Episode 329: La Brea and Le Franc
We know you want to get a look at Dave's Tar Pit Diorama (sculpted by the great Sean Cooper and molded at The Alchemy Works), so here it is! Since we didn't have time last show to dig into the insides of Le Franc Tireur #15, we now take the time to get into the articles therein. Oui, Oui, we, promised that we would not speak in French accents for the show but Jeff manages to make a French
Episode 328: Lumberjacks and Le Franc Fifteens
Le Franc Tireur has put out another gem. Le Franc Tireur #15 featuring some fantastic maps from Steve Swan and Tom Repetti. We take a look at these fun boards as well as the new Arid/Desert rules.

Episode 327: Sunny Adam Lunney
It is an honor to have the illustrious, bright and optimistic Adam Lunney appear on the show all the way from Canberra, Australia. Yes, this is THE Adam Lunney who authored the books We Together and Ready to Strike. Once again you can see from his credentials that we are unworthy to have Adam on this lowly podcast.

This is AMAZING!
There's not many ASL podcasts, but even if there were 1,000,004 of them, this one would still be the best and most enjoyable. It has it all: ASL education, ASL history, humorous hosts, wonderful guests, and it's rich, man, it's rich! Anyway, if you can't tell, I really enjoy it.
I’ve been listening for a few months. It’s pretty cool but I don’t like the Rules. I like the silly song but I don’t want to have to listen to a podcast with a notebook and pen and the rule book . Sure, I’m a bit of a newbie and barely grasp the rules but this is not the format for learning them. I want to hear about all sorts of ASL stuff even if you have to mention MMP. Thanks.
Great ASL Pod
Even if you are new to ASL (like me) this is a great ASL podcast. The back and forth of the hosts is hilarious at times and their interviews and thoughts are insightful. Great stuff.
