Questionable characters

5 years ago, Josiah marched on Tyrolia during a game of Diplomacy, despite him giving me constant reassurances that the army was going to be used to defend from Munich. I will never forget this insult, and the fact that he has an engaging, well-informed podcast with interesting guests and topical discussions does not change that.
