We talk about the 90's Pub Crawl/PVDFest, then we are joined by Gina so we can finish with a spoiler-free review of Wonder Woman.

Episode 315: Our D&D Adventure Concludes!

We left off last week because our adventure was too big to be contained in one episode. The adventures of Chuck, Macksoud, and I continue under the watchful eye of Game Master Matt Di Chiara. Will our adventure end in triumph or tragedy?!?

Episode 314: For the First Time Ever, We Play Dungeons & Dragons

This episode finds Chuck and I deliving into the world of Dungeons and Dragons. Let by Game Master Matt Di Chiara (The Copacetics) and accompanied by Well-Intentioned Goofball Eric Macksoud (Senior Discount, Soundoff), we set off on a great adventure. With battles, and exploration, and a surprising amount of sexual tension between Chuck's character and mine! Wow! It's our first time playing and boy oh boy, was that ever evident throughout the course of the episode. Enjoy!
