ep. 16 AHHHHH Robots!!!!!

Robots are being introduced into mainstream more often.  We have Alexa, and google home, not to mention Siri on Iphones.  Now there is the introduction to Jibo for the home that can display emotions and learns what different users in the home will like and responds accordingly. Does this influence the way family members will interact with one another?  Lea discusses her fear of the AI taking over the world and killing mankind and discusses a conspiracy theory that the humans would die with the introduction to new robots thanks to Pixar. You can see the video here If you would […]

Holiday’s, Movies, and possibly current events

  Hey we got a new logo!!!! Quick apology to begin with there might be some banging in the background, we did get rid of most of it but there is still some, I hope you can bare with us, during the episode. So we had a lot of plans that fell through.  But we did get to see some movies, of course we both saw Thor: Ragnarok, but Kat did not see Justice League, and Lea refuses to see The Last Jedi.  She refuses to see any Star Wars movies. There has been a lot of high power people […]

This is the episode before NYCC.  Both Leah and Kat have been going for years, and they will be attending again.  There will be, of course, a NYCC exclusive episode discussing family’s who attend conventions, as well family’s who cosplay together.  The plan, maybe speak to family’s on Sunday, which used to be called Family Day.

Apps in therapy

I think I should preface this by saying in no way should any of these apps be used without therapy.  These are not ways to diagnose or treat alone, but in conjunction with mental health professionals. https://www.codetherapyfilm.com/ Code therapy is a 15 minute documentary that discusses depression.  Discussing that depression is the second largest cause of disability in the world and then discussing apps that can be used to help those who are suffering from depression. http://www.psychiatryadvisor.com/top-10-mental-health-apps/slideshow/2608/ .

ep. 07 Finding yourself in pop culture and Ghost hunting

Kat got to explore one of her fandoms, geeky likes, nerd like passions… whatever you want to call it… But she went to see Eastern State Penitentiary.  It is a jail that was built in 1829 and closed in 1971.  This did pique Kat’s love of history (especially haunted history) and some psychological aspects in learning that when the prison first opened everyone was brought in to single cells with hoods on their heads so no one knew who they were, and their exercise yard was attached to their cells….individual exercise yards. Imagine doing 15 years of solitary confinement,  because […]

ep.06 Family of choice vs. Family of origin

Family of origin are the people who we are born into, or marry into.  While Family of Choice are the people that we choose to have involved in out lives.  These people will become like siblings, uncles, aunts or even surrogate parents for us. In fiction family of choice is often used to help create a family with people that they have more in common with, especially when the main character has developed some type of supernatural powers.  The new family share similar powers or secrets. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/FamilyOfChoice Please follow and like us:

Level 60 Bikini Virgin Killer Sweater

Why when I play a female fighter or wizard or ranger or whatever when I play a video game the higher level my character is the less armor my character seems to be wearing.   My armor class is higher, that is cool, but it looks like I’m riding through Azeroth naked, or in a bikini. But when you pick up the armor in any dungeon, it will look like a really cool breast plate, or chain mail pants and when you put it on it’s like a loincloth.   Is this what guys are looking for? Anyway these costumes are not […]

Trauma Porn & new home tech

Starting off, we are apologizing for Lea & Kat sounding very congested, as tree sex attempts to kill them by hindering their breathing. Kat gets to gush about her new computer and software she is using to record and edit with (thanks Shannon.) Because new tech is always fun to talk about, and gush about, and get and play with. Why are people so fascinated by watching bad things happen?  As a society when there is a car accident we slow down to see what is going on, to see the chaos, the carnage, we pray that the people are […]

It seems many people believe they have a family member or loved one who is addicted to video games.  Are they really?  Are video games as bad as people think they are or is video game addiction just a new psychological buzz word.  This episode Lea and Kat discuss Video Game addiction; is it a diagnosis?
