Take a look at your Friends Lists and Follower counts. Of the [insert amount here] people on those lists, how many of their first names do you know? Do you know where they are from? What they like to do for fun? For work? Actually, do you know anything about any of them besides their gamertag or Twitter handle?

Odds are, you don't know all that much about the real people who populate your friends lists. So how can we cure the anti-socialness of social media? Simple. By being brave enough to be social again! In this episode, MasterWife and MasterJoe discuss the idea of demystifying the mystery of avatars and getting to know the people behind them to form more meaningful relationships. Put on your bold pants, listener. This one comes with a challenge! Oh and enjoy the copious amount of Star Fox quotes because Star Fox Zero launches today :)

BONUS: Boost or Break, Miitomo, Voice Actor Casting?

Greetings from MasterJoe and Dr. MasterWife! It's been quite a while but the Masters are back in #HPHQ and better than ever. Thank you all for supporting us in our absence. In fact, this entire episode is about support! Life can be pretty challenging sometimes (don't we know). You may have an important test to study for or a big assignment at work to get done. Maybe you're just trying to tackle the Dark Zone in The Division. Just like in video games, when the going gets tough, the tough bring healers! Or engineers, or spell casters, or more healers! Always more healers.

MasterWife discusses her long and arduous journey from graduate student to doctorate degree holder and MasterJoe spouts nonsense while reacting to multiple trigger words and phrases, resulting in a few songs and some movie quotes. Prepare yourselves HPeeps. Support is inbound!

P.S.: Never get the airport sandwich.

BONUS: Captain Planet, Listener Homework
