Episode 013: What Is All Of Your Malfunctions?

It’s Friday, January 12th, 2080. The day has finally arrived, and a Drakon International truck carrying some precious cargo was supposed to move across the city. The team had mapped out potential routes and set up a plan for stopping the truck with minimal collateral damage, but their carefully laid plans for hijacking the truck went completely off the rails when they realized it was an ancient throwback without any sort of matrix presence for Jean-Baptiste to hack. A few sniper rifle rounds later, and Catherine stopped both the truck and the driver’s heart while giving Peggy Pigtails a serious need for lifelong therapy. A quick search of the truck’s trailer found the briefcase they were looking for. They also found some refrigerated cases marked with biohazard signs, which is totally not ominous. We join most of the team as they flee the scene of the crime, with Deuce and Cat on a motorcycle, while Thumper holds on for dear life as Jean-Baptiste redlines the Americar. Micah, hands clean as always, sticks around to see what happens in the aftermath of the carnage.

Episode 012: She’s Gonna Kill You Some Day, I’m Not Going To Stop It

Finally, the team has started to actually act on their plan. After arguing a bit about their so-called living arrangements, they did some recon on Drakon International’s trucking. Through no fault of Jean-Baptiste, they didn’t get into any broad-daylight street races and got some valuable intel about response times and the like. It’s Wednesday, January 10th, 2080, two days away from when they need to hijack a truck.

Episode 011: It Is Not Always About Food With Me

The team took a bit of a break and started planning how they might be able to take the truck down with the least amount of damage, though what they wanted to keep safe varied greatly. It’s Tuesday, January 9th, and we join them in their ill-gotten apartments as they start to do some legwork for their upcoming heist.

Episode 010: What An Awfully Specific Denial

After a successful search for new transportation, and despite Jean-Baptiste’s drug-fueled trouble with reality, the team has gotten back together in some bloody cheap apartments. With the bottom tier of Maslow’s Hierarchy taken care of for now, surely they’ll start working on finding a bit of safety and security in their lives.

Episode 009: Have You Never Done Novacoke Before?

While waiting for the appointed time to hijack a truck for Slide, the team split up. Catherine and Micah went apartment shopping and found a cozy one bed, one bath place and through some … aggressive negotiations convinced the current owner he’d be happier sleeping in the shower while they used the remainder of the apartment. The rest of the team went uhh… let’s say car shopping and procured a single-owner late-model low-mileage Ford Americar with an attached mobility scooter. We now rejoin Thumper, Deuce, and suddenly and inexplicably coked-up Jean-Baptiste in their freshly stolen car as they head to the apartment.

Episode 008: Of Course He’s Human, Micah Talked To Him

After meeting their fixer to get a job and having a cold and uncomfortable night’s sleep, the team headed to a local diner to discuss their situation. Over one of the last nice meals they can afford without getting some sort of income, the team realized they’ll need to procure the bare necessities now that they’re no longer corporate employees: four walls, a roof, and a car. We now join Micah and Catherine as they head back to the pleasant gentleman that Micah cozied up to the previous night.

Episode 007: You Just Want To Cuddle

It’s the morning of January 8th, 2080. Down on their luck, broke, homeless, and without proper identification, the team made it to a fixer named Slide to ask the self-styled king for his help with procuring new SINs. He agreed to build decent identities for the two less traditional metahumans in the group in exchange for retrieving a case from a truck scheduled to make its deliveries on Friday. They’ve got a bit of time to kill before the truck job to try to figure out their next moves, and have headed back to the broken down condemned building Deuce calls home.

The Geek Swarm just published an interview they did with us a few weeks ago. I’m not sure Bernie was ready for our particular style of bumper car interview, but I think it went pretty well. We delve into how our podcast came to be, along with some character backstory.
