    Sharku is our guest co-host this week once again! Discussion topic: a female gamer wants to know why some female gamers use their sexuality to communicate with people and make others uncomfortable in the process. Our advice question of the week: I’m in a social guild, but sometimes I like to just be by myself and not join in voice chat even though they invite me to. Am I being too hard on myself for feeling guilty that I just like my alone time?

    Sharku joins Jules as a special guest host for this episode. Is the brewing backlash against those who identify as gamers a result of years of bullying and discrimination from people who enjoyed these interests as kids? Our question of the week comes from AJ, who feels she is dealing with depression but is afraid to say something to her family because she may scare them.

    We're back this week with special guest host, Marconin! Jules shares where the next phase of TTT is heading. Our discussion topic comes from an article on TheVerge.com that links WoW addiction to the new "undelete character" function that will be added in Warlords of Draenor. Our question of the week comes from a player who cannot sleep - sometimes for 3-9 days at a time. What can be done that hasn't already been tried? A tremendous thank you to all of you who have reached out to share your support and appreciation for the show. We are thrilled to be back!

    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?

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.
