The #GamerGate Episode Guide

Since the consumer revolt against corruption in the media known as #GamerGate exploded in August 2014, we have done several episodes featuring extensive news, analysis and discussion of  the issues, each with a corresponding Show Notes post with the many, MANY source links and videos from which we drew our topics. As many hours as we've spent on the show talking about it, it's but a mere sliver of the vast bulk of information out there.

While it's by no means all-inclusive, it does provide a substantial basis for our listeners to read for themselves the side the corrupt and ideologically-biased media specifically refuses to admit exists and actively lies about in their reporting. Unlike the biased media, we present the evidence and allow you to determine its veracity. We don't just say "listen and believe" us; we want you to KNOW and THINK for yourselves. 

This post will be updated to add episodes with significant segments (i.e. more than just a few quick items) about #GamerGate.

  • Whoops! Had the wrong date at the top - this was the May 14 episode, not May 13.
  • Tips on how to get the best bang for your buck in home theater; why spend too much for a larger set when sitting closer solves the problem? AVS Forum is the place for advice, help and user reviews.

    To Calculate Perceived Sizes:
    1. Measure the distance from the screen to where your head will be and enter in the Viewing Distance box at Size Calc
    2. Go to Display Wars and enter a pair of TV sizes to compare like 55" and 60" (like Dirk discusses). Get the widths from stats boxes (in this case, 48" and 52.3") and enter the larger size in Physical Size box.
    3. The Perceived Size box now displays how many degrees of arc that width occupies in your vision. In this example, being 10 feet away from a 52.3 inch wide TV results in ~24.6 degrees.
    4. Click the lock next to the Perceived Size field to lock (duh) that number in.
    5. Now enter the size of the smaller set (e.g. 48") in the Physical Size field. The Distance field changes to 9.18 feet or 110 inches meaning that a 55-inch TV viewed from 110 inches away appears to be the same size as a 60-inch TV viewed from 120 inches (10 feet)!
    6. PROFIT!!!
