BDaB #018: All About Accessibility

Welcome back to the show, folks. This episode is all about promoting Accessibility in our favorite hobbies! Poppy (your favorite local Wannabe Wine Snob) brings our drinks of the evening, which are both the White and Red Winemaker’s Cut wines from Copa di Vino, a winemaker we’ve mentioned before in previous episodes. In our Bike segment, we talk about a variety of options available to make motorbiking and bicycling more accessible to those with physical discomfort, limitations, and disabilities. We carry that subject forward into our Gaming segment, discussing a variety of approaches that modern game-makers have taken to make their games more accessible. And again in our Bars segment, we keep the conversation going, discussing how accessibility can inform your approach to getting a good drink in town, as well as the choices you make when working behind the bar.

BDaB #017: Halloweeen Biking Tips, Scary Video Games, Halloween Drinking

It’s spoooOOOoOoOoOOOooky time on Bikers, Dice, and Bars! We decided to be cliche and do our first ever Halloween-themed episode, accompanying our talk with a variety of pumpkin beers from the great Pacific Northwest. In our Bike Talk segment, we talk about how to effectively ride on Halloween, including costume ideas, costume no-nos, and other tips. In our game talk, we talk about techniques for effectively instilling true fear in horror-based video games. In our Bar Talk segment, we share stories of working the industry on Halloween, among other bits of drunken tangential ramblings. Finally, we close out with Jacob’s recent “pumpkin carving” stories.
