On this episode of WASD, the Whales are Whales Pod-Cast's bonus video gaming show, Zach somehow plays Twitch. Yes, the video game live-streaming site. He *plays* it. It's quite a sight to behold. Also, Cameron hears voices, and everyone is concerns for his health as he hosts the show and ends the episode in the worst possible way.
We didn't have the time to record a regular episode of the Pod-Cast this week, and for that we are eternally sorry. However, Cameron decided he wanted to put up something, at the very least, so he pestered Stephen to join him for a quick recording of an interesting (depending on who you ask) thing that happened in his life.
We're sorry for the lack of an episode this week, and promise we'll be back next week with a regular episode!
Stephen is a busy man. So busy, in fact, that he had time to write a multi-part quiz about himself for this week's episode! After a 40-minute intro of talking about their lives or something, the panel moves onto their exciting awesome well-planned top-of-the-line gourmet hobby-grade impressionist pseudo-spiritual segment about a man whose name begins with an "S" and ends with an "N" and middles with a "TEPHE". Test your skills with the panel, and see how well YOU don't know Stephen!
On this week's pod-cast, it's The Zachary and Ben Show brought to you by alcohol! The two talk about drinking, Ben's lack of remorse over his wife's inability to imbibe with him, and the two make plans to get wrecked together at some point in the future.
In other pod-cast news, the two give advice to a would-be Justin Bieber fan, the vertically challenged and a man who just wants to get out. Elsewhere, Zachary envisions the day he dies and Ben gets an amazing package in the mail.
Finally, a poorly produced (and I mean poorly) Story Time caps things off with aplomb.

Four of the six members of the Whales are Whales Pod-Cast are in the same exact house hold, which means that everyone has super bad audio because no one is professional enough to set up four microphones! Instead, they use one during a thunderstorm and have to use tons of noise cancellation to make anything sound good! If that description doesn't already have you racing to listen, we also talk a lot about things relating very closely to video games, but not actually video games directly for a looooooooong time! It's a hoot!

Title: The Peddler's Legacy
In this brand-spanking-new episode of the Whales are Whales Pod-Cast, stuff happens and everyone laughs! Ok, real talk, no one reads these descriptions, right? Ya'll just click on the episode button and listen to the episode. I once had a teacher in highschool who never actually graded our work, he's just give us a grade based on what he thought we deserved. One time, we put an insult on the third page of a 10 page paper (it was a very mean insult), and we never heard back from him, so we all assumed we were correct in thinking he never graded anything.
...sorry, I might have blacked out for a minute. I hope you enjoy this week's episode of The Pod-Cast!
Stephen's back, and he's the host! No, no, not the organic living space of a parasitic creature or a male version of the beloved Twinkie inventor, but the man with the plan-- or, in this case, the dude with the 'tude. Stephen has picked up a passive aggressive attitude in his time away, so he spends every cent of his good will on calling Cameron a slob, insinuating that Bryan is boring, suggesting that Abigail is overweight, and making a vicious crack about Zachary's social life. Perhaps all the talk about beer had him drunk with power, or maybe the subject of this episode's Storytime made him prickly, but his unacceptable behavior puts him out of a job as Cameron resumes hosting duties. Which actually works better because Cameron has plenty of parasitic creatures AND Twinkies in his slobby mess of a kitchen HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAH
[Editor's note: Stephen has also been removed from his editing duties.]
On this week's (really late, I'm so sorry) WASD, Zachary, Cameron and Stephen go over all the games that were announced or shown at E3 2017. They come to the conclusion that Knack 2 will definitely win Game of the Year. This description in no way misrepresents the thoughts and opinions of Cameron and Stephen. They love Knack even more than Zachary! Crazy! I know!

After last week's rousing success, Bryan has decided to take matter's in someone else's hands and make Cameron host. Cameron used his dizzying power and authority to be really polite and ask people good questions. Weddings were also discussed extensively for some reason, despite no one really liking them.
Welcome to the Whales are Whale Pod-cast, a normal podcast with normal people who discuss normal things! Like normal guns, normal getting old, and normal complimenting Bryan (who is very normal). I hope you normally enjoy this episode a normal amount! That would be normal.
On WASD this week, Zachary and Cameron invite fellow Whales and Whales network member Tzuf onto to the show to discuss why Souls games appeal to many people, and how so many games take the formula, but mix it up to better or worse effects. Cameron goes on and on about how Batman: Arkham Knight is literally exactly like the other two games, except there is a Batmobile, Zach and Tzuf talk about RPGs a lot, and at the very end, we discuss... the age of the members of the network? That doesn't involve video games, and we're quite sorry.
Edited by Cameron (and he's sorry for the... "music")
Today the podcasters are faced with a new challenge—end on time or DIE.
In this week’s episode Bryan is too busy, Cameron berates defenseless high schoolers, Abigail fights against grammar illiteracy, and Tzuf stays up until 4am to talk about dragon balls.
Hey folks, there's no new episode this week, and there's a very good reason for that. The Whales are Whales crew thought the best way to celebrate Memorial Day weekend would be for us to all go to Japan. How exciting!
While we were there, I ran into Miss Anime and had the exciting opportunity to conduct an on the spot interview. She had a lot of great things to say, and even gave one of her trademark greetings to all her overseas fans. I hope you like it!
We'll be back next week with a proper episode. See ya then!
Interview conducted by Zachary. Edited by Zachary. Thanks again to Miss Anime for taking time out of her busy schedule to speak with us.
Have you ever wanted an extensive list of everything Abigail ate over the course of a week? Perhaps there's been a burning drive to learn the exact heights of three random people you've probably never met? OR MAYBE. JUST MAYBE. You have spent many a sleepless night wondering why Kentucky bluegrass is called bluegrass.
If so wow congratulations this episode is freakishly tailored for you.
Bryan, Abigail, and Abigail’s sister, Ariel, come to you from a small room in a small house in the small town in the small…ish state of Florida. Gathering in-person (for once) and recording on a not-so-great built-in laptop mic, these three chums talk about wanting more money, try to read Stephen’s mind, and advising Ariel not to get into anime.
On this week's WASD, Stephen shows up to talk about a pretty little game called Rakuen. As for the usual panelists, Cameron wants to know if Heroes is bad for his health, and Zachary is playing things that aren't JRPGs. It all culminates in a big quiz fight between Cameron and Stephen over who knows their video game bosses best.
Editor's Note: There is no background music this week because I'm insanely busy reviewing two big JRPGs for HonestGamers (shameless plug) and I'm way behind thanks to a bunch of stuff all happening at once. It's no excuse, but I still want to apologize!

It is currently almost 3 in the morning, Pacific Time, and I'm not crazy in the mood to figure out how to write a witty and interesting description to this episode of the Pod-Cast, so instead, here's a factual, informative list of some of the things we talked about: liars
1. Abigail hates Blink 182.
2. Ben's fridge is broken, and can't eat various processed meats.
3. Bryan hates dogs.
4. Cameron is a bad actor.
5. Stephen is over-the-moon upset about the disappearance of the pig emotie in Skype.
Nothing in the show notes, because frankly it's a joke that's too good to not keep up with.
On this week's episode of WASD, Cameron has been playing Heroes of the Storm because the feng shui of his house isn't conditioned towards Persona 5 yet. In other news, Zachary is reviewing an obscure Vita JRPG called The Caligula Effect that he wishes everybody played, but knows they won't. Also, Fallout 4 is all kinds of garbage - that's something we can all agree on.
Music this week:
Heroes of the Storm - Smugglers Cove (The Lost Vikings 2)
Edited by Zachary.
Mr. and Mrs. Smith is already so a movie so we aren't allowed to make that the episode title but that's a real shame because it's very accurate. Dani, wife of our very own Benjamin, drops by to visit for a round of Questions, Questions, Questions: Making Dani Feel Welcome (hug). Does it work? YOU DECIDE. (Actually Dani probably decides because she's a free-thinking individual.)
The proper Skype hug:
