This episode brings the great Chumbalya (Daddy), Cowboy Kenny (Papa), and Nam-my the Commish together for a different sort of show. There is a little bit of L5R talk toward the beginning but we quickly move to X-wing talk. But this show was originally going to be a “normal” show, but after some personal obligations caused us to start recording later than we would like to, Kenny just pressed the record button and let the conversation take the wheel. Some really good content and discussion. I hope you enjoy!
