For the past 6 months, members of Stick'n'Poke Productions have been involved in spearheading the planning and execution of a new music festival in Glenwood Springs, Colorado. The festival aims to give exposure to young artists and musicians in Denver and Glenwood, while also encouraging the support of local businesses and sustainable living. You can check out a write-up by 303 Magazine, or head on over to the Orpheus website for more information!
Stick'n'Poke's first video series is born...
In an attempt to keep the fire of our friendship alive, Michael and I have taken the first step in the journey of a thousand belly laughs and a million technical difficulties: An original Let's Play series. For our first run, we tackle The Mystery of the Druids, a critical and consumer flop that manages to turn a mystery about magical ritual sacrifice into a banal police procedural.
Will Michael be able to finish the game before completely losing his mind?
In this episode, we try to figure out how to podcast. Topics include: intersectional identity, queerbaiting, how gay Tomb Raider should be, and the cool sexuality system in Fallout: New Vegas. Hannah pets a cat. Kai makes a very good K.D. Lang joke.
The network is growing...

In what accidentally became the longest episode yet, Aaron gets geeky for an old top-down RPG, Mihana's boo-thing Spencer can't believe what our bodies can do, and Mihana talks fear. Special guest appearances by Chuck Testa and Pigeon Wolf.
Mihana gets spiritual in dreamland, Bridget has a bone to pick with language, and Aaron gets misty eyed over a favorite album. All this while racing a computer battery and bladder capacity.
Mihana walks the group through an analysis of a famous rap verse, Dan discusses Easter traditions from around the world, and Aaron recounts a special (if complicated) locale from his college experience.
In the discussion of Snoop Dogg’s "California Girls" lyrics, we want it to be clear that we are commenting on what we believe Snoop’s intentions are. We do not in anyway support the idea that genitals determine gender. We are always striving to become better allies to our LGBTQ friends and family, and wanted to acknowledge the nuances of that particular segment. Much love.
We're really sorry about this buck-wild attempt at a first episode. A few quick notes:
- Johnny Quest is not an example of venture capitalism at all
- We wrote/recorded the theme song in 5 minutes. Can you tell?
- I'd like to apologize for my comments about my grandfather.
Welcome to Grandma’s House! Sitting in good company on the back stoop of my friends’ home one summer night, I was approached by my friend Taylor. “Make a podcast”, she said. “Hell fucking no,” I said. Record myself talking and expect people to listen to it? Busy people with real lives? What would I say? No I’d never make a podcast what a ridiculous idea. Though after letting that marinate in the analytical juices of my cranium it didn’t seem to be such a crazy idea. I’m extremely glad Taylor suggested this because Grandma’s House now serves as an elegiac, expressive outlet for me in myriad ways. I used to go over to my Grandma’s house quite frequently growing up. She’d show me her garden, we’d watch tv, or she’d make me food and we’d just sit and talk. She always had Welch’s grape juice. I loved that she always had Welch’s grape juice. After my Grandma passed I was worried I’d never get that feeling again. You know, that Grandma’s house feeling. And that’s what I hope to cultivate through this podcast for both listeners and guests alike. A comfortable, curious, accepting environment in which I may express myself allowing others to feel comfortable doing the same in return. Sit back, relax, and call your grandma!
