May 12, 2020 6:28 PM - Subscribe

After a stunning victory in Orzen, the Society of Banners and Bright Returns must now face the cold light of day. Bodies wounded, hollows damaged, and reputations scarred, Broun, Thisbe, and Valence recuperate as best they can.

Movies are on hold, sports are cancelled, but podcasts? Baby podcasts are releasing FOUR HOUR EPISODES for random interludes. Times are wild.

This week, The Society of Banners and Bright Returns wants to start a revolution.

Thisbe learns that she doesn't have to radiate everything she is.

Broun has someone's number (number 9, number 9, number 9).

Valence spreads the word, that you'll be free.


Clementine is not a girl who misses much.

Featuring Austin, Ali, Janine, Dre, Jack

The beatles subtheming is me, not the episode, and I accidentally did it on two of them probably because of watching Ben Gibbard's charity beatles livestream last week, and I could choose to either expand it or take it out. Roll up for the mystery tour.

Clem's beach drink is blue curacao, apple juice, grapefruit juice, falernum.

Five star podcast! Five! Star! Runtme!

God bringing Clem in to the other team's downtime was SO GOOD. She is such a TOTAL SHIT and Jack is doing a great job.

I'm digging Valence being a cool intelligent cloud dude. He comes from a people called the "Nobel" and he's a gas? Nice. Spectacular. Love it.

>He comes from a people called the "Nobel" and he's a gas? Nice.

God DAMMIT I didn't even connect that until you said it. He probably designed the entire character around that pun.

I know I would lol.

In the latest episode of Waypoint Radio Austin let drop that his bosses at Vice pressured him to drop Friends at the Table or "bring it in house." Wow, fuck that! He rightly refused, because FatT isn't his to unilaterally turn over to Vice like that. I seriously doubt Jeff Gerstmann would have ever asked him to drop a side project like that, lots of other GB editors have side podcasts.

I really kinda wish he had stayed at Giant Bomb. It seems like his experience running Waypoint really soured him on the whole industry, but I loved the freelance writing work he was bringing in to GB, and I feel like Jeff was supportive of the idea because Alex kept doing it for a while after Austin left. The folks at GB get more leeway since they're subscription driven, and text articles are super cheap content to run compared to the video GB predominantly deals in.
