About the Podcast
From the smoldering ashes that was the Screaming Heretic, a new podcast emerges. Their wish is to create a new society of devoted listeners and spread the word of gaming, movies, and all forms of geekery. Join the chaotic revolution that is Anonymous Tabletop.
Dave – Playing games with street toughs at a very early age to make ends meet, Dave tried his hand at hustling in games of Monopoly. He still has nightmares of those early days.. Yet somehow, while very seldom winning, Dave still remains an avid gamer and willing to play any game you put in front of him. Dave is a huge fan of movies of all kinds but does tend to prefer sci-fi, fantasy and horror. Speaking of horror, he has always had a strange fascination with Halloween. Something about pretending to be something strange and bizarre really resonates with him. Somewhat fitting since he’s been told he’s pretty strange and bizarre the other 364 days of the year. For that reason alone, he’s branched out to cosplay and prop making year round.
Tim – MightyTim is larger than life and twice as pleasurable. Known for grabbing the wheel and steering the conversation off the cliffs of mundanity, through the valley of jocularity, and occasionally all the way into the deep end of Lake WTF. He is a mechanical engineer who owns and operates the 3rd oldest dental instrument factory in the United States. He has a life-long passion for Hot Rods, Muscle Cars, video games, Star Wars, 40K, Fallout, D&D, plastic models, scratch building, kit bashing, the occasional pseudo-recognizable sculpture, gluing himself to himself, and Fruity Girl Drinks (he even brings his own paper umbrellas). Only MightyTim is willing to screw up the space time continuum for a laugh.
Katie – Forced into military school at a young age, Katie quickly earned commendations for poor marksmanship and blind obedience. She retired from the army after an unfortunate friendly fire incident. She went to live in a tree house on a lush moon where she cooked exotic meals for her furry neighbors and sat out under the exploding stars while singing cheerful tribal tunes. Also, don’t get on her bad side..
Jean – Jean aka Jane Doe. My love for board games and table top games started from an early age. We would receive games for Christmas that the whole family could play: Raise the Titanic, Clue, Monopoly, Life, Solar Quest and Hero Quest to name a few. Add to that my love of Jim Henson’s Labyrinth and Fraggle Rock in my formative years and you had a recipe for a geek for life.
Lathan – Torchmaster/Gamer/Comicbook Guy/tech geek I am you average geek. It started with Lego blocks and computers them branched to the rest of geekdome, RPGs, tabletop and board games, Anime. You get the idea. Anyway this is a brief glimpse into a small section of my life. Enjoy the show.
Joe – Crazy evil ex-boss gamer nerd. When not painting mini’s, attending cons, or building the new and improved skynet for world domination Joe enjoys travels, the arts, and spending time with friends. In the past Joe started and ran a 40k/Hobby podcast called Screaming Heretic for a few years. Now he’s just a nerd with a mission…..
Rio – been role playing for 30 plus years either table top, D&D, Shadow Run, Rifts, Star Frontiers and so on. Got into LARP for about 12 years and ran a Region for the Camarilla back in the day. I have only been into War Gaming for 3 years but enjoy all parts of the hobby. Really trying to learn more about painting and modelling. These days I just try to fit my hobby into my busy work schedule so that is about all!
Welcome to Anonymous Tabletop Episode 40.
In this milestone 40th episode Katie gets Schweddy when she channels NPR, Tim doesn’t have any hobby updates but Lathan more than makes up for it, and Amazon thinks Dave has some very specific tastes in novels.
Then, we talk about upcoming conventions, movies and TV shows when we take a geeky look forward into 2020, we mock our northerly neighbors, and Tim breaks his mic in the middle of the show – Again…
And finally, Shut Up and Take My Money makes a Dark Return, Katie goes a bit Mad when Geeky Jean takes an episode off, and Celebrity Deathmatch uses the Force when weed killer would probably do.
Oh, and don’t forget Tim’s Sack. After all these episodes, Dave really wishes he could.
Welcome to Anonymous Tabletop Episode 39.
In this estrogen filled Thanksgiving episode Tim embraces his feminine side, Jean breaks out her Bedazzler while trying to avoid Rihanna’s lawyers, and Dave turns to the big and small screen when Katie steals all of his hobby updates.
Then, we actually manage to talk about some games when we discuss which ones to bring to our Thanksgiving get-togethers, but not before Dave’s accused of mansplaining – Again…
And finally, Shut Up and Take My Money gets all sweaty, Geeky Jean takes the podcast off to take some art lessons, and Celebrity Deathmatch talks turkey about a very famous fat man..
Oh, and don’t forget Tim’s Sack. I know we’re thankful we only have to deal with that once a month.
Welcome to Anonymous Tabletop Episode 38.
In our 4th Annual Halloween episode Tim tries to be spooky but fails with some very lackluster intros, Lathan’s update is so long it needs a top ten list and a speed round, and Jean takes a nostalgic trip to Thra and talks about some Gelflings.
Then, we find out who among the crew deserves to wear the crown when Dave breaks out the buzzers for another horror movie trivia contest in the much-anticipated return of The Addams Family Feud.
And finally, we plug a truly terrible Halloween decoration, Geeky Jean plays favorites, and Celebrity Deathmatch welcomes back a previous champion when he’s forced to pick on someone his own size.
Oh, and don’t forget Tim’s Sack. It’s just scary the things we always seem to find lurking in there.
Welcome to Anonymous Tabletop Episode 37.
In this episode we welcome the Wappels back to the show, Katie tells Dave to go outside when she insults his “Stink Room”, and Tim gets in trouble with Katie and Cathy when he can’t tell his Kathryns apart.
We then talk about Reapercon and Protospiel, Lathan Skypes in from his bedroom when his car breaks down, and Tim’s wife Nancy tells us that everything sounds sexier if you say it with a French accent.
And last but not least, Geeky Jean does a balancing act, Shut Up and Take My Money gets squishy just in time for Halloween, Celebrity Deathmatch smells a bit funny, and Tim’s Sack tries to find out what you want to be streaming.
Welcome to Anonymous Tabletop Episode 36.
In this episode Tim reaches out to a potentially crappy new sponsor, Dave rambles on way to long about a “sucky” book he read, and Mario proves he’s the king of the convention circuit when he tours the country to find even more of them.
We then talk about missing out on this year’s Gen Con, Geeky Jean channels her inner Canadian when she apologizes for jumping the line, and we discuss the nerdy fear of missing out when it comes to movies, TV, conventions, and games.
And last but not least, we announce the “lucky” winner of our Facebook contest, Shut Up and Take My Money puts a call out to all you Bohabs, Celebrity Deathmatch turns into a violent three-way, and Tim’s Sack tries to find out which of our crew is missing out the most.
