Episode 2: Attack of the Gnomes

This episode of full of guests!  I interview Brian and Amy Gambrell for Meet the Swarm and get a very interesting and funny story about a nun and LARPing.  My wife, Ruby, interviews the staff of Gnome Con and Empire Games while we were at Gnome Con.  All of this, plus, I get to make obscure references to Bionic Six and the Electric Mayhem (who I think I called the Electric Sunshine by mistake… whoops!).
