Episode 76: Pokemon Go and the Library



Everything you always wanted to know about Pokemon Go and why people are coming to the library to play. Jess and Beth, who are big fans, explain it all to Suzanne, who is not very familiar with Pokemon at all.

This is the Time article we mention about a man who has a house that is a Pokemon Go Gym.
And this is an article about the creator of Pokemon.

Episode 74: Hey! Listen! #8 - Harvest Moon




Today we talk about one of our favorite franchises: Harvest Moon (now called Story of Seasons - and we get into why the series name changed in this episode). This classic farm sim game paved the road for tons of very popular games, so we go back and review the series from the beginning, including what made the series so unique and what made the individual games so awesome. This is a criminally underrated game series, so hopefully we do it justice and make a good case for why everyone should at least give it a shot!

Episode 71 - Hey! Listen! #7 - Deadpool Movie Spoilercast



Today we talk about everyone’s favorite Merc with a Mouth -- Deadpool. Michael and I are celebrating the release of the movie on DVD and Blu-Ray by getting deep into our feelings about it -- what we liked, what we didn’t; what we thought was totally awesome, and what was maybe a little disappointing. But all in all, I think we conclude that it is totally fun and absolutely worth watching.

Note: this is a spoilercast. You have been warned.

Have we inspired you to watch Deadpool? Put it on hold here.

Episode 70: Hey! Listen! #6: Studio Ghibli



Today we discuss the amazing movies of Studio Ghibli, and Japanese film director, producer, screenwriter, animator, author, and artist extraordinaire, Hayao Miyazaki. We go through our favorites, what we like about each one, common themes that cross a lot of Miyazaki movies, and things that are maybe a little strange. And, very importantly, Michael tries to explain to me the ending of Princess Mononoke and convince me that it doesn’t invalidate the message of the rest of the movie. But mostly, we gush about how great all these movies are!

Have we inspired you to give any of these movies a try? Here are all the Miyazaki videos OCLN has available to borrow - try one, try em all!
