Episode 19 – Lizards & Liches & Ball Gags, Oh My!

Hello adventurous listeners! It’s time once again to embark upon an epic quest otherwise known as episode 19 of the world famous Not Safe For Worker Placement Podcast! This episode we’re talking about role playing, no not the kind you found out your aunt and uncle were into. “Hey Auntie, I was looking for a sweater in your closet and wow, I had no idea you were so into cosplay, that’s really cool!” Auntie,”Uh… What’s cosplay?” No, we’re talking about Role Playing Games! DnD and beyond! Join us as we bring you an actual play DnD 5th edition segment that is fully (some might say overly) produced. And get a glimpse at how Leeandra and I got into this hobby in the first place. They say one is the loneliest number but I’m here to tell you two can be as bad as one when the the two are us and you add funny shaped dice! Join us for this grand adventure!

Episode 18 – Meet The Fakirs

It’s that time again doggedly faithful listener, that’s right, half past a Wallace’s Brass a quarter till Cathala. In this, the 18th episode of The Not Safe For Worker Placement Podcast we get steamy with two Martin Wallace train classics, play the fantastic Five Tribes and discuss our recently completed Charterstone campaign! We also decide to never use the words Man Cave again instead christening the Non Binary Gender Fluid Cave just in time to move out and not be at all in charge of what people call it. We know how to make the most of our time and yours. There’s more improvised musical ads and more general jackassery so don’t miss a minute, because in the immortal words of Steve Miller; Time keeps on slippin, slippin, slippin. Into the kitchen… Or something like that. I’m not good with lyrics. Ciao!

Episode 17 – Emirates of Hacan & Ale

Step right up one and all, young and old! Marvel at the exploits of two idiots the likes of which the board gaming world has never seen! See how they edit their way out of technical glitches, you’ll barely notice! Gape in wonder at their collective ineptitude while simultaneously they manage to keep you in rapped attention with their undeniable down home charm! Do you enjoy rambling, barely coherent conversation about games like Heaven & Ale, Oh My Goods and TI4 between parties that hardly remember playing them? Your in luck! Just a penny for an adult and a haypenny for a child, that’s right step right up and enter the confines of this rickety tent! You’ll hear a bushel of ill-formed opinions and more half-hearted improvised music than you can shake a Crown Royal velvet bag full of polyhedral dice at! That’s right folks, see the one and only Not Safe For Worker Placement Podcast! What..? Not interested..? Scram then you little punk, before I sick the Bearded Lady on ya!

Episode 16 – Legends of the Fog II: Western Love

We cut to a close up of Brad Pitt as he gazes perplexed at Sam Elliott. His expression softens as we realize he has just fully grasped the magnificence of the mustache before him. Sam tries to look away but can’t break the spell of those baby blues as deep as the spring down the trail from his Grandpappy’s place. The gravity of the moment builds and we hear the violins swell- Just then Jake Gyllenhaal throws back the tent flap!

Oh hi, I didn’t see you there. I was just writing a little fanfic inspired by this the 16th episode of The Not Safe For Worker Placement Podcast! I’ll finish it later, I’m sure your not interested in that wholesome little yarn. I bet you are however interested in board games! If so well we’ve got a doosey for ya. Two great interviews with the developer and designer of Western Legends and Fog Of Love! Both interviews pull back the curtain on what it takes to get a game to market in this ever changing board game landscape. Speaking of pulling back the curtain…. There he stands, Donnie Darko wearing the creepy bunny suit and holding the head under his rippling bicep laden arm…

Episode 15 – Board Game Blindness

Once again around The Sun my friends! Or to my Flat Earther friends, once more the sheeple have been fooled by the Illuminati Lizard People into believing in  their flimsy science. I feel ya. Anywhoosle… 2017 was a lot of things, most of them orange and most of them terrible but in one thing we can all agree,  the green M&Ms taste better than the other colors. Oh, and that  board games pretty much killed it last year, that too.

In our premier episode of 2018 we discuss the myriad of great games we played over the holidays including a double dip of Stonemaier Games, Charterstone  & Scythe. As well as Rajas Of The Ganges Fog of Love and many more! Leeandra gets officially diagnosed with a rare condition and in IRL we ponder an upcoming move and Star Wars: The Last Jedi!

So don’t be like the rest of the drones, mindlessly cowing to the military industrial complex. Be an individual and listen to episode 15 of The Not Safe For Worker Placement Podcast because who else will tell you when the secret government agents will be showing up?

Episode 12 – Ghostblusters

Oooooooh, can you feel it? The nip in the air, the spice of the pumpkin latte, the fur of the Ugg caressing your calf? This can mean only one thing, it’s the most wonderful time of the year, the time when the freaks can walk the streets free of judgment hidden behind masks of celebrated serial killers. That’s right it’s time for the obligatory Halloween episode! Bwaahahaaaaaaa! Now quit peeing your pants in fright we’ve got a lot of show for ya! Leeandra joins in the first half before going to trick or treat in China (I guess they have the best candy corn?) She, Lilly and I preview the Kickstarter game Epic Monster Tea Party before she departs. Then I enlist the help of one of the best game designers out there, Jamey Stegmaier and one of the “funniest” pod-casters, Steve Spang, for our big Halloween spooky skeptic segment. Bare with me as I tortuously try to sound intelligent… If only there weren’t hours of previous audio to refute this. So join us won’t you? As we take you on a fright of fancy across an episode with more bite than Drac, more Friday’s than the 13th and more creep than Harvey Weinstein!

Episode 11 – Suitably Sweet

Hello Boss, It’s me The Not S̶a̶f̶e̶ … uh…Suitable For Worker Placement Podcast. I’m calling to let you know that I could and probably should stay home do to illness and also to inform you that I will report for duty at my scheduled time. Although I am gravely sick, I hate the idea of leaving you in the lurch, so I’ll be there! Why am I calling to tell you this? Is it because I want to solidify myself as a really dedicated worker? Is it just to ease you fears since others have called in frequently lately? Well I’ll tell you why it isn’t. It isn’t because I plan on going to a raging kegger next Friday and am absolutely sure I won’t be working on Saturday, that much you can be sure of!

And so it goes listeners in this the 11th Episode! We fight through sniffles, sneezes and the occasional hacking coughing fit (mostly edited out, I think) to bring you a fantastic double sized episode! We’ve always lived by the motto that it’s about quantity not quality, always leave em wanting less, that’s what we always say! We talk games we’ve played including Magic Maze and Viticulture and have a fantastic interview with Jerry Hawthorne, the creator behind Mice & Mystics and Stuffed Fables. He gives us some candid behind the scenes info on the making and inspiration of these two fantastic family games. Then in our feature we give some recommendations of games to play with your family, from little kiddos on up to your surly Uncle! So start coughing in front of your boss right now and set yourself up for a relaxing day off tomorrow to devote your full attention to this stupendous 11th episode of The Not S̶a̶f̶e̶ Suitable For Worker Placement Podcast!

Schedule Update!

Hello fine friends, just a little note to let you know we are transitioning to a twice a month release schedule, which will free us up to actually play more games and be more prepared to give you a great show each episode. We had decided to do this pretty early on as soon as we had built up a bit of a back catalog so that new listeners would have plenty to chew on while we make more episodes. So drop in every two weeks for a rip roarin’, routin’, tootin’ car crash of board game goodness! We’ll see ya next episode!
