Episode 128 — Everything is Temperamental at Best

Chaos. Uncertainty. Disloyalty. Keywords of the day. But we can handle it. We can fling Loyalty challenges across the table with the best of them. We can arrange a Renaissance marriages and take over religions and funnel coins from one bank to the next like it’s water flowing through pipes. Oh, yes we can. And then we can turn it all up to 11 and list the Euros that should remain on our shelves.

Yep, that’s all happening here in episode 128.

Episode 122 — Inventory Replays

We made it. 2017 is heading out the door. We’re battered and beaten and bruised and bewitched and bespoke and bee-stung and help me off this ride. Phew!

But before we go, here’s a bunch of stuff we dug in 2017. We’re talkin’ games and whiskey and whisky and tunes and food and beer and a whole lot of other things in this episode. We take a swipe at a few things, but we mostly go for the good stuff as we sneak off to 2018, hoping that if it doesn’t hear us we can find a little more peace and joy in that neck of the woods. Anyway, please enjoy our year-end extravaganza. We’ll see you on the other side.
