This week on the podcast, we discuss our favorite kinds of candy, J.J. Abrams working with Valve, some suggestions on how to handle friends who get angry while playing games, and when its appropriate to take pictures of cosplayers. We also have an interesting challenge for our faithful listeners of the podcat - suggest new titles for us to use (because stuff like "Managing Editor" and "Video Editor" can be kinda boring)!

The cast this week: Susan Arendt, Justin Clouse, Paul Goodman and Greg Tito.
