For the seventh year in a row, I’m published a roundup of every game I played in the past year. Last year, I experimented with going beyond the “one sentence” format; I felt it had become overly constraining, particularly since this has been my only substantial piece of game writing for the last few years (not […]
It’s 2019, and that means it’s time for a new year of inappropriate jokes, adorable friendship, and rambling about media. In this special vacation episode – recorded on site in Sacramento – Joanna & Dylan discuss fabulous zines, the world’s greatest obituary, and an email from Dylan’s mom. Joanna analyzes Dylan’s taste in music, and Dylan […]
In the final episode of 2018, our hosts recount the series of unfortunate events that delayed this episode, and discuss what constitutes “good acting” in films. Dylan talks about a hyper-nerdy competition he runs, and gives a retrospective of Thief: The Dark Project on its 20th anniversary. Joanna discusses a lovely book about writing from Phillip […]
These are my hundred favorite feature films, as of November 2018, presented unranked in alphabetical order. A few notes:

In the pilot episode of A Possibility of Opinions, listeners get two whole hours of the very particular humor Joanna and Dylan share, as they discuss games, books, politics, life, and how Patrick Stewart is still sexy.
NB: This episode was recorded on location with a single mic, so please forgive some audio wonkiness. Future episodes will […]
This is a response to Joanna’s previous letter.
Thanks for running with my idea! As usual, your arguments are more poetic than mine, though some of what you write is too ephemeral for me to grok – can you expand on the whole ‘charming chads chatting’ thing? I honestly haven’t listened to many podcasts, and […]
For the last month, we’ve been kicking around the idea of starting a podcast. You suggested fleshing this out in the public sphere, so here’s my attempt.
If we were doing a proper pitch in an attempt to get funding, we’d have to answer the questions “Why you? Why this? What will make your podcast […]
For the fifth year in a row, I’m writing a few sentences about every game I played this year. Last year I experimented with not restricting myself to a single sentence, and found it resulted in giving games a fairer shake, so this annual series will just be “Short Notes” going forward. Every year, I promise […]
