    We’re back with stories of travel and mounts you can’t see! Our discussion topic: This week, Blizzard sent out thank you gifts to players who had been subscribed consistently for 10 years. Why is it hard for some people to be genuinely happy for those who receive something they didn’t or could not? How can we be better about battling the feelings of being left out or overlooked? Our question of the week: I’m a student, gamer, and podcaster. I find that I put the things I love to do over the things I need to do for my schoolwork and health. How can I be better about this and balance my buckets of energy in a healthier way?  Be a part of the show by sending your Tell Us One Thing questions, Slash Moos, feedback, and requests for advice to questions@taurenthinktank.com.

    It’s another Happy Moo Year! Our discussion topic: A listener shared that she is asexual and her boyfriend has asked that she not share that with anyone. Why do we fear what we don’t understand, enough to make others’ scared to reveal personal things about themselves? Our question of the week: I have severe anxiety in my job, where I believe that every meeting or discussion I’m not a part of is about me and my performance. How can I not sabotage my new job that I worked so hard to get with this way of thinking?  Be a part of the show by sending your Tell Us One Thing questions, Slash Moos, feedback, and requests for advice to questions@taurenthinktank.com.

    It’s a holiday Think Tank, complete with surprises, gifts, and giveaways! Our discussion topic: How much power is too much for a guild officer?  Our question of the week: I’m being bullied on Twitter and in my workplace, and people continue to tell me to “get over it” and “stop being so sensitive”. I don’t know what to do, and it’s gotten so bad that I’ve cut myself to feel better. Why do people tell adults to just “get over it” in the face of bullying?  Be a part of the show by sending your Tell Us One Thing questions, Slash Moos, feedback, and requests for advice to questions@taurenthinktank.com.

    We’re having ourselves a garrison good time this week! Our discussion topic: How do you handle extreme stress? What do you do when you feel there’s no end in sight for that stress?

    It’s a week of holiday decorating, coffee mug philosophy, garrisons and raiding! Our discussion topic: When we say we don’t have enough hours in the day to do all we think we should do, what does that really equate to? As gamers, do we spend our time differently than other people? Our question of the week: How do I fight the urge to vent all of my frustrations about my relationship to my closest friends and not betray my partner’s trust by oversharing private details to other people?

    We’re back after a week of illness and….dunging?! We give our initial impressions of the content to this point, and what we’re doing after level 100. Our discussion topic: I’ve been playing Horde for many expansions, but after reading some of the backstory of what Garrosh did to the Night Elves, I can’t play my Horde characters anymore! What can I do? Our advice question of the week: I have mental and physical disabilities, and my mother blames all of my problems on WoW and other games. Please help me understand why she blames everything on my love of games.  Be a part of the show by sending your Tell Us One Thing questions, Slash Moos, feedback, and requests for advice to questions@taurenthinktank.com.

    Jules & Marconin are in the same room, recording live from the AIE Guild Hall at the Hilton Anaheim hotel! We talk all of our impressions of the announcements at BlizzCon, and some of the cool interactions we had with friends and fans.

    It’s one week until BlizzCon, and we might be a little excited!  Our discussion topic: a video went viral this week featuring a young woman walking the streets of NYC being catcalled by various men. We discuss both sides of the argument and how it applies to the gaming world between men and women. Our advice question comes from a listener who cannot remember his life prior to his 13th birthday, has dreamt about terrible tragedies and catastrophic events, and now no longer dreams at all. What does this all mean and should he try to find out what happened to him?  Be a part of the show by sending your Tell Us One Thing questions, Slash Moos, feedback, and requests for advice to questions@taurenthinktank.com.

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.
