The Rook: Part Three

Artificial Christmas tree discussion ahead (10:30 to skip). Luke points out that the Cheque can't be the only one out there and Dan is back on his bouncy house grind. There is one big question this episode and that is, how are you finding this duck? Seriously, how?

Special thanks to VOLO for the intro and outro music.

The Rook: Part Two

Warming up today with our classic love and appreciation of capitalism and how great toys are (10:35 to skip). From their SOPs to their personnel notes this organization has a lot of improvements to make and we're offering our consulting services. Time to max out the stats on random mythological creatures, and Myfanwy is missing some pretty big clues here....

The Rook: Part One

Dan regales us with a tale of woe (14:39 to skip). Off rip, where are you staying? You getting room service? What's the minibar situation? Luke unveils his two cereal system and it is potentially a game changer. Also, a lot of Dr. Crisp talk this episode, so be prepared.

It is not your ears, there is a mysterious buzz on this episode.
