The B Show - A Game To End All Games

The B Show - A Game To End All Games

A spoilerific episode in which Ben & Liam discuss, in detail, the new Marvel movie, Avengers: Endgame. We talk about deaths, character arcs, actor's contracts and much, much more. Suffice to say, if you give a damn about spoilers maybe leave this episode until you've seen the film, yeah?

The B Show - Any Good Books?

In this episode of The B Show Ben & Liam discuss books and authors they've enjoyed in the past and other's they look forward to indulging in. Liam reveals too much about his problematic brain, and Ben takes control of a book store.

THE CONVERSATION HAT PODCAST - Se3ep15 ft. Ready Up

In this episode we discuss the creepiness of Punch & Judy shows; games we’re looking forward to and alternate funeral ideas

THE CONVERSATION HAT PODCAST – SE3EP13, ft Ben's Dad

Ben's Dad makes his seasonal return to The Conversation Hat Podcast to chat about lightsabers, crappy job interview questions and much more besides. Ben's Dad doesn't want to plug anything, he just likes having a chat.

====================================

SHOW NOTES

As briefly touched-upon in the podcast, lightsabers in the Star Wars franchise are powered by Kyber Crystals which also determine the colour of the blade. The crystals are harvested by young Jedi and the process turns the crystal to a specific colour. Sith and Dark-Side users, rather than harvesting the crystals in the "proper" way, will dominate them which turns the colour to red - hence all the evil dudes having red swords. You can read more about Kyber Crystals and much, much more Star Wars lore, (there's lots), over on Wookiepedia.

For music fans, we're updating the way our Patreon rewards work slightly - specifically the free music downloads. Anyone and everyone will now be able to listen to music from the show, (on SoundCloud, for example), but downloads will remain a patron-only reward. Log in to Patreon to learn how to access your downloads.

Se2 Outtakes & Bloopers

We're about to enter our 3rd year - crickey! You don't get that much podcasting done without breaking a few omelettes though, and these are those omelettes! .... Yes... By omelettes, we mean bloopers, outtakes and stuff which didn't make the regular episodes for whatever reason.

Thanks to all the guests who've made this a special series for us. We're super grateful to them, and really excited about who we've booked for se3.

The Conversation Hat Podcast will return for it's 3rd series in March of 2018.
