Pattern recognition, recency and familiarity biases can impact our perceptions and responses. If you're hiring a librarian and the applicant doesn't look like your preconceived notion of what a librarian looks like, does that impact your assessment of them? If your high school bully was named Toby, does that affect your impressions of other Tobys y…
 
I think you guys have figured this out by now but we just go away for a while and then come back abruptly. At least we have a lot to talk about. We took a trip out west to one of our favorite cities, San Francisco. We spent a day and a half in Napa taking a chance to go to the Francis Ford Coppola Winery and to Del Dotto Vineyards. Del Dotto stores…
 
The odds are very high that any people you’re leading, and from whom you’re trying to get buy-in for change, have had leaders like you try it with them before. On average, it’s likely that those previous efforts and results have not been great. Overt and obvious opposition is easy to spot and you're compelled to actively deal with it but how do you…
 
Once again we are back from an unannounced hiatus but this time our lack of content was caused by something much more dire. After Sarah’s ankle reconstruction surgery she spent 4 days in the ICU due to a massive blow clot in each of her lungs. Everything is good now and she is almost back to normal but it was touch and go for a while there. On a li…
 
Toby Fox, developer of the the beloved Undertale, dropped a new “game” on Halloween called Deltarune. Many are speculating that this is a playable trailer for Toby’s next game set in the Undertale universe. In other news, I have contracted an illness known as RDR2. I hate the main character but for some reason I keep playing… weird.…
 
Howl-O-Scream this year in Tampa was incredible. With Universal right down the road, Tampa needs to match or exceed the standards put up by the halloween giant. The production value is on par and in a lot of instances the scares are better. If you have never been, now is the time to go. Just maybe think about getting a “Front of the Line Pass” if y…
 
This year everyone is talking about Stranger Things and the house at HHN 28 does not disappoint. We follow up with our remaining 5 houses including Seeds of Extinction, Stranger Things, Poltergeist, Trick r Treat, and Halloween 4. These houses are gorgeous and really put you in the story they are portraying like standing in the middle of Joyce’s li…
 
The best Disney deal is upon us. Not only do you get into the Magic Kingdom for way less but you get a butt load of candy and an incredible show and parade lineup to boot. This year they added some live actors to some of the rides and changed up a couple others. There are also special snacks and treats as well as exclusive meet and greets that you …
 
New Pokemon for Switch is a real thing!!! Lets go Pikachu and Lets go Eevee are real and we are pretty excited. The Pokemon Go integration looks non-intrusive and the changes they made we can live with especially since we are getting a traditional mainline Pokemon game for Switch next year. Also, a new Fallout is coming in the form of Fallout 76. F…
 
Rounding out our L.A. trip was a VIP tour at Universal Studios Hollywood. The VIP tour is by far the BEST way to do Universal Hollywood. If you have been to Universal Orlando, you won’t be surprised by any of the rides however the studio tour is well worth the trip. We were able to see sets from Superstore, Back to the Future, War of the Worlds, Th…
 
Continuing from last week, we pick up on day two of our L.A. trip: Disney’s California Adventure. Since Hollywood Studios is one of our favorite parks in Orlando, we were dying to get into California Adventure. Even if we were only able to get on Radiator Springs Racers and Guardians of the Galaxy Mission Breakout this trip would have been a succes…
 
We went to LA and did way too much stuff. Not only did we go to Disney and Universal but also managed to take an LA tour of celebrity homes, the walk of fame, the Chinese theater, Beverly Hills, the Famers Market and much more. We ate at In-N-Out, saw the Santa Monica Pier and walked the Venice Beach Boardwalk. We are also starting a NEW podcast ca…
 
Do you guys even like our content? We do these things every single week and we have not really gotten a lock on what our subscribers like us to talk about. We welcome any feedback you guys give us, we can’t do anything different if we don’t know. You can always find us on social media: Twitter: @KyleandSarah Facebook: @TheProlongedEngagement Instag…
 
Since getting our Disney passes we have been trying to try more of the in-park food in the Disney theme parks. So far everything we have eaten inside Disney has been really good, like actually worth your money good. Between Disney, Universal and Seaworld who comes out on top when it comes to food? Is it even worth spending your money?…
 
Not sure if discussions on mass shootings and Disney fireworks shows go together but here we are. After the mass shooting in Parkland, FL we heard once again that it is violent video games, tv, and movies that cause people to commit atrocities. Don’t let them try to change the subject this is about gun control, NOT video games. To lighten things up…
 
We did a couple cool things over the holiday weekend. We went to St. Augustine to try out the St. Augustine Distillery as well as the St Augustine Wild Reserve, where they care for a number of big cats and wolves. Then we went to Disney Springs to try the new VR experience “Secrets of the Empire.” If you have not tried it we highly recommend it. So…
 
“Sleep is a waste of time.” – Thomas Edison (Inventor of the lightbulb, possibly the single item most responsible for messing up our Circadian Rhythms.) Nah. Though researchers don’t know the exact mechanism, it seems that chronic lack of sleep causes inflammation, elevates blood pressure and heart rate, and affects glucose levels, leading to a muc…
 
Much time, effort and expense is wasted on hiring the wrong people. Job interviews are critically important, yet the vast majority of people conducting job interviews have received zero training at job interviewing. Here is a walk-through a simple but consistently effective approach to conducting job interviews, either solo or as part of a panel. F…
 
For Sarah’s birthday we were able to head to New York for the weekend to check out a few Broadway shows including War Paint; Kinky Boots; Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812; Hello, Dolly! and Present Laughter. You can check out the Tony performances of Hello Dolly: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R-3SEz7QFGA War Paint: https://www.youtube.co…
 
There is a slight sync issue with the video on this one that I can’t seem to fix. Trust me I tried for 3 hours. If it is too much for you, feel free to check out the audio version above. At any rate, Sarah and I got to ride Race Through New York with Jimmy Fallon. It was really good but the best part was the queue.…
 
This year E3 is open to the public. That means that anyone who wanted to go could get a ticket whereas before it was a closed event that was very press centric. This could potentially blow up in the industries’ face. We also talk about the rumors surrounding Universal Orlando’s Super Nintendo World expansion.…
 
We found another one folks, another victim of outrage culture but this time it is focused towards Nintendo and their new vuluptuous fighter from Arms, Twintelle. Tanya DePass turns to Mic saying she “couldn't get excited like everyone else. All [she] could think about was her hair. Specifically, the fact she's a brown, female character with weaponi…
