Episode 28 : A Pronunciation Guide to Celtic Mythos (not really…)

Episode 28 : A Pronunciation Guide to Celtic Mythos (not really…)

This week, your favorite hosts (or hosts you tolerate) discuss Celtic mythology and legends. Ever wondered what is the origin story of the fairies? Ever truly wanted to mispronounce an entire language? In this episode, we’ve got you, and we may have figured out where the phrase “keeping your cool” originates. No, no one googled to see if we were correct; we are content in our illogical conjecture.

Make sure to check out our other episodes where we don’t insult an entire culture’s language, and leave us a review on your favorite podcast platform! We’re everywhere!

We also compare classic stories with its pop culture counterparts, and discuss the differences and similarities in entertainment such as God of War, Xena, and beyond!

      Episode 26: Schrodinger’s Podcast

      Episode 26: Schrodinger’s Podcast

      In our last segment in the multiverse we take on iterations and variations of characters, comics, stories, and ourselves. What does diversity in the multiverse mean when it comes to inclusion and how has culture changed to accommodate the changing landscape of America’s culture? It’s true; we wax serious in this episode. But don’t worry; Bawoo managed to hit the surge protector and restart our comedic “genius.”

            Episode 23: The Simpsons Creator is a Time Traveler?!

            Episode 23: The Simpsons Creator is a Time Traveler?!

            We’re back from our holiday hiatus with our “second” season and a whole new way to rotate! The Free Rotation is taking on the “multiverse” in our first rotation of the new year, kicking off with our episode about all of the predictions made by the creator of The Simpsons, Matt Groening. Some predictions can be chalked up to coincidence, but some of the predictions we delve into convince our hosts that it’s very possible that The Simpsons are predicting the future. Bonus content includes discussions on sci-fi TV, Quantum Physics, and why the biggest travesty yet is the blown 28-3 lead by the Falcons (as predicted by The Simpsons).

            If you’d like to throw a topic into the rotation for our hosts to discuss, don’t forget to check us out on Facebook at The Free Rotation Podcast, Twitter @thefreerotation, Youtube at The Free Rotation, and Twitch at TheFreeRotation!

            We are also on Patreon at The Free Rotation Podcast, and you can check out more great podcasts on the We Be Geeks Network.

              S1B3: Net Neutrality

              S1B3: Net Neutrality

              With special guests Ninja Dan and the toucher of Scoob’s “wee wee” Kayla, we discuss net neutrality and the vote occurring on December 14 in the US- what exactly it is, the implications it could (and probably will) have, the trailer for Avengers, and Moreland’s genitalia. This episode be prepared for a healthy dose of seriousness as net neutrality is a concern that shouldn’t be taken lightly; no one should remain neutral on net neutrality. Also, five bucks says Scoob cries at the new Avengers movie.

              For more of the rotation, check us out on Facebook at The Free Rotation Podcast, Twitter @thefreerotation, and YouTube and Twitch at TheFreeRotation, unless net neutrality is abolished, then you can find us behind a paywall!

                S1 Bonus Episode Part 2: Exploring the Lost “Fear” Episode

                S1 Bonus Episode Part 2: Exploring the Lost “Fear” Episode

                We delve into our experiences from the Lost Episode, which was the podcast’s take on MTV’s “Fear.” What was initially a silly episode in which we thought nothing would come out of it other than funny stories and maybe an experience or two turned into something darker and scarier. Similar to being stranded on a purgatorial island, we reflect on what happened and why it’s affected us so much. You may be tempted to disbelieve or brush off our experiences but we encourage you to listen with open minds. Also, be sure to ask for the haunted Ouija board (we all don’t want anything to do with it ever again).

                      Episode 18 : Barbarians and Badasses, Raging Roleplays and Roll Plays

                      Episode 18 : Barbarians and Badasses, Raging Roleplays and Roll Plays

                      Aaron, our friend and resident actual barbarian, joins us for an in-depth discussion into the differences between roleplay and roll play and how the two are often intrinsically related to one another. Everyone plays an active role even in their own life but luckily we have games where we can roll stats to suit the role we wish to play, whether it’s stat build domination or putting the character in the character. Don’t let the big words and excellent punctuation fool you- this episode is filled with the chicanery and levels of goblin speak to which you are accustomed.

                        Episode 17: Plunging the Depps, Movies and Their Origin Stories

                        In this episode, join the Free Rotation hosts as we talk about movies vs their original form (books, manga, video games, series). Admittedly, this is an enormous topic but we are small minded enough to narrow it down to the ones that no one cares about- except us! How did books to movies like The Giver, IT, and Twilight stand up… wait.. did we talk about that?! The answer is fifty shades of “oh, yes, we did!”

                              Episode 14: Ringing the Diggle’s Doorhell : The Creation of the Perfect Sandwich

                              To put on a sandwich or not to put on a sandwich? That is truly the most time honored and sacred of questions. What even constitutes a sandwich? No, we aren’t joking; we take our sandwiches as seriously as we take our games. Do you feel lemon zest will bring out the flavor of your tuna salad? Will armageddon break out over the battle between Miracle Whip and Mayonnaise? It’s all part of the elusive search for the perfect, defined sandwich.

                              Shout out to The Club: A Sandwich Podcast as the inspiration for our sandwich exploration, and we are proud to announce we are now a part of the WeBeGeeks Podcast network! For more geeky-related podcast content, check it out at: http://www.webegeekspc.com.

                                The Free Rotation’s first eSports event as a unit, first time all sharing the same hotel room, and first time Scoob came extremely close to death. Join us as we share our experiences and impressions as well as pick up some pretty sweet interviews! Scarra even gave us our intro!  DreamHack Atlanta was a blast, and we hope to see it return to our area once again. Hopefully, next time, someone will remember to bring their breathe right strips…
