Episode 86: The Blooming Onion of Podcasts
This episode starts with a bang as something goes wrong at Gravy Jones' Locker, and Clem Fixit (a handyperson) is called in to... fix it... Plus, the return of a secret villain! What is up their evil sleeves, and with Toast and the Jon-bots be able to stop it? Or, do they even care?
Also, we review a quick start for Wyrd Games Through the Breach, then talk with Rone (R-o-n-e) and Lou (L-o-u) with Iron GM Games (that's right) about their new Kickstarter: Grimmerspace!

On this epsiode, we take a serious look at our experiences on coming out as gamers. We give advice, and share some rather shocking stories. You'd think we turned into a serious podcast or something. Also, our standard bag of segments and the return of Jon making a fool of himself. This should be a good one.
Every show needs a lost episode, and this one is ours!
