A podcast featuring word games, trivia, classic board games, and even a few reimagined classic game shows from years gone by. We rotate through several different games, with different hosts, from episode to episode. What they all have in common is chat, humor, and fun.


It Is I, The Deceptor!

Low Definition

It’s time for more Low Definition, the game show that builds your word power! But with poop jokes! We also investigate government agencies, ponder the final words of French philosophers, and ponder some questionable input from the users of Google.

The Murder Edition

UK Triv

Death, destruction, slaughter, and a bit more death — and that’s just the questions. Once again, Antony Johnston gathers a panel of north Americans to play a British edition of Trivial Pursuit, and it gets dark…

Antony Johnston with Erika Ensign, Steven Schapansky, David J. Loehr and Quinn Rose


Non-Quadruped Thaumaturgy

Game Night

This is the first episode of a new game show, Are You The Spy? Panelists must name clues that point to potential topics like Bigfoot, Transfiguration, or the Fast and the Furious movie franchise. One spy doesn’t know the topic they’re trying to discuss, and must figure it out before the rest of the group figures them out. In this episode, players put their knowledge (or lack thereof) of cryptids, Hogwarts classes, blockbuster franchises, and Cats (2019) to good use.

If you would like to play along as a civilian and know the topic words that the spies are trying to guess, click here to see the answers. If you would like to play along as the spy, just start listening!

Quinn Rose with Brian Hamilton, Mois├ęs Chiullan, Jean MacDonald, Tony Sindelar, Monty Ashley and James Thomson


Wayne Gretzky

Random Pursuit

From Wild, swingin’ Swaziland to the frozen north of Canada, there’s nothing better than getting a bunch of friends together to play trivia games — even when Trivial Pursuit changes how its own cards work. AGAIN.

Erika Ensign with Monty Ashley, Annette Wierstra, Kathy Campbell, Steve Lutz and Sage Young


Three of the Four Have Been to Space


Welcome back to “Inconceivable!”, the show that tests two teams’ knowledge of the nerdy, the useless, and the obscure.

In our latest episode, our teams test their knowledge of suspiciously similar spies, things that don’t fit a pattern, and classic ’80s sci-fi/fantasy/horror movies…with a twist. Kathy Campbell, Annette Wierstra, and Tony Sindelar face off against Antony Johnston, Jean MacDonald, and Erika Ensign for the crown.

Dan Moren and Lex Friedman with Kathy Campbell, Annette Wierstra, Tony Sindelar, Antony Johnston, Jean MacDonald and Erika Ensign


That Seems Naughty

Parsely (Action Castle)

A new Parsely adventure? It’s a Christmas miracle! We take a tour of the North Pole and try to save Christmas by entering basic commands into a human parser. What secrets lie in the Candy Cane Forest? Who lives atop Yeti Mountain? What is Mary Claus’s marital status? Tis the season!

Tony Sindelar with Jason Snell, Aleen Simms, Chip Sudderth, Monty Ashley, Annette Wierstra and Brian Hamilton


Canadian Crime Fighting Beaver

Turns Out!

Turns Out returns, as we take a look at toys that caused holiday riots like Tickle Me Elmo, the Cabbage Patch Kids, and Barbara the Beaver. You don’t know Barbara the Beaver? Maybe you’ve heard of Flirting Flossie? What is the liquid filled dice agitator and why is it so popular? Ask again later.

David J. Loehr with Tiffany Arment, Kelly Guimont and Annette Wierstra


Gobble Search

Low Definition

Your favorite game of bad words and even worse definitions is back! In this mildly Thanksgiving-themed episode of Low Definition, Steve reveals a surprising co-host, we learn about other cultures, and discover that something is rotten in Denmark’s movie theaters. Join gobble us, won’t you?

Steve Lutz with Dan Moren, Kathy Campbell, Tiffany Arment, Brian Hamilton and Jason Snell


The Michelangelo of Space Alpaca Raising

Game Night

We return to Fiasco, featuring a visit to Space Station 119, generally considerd the bus station of space stations. From there, a complicated web of intrigue is spun, involving alpacas, poison gas, a hammer, and a very elusive piece of paperwork. Space paperwork.

Tony Sindelar with Kelly Guimont, Cicero Holmes, Dan Moren and Monty Ashley


Resources and Wood and Stuff


Let’s play TL;DR, the game of hasty summaries and reckless connections! Two teams compete against each other, and the clock, to show off how little they know about anything that isn’t Marvel. Watch out for Quinn’s surprising deep cuts, and a new ‘Lizzing’ record!

Antony Johnston with Jason Snell, Quinn Rose, Lizbeth Myles and Jean MacDonald


Luxuriating with Lord Spooky

Parsely (Action Castle)

You stop your bicycle by a forbidding wrought-iron gate. A cobblestone path winds its way to the north. To the east and west stretches a dark and lonely road. It is raining.

Tony Sindelar with Annette Wierstra, Dan Moren, Monty Ashley and Brian Hamilton
