Ep 85: Time is a Flat CB

6/29/2022
As the loops get weirder, Hopper formulates a plan. Mackie discovers a truly fresh hell while CB plays eternal guinea pig. Anton probably does some cool shit with N-Zed just to make Hopper jealous.

If you need to focus purely on escapism right now, we get it. You can skip ahead to about the 13 minute mark for standard intro...

Let it never be said that Team Meatbag lets adventure go to voicemail. That's right, this week the crew answers the call and heads off into the swampy wilds of Menkaure 2.

Ep 75: Suddenly Seeking Seomgim

4/20/2022
It's all aboard the Admiral Grace as the crew rounds up their various passengers, crates, and personal effects in preparation for a whirlwind tour around the star map. Will the crew make it off Menkaure without one more side quest? How many riffs on the name Constantopolis will Stardaddy allow before he starts throwing dice? And is it actually theft if the people whose property you confiscate might one day be passengers aboard your transport vessel? These questions and more answered with a...

Ep 74: Man Meat is for Closers

4/13/2022
They say no one wants to work these days* but the crew of the Grace is scrounging for every job they can get their collectively questionable little hands on. Not content with the next step along Scrip's quest line, the team heads back to the Skullpants' I Fucking Love this Place Bar and Grill to feel out a few more potential gigs. Anton and CB negotiate with the dubious help of too many bloomin' onions while Mackie and Hopper ask to see the manager. It's actually a lot funnier than it...

Ep 73: The Pinky and the Pain

4/6/2022
This week wraps up the starter quest for Port Hughes with a bang. Well, not a literal bang, more like a big win for Mackie, a big ask from CB, and a big bit of morally questionable medical mayhem from Hopper. It's pretty gross, y'all, but at least no one sticks anything in their eye this time. If you enjoy the show, please follow us on your favorite platform for new episodes every Wednesday.

Ep 72: Winner Winner, Ducock Dinner

3/30/2022
The cards are shuffled, the players are assembled, and the house is ready to win big. While CB and Hopper lurk on the sidelines, Anton and Mackie sit down to a good old fashioned poker game.

And why exactly are poker chips still a thing in a fully digital monetary system? Hit that play button for the answers to these questions and more! If you enjoy the show, please...

Ep 71: Thumbs are Trump

With a new job in hand, Team Meatbag heads back to Skullpants Bar and Grill to snag Anton and figure out just how to get a thumb from a bunch a dudes running an underground card game without resorting to violence.

3/16/2022
This week the team wanders on in to the Skullpants Bar and Grill for some good ol' fashioned jalepeno poppers with a side of murder hobo-ing for hire. Anton meets a few of his heroes from back home and CB proves that just because you aren't good at stealth doesn't mean you shouldn't keep trying to pickpocket folks anyway.

Ep 68: The Last of Mackie's Privateers

3/2/2022
With Crocea Mors firmly in the rear viewport, it's time for the remaining crew to start thinking about the next 30,000 big ones they'll need to keep the ship running. Fortunately they've heard rumors of a bona fide hive of scum and villainy hiding somewhere in the Menkaure system and it turns out Anton has always wanted to turn pirate. Now all they need to do is find the place and they'll be rolling in sweet, sweet illicit credits. If you enjoy the show, please follow us on your favorite...
