    The Adventures of Young & Holt – Issue 55 “The Guide”

    The Adventures of Young & Holt – Issue 55 “The Guide”

    In this issue… Young & Holt gather together everything and everyone they need to before heading out to stop Reddington. But before they do that, they need to find All Seasons Valley. A task, not easily done. But one that needs to be done quickly.







    We’re burning daylight, so we’d best get on with where they’re at…

    Gunn for Hire – Episode 16 “Two Sides”

    Gunn for Hire – Episode 16 “Two Sides”

    If there’s one thing you need to know about the alleyways in Chicago, is that there’s a lot of twists and turns. If there’s two things you need to know about the alleyways in Chicago, is that you don’t walk through them unless you’re looking for trouble. And the third thing – it’s the secrets they hold. The saying goes, ‘Seeing is Believing.’ For folks scraping by in Chicago in 1933 if they can’t hold it in their hands, it’s phonus balonus and a waste of their time. But for Grace Gunn, our Shamus and her three compadres they might start seeing things with their peepers they don’t want to believe. And what they are getting themselves into could be just like those alleyways, with twists and turns and even a dead end or three.

    The Adventures of Young & Holt – Issue 54: “The Professor”

    In this issue… Young & Holt make arrangements for a guide to take them to all Seasons Valley to stop Samuel Reddington. But they also need to visit a man of letters – Professor Zig Waller – who might be able to offer a bit more insight as to what they’re about to face.







    The boys are on the move, so we’d best be too, so let’s see where they’re at…

    Gunn for Hire – Episode 15 “Pulling An Irving”

    Looks like our crew has got themselves caught up in something. Whether it’s related to their case, or part of something bigger, or hell, maybe a bit of both, remains to be seen. One thing we do know for sure, is that Grace Gunn is down for the count, and that’s got her three friends shaking more than a soldier on leave in a Tomato Market. And if you know anything about these four, it’s probably about to get worse.Oh yeah, and one more thing. See we got a contest going on. We’ve got a sleek pair of rats and mice – you know, the bones you roll in those back alleys – that’s dice for the rest of you. It’s a nice set from our chums at Norse Foundry. I’m no snitch, but here’s the deal. Simply leave a review for either this podcast or ‘The Adventures of Young & Holt.’ We’d like 5 stars but times are tough, so as many stars as you can spare.

Come for Young & Holt, Stay for Gunn for Hire

I love Gunn for Hire and the whole noir genre. The episodes are set up like a classic radio show, with ad breaks for products that are in universe which is such a fun touch. Also the GM is super cool!
