    Go on a walk down memory lane with us as we reminisce about the Search Engines of Old! Guess what's still around? Dogpile.

    History’s Sloppiest Seconds

    We have a special guest with us this week, Andrew McKee of the Brobdingnagian Bards (aka the ones what done our theme song). He's here just in time to hear a story that's very... goose shit-centric. There's no way around it, just strap in and get ready.

    Known Pea-Sleepers

    You've heard the story of Little Red Riding Hood already, but have you heard the story of the gaslighting panther version? Or the version where a panther desperately wants to be the mother to two vicious little girls? We have.

    Rumpelstiltskinning a Stripclub for Horses

    We've got another listener-suggested story for you this week, and it's another Shakespeare-Professor-Authorized (TM) story, fresh off the presses from Russia. This is a Russian story that somehow does not feature a Vasilisa, so we're in uncharted territory.

    Cakes & Babes

    We have a listener-suggested story this week, carefully decoded from Scottish Brogue, though it didn't make a lot more sense once decoded. This week's story is "The Ballad of Tam Lin."

    In this week's ramblecast we completely revamp the NFL: from new team naming conventions to new rules and layers, to team themes that must be obeyed.

    Bomb-Ass Cave Kids

    We skipped last week, so we kind of forgot how to do this. This episode is kind of a slow build, like a Lovecraft story or that Phil Collins song people seem to like. This week we're reading "The King Who Wanted to See Paradise."
