Official Release Schedule

Now We Release on Sundays!

Starting this week (or technically next week, I guess) we will start releasing our episodes on Sunday nights.

We made this change because I usually edit each episode as furiously as possible on Thursday nights and, running on about 3 hours of sleep the next day, yell at the players until they give it their approval for me to release on Friday.

It's killing me.

It's also a stupid idea to release on Fridays. You release things you don't want people to pay attention to on Fridays. And I want you to pay attention to this.

So now when you wake up hungover to the sound of your 4 year old daughter running loose around the house long before the sun comes up and you check your phone to find out in what way the universe will atmospherically punish you on your way into work, your phone will notify you that, during your restless slumber, its gone ahead and downloaded the new episode of This Game Could Be Your Life for you to listen to on your bleary-eyed, maybe-a-bit-too-hungover-to-be-operating-a-vehicle style commute to work.

We'll be there for you.

But only if you subscribe.


We just finished updating the site for your mobile devices!

Now, instead of thumbing halfway down the page before giving the fuck up and going to for "all your cast-iron erotic needs," you can actually use the site the way a "normal" desktop/laptop-wielding powernerd would.

We've added a totally awesome menu icon and direct links to iTunes and Google Play. They're right at your fingertips, quite literally, so go tap them tenderly the next time you're bored on the toilet.

That's where everyone listens to podcasts right?

That's not just a "me thing" is it?

We're Live!

O.M.G. this is such an honor. I have so many people to thank. I didn't prepare a speech or anything, so I'm just going to wing it.

I'd like to thank the immortal Steve Jobs for having the vision to build the worlds very first robotic, mechanized computing device all those years ago, in 1719. I'd also like to thank everyone's favorite pulsating, omniscient brain-in-the-sky Google for not destroying us long enough to publish our podcast.

And Stitcher who, too, seems relevant in this context.

As for the others, there are too many to name here. They are, however, listed on the side of this page. They're all great. They all made me feel more like a man than my first love.

I owe it all to you, soulless megacorps. May your powerful, draconic owners let us live long enough to watch our children become your corporate drones.
