Welcome! Come on in! This is a handshake, a how-do-you-do, a kiss on the cheek in the French way. Bienvenue, my friend. Consider yourself GREETED. This episode is like an instruction manual for the show, so If you've got no idea what's going on, or if you just wanna hang out with the cast for a few minutes, this is for you. We try to keep it short and to the point. We do...okay!tl;dr We use games to help us improvise stories, then we make a big "thing" about it, and you can listen to that "thing." This show is that "thing." If you're digging it, if the vibes are righteous, you can get even more of us and the things we make on our Patreon.  It's an incredible deal.

This is the first chapter in the story of how our trio met, and the events that would bring them back together so many years later.

This is not the full episode. I assume it didn't upload correctly for whatever reason. You can find a full episode on another podcast app though, the issue seems to only be specific to this app.
