In this episode, the guys talk about gnomes. I'm not kidding. You should check it out if you don't believe me. We go into a large amount of detail on the creature that we imagine might be a gnome, and then Matt called them eccentric, it was a thing. Can you tell I'm in a hurry to get this posted?

March 16, 2017
In this episode, the guys tackle FEAR at the table (talk about a Gothnog's dream). What basically morphed into an episode about creating immersion using the five senses will still inspire the heck out of you. At the very least, you'll listen to some other, sexier podcast instead.
We don't set the bar very high for ourselves...
