Episode 11: The Stanley Parable, Plantaze Crnogorski Vranac, and A Journey to Nerdopolis
Pondering the existential angst of the trippy first-person PC game, The Stanley Parable. Sipping on wine from the Balkans whose name seriously challenged my ability to say words and the impending dread of narrating the first title of your own writing...seriously, haven't seen this much dread since the module X 1. Aaah, wilderness.

Episode 10: A Voyage Through Dungeons & Dragons, Goats Do Roam. and Guesswork
Waxing nostalgic about Dungeons & Dragons and its ubiquity in my life. A quick stop to talk about Moldvay Basic and the Planescape campaign setting. Mixed in with some wine-blend notes and a word to the wise about why young men in their 20's shouldn't be allowed to name their LARPs. Carnival guessers and boxes filled with 88 scents are thrown in for flavor and good measure!
