    DFWaG Episode #29: "20NICETeen"

    Many years since I was here- on the street I was passin' my time away. To the left and to the right, buildings towering to the sky. It's outta sight in the dead of night. Here I am, and in this city, with a fistful of dollars, and baby, you'd better believe…

    DFWaG Episode #28: "I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream"

    Well then. This was recorded on 10/14, and is one of our shortest episodes yet. We apologize for the absence: its been a rough couple of weeks.

    -Columb’ohio, and Lovecraft’s English
    -Tropical Tipples, and (I guess?) Tasty Teas
    -“Lemme get a Big Boy"
    -The Environment, Autonomy, and Body Horror in IHNMAIMS
    AND MORE.

    DFWaG Episode #27: "Mario and The Magician"

    -Halloween Plans/Pumpkin Patchin’
    -"Comedy Central Presents”
    -JBC n’ PC by DFWaG

    DFWaG Episode #26: "Tales From Margaritaville"

    DFWaG Episode #26: "Tales From Margaritaville"

    A Sunday upload? Listen, "Mdweek Madness" didn’t really pan out, as we ourselves were wasting away in Margaritaville. Even still, welcome to DFWaG Magnum- extra long, extra dense, extra tangential, for your pleasure. This week we discussed Jimmy Buffett’s “Take Another Road”, and found ourselves taken aback by the earnest, unassuming nature of Jimmy’s writing style, and ideology. Also in this episode:
    -Negligible Irresponsibility
    -Echo of Nostalgia
    -Steve’s Secession Selection
    -Vatican Goofin’
    -Listener Shoutouts
    -Wasting Away in Margaritaville
    AND MORE.

    DFWaG Episode #25: "Indiana Jones and The Stolen Podcast"

    DFWaG Episode #25: "Indiana Jones and The Stolen Podcast"

    What’s really interesting about this episode, is how many times we begin to discuss our novella selection, only to be dragooned by American hero, and archeologist, Indiana Jones. Really, big part of this episode is Jared explaining the trajectory of the Disneyland/DisneySea attraction: Indiana Jones and the Temple of The Forbidden Eye. Additionally:
    -Grand Coulee Lifestyle #LiveAuthentic
    -Thank God for Jimmy Buffet, holy s**t
    -GADZOOKS/EGAD
    -Friend of the Pod, R L Stine
    -The Adventure Genre, and Grounding in “Reality”
    AND MORE.
