In an early episode, we mentioned that a Letters Page Bingo type thing could be fun. As a result, awesome Letters Page listener Kyle Grossman has created THIRTY different Letters Page Bingo cards, and you can find them all here!

Let's make some excuses!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 28:36

Since we got immediately down to business on Tuesday's Deadline/Lifeline episode, this interlude is a good deal more... fast and loose.

Things we cover in this interlude:

  • The Wraith and Ermine
  • Chokepoint or Choke?
  • Our brothers
  • Gen Con
  • (Dark) Visionary
  • James Bowie
  • David Bowie
  • Knives
  • K.N.Y.F.E.s
  • Paige Huntlys (Paiges Huntly?)
  • Sergeant Steel
  • Stargent Seal
  • Animals

Also, as promised, here's an art!

How do we get through ALL OF THAT in under half an hour? Guess you'll just have to listen to the whole thing to find out!

Oh, also, the very exciting upcoming schedule!

  • July 4th: Chrono-Ranger
  • July 11th: Plague Rat
  • July 18th: RA!
  • July 25th: The Ennead
  • July 27th: Interlude - Nemeses

Things are really heating up here on the Letters Page! And not just because it's a hot summer here in St. Louis. But also because of that!

Tarogath... the destroyer? Or savior? Or just all-around jerk? You decide!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 86:29

This is a no-nonsense episode! (Meaning we only engage in minimal nonsense.) It's not the longest episode we've recorded, but it might be the most jam-packed with exciting info!

We start off by talking about the Enclave of the Endling, including proper pronunciation of the names of many Endlings and their fallen races. Got questions about the Enclave of the Endlings? Submit a question! We'll do an Interlude on the Enclave some day.

More info on blood magic and vampires and such today, around the 23 minute mark. And in the questions, as well!

Shortly after that, we actually delve into more of the details of the OblivAeon event than we've revealed before. Makes sense, as Tarogath is rather important to that event!

Just after 41 minutes in, Christopher said, "Tarogath, who became the villain Deadline, who then became the villain Lifeline." (Italics for emphasis.) Definitely meant hero there. Just talking too fast. Whoops! Lifeline's not a villain.

This coming Thursday's Interlude has already been recorded, but you still have some time to get your Chrono-Ranger questions in! Send 'em our way, buckaroos!

Jun 20, 2017

Today, we talk about Michael Conteh of Conteh Energy Corporation! Surely, that's where you know him from, right?

Show Notes:

Run Time: 61:31

Right in the beginning, we mention that The Operative will come up later in the podcast. And then we follow-through on that promise! We talk about stuff between The Naturalist and The Organization - which does happen to involve The Operative - just after the six minute mark.

Lots of exciting things in today's episode, including space adventures, business take-overs, and even the origin of Akash'Thriya!

The Naturalist has to deal with Equity early on, but we'll also hear from the Slaughterhouse Six - lots of people want to kill The Naturalist, apparently.

As we have done before and we will certainly do again, we discuss how unsettling birds are in this episode. Listen to the few minutes leading up to the 30 minute mark for that gem. I'm certain it'll come up again in the future.

The future holds a lot for The Naturalist, but we can't spoil TOO much for now - lots of story things will come up in the long run!

We've already recorded all of the episodes from now through the end of June, so send in your questions for the Chrono-Ranger episode! We'll announce our schedule through the beginning of August next week.

Let's talk about a shady organization that reaches throughout the Multiverse!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 67:07

At the beginning of the podcast, Christopher predicts that this episode will have a run time of an hour and twelve minutes. Turns out, didn't even make it that long!

This episode, we cover F.I.L.T.E.R. in all of its incarnations, get into The Block - the extradimensional F.I.L.T.E.R. prison and HQ, and also talk about the story of Sergeant Steel and his Steel Squadron!

Just before the 17 minute mark, we mention that the K.N.Y.F.E. episode is essential listening for the story we're about to tell. If you haven't listened to that one yet, go do so!

We get to introduce the character of Felix Stone in this episode! Exciting times. (We also dispose of him. Whoops! Spoilers.)

You also get to learn of A.C.R.O.N.Y.M.!

As promised, here is the Time-Crazed Prisoner from The Block:

As we mention at the end of the episode, the next few recordings are all going to happen pretty quickly. Paul and I will be out of town for a wedding in a couple weeks, and we're all more nose-to-the-grindstone than ever right now, so we're doing a pile of recording this coming Friday, and then skipping a week for weddings, and then doing another pile of recording the Friday after that. So! Hit us up with questions for these characters ASAP!

  • The Naturalist
  • Deadline / Lifeline
  • Chrono-Ranger

Thanks for listening!

She's tough, she's Scottish, and she's got energy powers! It's Agent Paige Huntly: A.K.A. the hero known as K.N.Y.F.E.!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 55:34

First thing first! We're both older - but certainly no wiser - than we were last episode! Happy Birthday to us.

We first introduced the character of Paige Huntly in last week's Chokepoint episode, as their stories intertwine before Agent Huntly ever becomes K.N.Y.F.E.

When we get to the Progeny fight, we go into a bit of a discussion on whether Progeny's head flying away is cool or silly. Who is right? You decide!

And then we're off to SPACE!

Lots of great stuff about alternate realities, people being awful, her Scottish-ness, and even more in the questions section.

Get your questions about F.I.L.T.E.R., Sergeant Steel, and The Block now!

Also, this episode's post-credits bit is the longest one ever, I think!
