    Marconin acquired a bunch of new mounts this week and Jules has some preliminary BlizzCon party news! Our discussion question: Has anyone ever used their experience as raid leader or guild leader on a resume or job application? Will there ever be a time where this experience is applicable? Our Think Tank question: I’m in a dead guild. I want to have people around me again, but I’m not a leader or someone who likes recruiting. What would you do if you were me?

    Marconin’s running old raids with some new buddies, and Jules has the Heroes fever on this latest episode! Our discussion question: Why do standardized tests have so much weight in determining our future for success in school?  Our Think Tank question: I’m the one who always helps everyone with advice, support and a kind word, but I can’t let myself ask for help. It gets so bad that I want to scream, cry, smash my head against a wall, or worse. What can I do?

    New mounts to share, new boss kills to report, and an unintentionally-supersized show, just for you! Our discussion question: What can do I to keep the racist, sexist, and offensive behavior in Trade Chat, and people who kill NPCs for fun from negatively impacting my WoW experience? Our Think Tank question: I’m getting treatment for very vivid thoughts of walking up to strangers and killing them. I have a girlfriend who I want to be honest with, but she’s never seen me at my worst. How can I talk to her about this?

    There’s some big news to share for Cat on Fire and Marconin is doing his best Orc peon impression...in real life. Our discussion question: I’ve found my passion of being a stand-up comedian, but my two jobs leave me with no time to actually practice in open-mic nights. At what point do you decide to put your dream on hold, or should you just throw caution to the wind and go for it? Our Think Tank question: My raiding group has a problem team member, but the dynamics of our cross-server, multi-guild raid composition makes it difficult for her behavior to be addressed, and she keeps acting out. Should I stand aside or get involved? Be a part of the show by sending your Tell Us One Thing questions, feedback, and requests for advice to questions@taurenthinktank.com.

    It’s a holiday weekend, but for poor Marconin, it’s a long... weekend.  Check out this episode for 5 minutes of thoughts about no flying in Draenor, and for Marconin’s story on how he hurt himself playing trombone. Our discussion question: Have you ever had a time when you felt your life lacked purpose? What did you do to get past it? Our Think Tank question: We have a transgender woman on our team, and though the team is accepting, we sometimes slip up and refer to her as “he” or him” without meaning to. How do we get more comfortable as a team when we accidentally mix up gender pronouns?

    It’s our 3-year anniversary, and we’re celebrating with some fun segments - Tell Me A Story and the return of the Taste Tanks with Japanese Kit Kats! Our discussion question: When I get rejected by people I want to date, I just put it aside and don’t really care about it much. Is this okay to do? Our Think Tank question: I suffer from 30+ suicidal ideations per day, but I’ve found a way to manage it on my own because I can’t go to therapy. Is this a good idea?

    We’re back after the Minnesota Meetup - lots to share and update you on! Our discussion question: Do you feel that people seek out compliments and praise from others because our society is so reluctant to give praise to others? Why is this? Our Think Tank question: My wife cheated on me, and I’m trying to get past the sadness for myself and my daughter. I love her and want to be with her, but I feel like I’ve failed at everything. What advice do you have for me? Be a part of the show by sending your Tell Us One Thing questions, feedback, and requests for advice to questions@taurenthinktank.com. Slash Moo, everybody!

    Raiding, gold-making, and leveling...and advice! Our discussion question: I bought my first BlizzCon ticket! I’m attending alone and I’m nervous about not knowing anyone. What can I do to feel more comfortable? Our Think Tank question: Is it necessary to be a jerk to be a raid leader? My teammates are leaving because our leader makes the experience uncomfortable.  Be a part of the show by sending your Tell Us One Thing questions, feedback, and requests for advice to questions@taurenthinktank.com.

    Marconin has a mount-collector’s milestone to share on this week’s show! Our discussion question: I want to find my passion but I don’t know how. I think I really enjoy PvP but I don’t think I’m entertaining enough to stream or do a podcast. How do I look for a passion? Our Think Tank question: The person hired as our plant manager is causing harm to our company. I have the pull to get him demoted but I don’t want to make anyone angry. What should I do?  Be a part of the show by sending your Tell Us One Thing questions, feedback, and requests for advice to questions@taurenthinktank.com. Slash Moo, everybody!

    There’s WoW game tokens, life changes, and meetups to discuss on this week’s show! Think Tank question #1: I still have feelings for my ex-girlfriend, who dumped me 7 years ago. We’re both married, but I had to skip my mother’s wedding because I knew my ex would be there. How can I get over these feelings? Think Tank Question #2: I look in the mirror and I see a monster. I go through the motions in life, trying to act normal, but nearly everyone I come in contact with seems to be not worth their oxygen. Can anyone come back from this?  Be a part of the show by sending your Tell Us One Thing questions, feedback, and requests for advice to questions@taurenthinktank.com. Slash Moo, everybody!

About

A weekly podcast hosted by Jules & Marconin, Tauren Think Tank focuses on the World of Warcraft player; more specifically, the interpersonal issues that players experience both in-game and in their outside lives. This show is an audio advice column, where listeners send e-mails or tweets for the hosts to answer them with real-life, practical advice mixed with lighthearted humor. TTT focus its questions on in-game concerns such as guild life, raid team issues, and interactions with other players, as well as "real life" issues like depression, anxiety, LGBT relations, and much more. Both Jules and Marconin are long-time players of WoW, who have experience with 10-man raiding, PvE, and PvP, while balancing their busy lives and families outside the game.
