A special episode (dropped into the Shared Desk feed via the Geek Wolfpack Podcast feed) where Papa Wolf (Nick Kelly) and his special guest (Tee, first time in studio!) recap the events of MAGFest 2017. Hear these two discuss the unique vibe of this festival, cosplay, retro gaming, our panels, and all sorts of insanity from this incredible Washington, DC music and gaming festival over fine, malted beverages…

Well, it had to happen. Crazy Uncle Charlie came with us to Balticon.
He promised us he would take his medication. What he failed to tell us was he would take his med only by grounding them into a powder, inhaling them deeply, and then wash them back with shots of Cookie Dough Vodka. We thought he was too far gone to operate the door handle, but nevertheless Crazy Uncle Charlie wandered down to the open patio of the Residence Inn, and it was all caught on video…
Pip and I are still working hard in bringing you more fiction, so episodes of The Shared Desk are on hold. However, we are expecting audio from Balticon soon. When that is made available, we will be back on track with our podcasts.
In the meantime, enjoy this candid moment with Crazy Uncle Charlie, captured forever in video amber…
