Tonight’s Think Tank question: I really want to take the leap to be an animator. It’s been my dream to tell stories for a long time. But I’m doubting that I’ll be good enough or that I can make it as an animator. I’m 30 years old. Is it too late for me to change careers? Should I just stay with the “pay the bills” job and be satisfied with that?

Tonight’s Discussion Topic: As esports becomes more popular, is the divide between esports fans and traditional sports fans widening? Does using “sportsball” as a term for traditional sports make us even for the power struggle and status differences between “jocks and nerds” from when we were kids, or are we just making it worse?   Be a part of the show by sending your Tell Us One Thing questions, feedback, and requests for advice to questions@taurenthinktank.com.

Tonight’s Think Tank question: How can you answer someone asking “Are you okay?” at work when you’re really, really not okay? My mom is dying of cancer and she’s been given days to live at this point. Unfortunately, life still has to keep going on, but I’m having a much harder time being my normal chipper self at work and coworkers have noticed. What can you say to someone who asks if you’re okay when you’re very much not?

Tonight’s Think Tank question: I’ve had a huge number of medical issues that have left me feeling broken and not the same anymore. I’ve pulled away from my friends and family and my mind is my enemy. I want to change, set goals for myself to be better, but it feels like a mountain to climb. What can I do?

Tonight’s Think Tank question: My aging father has mental impairment, and he was recently evicted from his assisted living home for inappropriately touching another resident. Though we’re trying to make sure he’s safe and cared for, I’m not able to support what he did, and I realize that I don’t like or respect my father anymore, but I feel I still need to help him.

Tonight’s discussion question: With the recent controversy of YouTuber Logan Paul filming a suicide victim in Japan as part of his vlog, we talk about the very real issues of depression and suicide, how they have affected us personally, and how we can be more compassionate and understanding as a society.

Tonight’s discussion question: when the holiday season isn’t so merry and bright for you, and why that’s so very okay. There’s a lot of pressure during the holidays to make things perfect, have a wonderful joyous time, but life often gets in the way of that. Also, with the upcoming New Year approaching, expecting to have a resolution and execute it can be daunting. What can we do to cope?

An update on why we missed the show last week, and news about this weekend’s Minnesota Meetup! Tonight’s discussion question (from a listener letter): I’m having a lot of RL troubles, one thing after another and it's getting me down. I let money slip away over the years and now that I need it, it’s not there. I just wish I hadn't made bad financial decisions when I was young, and had some now to spare.

Recording a day early for Thanksgiving! We’re giving thanks and enjoying the chat room this evening! Tonight’s discussion question (from a listener letter): I was listening to a TED Talk podcast about making the choice not to have children, and how society reacts to women who choose not to be childless. I have a wonderful partner and neither of us have felt strongly about wanting to have kids. But everyone says, “Oh just wait - you’ll change your mind about that.” How do I come to terms with being a woman who doesn’t want to have kids?

Marconin’s returning to PAX South, Jules shares a personal podcasting accomplishment, and much more! Tonight’s discussion question: There’s been a lot of controversy and debate about the benefits of adding voice chat to Heroes of the Storm. Though it’s very beneficial to team coordination and increasing competitive advantages, voice chat also opens up opportunities for gender discrimination, harassment, racism, and more. Should HotS bring in voice chat now after not having it for so long?
