If you've ever wondered why you bought that Benadryl, Gentle Listener, then tune in while hosts Wesley Johnson, Zach Tuttle, Russ Walsh, Sam Dixon, and Randall Smith induce aural motion sickness. Nobody's tough after 110 minutes of this, cargo pants or not.
In this episode:
A rocky start, but one that still incites envy, doesn't it, Gentle Listener? Zach Tuttle an oil rig man, and a 3D modeler to boot. The worst boat ride ever. There are no fish on the ocean floor, people: just buy the drilling equipment already. Zach a fan of derivative beat 'em ups. Sam recounts his big break in game journalism with some site Wesley has done on the side. Wesley's throat nodules huge, but hugely benign, to the relief of all. Russ creates the greatest banner ever, featuring a plushie Snufflupagus. The JPAG D&D campaign, and tales of dumb characters from campaigns past. Dragonslayer. Questionable gaming peripherals, and envy-inducing game peripherals. Day of the Tentacle recommended to those who missed it, like Zach and Randall. Appreciation for Justin's ripping the Double Helix guy a new one. Battlefield Heroes pimped big time. Randall complains about the outdoor theatre in Oak Park.
