Episode 215: Midnight Three State Beer Run

Show Notes Episode 215: “Midnight Three State Beer Run” This week, Host Dave Bledsoe takes us on a wild midnight ride into his youth searching for cheap beer and meaningful friendships. (He finds only cheap beer.) On the show this week, we are talking about the beers you were drinking when you were too young to even be drinking beer and why they were so TERRIBLE! (Turns out cheap beer is SUPPOSED to be terrible, it’s part of it!) Along the way we learn a little about the history of beer in America and how it became so ingrained in our national psyche! (Americans have EXTREMELY poor taste?) Once we move past the dark days of Prohibition, we take you the pinnacle of American beer production and consumption! (History knows this as the “Bland Years”) Then, we break down all the tricks and gimmicks the Big Brewers used to trick you into believing the domestic swill you are chugging out of a red Solo cup is actually a “craft brew”. (Fuck you Icehouse, you were never fooling ANYONE!) Finally, we examine the state of beer drinking in America and why you PhD in Linguistics to order a damn beer in a bar these days. Our Sponsor is Fast Eddie’s Ice Draft Nano-Brew, it’s DEFINITELY not just a keg of Budweiser. We open the show with Real Men of Genius and close with Todd Snider taking us on a Beer Run.

Episode #114: "The Mystery of Fresno" Redux

Show Notes Episode 114: The Mystery of Fresno Redux This week Host Dave Bledsoe attempts to roll a Saving Throw against the Real World gets a big fat One! Which means this is a rerun for Dave’s 50th Birthday. Since he rapidly running out of them, we figure now is a good time to celebrate. So, enjoy this Redux episode, 114 “The Mystery of Fresno”! On the show this week we turn our backs on all the bad news about shootings, Trumpcare and racist government officials and dive deep into a mystery of Lovecraftian proportion: Gary Gygax’s FBI File! Along the way we learn everything there is to know about the Father of Role Playing Games from his rough origins on the mean streets of Chicago to his youth on the even meaner if more manicured streets of Lake Geneva Wisconsin. (Do NOT mess with the gardeners, they WILL rake you!) Even you if never rolled a 20 sided die in your life, you will be enspelled by the origins of the game and the dark pacts signed by the creators to our Dark Lord Satan. Thrill to the adventures of Gary in the Sun Blasted Land of Hollywood and the Evils of the Masters of Entertainment. Lament the terror of seeing your childhood despoiled into a terrible cartoon with a midget, a goat bleating unicorn and a bunch of ungrateful kids who were IN THE FUCKING GAME and cried about having cool magical powers! (Come ON, that is all we ever WANTED!) Lament the at downfall of the King to the evil sorceress Lorraine. Learn the dark Secrets of Fresno and the Conspiracy of Silence the government doesn’t want you to know! Finally, discover the secret game and why Dave always plays Erica Kaine. (He secretly wants be Susan Lucci.) Much of the source material for this week comes from the biography of Gary Gygax Empire of Imagination’ by Michael Witwer. If you want to TRUE story and not just the shit we made up, we commend you to it’s pages. Our sponsor this week is Grognards School for Gamers, turning sport kids into chubby gamer nerds for 40 years! We open the show with Al Gore’s Nerd Corp and close with Jump Steady’s (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8LYQbaWb4vM&app=desktop) Dungeon Master.

Episode #114: "The Mystery of Fresno" Redux

Episode 214: Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Crafts

Show Notes Episode 214: “Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Crafts” This week Host Dave Bledsoe has a Close Encounter of the Worst Kind when he is confronted by Men in Black demanding he pay his bar tabs. On the show this week we examine the nonchalance of First Contact. (Aliens? SO BORING!) Along the way we discuss the technologies the Aliens traded us for unlimited human abductions. (High speed porn was a great deal!) We dig deep on the latest spate of reports of flying Tic Tacs spotted by Navy pilots. (Why Tics Tacs when Mentos makes more sense propulsion wise?) We examine every possibility explaining the phenomena, including the possibility the entire thing is just some bullshit the pilots are saying to get laid. (Unlikely, there are easier ways for that to happen.) Then we dive deep on WHY Dave believes so fervently these are IN FACT actual Extraterrestrial Beings from ANOTHER PLANET operating this crafts and WHY they are here! (Intergalactic airfares are at an all time low and they got a GREAT tour package!) Our Sponsor this week is Close Encounters, THE Place to meet your Extraterrestrial Date! We open the show with Ford explaining to Arthur that he is NOT, in fact, from Guildford, but from a planet in the vicinity of Betelgeuse and we close with the children of the Langley School with a message to the Visitors.
