Most everyone who's played an RPG knows a thing or two about party management. You've got to make sure you've got the right composition of do-gooders to vanquish the dark forces. However, we bet most folks haven't considered how they can use the same party management logic from video games to build better social circles in real life!

In this episode, MasterWife and MasterJoe discuss the idea of party management in video games to see how it can be applied in real life. Whether at work, in class, on the court or on the beach, we'll help you power up your social circles by making sure you've got the right kind of company for the situation! Top it all off with some trigger phrases from the Wiz and a Zelda themed Boost or Break and you've got a pretty sweet episode on your hands— er, ears? Ears. Yeah.

BONUS: Breath of the Mods, The Wiz, Boost or Break!
