Factoid of the Week:
An axe can be used for a variety of moves due to the curved shape of the head:  The axe head can be used to hook an opponent’s ankle, thus throwing them off balance and onto the ground.  It can be also hooked over another body part such as the neck, to force a person to move in a direction they don’t want to go.  The axe can also be used to hook the edge of a shield, pulling it away to press an attack, or to disarm the opponent.

Episode 508 – Pounding Us Full of Science

Courtesy of Jole Aron

It’s been another week in the plaguelands, but we’re making it through! Not only that, we managed to pull in a bunch of stories that have nothing to do with a virus! We did learn that Ashley is violent, and that both of us managed to get a pass tonight on not answering a question. You’ll have fun. Give it a listen.

Factoid of the Week:
The word ‘curry’ in a gastronomic sense is thought to derive from the Tamil ‘karil’, which was a sauce served with rice.  However, the phrase “to give curry” is Australian slang for abusing or expressing anger at someone.

Episode 507 – Hammer It Back Home

This quarantine has been a real bear for everyone, but we’re working our way through it together. We here at the Orbiting HQ truly hope you and yours are doing fine and everything is going alright. If not, all we can really provide is a few laughs and maybe a distraction or two while we all descend into madness. At least we can go there together!

Episode 505 – Validated, Justified, and Always Right

Oh man! What a big week this was. We got a new baby in the family! That’s right. Smash finally had her kid and he’s awesome. We talked about that quite a bit on the show, but don’t you worry! We also did some news and it was fantastic. This was a great episode. You’re going to dig it!

Factoid of the Week:
Newborns spend half their sleep time in REM, accompanied by jerking eyeballs, twitching bodies and a characteristic saw-toothed pattern on brain scans. For comparison, adults spend just one quarter of their sleeping time in REM and the rest in the dreamless non-REM phase, marked by slowly varying brain waves. If babies dream during REM, then they would dream for the equivalent of a full eight-hour workday.

Episode 400 – AGAIN

The Road to 500 continues with Episode 400! We had a great time on this one and I hope you guys dig it. It was a glorious time during the show and we were entering a new era of our podcasting careers at the time.

You’re gonna dig it!

Episode 300 – REDUX

Hey folks! Here’s the deal. We’re all dead here. Dead with a capital “EAD” if you know what I mean.

Since we’re all dead, we’ve had to pivot to a new plan. We can’t do Episode 500 and give it the attention it deserves when our heads are full of crud. So we’ve invented a new idea.

ROAD TO 500!!

That’s right. It’s a different idea, but a good one nonetheless. We’re re-releasing a couple episode between now and 500. This week, you get the joyful Episode 300! Next week, you’ll get 400, and the week after we’ll be back live with 500. We think it’s going to be great, and you’ll have a good time walking down memory lane with us.

Have fun!

The Bennie Ball Interview

A few nights back we had the privilege of interviewing Bennie Ball! Who is he? Well, he’s the guy that defended his apartment, and possibly his own life, with a dungeon axe! An assailant barged into Bennie’s apartment and he took matters into his own hands.

Bennie is a rad human being, and we had such a good time chatting with him. We hope you enjoy it!
