Season 1 Bonus Episode - "My House Is Not A Brothel" - Oli

Oli. NSFW. A story told once previously during a fine session after a game - I'd say GMIS but we really wouldn't know. This story is full on.  It's gory, it's matter of fact, it's serious, it's problematic and it's Dutch medical practices at their very best. Sit back, switch off your bluetooth speaker so no-one can hear and be transported to another world for 20 minutes.
