    Oh wow didn’t realize you guys were back at it, time for a marathon.

  • Yup! At least, we’re trying to be.

    Hey Shidoshi!

    After one hell of a long binge of the entirety of all things WAHP, I am finally all caught up. I have to say, I am honored that you all have been so forthcoming with us as an audience, and willing to share such important parts of your lives with us. With yourself becoming the YOU that you have always wanted to be, Nick embracing his furriness and Casey being the proud papa, it really solidifies why you are so awesome. THANK YOU for feeling that you can be who you are with us; I respect that courage immensely.

    And Shidoshi, your journey to finding your own happiness made me tear up, I don’t mind telling you; I’m glad that you have found a way to put the pieces together in a way that make sense to you in life…finding that aspect of yourself that allows you to be who you are. Life is way too damn short to please the haters, so fuck ’em; anyone worth a damn cares about you for you, and is happy for what path you choose for yourself. I wish everyone would focus on what makes them find peace with their lives.

    …not that you need some cisgender preening from me or anything; I know that you’re way stronger than that. I just thought that I would, in my own overly-wordy way, lend what words of support and encouragement that I could. You’re all awesome, and deserve the best.

    Ok, enough from me. See you around the ol Information Superhighway!

  • Thank you so much for the kind words. I really wasn’t sure how people who didn’t know about my situation would take finding out, so it means a lot to receive support from people like you. 🙂

  • some stupid japanese name

    First Nick threw us for a loop, and now Shidoshi makes us all do a spit take. If the trend of each revelation being more shocking than its predecessor continues, I can’t wait for Casey’s turn!

    Great episode as always, and I’m glad 2/3 of you are in a place that you feel comfortable and safe sharing who you really are.

    So wow, you actually kept to the schedule. Hell must be having one brutal ass winter right about now.

    But seriously, amazing cast. Based on voice tone alone it seems like Nick is actually a bit better these days despite his crash from the game industry. I remember back around episode 21 or so when he started his decline. That was damn sad stuff. He is still clearly bitter and jaded but at least he seems to be on the upswing. Casey always holding strong, seems like the most stable of your get-along-gang since ever. And Shidoshi; yeah, I think I called the TRANSformation like a couple years ago actually in an emaiI sent to WAHP from a now defunct addy. I figure if someone can figure that out with only gamefan editorials and podcasts as a their source of interaction, I can’t understand how ANYONE who deals with you face to face would be blindsided by this.

    On that note, personally, I think that things like that are hard-coded from birth. It’s a hardware design thing, not a software app. I remember when I was in highschool there was this guy, let’s call him “Scott”. Scott wore sweaters with extra long arms the tip of which he would chew on all day long, while talking super soft and walking really really… different than any other guy. Now, I figured he was gay, and a few other people did too (which yeah, he is), but the thing is he had been this way as long as ANYONE could remember. He was never abused, never underwent any kind of odd trauma or anything so rule those theories out (for those who may prescribe to that) he was just born that way, hardcoded from the manufacturer. So yeah, everyone has their own stuff to deal with from the other world to this one from sexuality issues to anger to addiction to whatever is confusing you in your life. And just for the record I do not equate confusing with wrong, I just say confusing because life does not come with a very comprehensive instruction manual.

    Anyway, thank God for your cast. I have said it before and say it again, that the three of you are essentially the hardest of the core when it comes to legacy gaming opinion related to current day trends in not only games, but also Japanese cultural trends form a gaijin perspective. I swear that all of the shit you emote upon resonates with my soul on a scary level. Like the Utena reference. I mean, who the hell even gets that in today’s anime scene??? Anime has changed SO much since the proliferation of the internet, and mostly for the worse. That’s a cast in and of itself.

    And I need to say something here. Don’t worry about just talking about games. I think that most fans of the cast would love to hear about stuff beyond games. This latest cast was one of my favorites. just keep it going in whatever manner you can. So in like 3 months when Nick gets busy because he gets a stable job and you can only cast once a year just who cares, keep it going.

    This is long enough.

    OK…been trying to place that song Nick starts singing and it is driving me crazy lol…what is that from?

  • Thomas W

    Never mind…I remember now. Ashamed, but I remember now…
