While Leap Day may now be over, I’m taking my own leap forward with a brand new podcast:
Each week, Lex Friedman and I will apply our not not inconsiderable problem-solving prowess to a listener-submitted issue. Since we’ve just launched, we’re short on said listeners and submissions, so it would be quite helpful if you wanted to give a listen and/or click the button to leave us a voice message (anonymously) with your problem you want solved.
Boardgame-wise, newest games I’ve played include Mystery! Motive for Murder (which features Edward Gorey art) and Booty, although Zavandor and Grand Austria Hotel are the two I’ve continued to enjoy the most. Videogame-wise, in addition to the ever-present SolForge addiction, I’ve fallen back into Marvel Heroes. Yes, as an aRPG, it’s not nearly as in-depth as the (also free, delightful) Path of Exile, but where PoE is very hardcore, MH provides a pleasant casual experience branded with my favorite Marvel characters, so I can run around as Luke Cage while Deadpool follows me and tells pirate jokes.
I’ll be telling a few jokes of my own in less than two weeks at the High Mud Comedy Festival, as will Ophira Eisenberg, Dave Hill, Sean Patton, Tom Lewis, Mark Jagiello, and the amazing Tig Notaro. If you are (or can be) in the Berkshires, and like comedy, you should buy tickets and come enjoy some live stand-up.
If you will not be in the Berkshires, but still want to laugh, go back to the top of this post and listen to my new podcast. Or you can read some of my recent columns about Leap Year and Spring Cleaning. Or you could inhale some nitrous oxide, but listening to and reading my comedy is probably better for your health.
