Welcome to The Adequate Podcast, a Gallimaufry of random stuff that may or may not involve performing arts, magic, fandom, Renaissance Festivals, writing, and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time.

(Note: You can start with the latest episodes and work backward, or work forward from the first - either way works!)

Pod 38 - What is this Podcast About, Anyway?
It's a podcast but I don't know for certain what this one's about. Let's find out together, as I record stuff Monday through Thursday and see what we end up with.  Yep, that's the entire crux of the biscuit on this one.

Pod 36 - The One About Books
In this, the 36th(!) Pod of the Adequate Podcast, Tobias takes a long, rambling look at his relationship with the written word and all those darn books which are all over his home in an undisclosed location in San Antonio, Texas.  In addition to that, we have The Word of the Day Another dip into the BoBteCh files and a bunch of other things which, if I'm organized enough to do so, will wind up in this description!  Once again, great heaps of gratitude go to Mandi, Jon, and Brian, my Patreon Patrons who are supporting Adequacy In Our Lifetime via http://patreon.com/theadequate - it's easy and not that expensive at all!
