Fierce. Green. Dragon.Fierce. Green. Dragon.It's the month of love. Nope, we're not sending you valentines and a heart-shaped box of assorted fine chocolates, but you do get a podcast sealed with a kiss! We have a humongous show clocking in at nearly three hours, with special guests Jay Barnson of Rampant Coyote, John Pio of MAMECADE, and Alex Layne of Not Your Mama's Gamer. We're also joined by almost all of the regular AA team, including Bill Loguidice, Christina Loguidice, Mark Vergeer, Rob Daviau, Chris Kennedy, and yours truly, Matt Barton.

Matt's Show Notes

  • Dan Carlin. I highly recommend both of Dan's podcasts, Common Sense and Hardcore History.
  • Gerald Celente. It's fun (and perhaps scary) to read this close combat expert's predictions of the near future.

Thanks, but it's definitely a team effort, though Matt pulls double duty by editing the segments together and doing the intro and most of the interlude drops.

YES

We all contribute, but all hail Matt as he is the one that receives all the segments, does his own, edits it and mixes it all together into something that can be presented as a podcast! Thank you Matt! I just downloaded it, think this will be a good one.

Thanks, guys. I was actually going to suggest that Chris host the next episode, if it's okay with him. We should probably share the duties of that, plus I don't want to hog the fun of joking about everyone else's segments.

That was of course the original idea, but you seemed to enjoy doing it, so...

This episode is the best thing to happen to mankind since the invention of the burrito!
All of the segments this month sound freaking fantastic.

Christina's back! I hear about PvsZ *everywhere*, so I can't wait to hear her segment.

It's fun, just wouldn't mind a break from it. Besides, you guys deserve a shot at the helm.

We should all chip in and send Matt to Miami for some rest and relaxation. Chris has an excellent voice and is insightful.
