Fear the Boot FtB were the first podcast I ever listened to, and I spent many hours on my walk to & from work catching up with their back catalogue. As such, my memories of the episodes up to #170 or so are punctuated with the sounds of Crows being ‘melodious’ ~ craig

    YAAAaaaaay!!! Again. 🙂
    Listening to segments of this episode has given me
    additional ideas RE: the Fiasco playset the Gutter Skypes are working on. ( Fan Convention Based Over-All ) – And as for your Superb Shout Out and Plug for our Podcast, We thank you with all our Might! – ( Apologies that we took something like an hour and a half or something to actually get to reading Craig’s feedback in our last episode. As mentioned many times – we tend to scatter and bounce like a bucket of hard rubber balls spilled out on a street in San Fransisco.) Now I must go burn the image from my brain of actually having to burrow through the corpse of a Giant Snake. * Whistling off the get the brain Bleach * You All Rock!! Take Care! 🙂

      Oooh! Do you need playtesters for the Fiasco? I’ve been reading the rules set, but haven’t actually Fiascoed yet, (still trying to pin down my player group to finish a playtest of Noir!, but I digress.) Still enjoying the heck out of Edison Force, including your group’s tendency to tangent. I get this nice warm, “hey, that’s what our game nights sound like!” vibe. The only reason we sound as together as we do on the show is because I cut about a quarter of our unhelpful mouth noises before it goes out.
      Nikki’s couch explanation was great, and I might track down some stunt-couches for future podcast imagery based on her suggestions.
