The New Aperture Chat Short Form


The guys at Aperture Chat have completely revamped their programming this week.  Rather than one long podcast style video each week, the new format focuses on having 5 daily segments, each focusing on what was one part of the podcast previously.

Monday News
Keeping you up to date.
Tuesday Product Previews and Reviews
The More Money Than Brains Club
Wednesday The Two-Way
A weekly discussion and debate.
Thursday News Redux
Because news comes more than once a week.
Friday Games and Challenges

The new format begins with Episode 15: Welcome to the New Format.  This much more easily digestible format, which they make light of as “daily chunks that you can watch while you eat your breakfast,” is generally 15-18 minutes in duration.  Even if you’re not the least bit interested in photography, they are fairly entertaining, and it’s generally not too nerdy.

Graduated Articulates: He’s Only Guilty of Being a Dwarf

Tyrion Lannister, in the Privy, with a Crossbow.

Oh, hey. Spoilers, yo.

So. It’s been a bit, but I’m packing a new Game of Thrones post. I had wanted to write another sooner, but I figured it would be easier and fairer to wait until the Season Finale. It’s not fair to declare a TV series racist, sexist, or homophobic until it’s given you all it can. And, well, Game of Thrones Season 4 has given us all it can.
