COLD OPEN

CHUCK OCTAGON

Why do you think you’re here on this earth?

INTERVIEW
I don’t know. I feel like I was set out to make a difference. I love helping people who are telling stories. I love hearing perspectives of the people so I can have a like a good relationship with them. Like, I just like hearing conversations about people’s life and how they live it. Like, how I can compare myself to a like completely different lifestyle that’s…I’ve never known before. So it’s just really fascinating learning about how other people live their life differently than I do.

OLIVER

So there we were, Norbert and I. One-time arsonists, on the brink of greater criminal endeavors.

LEON

You’ve left something out, haven’t you?

OLIVER

I quickly became adept at picking locks, while Norbert studied the techniques for defeating electronic security systems.

LEON

You left all of your father’s belongings in the house to burn.

OLIVER

Breaking and entering became our vocation.

LEON

But his guinea pig cages and feeders and paraphernalia are still sitting in your old hideout.

JEFF VAN DREASON

Hey everyone! Happy one-month till PodCon 2! I mean, assuming that you’re listening to this on the day it comes out. If not, then it could be three weeks or two days or, you know, it could’ve already happened. Whatever. I guess the larger point is, don’t use your podcast like a calendar! In any event, I wanted to let you know that Alexander and I will be appearing at PodCon 2 in Seattle from January 18th to the 20th, and we’ll have a creator table there as well, so come on by and say hello!

LEON

The Lottery had ended in disaster. Autumn had filed for divorce. In a moment of desperation, Oliver had kidnapped a man, and very nearly killed him! The rain of incomprehensible pneumatic messages on the night of the election proved that  hadn’t gone exactly as planned. Tate was still alive, though seemingly not in his right mind.

He supposed he should be angry with Phil about that—for defying, or at least, willfully misinterpreting Oliver’s instructions. Tate was a problem. A witness. Another failure in a string of failures.

But still…he felt some relief at not adding “murder” to his criminalis vitae. Or Phil’s.

CHUCK OCTAGON – Jeff Van Dreason
WIthout telling me your name, or what you do for a living, or the fact that you’re a student. Who are you? And what do you think you’re doing here in this Earth, in this life

[Charlie on the MTA plays]

INTERVIEW
I think what I’m doing here on this life is what I feel like I can freely choose to do.

CHUCK

Which is what?

INTERVIEW

Basically anything I feel like.

INTRO – Jeff Van Dreason

Hey, everyone! Just a few programming notes about Season 3. You’re about to listen to the first half of our Season 3 mid-season finale. That’s right, this episode is so epic we split it in half and are releasing two episodes on the same day. So if you want more Greater Boston after you listen to Episode 31 part 1? Look for Episode 31 part 2 in your feed immediately after.

After this episode, we’ll be taking a few weeks off. We’ll be back in three weeks on December 18th, with the first mini-episode in a three part series that will be released every other week. These mini-series answers a question we know is on a lot of your minds.


What the F*ck’s Up with the Guinea Pigs?

After those mini-episodes are released, we’ll be back with regular-length episodes on Tuesday, January 29th, running the length of the rest of the season.

In the meantime, if you like what we’ve been doing here, support us however you can. We were announced as finalists for the Discover Pods Desert Island Podcast category, in addition to a bunch of AudioVerse awards. And of course there’s always our Patreon, or leaving us a review on Apple Podcasts or your favorite podcast app.

Thanks for listening. And enjoy Election Day – Part 1.

COLD OPEN

INTERVIEW

Why do I think I’m here? [Laughs] Well that’s a really existential question that I don’t think that I was exactly prepared for, but okay. Let’s see, uh. I am…a human person on this Earth. And I think…one of the reasons that I’m here is because I have such great friends.

[Charlie on the MTA begins.]

Like…like not just, like here to make friends, but…I’m…*still*…*here*…because I have such great friends who are always there for me.
