We’re super excited to welcome special guest PB, founder of the Latino Rifle Association. PB joins us to talk about a subject that many folks have had on their mind in these conflicted times: firearms and the acquisition thereof. We look at good and bad reasons for wanting to own a gun, then talk about what you need to know in order to begin the process of legal acquisition. Along the way we share our own stories of past and present firearm acquisitions, and reinforce crucial safety rules and requirements that all firearms users should follow.
We talk about those cool physical game components that we all recognize as the iconic tools of tabletop role-playing. We talk about the tools as well as much of the common lexicon and “inside terms” that permeate modern games, so you too can sound like an expert in nerdy conversations. We also take a special look into Poppy’s home-made “Dice Guide” that she made to help her learn which dice were which when she started playing more RPGs.
In this episode, we share a lively discussion about the “classic” board games we all grew up with. By “classic” we mean “you could buy these at a big box toy store in the 1990s” kind of board games. These are the games that you probably played a lot with your families before moving on to the geekier and more complicated nerd-games that are all the rage today. We close out with a talk about some of the various “gateway games” that you use to help bridge the gap, or even to replace the classics at the next family gatherings.
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.

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!
