"The Frivolous Ado of Madame Baudelaire's Frock" may be the biggest hit since "Hamilton"... or the biggest flop since "Cats vs. Hamilton: Enter the Dark." The cast is fighting, the director and stage manager are sleeping together, there are glove problems, and maybe.... a PHANTOM? Everything should be fine as long as the prop frocks are in the right box, and everyone gets that the Hitler-loving love interest is the BAD GUY. I'm sure it'll be fine... find out for yourself of this episode of Gosh Darn Fiasco, starring Lucia Fasano, Kyle McCormick, Kevin M. Arnold, Angela Webber & Richard Malena!
In this special episode, we interview the creators of Fiasco, Jason Morningstar and Steve Segedy! The experts give tips on what makes the best roleplaying sessions, tell their their inspiration for Fiasco, preview their new game Ghost Court, and leak the info on the one Fiasco playset that Steve wants to make someday. We freak out a little bit. Sponsored by The Movie Quiz in Portland!
This is the SECOND HALF of "Return to the Ice!" We are at South Pole Station. We've got a nihilistic German documentary filmmaker, a Scottish legacy explorer obsessed with aliens, a grad student named Susan Dorothy Science (you can call her SueDo), and a BAND! Of course there's a band on the South Pole. Hope nothing weird happens! (Weird stuff happens).

McMurdo Station, Antarctica. It seems like a nice place to hang out, open a coffee shop, go to college—but it turns out, it's sort of terrible. The University is hoarding information, a newcomer carries a terrible secret, and suddenly, a barista and a professor discover a dead body in a purple jumpsuit! What does it mean, and what do the Hairy-Chested Yeti Crabs have to do with it? If you become a science deputy, we might just be able to tell you what's happening.
The City of OurTown has six news stations, and all of them are vying for the Peabody Award for News Excellence. Animal News One has the best zoo news thanks to the OTTER BROS, News Channel 6 has some exciting stories (some of them seem made up, though), and Action News 11 has some amazing secrets about other stations and their financial mismanagement—and a very dedicated intern named Crate, or Clamp, or something. Of course, there is a Malaria outbreak in OurTown, but that doesn't really seem newsworthy when there's so much ZOO NEWS! Enjoy love, death, and art films in this episode of GOSH DARN FIASCO! God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen!!
Get a peek behind the scenes in this episode, where we set up the story for our "Otter Bros" episode! Listen to the full episode, also out today, for the whole story!
The Muppets have made some powerful enemies. Well, maybe not "powerful," per se. But security guard Buck Friendly, wanna-be criminal Frankie Banklin, disillusioned marketing assistant Courtney Date and experienced robber Snuffleupagus Philms have a plan. Well, not a "plan," per se. But someone needs to find out what the Henson Company is hiding in that underground lab, and this might just be the crew to do it!
At Our Lady Of Perpetual Sorrows, the balance has been disrupted. A tell-all book has just been anonymously released telling the secrets the order, and a new Mother Superior has come in to get to the bottom of the scandal. But she's been seen talking to a large rodent and a man in a top hat—and something strange is happening in the basement with tin foil. And have you noticed how big the tulips are this year? In this episode, players Keith Baker, Molly Lewis, Jenn Ellis and Jeremiah Shepersky join your host Angela Webber in playing "Bad Habits," a playset set in a convent in Punxsutawney, PA.
Seattle is a city with interesting problems. There's the annual bread bake-off, of course. There are rumors of Bigfoot sightings in the woods. There are vigilante superheroes who keep the status quo. Into this mix comes Charlie Barley, the new CEO of Magic: The Gathering—and he wants to disrupt everything. In this episode, players Kyle McCormick, Richard Malena, Cary Young and Lucia Fasano join your host Angela Webber in playing "Welcome To Jet City" in a Seattle-themed game that gets real, real weird.
