Producer Ross’s father gave him a box, then receded to wherever it is he lurks when not summoned. What could be inside has consumed our every waking thought and sleeping nightmare since we heard of the dark curio’s existence. In this episode, like Pandora, we defy the gods by opening it to see what man was not meant to see.
We also talk about some other stuff, too, I guess.

Though GenCon is now over, we recorded bad decisions made just prior to leaving on our pilgrimage for the sake of the historical record. In this episode, we eschew beer on our beer podcast for cocktails made by long-time listener and friend Birk. Not going to lie…we drank a lot of booze for an hour-long podcast. Thankfully, we’ve been training for this moment for years.
