Episode 284 – A live show full of listener questions

Hey guys! Welcome to episode 284! Tonight the show goes live in an attempt to put the new computer through its paces. Amazingly it worked! The live video including the exciting set-up portion is available on the Alexxcast youtube page. Besides the jaw-dropping action of Alexx trying to get the video setting correct, we discuss: How Arthur Conan Doyle would feel about the myriad adaptations of his work; who will host next year’s Academy Awards; a great guide to microdosing; a cool writing app named after a monster; an app for easy sigil making; and lots of listener questions via the Alexxcast subreddit. Also: a certain bar in a certain area of Portland is described in detail… and I think a shout out happened too, but I’m too lazy to go back and confirm that. Enjoy!

Episode 281 – Mysterioso Pizzicato, an exploration of live-show failure

Hey guys, welcome to episode 281. Before I even begin to tell you about the episode let me break the important news: I finally found that stupid musical cue I’ve been looking for! I’ve talked about it on the show a million times…. The sneaky cartoon thief music, remember? I mean, this has been years in the making, and finally Atlas Obscura writes an article on it! Praise! Praise! Praise Atlas Obscura!

On tonight’s episode Alexx discussed his newest short story release; discusses possible Oscar winners; his binge watching of The Clone Wars cartoon; a story about how few silent films we still have; a talk about the strange back-story of the “missing” Princess Bride chapters/sequels/etc…; and we update the audience on the Ouija reading from the previous episode- hint: it turns out the mysterious world of the Ouija remains mysterious. Enjoy!
