    Rem is back, baby... in WoW! Jules talks about the day-to-day challenges of running a mega-guild. Our discussion topic of the week: what are our definitions of friendship and the different types of friends we have? How have our friendships changed since we've gotten older? How does the online world change how we view and define friendships? We have Tell Us One Thing questions and feedback from our last few shows' discussions.

    We ran our own social experiment last week and we didn't even know it! Rem is getting the itch to play WoW again, and Jules is trying to enjoy the leveling process again. Our discussion topic: does the American culture and work ethic dictate the level of our reactions when things in the gaming world change or don't go as planned? We have Tell Us One Thing, feedback from you, and a continuing discussion about depression in our question of the week - what do you do when you're feeling depressed but you still feel like you should keep raiding even when you don't want to? Be a part of the discussion, send us your requests for advice and share your feedback with us at questions@taurenthinktank.com. Slash Moo, everybody!

    Rem has been on vacation and playing Hearthstone and Jules is busy with BlizzCon prep already! Our discussion topic of the week: why are people so willing to jump in outrage against Blizzard and not give them credit on the things they do right? We have Tell Us One Thing, feedback from you and the final food tasting from Jenn Morton's box. Our question of the week: as someone who is pessimistic, sarcastic and blunt, can you suggest any sites where I can find like-minded people to socialize with?

    Rem tells a story about the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, and Jules is dealing with changes in procedures in the CtR guild invite process. We talk at length about depression and suicide related to the sudden passing of Robin Williams this week, thanks to a listener question on the subject. Our question of the week: how do you find time to play WoW working all day and having a lot of other things to do? And, is it okay to play WoW as a single player game if social anxiety keeps you from interacting with other players? There's Tell Us One Thing, feedback from you, and another installment of the Taste Tank.

    Rem is very happy with Guardians of the Galaxy and Jules went to the Ren Faire last weekend with some listeners of the show! Our discussion topic: do you get nostalgic for things in-game, or experiences of games you play?

    We have feedback from you, Tell Us One Thing, a Taste Tank segment featuring Japanese candies, chili-flavored chocolate and a really gross Jelly Belly Russian Roulette. Our question of the week: I'm on a raid team, but I'm only 15 and afraid to talk on Mumble. How can I be accepted in the group even though I'm so much younger?

    Rem has been busy vacationing and enjoying time with his kids - mostly! Jules has a funny story from work, and is playing a boosted paladin from her days in BC. Our discussion topic this week: why people in a large Alliance guild feel it's okay to repeatedly say the guild would be improved if it were Horde instead. There's Tell Us One Thing, Slash Moos, and a touching feedback letter. Our question of the week: why does religion play such a large part in dating? Should it dictate whether two people are compatible with each other? Next week, Jules will be attending the MN Meetup on Saturday, July 26th from 3-7pm at the Herkimer Pub in Minneapolis - please come and say hi!

    We're back after a false start on Wednesday - luckily, Rem's internet didn't go down this time! Rem went to ConnectiCon and Jules went to Nerdtacular, and we both have lots of stories about people we met and places we saw. Tell Us One Thing, an update from a previous letter, feedback from you, and we answer a question about the challenges of losing interest in things after being asked to step up in a more prominent role, and the power of saying "no" when it's right.

    It's a Sunday night show because Rem spent Saturday night meeting Marconin for the first time! Jules is jetting off to Nerdtacular this week and has some stories about her cats. Tell Us One Thing, feedback from you, and a big discussion topic this week: what do you do when you just can't ask for help - from anybody? In game, in life, from your friends or spouse? What does it mean and where does it come from? Be a part of the show by sending us your topics for discussion and requests for advice to questions@taurenthinktank.com. Slash Moo, everybody!

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.
