About

A weekly podcast hosted by Rem and Jules, Tauren Think Tank focuses on the World of Warcraft player; more specifically, the drama that may or may not come with playing WoW, both in-game and in real life. Our show is an audio advice column, where our listeners send e-mails or tweets and we answer them with advice and lighthearted humor. We focus our questions on Guild and Raid Leadership, drama with other players, conflicts with real life, personal dilemmas with the game, etc. Rem and Jules are guild officers and long-time players of WoW. We have experience with 10-man raiding, PvE, and PvP, and with balancing our busy lives and families outside the game.
