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!
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.
For episode 35, we wanted to provide an emotional counterpoint to the topics in our 33rd episode, and bring you our take on THE BESTS! This time around we’re talking about what rides, bikes, games, bars, and drinks we consider to be The Best Around (nothing gonna ever bring them down). What are your Bests? Write us and let us know!
Continuing the new format update for Season 3, in this episode we’re talking about the many various drinking receptacles that have kept us inebriated throughout the centuries. Join us for a look into why different drinks are served in so many differently-shaped containers, with some history lessons for some of the more esoteric ones.
