D&D 33 – Book Club

This week Ryan and Crofton are joined by Michael Hodgins of the world famous Good, Bad, or Bullshit podcast to discuss some geeky fiction, including The Lies of Locke Lamora and Leviathan Wakes and it’s television adaptation, The Expanse. Ryan hit the movies solo to take in 1917 and explain how World War 1 was bad (very bad). Things take a turn for the serious as Mike shares a story about sleep training a young child with anxiety while Ryan talks about a slight pregnancy scare. All of this, and – for you Canadians – some Ontario school strike thoughts too!

Speaking of notable news, Ryan drops a whopper this episode as he has just downloaded the latest Murphy Family expansion pack DLC in the form of baby number three. COME LISTEN AND BE MERRY!

Happy Halloween everyone! Come join Ryan and Crofton as they run through their respective Halloweens with kids. How to balance it all? Do you put a bowl out on the steps to stop folks from waking the baby? Did dirty teenagers empty the bowl even if you have a sign that says “Take 1 or 2 please”? Well this is the show for you. The boys brave the rain to reach the dungeon where they discuss the new hotness in The Outer Worlds and the old hotness that is Ron Swanson. All of this and Crofton gets his bike stolen again.
