Host Tom Barbalet’s records this very special 50th episode to cover for Jonathan who was sick with the zombie flu (actually, a severe respiratory virus that grossly exacerbated his asthma). Tom interviews special guest Steven MacLauchlan of WWPD: News From the Front.
The two move on to the interview where Steven bares all. He explains how he got into gaming, how WWPD: News From the Front started, and which podcasts he regularly looks forward to and listens to (yes, we’re one of them). The two discuss the Vietnam War rules from Battlefront Miniatures along with Battlegames Magazine.
Tom explains the Field of Chaos Political Compass Contest to Steven while also poking fun at Jonathan, whom he refers to as “a hard-line communist” based on the Political Compass results. Submit your results directly to Tom at Tom@nobleape.com.
Tom then gives a wrap up of the War at Sea Contest, which is covered in detail by Jonathan at the conclusion of the show in a special segment.
Jonathan makes a brief appearance in a special segment, recorded on 4/3/11, discussing the War at Sea Contest. He reveals the winner, and runner-up, who both receive some prizes. Jonathan thanks everyone who participated, Battleground Games & Hobbies and Axis & Allies ForuMINI for allowing the contest to be promoted on their message boards, and all the prize sponsors:
