In this episode our heroes are joined by friend Lane to talk about the new MWL. Some cards are gone from the game and we should probably talk about it. Chris’s private decks were hacked so we should probably talk about that as well. Eady rode some bikes and apparently we have to talk about that too.

Episode 82: Blood and Water

In this episode our heroes are joined by friend Lane to talk about Blood and Water. The first data pack to be name after two liquids. To see if blood really is thicker than water I have adopted Eady and Lane to test how it affects the podcast. Levels of affection; favouritism and nepotism in this episode have been measured and sent to a CERN for analysis.

Episode 74: Daedalus Complex

In this episode our heroes are joined by friend Lane to discuss the cards and that in Daedalus Complex. And that's all the description you need or probably require. I don't know why I think these things need long descriptions. It's a bit of a waste of everyone's time really. And time is precious. It will be night soon and you could be out, setting up nets to catch those thieves that stole from the king!

Episode 71: Quorum

In this episode are joined by friend Lane to talk about the exciting conclusion to the Flashpoint cycle, Quorum. As with all season finales we're expecting conclusions to story lines such as: Was Omar right all along? Were the rumours true about Jackson Howard? Will Smoke win enough money with vape tricks to save the rec centre? Maybe we should just hope for the cliffhanger to not be too suspenseful.

Episode 70: Martial Law

In this episode our heroes are joined by friend Lane to discuss Martial Law. And Chris didn’t write a proper description on the way home like he normally does on a Monday. He was playing iPhone games instead so this meta narrative will have to do instead. Oh well. Maybe Chris will try harder next time.

Episode 69: Like a Chip Butty

In this episode our heroes are joined by the fine fellow of Terminal7, Nels and Jesse. And what fine bed fellow they do make. Together we all journey into the past using only the power of their minds to discuss the bygone era of 2016. Was Lucas’ last cycle Mumbad or Mumgood? Was Damons first cycle Flash-on point or Flash-not quite as on point as we would have liked? Did the MWL do all we had hoped? All this and slightly more!
