2021 Reunion Special
David Jones, Jeph Perez and Clay Howard reunite for the first all new L.O.G. Cast since 2017.  We discus what we have been doing for the past 3 and a half years, get caught up on all the Rare & Friends covered news, and play and discuss clips taken from the past 109 episodes of the show. Stay tuned until the end for a special announcement regarding the future of the show. Don’t miss it! Our audio gear in 2021 even sounds at least 75% better!

Grabbed by the Ghoulies Lost Audio Drama
Through much effort, David Jones has resurrected the recorded table read of the first chapter of what was going to be a Grabbed by the Ghoulies audio drama set to be released as a special series in October 2017. This series was written and conceived by Clay Howard and a table read of the first chapter was recorded in early September 2017, with fantastic narration by Jephren Perez. Some of the audio was lost and had to be restore via the magic of robot voices, but it only ends to the charm!

#DKC2is20 Lost Episode
The long-lost episode of the L.O.G. Cast. Originally intended to be the 14th episode of our first season, this would have been the third part of our Donkey Kong Country 2, 20th Anniversary spotlight. One side of the audio was lost, and it was discarded as an episode, and latter re-recorded with 3 hosts in Season 2 with vastly different content. David has tirelessly restored the original surviving audio as best he could to give you a glimpse of what would have been.
