Compliments, or why a drunken moose matters

You can listen to all our episodes over on Gumbie Cat Networks!

In which the Snarkers discuss compliments, hair, and moose.

Inspired by this buzzfeed article (don’t judge), the Snarkers along with guests Alison and Brianna have a fun conversation that starts with compliments and ends with battling moose and bears for guns? I dunno, you had to be there.

Collective Snark – Episode 2.10 – The Magicians

Julia

In which the Snarkers gather to talk about our mutual love of SyFy’s The Magicians. This dark fantasy pays homage to classic fantasies like The Chronicles of Narnia and Alice in Wonderland.

It can be a little hard to learn to love, but if Penny’s eyes don’t draw you in, maybe it’s Elliot and Margo, or maybe Quentin and Alice’s bumbling relationship, or Julia’s dark path to find her way to magic.

Guests Rob and Lyz join us for the conversation.

Warning: This episode addresses topics like rape and abortion.

Collective Snark – Episode 2.9 – How to talk to girls. And guys. And anyone in between

img130

In which the Snarks talk with their friend Jack about how to appropriately approach people with whom you’d like to express interest. We talk about body language, that wretched “How to turn a no into a yes” article,” when it’s ok to approach people, and more.

Also, whether or not Jack is a player and whether or not Jack is a good boyfriend.

Jack is kinda a good sport, you guys.
