The Grey Bastards: Jonathan French Interview

Honestly, one of the most legitimately informative episodes we have ever recorded thanks to Jonathan French. Want to know how the Sludgeman travels around the Lots? Need an answer for your theory about Jackal's lineage? Do you want to stop being eaten alive by mosquitoes every summer? These questions and more finally answered! We talk goth hobbits, ax throwing, and orc chili. Also, fuck you Cloudy; you know what you did. Follow @JFrenchAuthor on Twitter for some prime cuts and The Lot Lands news!

Special thanks to VOLO for the intro and outro music.

The Grey Bastards: Part Three

Just in time for Halloween, Dan and Luke hit you with some of the best/worst fantasy couples costumes. Hit us up @DCitaBC with your entry in the #fantasycouplescontest. Or skip right to the hawg talk (13:22). First things first, there have got to be ugly elves, right? There has GOT to be an Ugfuck elf equivalent, right? Also, don't believe the orc *clap* prop *clap* a *clap* gan *clap* da. Luke and Dan create a few new achievement award categories for hoofs to try out. Slophead of the Year? Most Valuable Hawg?

We are interviewing Jonathan French but that episode will come out in two weeks, not next week. After that we will be returning Alec Hutson's The Raveling series with The Silver Sorceress!

The Grey Bastards: Part Two

The Bastards have a wild government. As well respected fantasy constitutional scholars we've got your questions covered with in depth analysis. Also interested in civil engineering? Dan uses his wall building expertise to call out the Orc propaganda. And if you're looking to pad that slophead resume a little get yourself an internship at that axe throwing place down the street. You know that place that looks kinda fun but never worth the money? Go check it out.

The Grey Bastards: Part One

Your favorite podcasting frails get right into the mud with some of these dirty hogs. Luke and Dan have already fallen head over heels for Ugfuck. Don't believe the lies; orcs float. Also, we can all agree the half-orcs are over complicating things. Keep it simple, slophead! Finally, the boys congratulate Jackal on his sweet new career opportunity.
