After an unexpected quarantine-required break from our regular recording sessions, we are finally back with a new episode. Like many other creative ventures around the world, we had to take additional time out to adapt our recording setup to work via an online format. I’m happy to finally have (most of) the issues all sorted out, so we can bring you more content! This issue is a bit more free-form than most, as we take some time to dive into the various things we’ve been doing to keep ourselves sane during this contagion crisis. The audio is not as top quality as we usually strive to bring you, but with a few more tweaks to the setup we’re sure to be back in true form in the coming days. Thank you so much for your continued support, friendship, and humanity.
Have you ever wanted to know what it takes to get into a new career as a bartender? Just Jacob and Dr. Xander lead us on an informative look into the basics of what it takes to learn the business, including their own behind-the-bar origin stories. All the while, we drink a variety of Irish Whiskeys that we’ve not had on the show before, starting with the “worst” of the bunch and working our way deeper into the delicious vaults of aged quality.
We’re bringing you a special bonus message from the Breakfast Puppies crew: Stay the Fuck Home! This mini-episode details how the four of us are dealing with the current COVID-19 aka Coronavirus outbreak and subsequent quarantine. If you’re looking for tips on how to stay sane, listen along. And if you are losing your shit, please join us online, reach out to us however you can. We’re here for you.
Listen now to our fifth and final session in the first story arc of the “Out of Time” campaign for the Tales from the Loop RPG. This is a long one, and took a bit longer than usual to assemble. I don’t want to spoil a single moment, so please, pour yourself some libations, prepare a snack or five, and enjoy the adventure!
Welcome back, friends! This time we are joined by Joe of Ramblin’ Leather Goods. Joe has lots of stories to share about his time living on his bike, traveling the west coast selling his hand-made leather goods. He also has some candid tales about recovering from alcoholism and adopting a sober lifestyle. To support this conversation, Just Jacob has mixed for us a trio of absolutely fantastic and flavorful non-alcoholic cocktails.
Our good friend and supporting patron Jeremy joins us for episode 37! Jeremy has brought with him a beverage that we’ve mentioned a few times in the past, and now challenges us to take The Malort Challenge. Listen in to see how we all join and bond over the drunken chains of bitter-foul adversity. Then stick around and listen to Jeremy educate us about the great “sport” of Hashing, aka “A drinking club with a running problem.” After that we hear stories of riding scooters in the streets of Cambodia. Thanks for joining us, Jeremy!
Our very special “Tales from the Loop” actual play campaign continues in its fourth session! Our kid heroes are getting closer to solving the mystery of the time bubble in this fantastic RPG about a weird retro-tech 1980s that never was. Some crazy shit happens this time around!
This episode is all about winter riding! Just Jacob takes lead this week, starting with educational lessons about the best practices for storing your various bikes during the winter months. Then for those of you who want to ride all year, he talks about tips and warnings for those cold-season adventures.
Our Tales from the Loop actual play campaign continues with part 3 of the “Out of Time” adventure. Journey with us to a special 1986 version of Klamath Falls, OR that never was, with Bon Jovi, the Goonies, particle accelerators, and a Volkswagen-sized robot.
Finally, another character jam! Listen along as we drink “Single-Serving” Wines (mostly from cans – wine from cans, can you believe that?) and work our way through the delightfully simple character creation process for the Mothership RPG.
