Got a hot new Sockscast that's just bursting at the seams with content as Polly completes the journey through Trails of Cold Steel III, John's choice in games continues to demonstrate just how much of a big ol brain he is after devils make him cry, and Rhete finds himself immersed in the burgeoning "Portal, but boring" genre.

If it came down to your one true love or The Sockscast, we know we'd be in good shape, because they're one in the same! This time around, Rhete's over here using videogames to get S-W-O-L-E, John becomes a demon-slaying bishie-boy, and Polly's long-awaited re-enrollment at Thors Military Academy has finally come to be!

The Sockscast welcomes Jetstorm4 back to the show after five years of having not been on an episode, and he's gonna help us navigate through all the feelings we have about these danged RPGs.

God is in the Podcast Episode II:
Smells Like Children

September 15th, 2019
Run Time: 50:19




And now we take a turn for the weird... Which is a strange thing to say given the artist we're talking about is Marilyn Manson, but as you'll see with today's episode of the podcast things definitely can get stranger. Today, we examine the band's breakthrough remix EP Smells Like Children, which finds the band experimenting as much with digital sound as they were drugs at the time!


Sockscast Episode 101
September 9th, 2019
Run Time: 3:13:18




Welcome to a post-Sockscast Episode 100 world where almost literally nothing has changed! Or has it... On today's episode, Rhete's got a feels trip coming on at the end of Trails in the Sky The 3rd, Polly's diggin' through the ditches and burning through the witches and she brought her nun's habit for extra holiness points, and John's really feeling some kind of way about Chantelise!






Welcome to the beginning of a new podcast series hosted by your pals Taylor and Polly!

God is in The Podcast is a new podcast series where we group review each of shock-rocker Marilyn Manson's mainline album releases! The catch is that Taylor and Polly are fans, and that our guest for each episode will feature someone a little less familiar with Brian Hugh Warner's musical output to hopefully create interesting and fun perspectives.

We're going to start with the group's first commercial outing Portrait of an American Family released in 1994, and joining us on that adventure is long-time Sockspal lieronet who has stayed largely blind to Mr. Manson's discography. We'll be circling around to stuff prior to this album's release at some point in the future, but for now, this felt like a good logical starting point.

August 24th, 2019

The Sockscast broadcasts its final episode as a double-digit wonder, and we're leaving our double digits in style this time around with an episode that ended up strangely packed full of Japanese Cartoons! John's back on his Nasuverse kick checking out Garden of Sinners, Rhete's watching some weird show about magical girls who are also idols but also Eva pilots, and we round out the last hour of the episode with a timely spoilercast for Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie Part III: Rebellion!


Sockscast Episode 98
July 29th, 2019
Run Time: 3:07:51




Midsummer madness strikes the Sockscast and we've come loaded with three massive hours of conversation to help you stay cool wherever you may be! In this episode, Polly attempts to understand what Ibuki meant when she said the world of girls' love is "slippery when wet," John has completely given up but not enough that he can't appreciate Mega Man 11, and Rhete still has his hard hat and hammer out in Mario Maker world, but has enough time to render judgement on other videogames as well.


Sockscast Episode 97
July 8th, 2019
Run Time: 2:16:37




Can you believe that in this post-Independence Day edition of the Sockscast that there aren't any neighbors with leftover fireworks on hand to interfere with things? That means you'll get to hear us gush for 17 hours straight about Mario Maker 2! And if that's not enogh, John's out here watching weird and creepy movies, Rhete's attacking titans, and Polly has some very important and correct opinions to share about Dragon Quest XI!

June 17th, 2019
Run Time: 2:44:44




We're COMPLETELY out of control this episode! The future is John Thyer's to command, as is this episode of the Sockscast, so of course you can bet he's gonna take us on a wild ride through the world of SaGa and maybe even change a few hearts and minds along the way. After that, Rhete's reaching the depths of the sea only to find himself washed ashore on a deserted island where he runs into Polly who's mysteriously taken up bartending as a side-job to her usual alien-blasting activities.

Oh, and I guess some big games reveal thing happened, too? We might talk about it.

What better way to once again celebrate our triumph over nature, collectively dropkicking the winter season into the sun to welcome some warmer summer vibes than a hot new Sockscast for your ear holes? In this episode John's ready to take on all alien forces that would threaten our world's livelihood from any corner of space, Polly's embarked on a grand, maybe Dragon Slaying adventure, and Rhete kicks off a Falcom/Trails in the Sky love-fest in which we successfully manage to avoid spoiling anything at all!

Sockscast Episode 93
April 29th, 2019
Run Time: 2:45:03




Okay, we've been gone for almost a month, but real life keeps folks busy like that sometimes. That just means there's plenty of stuff to talk about, like John's foray into interacting with media that's not aggressively bad (at least for a while), Rhete's still playing Saykeeroh but he's also on a lightning round of about a hundred other things too, and Polly's taking Rhete's lead from last episode and getting lost in the Scramble as well!

April 1st, 2019
Run Time: 2:53:33




Nope, it's not April Fool's. It's just us, your friendly neighborhood Sockscast crew getting together without any kinda special shenanigans. Today, we're joined by Sockscast Artist Sayara who'll be going over his recent trip to the world of Japanland. All that and we still have time for John to finally experience an existence lacking any sort of Fate-related content ever and Rhete finds himself lost in the Scramble!

Run Time: 2:29:57




As winter takes its last gasps (THANK GOD) here in the states, your pals at the Sockscast are still keeping the fires of "good conversation" going with Rhete blazing trails through the skies AND space, John is probably talking about some more Fate stuff or something, and Polly seeing a surprising end to her recent run of the survival horror genre. I can see you're almost as excited as I am to download this one!
