Episode 172 — Exploits in Group Dynamics

Episode 172 — Exploits in Group Dynamics

There are times when you need to make something out of nothing. Entering the studio for episode 172 was one of those times. I mean, we had next to nothing. A game session, a new dram, a couple albums.

But we pulled it together, rambled into other territories, consolidated some stray ideas, and in the end lasted for the marathon. Yea us!?

Episode 122 — Inventory Replays

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.

Episode 117 — The Neverending Rock ‘n’ Roll Couch Tour

Never say never. Be prepared for anything. The show must go on. Choose your cliche and join us for episode 117 of the unbroken Punching Cardboard podcast.

In this episode we bid farewell to Eric, a difficult thing to do as he has been crucial to this show’s success. But for us, this is Rock ‘n’ Roll, or the closest thing we can manage. Band albums, solo albums, a rotating cast of musicians, and someone always wants to keep playin’. So welcome new Punching Cardboard co-host Joe to the stage as we intend to rock on. Of course we have some new material in the form of some Time of Crisis riffs and Gentes melodies.

Meet the new show, same as the old show.
