Easy Update is a weekly series created by Isla Hinck which features conversations with a variety of guests, unorthodox looks at games, original music composed by Isla, short films, comedy skits, and more.
The show is a spiritual successor to the GameTrailers series, Mandatory Update.
Easy Update debuted on March 26, 2016, shortly after Easy Allies officially launched. The weekly show has led to several albums of music being released by Isla on Bandcamp and SoundCloud as well as live performances featuring special guests and the Easy Update Band.
The Easy Allies improv show Fiasconauts initially started as a special Easy Update episode on September 10, 2016. A Tabletop Escapades Presents episode was then filmed on September 21, 2016 while Dungeon Master Ben Moore was out. Fiasconauts officially launched as its own monthly show on October 28, 2016.
Isla posted a Patreon announcement on February 10, 2021 that Fiasconauts was moving off the monthly rotation and shifting to a more occasional special event release schedule. In its place on the monthly schedule is the re-introduction of the Easy Update segment, The Fast & Loose Internet Talk Show as its own standalone Patreon exclusive show. With the shift to its own show, $5 and up Patrons are able to ask questions which Isla will choose at random without reading them beforehand. New episodes are scheduled to premiere at the end of each month on Patreon.
Isla publicly came out as a trans woman and a lesbian in May 2021 on Twitter and Easy Update, specified her pronouns as she/they, and revealed her new name. She also answered questions from Patreon in a follow up AMA episode.
