    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."

    The Tale of Foolums Gap

    WARNING MAJOR STRANGER THINGS SPOILERS. If you don't want to find out who's aging backwards, and who is secretly his own father's ghost, don't listen to the first five minutes. We could also be way off base with our theories. Our story this week is another from the Skagit area, deceptively called "The Maiden of Deception Pass." It's not a Western though, we tried. We also tried our best to talk about anything other than this story.
