Episode 35: Scary Stories and Spousal Transformations…

Don’t lie, these images still scare the shit out of you.

In 1981 Alvin Schwartz published a book that would forever change the face of children’s literature. Scary Stories to tell in the dark is one of the books most beloved by children and beguiled by adults for its visceral tales and nightmarish illustrations.We had a chance to interview the producer of an upcoming documentary about this hallowed literature and its author.

Episode 30 – What if the events of the Mega Man/Mega Man X universe actually happened?

Childhood ruined? Or Childhood got waaay more awesomer?

We have a fun/interesting one for you this episode guys.  The sprawling and surprisingly deep lore of the classic video game series, Mega Man.  It’s a subject near and dear to Jbats’ heart, one which a lot of people would agree needed exploring.  We use that lens to explore the idea of what would happen if robots became self-aware and the ethical worries that might evoke.  So get cozy, diagnostics on this new model are gonna take some time to learn how hard it is to be human…
