BG-403-Extreme Closeup

May 18, 2012 By: Meg Category: Season 4, Sodes, Thematic Comments Off on BG-403-Extreme Closeup

Have you taken the survey yet? And did you put in complementary comments about us? I mean come on, who else talks about porn like this?


Choosing an RPG is like choosing your porn. We talk about porn, play some in the background, and read a little. Probably unsafe-er for work than normal.

Segments Include:

People have died
  • Junior Seau


    I suspect the Mooninites

  • Kurt Cobain, still dead
  • Adam Yauch
  • Strawmen
  • Other stuff
Why are we mature?
  • 6 fart jokes and a dick reference
  • Milk toast definition for others who don’t know what it is (edit from Josh: That’s quite the eggcorn but it is milquetoast)
  • Going there to go there? Or just there naturally?
  • How mature do your games go without even trying?

Taste in RPGs is like your taste in Porn


  • Listen along as we experience each other’s porn choices
  • Zeke is predictable
  • Meg likes to imagine really doing it
  • Josh is a weird mofo
  • Meg screws with people who haven’t seen Cabin in the Woods










Episode 402: Too Soon?

May 01, 2012 By: Meg Category: Season 4, Sodes 1 Comment →

Too Soon? Too Soon to joke about deaths? Too Soon to loudy interject our real family into an episode (’cause the baby, the toddler, and the dog interjected in this episode a LOT)? Or Too Soon to actually put out another episode?

While you are pondering, take the Podcast Listener Survey! Now! And put in complementary comments about our fine features!


Segments Include:



People Died

Grinds My Gears

  • What do you think of the phrase Dime a Dozen?

RPGs as Kid’s Shows

  • Wonderpets is either brilliant or brilliantly horrible. And no one is voting for the former
  • It reminds us of Burning Wheel
  • What Kid’s Shows remind you of RPGs? Or vice versa?

The Culture War

  • Based on the Book
  • Are you Progressive or Orthodoxy?


  • Should you drink at the game table?
Other Questions
  • What do you think of our interstitials? What should we go with?
  • Are you pro or con Ming Ming?
