OOPT 43rd Campaign Episode 2

It's the 2nd episode of the game where Bob and Dave and Kai and Katy and Liz play Fictionary in The Weird Way, a way so weird it begat this podcast and put these words in your eyes, and maybe some other ones in your ears. Kai brings out a new word here, plus Katy somehow clears up the monumental tumult of her "ulotrichous" round. (Except not entirely - we now know it's pronounced 'yoo-LOW-trih-cuss'. Okay NOW it's all resolved. Whew. Lost some sleep there.)


OOPT 43rd Campaign Episode 1

If you thought we'd run out of pals that are interested in appropriating their precious off-the-clock hours by recording themselves inventing dictionary definitions like "to rake shopping carts" or "a disappointingly inauthentic shoe", then, ironically, maybe you also have enough time in your life for such inconsequential activities. Call us! Meanwhile, check out the beginning of the 43rd Campaign, featuring a new player as well as the final scores from that nutty, nutty 42nd Circuit!...


OOPT 42nd Circuit Episode 5

Hey, we believe in authenticity!! When we sit down to record an episode of Of Or Pertaining To, we are prepared to open up our souls in whatever way we believe would make the best use of our listeners' valuable time. So when we recorded this episode, it just so happens that we decided that explaining the real definition of "bronstrops", and admitting who wrote all the fake ones from last week, would be the most pragmatic and efficient content to allow to emerge from our mouthbrains. Take a...


OOPT 42nd Circuit Episode 4

Things are really getting down to the wire here on the 42nd Circuit. This is the one where Maureen steps forward to Pagemaster the bejeezus out of the latest round. And if you don't know what that all means, imagine how much difficulty you'd have sussing out the definition of the word "stormcock". Playing Fictionary, as we do on this podcast, is incredibly difficult. And painful. And disastrous for our long-term health. And yours. And theirs. Wait, what?


OOPT 42nd Circuit Episode 3

Relax, this episode exists now. You can stop wondering what to do after listening to 42nd Circuit Episode 2. This podcast is here to settle you down for crying out loud. Hey! Stop making a scene! Just listen to the episode you were just so impatient for like five seconds ago. Put down that... where did you get that tuba?? This is a disaster.


OOPT 42nd Circuit Episode 2

Just like that, here's the next episode! This is the one where Bad Katy takes over as pagemaster and is awesome and so are you. But also we find out who voted correctly and/or incorrectly on Jen's word from the last episode, and Jen's awesomeness is also a factor. Someday, when the rich history of this monumental podcast is studied, perhaps what will be understood as the key ingredient to its extremely high quality is the individual awesomeness of each participant and listener. You guys?...


OOPT 42nd Circuit Episode 1

And so begins the next epic battle. Hey, how come it gives it gravity or whatever to begin the first sentence of a thing with "And"? Is that a Bible thing? Anyway, in this episode we begin a new game, dubbed the "42nd Circuit", and we go over the final scores from the previous game, dubbed the "41st Flight", plus we chat a lot. It's all very podcast-y.


OOPT 41st Flight Episode 5

Hey you! Yeah you, the one with all the, uh, awesomeness! Come over here and listen to this episode of our podcast! It's the one where Bob kicks off the fifth and final round of the 41st flight!!! What does that mean? WHAT does that MEAN? Never mind that, you're way too awesome to be troubling yourself with such questions. Let other, less awesome people worry about that stuff. You can listen to this episode while plotting your next scheme to drop awesome-bombs on everyone around you.


OOPT 41st Flight Episode 4

Here's the fourth part of the 41st flight. It is a flight of 5 rounds. So after this one there will be the last one. Or perhaps just as significantly, before this one there was the third one. Communication is super duper important, don't you think? Bend your ears at this here audio file so that you may hear Marshall reveal the results of his "Kish" round, because you've probably been wondering for the last seven days if the word "bastard" was really used in an actual dictionary definition...


OOPT 41st Flight Episode 3

Hey, it's this thing again! Here's a new weekly episode of the podcast where we play Fictionary, aka "Balderdash", in such a way that shows off our world class creativity, ingenuity, and obnoxiousness. This time we get the results of Ariel's previous "megamere" round, Marshall spins up a new round, and Kai confides in us all about a shocking personal routine of his.


OOPT 41st Flight Episode 2

This is the 2nd Episode of the 41st Flight! As promised, we're releasing the first two episodes of our new format on September 1 and 2. So here's the second part of that. In this one, we reveal how Kai's "meline" round turned out from the previous episode, and Ariel kicks off a new round for us all to puzzle over. You will be so delighted that you will turn into a sputtering cloud of beautiful miasma, undulating rhythmically on the horizon for all your coworkers to behold. But it's Labor Day...


OOPT 41st Flight Episode 1

Welcome back! Yeah, you! Welcome back to Of Or Pertaining To! This September 1 release is the first of two new episodes dropping on two consecutive days! The second part of this release will be on Monday, September 2, and then we'll release new ones every Monday! This first one is shorter than how future episodes will be. But quit complainin', there's another one right behind! Bob and Marshall and Jenny and Ariel and Kai are back playing Fictionary with their usual out-of-control...


OOPT Episode 40

We at Of Or Pertaining To, we have this thing where we hang out, and sometimes we play the game we know as Fictionary, which some know as Balderdash, and we have more fun being very inventive about it than anything else about it. And sometimes we record it for you forty times. Did you know that.


OOPT Episode 39

This is probably the best episode. Yes, we are suggesting that it is perhaps the best episode of anything ever. Maybe. Probably. If we're talking just about episodes our particular podcast, and we'll remind you now that it is a podcast that consists entirely of some goofy buddies playing the word game known as Fictionary, this episode is surely the finest achievement. Mostly because it's the 39th episode. 39ths are always incredible. Just the fact of something being 39th generally reduces...


OOPT Episode 38

Most people speculate that we write this text at the very end of the production process, after all the recording and editing. But in fact, this is the very first step in the creation of an episode. This is due to the fact that we have this really cool iPhone app where you enter the text that describes a podcast episode and it generates the episode for you in its entirety. And it AUTOMATICALLY matches with the tone of this text. Don't be so disappointed; all podcasts do it, as well as all...


OOPT Episode 37

When you listen to this 37th episode of Of Or Pertaining To, which once again is five friends playing Fictionary except what the hell are they even doing, please try to remember that there is definitely nothing more productive they could possibly have been doing with their time. All of the more important work was already completed, or else they would have done that instead. Except for Maureen, our guest for this episode, who was pretty behind on her office work but did this episode during...


OOPT Episode 36

There are episodes of a podcast where goofy people screw around playing Fictionary and submit lots of absurd definitions and then there are EPISODES of a podcast where GOOFY PEOPLE screw AROUND playing Fictionary AND submit lots of ABSURD DEFINITIONS. They are both the same thing and this is one of those.


OOPT Episode 35

Here for the 35th time is an episode of this podcast. Released worldwide (worldwide!) on April 1st, 2019, this podcast unit screws everything up by trying to take the solemn occasion of April Fools Day really seriously. And the world (the world!) is much better for it.


OOPT Episode 34

Here is the 34th episode of these merry goings-on. Once again, we play Fictionary, pushing the very boundaries of what could potentially count as "playing Fictionary", for our own amusement and maybe someone else's. But mostly ours. We suppose you could just go to a movie instead, but at least on our podcast you don't need to know any of our superhero backstories. Although if you're curious, Kai's is that he can transform into a furnished studio apartment.


OOPT Episode 33

This is Episode 33 of the podcast that it's an episode of. There were 32 episodes prior to this one, which makes it an exceptionally appropriately numbered episode. We intend to submit this to the International Acclaim Panel For Excellence In Sensible Numeration Of Episode Type Things so that the whole world may know of our accomplishment. We'll count them again before we submit, though. Measure-twice-cut-once type of thing. Don't you think our episode is a much better example of outstanding...
