This week, Mike starts with a history segment on George Washington’s slave, Oney Judge. Then at the Gaming Table, Mike tells about two new roleplaying games he’s excited about playing, one a tale of steampunk pirates and one a post-apocalyptic zombie story for his son. Mike shares the Us & Them podcast with everyone and closes the first half describing his visit to Redneck Heaven. R2 has just a few listener-submitted questions on the Pod-O-Matic, and everything wraps up, as always, in Listener Betrayal.
Nerd Pride Radio, Episode 138 – Redneck Heaven
First up, Mike’s gotta talk about Captain America: Civil War (spoiler warning: he loved it). Then he rants for a while about FaceBook’s name rule and transgender bathroom issues (not related). There’s a little Pathfinder talk as he goes into the latest game session and how much Mike loves his bard. And then he closes out the first half of the show talking about how much he enjoys Once Upon a Time. On the Pod-O-Matic, R2 rolls up a half-dozen new listener submitted questions for Mike to answer, and then it’s straight into Listener Betrayal and a truly horrifying surgical story. You wanna hear how Mike scared a doctor in the ER? Well this is your chance! The time to listen is now.
Nerd Pride Radio, Episode 137 – Make My Own Wings
Just a short episode this week. Mike wishes everyone a happy Mothers Day, and then talks briefly about how he hurt his thumbs, how he once threatened to sue H.G. Wells, and how much he’s enjoying Slither.io. There’s five new listener-submitted questions for the Pod-O-Matic, and even a little Listener Betrayal at the end. It’s the perfect way to start your week.
Nerd Pride Radio, Episode 136 – Mothers Day
Mike gets a question from a new listener and spends a half hour explaining what roleplaying games are. Thanks Irish Fan. Then a few little topics and observations to clear the list, and it’s time for the Pod-O-Matic. This week, Mike and Aidan answer five listener-submitted queries including an FMK on Norse gods, a would-you-rather on losing body parts, co-op vs. adversarial games, Redwall, and the spice Melange. Mix in some Listener Betrayal, and you’ve got yourself an episode. Come sit by the fire with me, and we’ll chat.
