Huzzah! Epic adventures from the realm of Milwaukee in this 2-hour season finale! Krulos the Magickal talks to writer and editor Jan Christensen about a hidden treasure (one of the first ten D&D games made) she sold to finance a road trip and Peter Ferry and Jason Clayton, creators of Factions: Battlegrounds, a "fantasy combat boardgame representing diverse cultures and mythologies."
Then we're live from Faklandia Brewing, where we talk with brewmasters and business partners Nathaniel and Ben about their epic fantasy vision and Tea and Heidi talk about Rogues, the Satanic Panic, planted memories, and a totally redonk exorcist.

Miss Information reveals trivia answers, an Irish jig inspired track from Sunspot, and we close with Ratbatspider's track about the Haunchyville urban legend, "Keep This Short."

Tea recalls and shares audio clips from the time he and his friend Paul got a tour of the Luxury Survival Condos, an underground condo unit built in an old Atlas missile silo in Kansas, while working on his book Apocalypse Any Day Now.
Then Tea and Heidi discuss news like the Irish fae folk, glow-in-the-dark sharks, a catnip dispensary, a noise music confrontation, a super powers challenge, and a bathroom mirror that's a portal to a creepy apartment. Plus your last chance to play trivia before our drawing next week and we close out with Alaska's The Eternal Cowboys playing "Used Dreams."

Zorth has been a reoccurring topic on Tea's Weird Week. Dr. Matthew Johnson aka Dr. J claims that he communicates telepathically with Zorth, head of the Xanue Bigfoot council.
After talking about Zorth so much, we decided to give him a classic comedy roast with Milwaukee comedians Addie Blanchard, Dana Ehrmann, Matthew Filipowicz, Greg Bach, and Zorth's Bigfoot rival Zaarg.
