Welcome back fans. We have officially returned for another episode of Topicocalypse. It's strange how in COVID-19 times everybody and their brother has started a podcast, yet, I haven't had a lot of time to maintain ours. I'm working on fixing that, but in the meantime . . . here is a brand new episode for those sweet sweet ears of yours. On this episode of Topicocalypse, we're talking the Playstation 5 vs Xbox Series X. Brett is a Sony fanboy and I am a Microsoft fanboy. Join us as we verbally duel to our metaphorical deaths over which console has better things. I hope you enjoy!

June 22, 2020

On this episode of the Internet's only podcast, I'm sitting down with my brother to talk about some religious things that I did not know about. Justin schools me on the ida of Yawehism vs a Universal God. How do our learned and inherited perceptions of God change the way we look at spirituality? What does all of this mean?

Topicocalypse One Shot - The Big O Episode 1 (Review): Roger the Negotiator

Topicocalypse One Shot - The Big O Episode 1 (Review): Roger the Negotiator

June 18, 2020

The one shot episodes are back! Or perhaps it'll be more than one if I end up reviewing the entire series, but on this episode of Topicocalypse, we're doing things a little different. Instead of four (sometimes five) idiots sitting around a table talking about things they may or may not know anything about, I will be reviewing an episode of an anime series that is very near and dear to my heart . . . The Big O.

I’ve been taking some time lately, to go back and watch the anime series I grew up with. As a novel writer, going back to my inspirations has been the key to “reawakening” my creativity, especially in these hectic times, where just stepping out your front door is like going on a walk with sorrow and depression. That being said, the noir-like world of The Big O has been a welcome distraction from the strange and terrible things going on in our society. Turning on the box-set blu ray instead of the news has proven to be the best thing I’ve done in the past few weeks.

I hope you enjoy!

What's up fans? Welcome back to another episode of Topicocalypse, the only podcast on the internet. There's a lot of strange things going on in the world today, and we want you to know that we are here for your listening pleasure. 

On this episode, we are diving into the concept of individualism vs collectivism in the era of COVID-19. Has the concept of the individual really been set aside for this virus? What is going on with all of the social media outrage? We're joined by Brian Wegner of the Super BS Gamescast and the Big Jim Pederson to discuss our thoughts. 

All of this and more on this episode of Topicocalypse.

Topicocalypse Presents: What About This (Episode 1): Objective Beauty

May 20, 2020

What's up podcast lovers. We're back, and we're doing things a little different today. Instead of listening to four idiots talk about things they may or may not know anything about, we're going to play a podcast belonging to some friends of ours.

Welcome to the What About This Podcast! On the first episode ever, Travis, Ryan, Keith and Kyle consider whether there is such thing as objective beauty. Together, we discuss how we judge beauty, where our ideas of beauty might come from, if taste is the same thing as beauty, and the differences between subjectivity, objectivity, and relativity.

We hope you enjoy!
