    Episode 2 (7/22/13)

    On the second episode of Size Matters, Kwandry and Kenson are joined by writer Sylvan Scott, as they discuss his twenty years of macro/micro fiction, as well as shrinking and growing in Saturday Morning Cartoons.

    Of course, we couldn't record a macro/micro podcast without tlking a little bit about our good friend Godzilla and Pacific Rim, now could we?

    Episode 4 (8/5/13)

    Guests? We don't need no stinkin' guests!! Kwandry and Kenson go it solo this week to discuss video games featuring macros, micros, stomps, rampaging, and just an overall sense of scale.

There's only one podcast and so many macro and micro fans out there who want some, so grab your episode now, before it's too late!

    Episode 8 - 9/30/13

    No, we haven't disappeared! We've been here all along, just under your footpaw! Can't blame a panda or a cheetah for trying life as ultra-mini-micros for a while now, can you? Well, the good news is, now we're back to where the audio recording equipment can pick up the sounds of our voices, and we're joined by Freder this week to talk about the new macro/micro-themed magazine Loom that he's put together, as well as have a discussion about macro and micro ergonomics. And don't worry, Size Matters will always be with you... in your heart. Because we've shrunk down, invaded your blood stream, and are taking a tour!

    Size Matters Episode 8.5 - 10/7/13

    After ten weeks and a non-stop flood of emails, we decided that the only way we can stop the outpouring was to invite its source, Dragonien Hitsune, to be the third co-host of the podcast. During this mini-episode, we talk about... well, what DON'T we talk about? Ummm... Apartheid... Sandwiches... The Hagia Sophia... okay, this list actually would be pretty long. Just... listen and find out.

    Episode 9 (10/14/13)

    The Three Macramigos return and are here to talk to you about the Short Stories and Tall Tales Writers Group, as well as MACROS (and micros) IN SPAAAACE! For those of you who don't quite get that, it's a reference to the Muppet Show. For those of you who don't know what a Muppet is, it's a mix between a mop and a puppet that people used to think were funny for reasons beyond my comprehension. Anywho... PODCAST START!

    Our tenth episode spectacular is upon us, and who do we have to join us to celebrate but the one and only big cougar himself, Elrabin! During this episode, we look back on past topics and see if we have any new perspectives on them. And we use a newfangled invention called a CLOCK! Who'da thunk that someone would create an instrument that lets you tell time, huh?

    Episode 11.5 (11/18/13)

    In our last mini-episode before MIDWEST FURFEST, Kenson continues to get more vorey, Dragonien roars and gets ranty, and Kwandry lets loose and gets tipsy. It's... well, it's worth a listen, at least.

    Kwandry and Kenson are joined by very special guest Harvey Fierstrin to talk about his new-- wait, what's that? You say that's Dragonien?!! No way, that can't be possible! That voice... Wow... well, in that case, I guess we'll have to get Tauros to fill in, and because he has a Masters in Psychology, we're going to talk about just that! Of course, since we're SIZE MATTERS, it's going to be psychology of things big and small! Let's see if you can ANALYZE THIS!
