Episode Sixty Two – BIG RED COUCH


The paths between worlds take the form of airport terminals & concourses extending into infinity.

A shadowy bureau charged with protecting the world from extradimensional horrors launches an investigation into what is OBVIOUSLY a series of coded messages, akin to a numbers station, disguised as an RPG podcast.

Faced with a presently-unavoidable catastrophe, Humanity sends out thousands of probes to find new things, get into new forms of trouble, and run endless simulations on whether the fix is useful to the folks back home.
Basically, virtualised Star Trek RPGers.

There’s an inexplicable Big Red Couch in the middle of a highway; Why?

To the creatures living within the warp & weft of upholstery, The Big Red Couch is their entire world.

    Great episode.

    May I say it was good to hear Tonya and Kev again. It gave it sort of a “getting the band back together” feel, and was particular appropriate given this weeks card.

    • Craig says:

      Yay! Glad you liked it.

      It was good to have the band back together, even if only for an episode; I’m hoping that we can get a few more of those to happen. 🙂

    As I commented elsewhere, another great show. Lots of ideas were flowing about. Of course I have another idea pitch via David Nicoll:

    Home Improvement/Ghostbusting TV Show

    Inspiration: House: The Second Story
    And this comment: I too lament the absence of any remake of The Haunting, one which would feature a ghost-busting team clearly based on figures like Mike Holmes ,Debbie Travis, Colin McAllister, and Justin Ryan.
