The Vagrant: Part Three

Luke and Dan recommend podcasts they have been listening to during quarantine. If you don't want to hear us talk about Bambi and Chocolate Bear, the book discussion starts at 5:49. Goose with a venom stinger vs an ornery goat: who's got your money? We finally get someone who knows how to make a deal and the boys are tempted. Also, how embarrassing is it when your brain chip kicks into turbo mode while doing the easy Suduko?

Next week we are returning to the Red Rising series with Golden Son! Special thanks to VOLO for the intro and outro music.

The Vagrant: Part Two

We’re getting everybody involved with our first listener submitted rant (skip to 11:45 if sneezing isn’t relatable to you). The Uncivil is looking pretty smart right now, but be honest folks, would you have invested early? Seems like a risky business strategy. And we're once again asking the real questions: are goats predator or prey?

Special thanks to VOLO for the intro and outro music.

The Vagrant: Part One

In a return to form, Dan starts the episode with a profound observation on an everyday issue (5:58 to skip the rant). This world sounds absolutely terrible (#relatable, am I right), but Luke and Dan are very intrigued by the details. Also, what is keeping the Seven so busy that they couldn't send more than one? Is everyone but Gamma playing the new Animal Crossing? The boys wonder what kind of person signs a contract with team Uncivil and Dan unveils the motivation behind this demonic incursion.

Special thanks to VOLO for the intro and outro music.
