BDaB #004: Helmets, Gamer Noobs, and the Wannabe Wine Snob (w/ Poppy Beaujolais)

Today we are again joined by Poppy as we talk about some rather passionate subjects! We open by uncorking a fine bottle of Tears of Vulcan wine, and discussing our experiences with wine in general. For our Talk of the Road, we get pretty heavy on the subject of Helmet laws and responsibilities, before diving into the experiences of being a Total Noob at the role-playing game table. the final portion of the show is devoted to our thoughts on the Tears of Vulcan after an evening of drinking it, and even more discussion on our various loves (or distastes) of wine of all price ranges.

My apologies for a bit of sound weirdness on this one. I re-cabled the entire studio immediately before we sat down to record this episode, and remembered to re-check all the mic levels except my own. As such my voice comes through a little quieter than the rest at times, but it’s still quite listenable, so hopefully you audiophiles in our audience will forgive me this one time!
