Episode 9: Catchphrases

The Knights are joined by renowned musician Nathan Zoob and when they are approached by a wealthy young man and asked to retrieve a golden arrow they say yes without hesitation, mostly because there really wouldn't be a show if they turned him down. 

On the way they learn a lot about paint, sandwiches, and paying attention to the DM when he clearly describes a vehicle. All this and a surprising amount of high school literature.

Episode 8: Let the Midnight Special

For this episode we dip into the KotA archives to present an show we recorded with Spencer Crittenden from the Harmontown Podcast in September 2014. This was a midnight show that we recorded immediately after Episode 4: The Princess Dairies.

We didn't immediately publish because it needed a lot of cleaning up as we did a number of bits that worked really well on stage but that won't make sense on audio. I do my best to try and explain what's going on. So we did a bit of scrubbing and since we have nothing else to release this month, well here you go.  

Also, I apparently built a robot. I expect him to be divisive.
