Episode 62: Insert Clever Title Here

Gordon just wanted to test a Zoom remote session to see what it was like -- because not getting together in person is new for us -- when Mikhail suddenly says "Just hit the record button...go!" The discussion is what you'd expect: A little points update reactions here, a little AMG major game change reactions there. Steelers talk at about the 1:27:00 mark if you're a masochist.

Episode 61: Don't call it a comeback

You might not know this, but it's been just over a year since we last recorded. Lies you say? It's true...all of it (insert Han Solo meme here). Gordon finally felt safe enough to come out of his Covid cave, Mikhail's grown a beard to look more like Gordon, Camden got tired of not podcasting so he started his own show, and Franch welcomed baby Magnolia to his family! Proud Papa indeed!! The gang recaps the past year's worth of X-Wing happenings and whines about the lack of a promised points update.

Episode 60: Franch has the Coronavirus

Fine, he probably doesn't, but we thought we saw him licking his iPad and iPads are made in China, so our logic is infallible. Topics mostly revolved around recent Store Championships and the current Hyperspace meta, and some discussion about new players getting involved in their first competitive games. And some brief Steelers talk. 00:11:15 - WAR STORIES | 01:07:20 - FLIGHT PREP | 01:31:00 - STOLEN PLANS | 01:35:10 - STEELERS TALK

Episode 59: POINTS POINTS POINTS

Let's face it -- when the points change in X-Wing every six months, it's just the best. Not much got nerfed this time around, but a LOT of generic ships were lowered in cost. We're excited, and you should be too!

Episode 56: Worlds 2019

The gang spends their Halloween recording a show, which is what happens when you don't have children. Highlights include Mikhail sharing stories from his recent World's experience, Franch leading them through a "buy or sell" segment about various ships and upgrades, and Gordon pondering how he was labeled a virus while away in Scotland. In other words, two of the hosts contribute something useful about X-Wing.

Episode 55: Practice makes perfect...or not

Franch and Mikhail attempt to host the show on their own without their fearless leader, Gordon. But don’t worry, they are joined by Mark Moriarity from Hangar 19 to discuss the hyperspace trial that happened this past weekend in Louisville where Franch proved no practice is the best practice. The guys also talk about the hyperspace meta and then some general world championship info to get listeners prepped and ready for what they should expect. No timestamps this episode, so stick around (or don’t) towards the end for some football talk.

Episode 54: Use the Force, [insert your name here]

Gordon, Mikhail, and guest Ryan Fleming discuss the typical things you'd expect on a show that's about X-Wing, but we all know why Ryan is there, right? You'll know when it's time to stop listening if you don't care about the inevitable Pittsburgh Steelers sportsball talk. Sorry, no timestamps either. Failing to write down the timestamps is what happens when Franch isn't there, so blame him, not Gordon. In fact, that's sage advice for just about everything: blame Franch.

Episode 53: The GenCon Preview Episode

GOOOOOOD MORNING X-WING!!!! Hey, this is....wait, wrong show. Sorry. The whole gang is finally back together again as Mikhail resumes his co-hosting responsibilities once more after being extradited to Kentucky from Florida. Obviously, that's not true, but this is what happens when they let Gordon write the preview copy. So listen in on some War Stories (what they played recently), some Flight Prep (GenCon predictions), and everyone's favorite segment: Steelers Talk (Steelers Talk!!!). 09:30 - WAR STORIES | 31:15 - FLIGHT PREP | 1:39:30 - STEELERS TALK
