Episode 61: Don't call it a comeback

3/25/2021
You might not know this, but it's been just over a year since we last recorded. Lies you say? It's true...all of it (insert Han Solo meme here). Gordon finally felt safe enough to come out of his Covid cave, Mikhail's grown a beard to look more like Gordon, Camden got tired of not podcasting so he started his own show, and Franch welcomed baby Magnolia to his family! Proud Papa indeed!! The gang recaps the past year's worth of X-Wing happenings and whines about the lack of a promised points...

Episode 60: Franch has the Coronavirus

3/9/2020
Fine, he probably doesn't, but we thought we saw him licking his iPad and iPads are made in China, so our logic is infallible. Topics mostly revolved around recent Store Championships and the current Hyperspace meta, and some discussion about new players getting involved in their first competitive games. And some brief Steelers talk. 00:11:15 - WAR STORIES | 01:07:20 - FLIGHT PREP | 01:31:00 - STOLEN PLANS | 01:35:10 - STEELERS TALK

Episode 59: POINTS POINTS POINTS

1/14/2020
Let's face it -- when the points change in X-Wing every six months, it's just the best. Not much got nerfed this time around, but a LOT of generic ships were lowered in cost. We're excited, and you should be too!

Episode 56: Worlds 2019

10/15/2019
Franch and Mikhail attempt to host the show on their own without their fearless leader, Gordon. But don’t worry, they are joined by Mark Moriarity from Hangar 19 to discuss the hyperspace trial that happened this past weekend in Louisville where Franch proved no practice is the best practice. The guys also talk about the hyperspace meta and then some general world championship info to get listeners prepped and ready for what they should expect.

Episode 54: Use the Force, [insert your name here]

8/27/2019
Gordon, Mikhail, and guest Ryan Fleming discuss the typical things you'd expect on a show that's about X-Wing, but we all know why Ryan is there, right? You'll know when it's time to stop listening if you don't care about the inevitable Pittsburgh Steelers sportsball talk. Sorry, no timestamps either. Failing to write down the timestamps is what happens when Franch isn't there, so blame him, not Gordon. In fact, that's sage advice for just about everything: blame Franch.

Louisville Hyperspace Trial winner Joe Konopa and local Louisville player Rebel Mike join a Mikhail-less cast to discuss the recent tourney that was held in the Bluegrass state.
