006 | The LEGO Life w/ Matt Ulvila

LEGO Loving Fools

It's been over a year in post-production but I'm finally getting this episode out! Once again, apologies to Mr. Ve6a5 for slacking so much. But hey, if you're a fan of LEGO, this one's for you! 

Matt has been building bricks since he was a kid. Me, not so much, but that doesn't stop us from going on about one of our favorite hobbies. It may be a little dated, talking about sets that come out "next year" and now listening to it they are already on shelves, but you can't put an age on the passion! 

We went on about earliest memories building sets, what our favorites are, why we love collecting, the LEGO video games, and more! It was definitely a fun time talking to Matt and I hope one day he'll join me again for an updated show that I promise to put out in a more timely manner haha.

005 | Quarantine Crossing w/ Beardy

As Long As We Got Each Other

WELCOME to episode 5! FIVE! That's so exciting and so sad at the same time. It's ok though, because as long as we got each other, we got the world spinnin' right in our hands. Yeah, that does sound familiar, doesn't it? Guess you'll have to listen to figure it out. 

Speaking of listening, it wouldn't be a podcast in 2020 without talking about the pandemic and quarantine living! Beardy McWhiskey, the man who broke up with me and ended our previous podcast is back for another episode of The Talking Place. We discuss a few things, but we focused on what's new with us as we live the quarantine life. We talk about why you're an asshat if you don't wear a mask, Beardy walked us through making an Old Fashioned, and to liven up the mood we talked games! A few were mentioned, along with our thoughts on next gen, but Animal Crossing stood out, of course. 

A few things were mentioned but no details were given during this episode:

I'm starting to stream games more! I've put Animal Crossing and Pokemon down for a bit and figured I needed to get my survival instincts up. So I've been playing Fortnite and Destiny 2 and streaming it when I do. Nothing crazy, I just hit broadcast and go from there. So check me out on Twitch and subscribe if you'd like. 

Lastly, there's a new voicemail number! I talked about it and how it's new but I never gave it out. So if you want to give the show a call to say hi or whatever, it's (407)906-TALK!

BONUS | The Black Friday Call-in

It's the first call-in show! This week's bonus episode is focused on Black Friday. I sit down all by my onesies and talk about BF and deals and memories and such, recollecting times when I would break night in a line just to save a few bucks. MAN, I love Black Friday. Even though it's technically like all week now, but whatever. I also touch on my thoughts about BF spilling into Thanksgiving, which will always suck but it is what it is. 

It wouldn't be a call-in show without some call-ins so I'd like to thank @RetroRentsAL from The Retro Rents Podcast for being the first to call in and talk Black Friday. Also like to thank Maffia-Thug, co-founder of Veteran Gamers and EZFM community member, for chiming in as well! This was the first time doing this and it was a very spur of the moment thing with not too much notice so the call-ins were appreciated.

If you'd like to get on one of these Call-in bonus shows, just leave a voicemail when I let you know on twitter. Contrary to what I said on the show, I JUST discovered how to make a personalized number. Of course, they're charging for it now when it used to be free. But my OCD is too annoying for me to not pay it just for a proper voicemail line. So look for the new number on twitter when it goes live! 

So if you'd like to follow on twitter, you can go ahead right here @TheTalkingPlace.

Or if you'd like to email you can do so at talkingplacepod@gmail.com.

And be sure to check out Episode 4 of The Talking Place where Beardy McWhiskey, DeviousMrMatt, and myself talk all things Thanksgiving!

Until next show!

004 | The Thanksgiving Meal w/ Matt and Beardy

Eat all the things!

 

Welcome to episode 4 of The Talking Place! It's all about Thanksgiving this week and it's going to be just as tasty as you're expecting. We're going over the entire meal - starters, entrees, sides, desserts, everything - and we're not apologizing for making you hungry. We also talk about our traditions, things we're always cooking or eating every year, it's just a packed episode full of Thanksgivingness.

Joining me is Beardy McWhiskey and DeviousMrMatt once again. They joined me in episode 2 where we talked all about smoking meats, so be sure to check that out if you haven't! I love talking food with these two because there's a ton of experience between them when it comes to feeding their families or others. So it's much appreciated them joining me once again.

I hope you enjoy the fourth episode of The Talking Place! Have a happy Thanksgiving!

Bonus | The History of Pokémon with Chase

I choose you!

Welcome to the first bonus episode of The Talking Place! I'm sure I'll have a lot more to do with these bonus episodes in the future, but this one won't disappoint! 

In this bonus show you'll hear Chase again, from the Learned From Gaming Podcast. He goes through the history of Pokémon. All his experience, his memories, everything. It's the perfect accompaniment to today, the release day of Pokémon Sword and Shield!

Again, a huge thanks to both Chase for recording this and agreeing to share, and to Fred Rojas from Gaming History 101 for also allowing to share this episode with The Talking Place! This was originally recorded specifically for his podcast, Gaming History 101, but was shared with us here, just as episode 3 of The Talking Place was shared with them. There's a lot of cross pollination going on here, and you can thank Pokémon for that! 

Be sure to check out the links below for all of Fred and Chase's info and where to find them!
