If a lifelong dream of yours is to listen to someone podcast into what sounds like a trumpet mute, then brace yourself, Gentle Listener, as you are about to get rocked. Hosts Jordan Wasilka, Matt McCormick, Justin McElroy, Ryan Gan, Chris Hill, Dali Dimovski, and Randall Smith deliver mixed quality audio in great quantities. In this episode: Welcome to all. Chris teaches English, maliciously, and thinks often of gaming while biking. Lego games great for all ages. Chris a teacher of Shakespeare. Peanut Gallery laughter. Justin tells us all about his two journalism awards for bidness writing. Why a theater degree is wholly unnecessary. A rude tongue-twister. Sidequesting.com update from Dali and Ryan. Jordan writing a podcast roundup on InsulinFunk, called Weekly Sound Check. Not much of an arguer. Matt catches high blood glucose, most likely from Wesley; now eating six square meals a day. Dragonslayer. Dali decorating the nursery in non-gaming theme; suggestions offered for recovering from this blunder. Randall gets a birthday present: Red Faction: Guerrilla from Dali and the folks at Sidequesting! Ryan should have bought Avatar. New Cypress News. Matt relates a real Dragonslayer, with Cooking Mama. The rest of the hosts feel dumb for complaining about food; fortunately, Shelley brings in brownies to cheer us up. A gaming abecedary. A last admission from Dali regarding photoshop fakery.

NOTE: The JPAG Show is moving. Make sure to update your feeds to http://jpag.podbean.com/feed in order to keep getting the latest. iTunes does NOT yet have the new info. If you aren't filled with loathing for the hole of a town you call your own, Gentle Listener, then listen in as hosts Alexandre Ferreira, Wesley Johnson, Randall Smith, Matt Darrow, and Marie Barnes reveal the wonders of Algarve to you, such that never again will you lie in your own bed in contentment. Just pack up and go tour the joint already, why don't you? In this episode: An opening note from the Internet's own Matt. M. Alexandre Ferreira, Tourism Policeman, gamer, podcaster, major-league human billboard for Portugal. His Brazilian connection, punctuated by a thunderous exclamation point. Driving wheels considered, both as buying and building options. Matt gets his SF Tournament stick modded. Marie is actually a girl, WoW fools; stop wasting time in the chat channel and start raiding. If you're Horde, that is; Alliance players need not apply. The dangers of glomping. Dragonslayer. A discussion of the merits of the XBLA Magic: The Gathering game. Wes goes to see his friend Dan Smith AKA "The Listener" play. Advice on how to play in Marie's D&D campaign, straight from the DM herself. A discussion had re: games that take far too long to play, and piles of gaming shame. The shameful lack of Rock Band in Portugal, and the lack of anything to be done about it. The unfair burden of translation placed on Alex by GTA and a wife who does not speak English.

May we offer you a few cosmic-ray-saturated olives, Gentle Listener? Or perhaps some radioactive matzah bread? Who knows what ethnically/religiously superpowered hijinks will ensue when chosen hosts Wesley Johnson, Jarret Green, Joel Meyerson, Randall Smith, and Tom Johnson take it way past mashugana. In this episode: Joel a biochemist, and an electron microscopist specialising in the molecular structure of viruses. Also able to reverse the bat-polarity and track cloaked starships. Joel a Tejas native, now in Maryland. More Five Guys appreciation. Tom a complete apostate for his silly stance on FFVII. Dragonslayer. Joel finds a novel way to play Uncharted with his significant other. Randall changes his mind about Prince of Persia, and changes Jarret's mind by spoiling the ending. Joel asks about getting back into fighting games. The 2009 Bulwer-Lytton fiction awards, read aloud severally. Jewish Super Heroes considered and admired, more or less. Bible man schlock found amusing. More irritation at the Oak Park Festival Theatre. Game anticipations for 2009. Long Island [re/se]ceding, a fact which does not disturb young Tom Johnson in the slightest. D&D campaign preparing; Wes names his character to connote insecurity.

If you've ever wondered why you bought that Benadryl, Gentle Listener, then tune in while hosts Wesley Johnson, Zach Tuttle, Russ Walsh, Sam Dixon, and Randall Smith induce aural motion sickness. Nobody's tough after 110 minutes of this, cargo pants or not. In this episode: A rocky start, but one that still incites envy, doesn't it, Gentle Listener? Zach Tuttle an oil rig man, and a 3D modeler to boot. The worst boat ride ever. There are no fish on the ocean floor, people: just buy the drilling equipment already. Zach a fan of derivative beat 'em ups. Sam recounts his big break in game journalism with some site Wesley has done on the side. Wesley's throat nodules huge, but hugely benign, to the relief of all. Russ creates the greatest banner ever, featuring a plushie Snufflupagus. The JPAG D&D campaign, and tales of dumb characters from campaigns past. Dragonslayer. Questionable gaming peripherals, and envy-inducing game peripherals. Day of the Tentacle recommended to those who missed it, like Zach and Randall. Appreciation for Justin's ripping the Double Helix guy a new one. Battlefield Heroes pimped big time. Randall complains about the outdoor theatre in Oak Park.

What happens when Randall leaves the show in the hands of people who run other sites and shows? This episode, that's what! Hosts Dalibor Dimovski, Chad Boyce, Ben Pack, Clayton Ashley, and Wesley Johnson will try to fill every possible moment of silence with a plug for their sites. Will it work, Gentle Listener? In this episode: Ben "Ben Pack" Pack is in fact Chris Grant, when it comes to Mass Effect impressions. Chad Boyce is freaking amazing, and has been clean for over three years. Good on ya, mate. iPhone games considered and recommended. InsulinFunk.net named a million times gratuitously. Sidequesting.com named a few times gratuitously. New Cypress News. Dali and Ryan get together in Chicago and drink with a DJ. Chad also a DJ. DJ Hero looking good, actually. Real DJs discussed. Transformers, Megan Fox discussed in a certain tasteless fashion. Other stuff I probably missed. Related links: NONE! NONE, damn your eyes! Music: Intro and outro music excerpted from "Shapes" and "Scared Straight," by The Long Winters.

Remember that madcap bunch of crazy funsters who were the X3F Fancast Defense Force? No? Well, take it from me, Gentle Listener, that show did exist once upon a time, long before the M.E.A.P., Go! Gaming Giant, or other spinoff franchises. What have they been up to lately? Find out on this episode! In this episode: The gang's all here, sort of. The Yaris jumped by a sneaky wall. Horrific run-ins with automatic glass doors. Richard tubercular no more! Randall recovers his dulcimer. Dragonslayer, featuring Holly Attesi. Patrick impressing potential employers with podcasting experience; potentially shooting himself in foot by listing Holly as reference, particularly in that he lists her job as "superhero." Go!

Once again the show has been left to the likes of not Randall, which effectively means that Alexander Bevier, Dan Diemer, James Gillard, Wesley Johnson, and Jordan Wasilka are calling the shots. And the shots they call will confound and amaze you, Gentle Listener. In this episode: Jokes, jests, and japes at Randall's expense. Alexander is not from French, but from Washingtonian. Goes to college on the cheap and writes toward an English degree. Wants to be Leonard Maltin of videogames. Dumb jokes about college names. Meet Alexander: PAX veteran, volunteer, enforcer, and Pokemon proponent. Also loves the single player experience. Dragonslayer. Knockoff toys and t-shirts. UFC game pleases Gillard, who is now resolved to take up mixed martial arts. Infamous discussed. James suggests that this is the year to take the plunge and buy a PS3. Wes agrees.

Wondering where the show's been? Working its butt off, that's where. Fortunately for you, Gentle Listener, hosts Russ Walsh, Matt Darrow, Randall Smith, Richard Elliott, and Wesley Johnson are here to fill the void, late as they are. In this episode: Matt builds planes, likes fighting games. REALLY likes fighting games. First take of this episode lost in time. Russ crayoning, and a crayoning playground bully. Richard non-plussed by conversation so far. Now running G3 podcast, and writing for Go! Gaming Giant. Also kinda tubercular. Dragonslayers, emotional and otherwise. Five Guys burgers. Terrifying and/or hilarious Youtube videos. Gillard's bike swiped anew. Parody movies. Gulliver's Travels: a compendium of excremental onomatopoeia? Swift's misanthropy exemplified. More food descriptions than you can handle. Related links:Five Guys Burgers and FriesVin Diesel on helium (Friday Night with Jonathan Ross) • Snuffleupagus's first terrifying appearanceMega Shark Vs.

Ever wonder what's it's like to go green? Then you're in luck, Gentle Listener. Hip[pie/ster] hosts Ben Udashen, Wesley Johnson, Nick Coffman, Jarret Green, and Randall Smith are here to hacky-sack with you. Indeed much of the show is dedicated to working out personal beefs/tofus. In this episode: Ben's a Dallas emigré, now residing in Olympia, Wa, and mostly games on his PC. Nick a native of Olympia now residing in Yelm, WA, and like Ben also at THE Evergreen State College. Nick is a cheapskate and only buys bargain games. Also, a bot-biased gamer. A brief appreciation of older games with bots. Great deals on Crackdown and other games at New Egg. Jarret implements Squash the Beef Friday in his classroom; has to explain concept repeatedly to un-hip students. Jarret not exactly bumping chests with fellow teachers. Jarret takes in a Flight of the Conchords concert; FoTC roundly appreciated by all. Wes returns from Spinal Tap: Unwigged & Unplugged, and provides a report. Also, meets a single flight attendant at the show. Jokes about joking about joking, at one another's expense. All roads lead to Yelm. Dragonslayer: Plants Vs. Zombies (Wes), Dragon Quest V (Ben), GTA: Chinatown Wars (Jarret), Fable II (Nick), and Crackdown (Randall). Cheap games at New Egg! Beard survey, taken and discussed. Beardlessness lamented by Nick, Jarret, and Randall; Wes and Ben content with their facial lots. Star Trek discussed. Randall recommends the Creative Screenwriting podcast with a caveat. Three out of four other hosts recommend Star Trek to Jarret; three out of four other hosts think Nick Coffman is an unappreciative clod. Star Wars One-Minute Fanfic Theatre. Nick Coffman just a bit too eager to pen Angel fanfic. Lost ending debated, and the word "poutrage" makes an appearance. Note: our hosts this week mistake the statue on the island as Anubis; it's clearly identified elsewhere as Sobek.
