin Christmas for everyone?! Come have a listen!

Wandering Witch the Journey of Elaina

The Con Artists: Rolling Review #19

Fall 2020

 

A self absorbed witch name Elaina journey's around the world being a bratty tourist. She eats food and leaves. Magic is almost always awful, and makes very little sense in this show. Why does everyone have an obsessive personality?! Did we mention Elaina's a terrible person? Believe it or not, this is the most accurate RR description we've ever written.

Spring & Summer 2020

Tohru and the gang are back for Season 2. Rin turns into a horse and has the saddest backstory ever. Yuki gets sold to God's household and abused to high heaven. Uo can't feed the deer properly, and Hana can't recite a haiku to save her life. Oh well, at least they managed to get through that Cinderella(ish) play!
