The JV Club with Janet Varney

Saddle up, because episode 151 with Jennifer Hale (Bioshock, Mass Effect, Halo) is a whirlwind of slipping through the timestream, listening to your gut, and lessons only a horse can teach you. NOTE! Regardless of your age, you will want to be Jennifer Hale when you grow up.

It’s the 150th Episode of The JV Club, and how better to celebrate than with one JV chit-chatting with another JV (the simply fantastic Jean Villepique)? With stories from a tall girl with big dreams from a small town in New Jersey, it’s an episode Bruce Springsteen could (and should!) write a song about.

I’ll just say it: Episode 146 is one of the most inspiring to date. Way to go, Erin Fitzgerald (Chie from Persona 4)! From the far reaches of Ottawa, Ontario through the lovely Victoria, British Columbia, Los Angeles has the good fortune to be called home by this shining star, who knows a good chocolate croissant when she tastes one.

Episode 142 welcomes “Skepchick” Rebecca Watson, who reminds us that every time it rains, it rains pennies from heaven. And speaking of heaven, turns out there may not be one. A look at atheism and secular humanism with a sprinkling of Christianity is supplemented with plenty of R.E.M. and the scientific discovery that humans have two different stomachs! You heard it here first!
