Episode 157: Bing Bang Bong!

Last episode were very excited to tear into Bounding Fire Production's latest masterpiece, Poland in Flames. Chock full of gorgeous maps and counters, scads of exciting and enticing scenarios, vehicle and historical notes, and more, this massive ASL module was too big to fit into one show. So we return to it here and discuss one of the fine articles contained in the accompanying Poland in Flames magazine, Pyromania. It's guaranteed (figuratively) to warm your cockles (literally).

We would like to apologize here in writing to all Martians, Big Foots, Australopithecines and all fine persons of Korean heritage.

We proud to have Ritterkrieg as the sponsor for this episode. You can purchase many fine Advanced Squad Leader products, including Poland in Flames.

Episode 156: Bongos in Flames

Greetings all you hep (not HIP) cat fellow ASLer's! It's time to park the lead sled, stop quail hunting and instead focus your audio on our far out offering. We've got a really cool show today that's guaranteed to give you bright disease. We start our usual off-the-cob chit chat accompanied by Jeff on his cool bongos. It's slated for crashville until Daddy-o Dave whips out his copy of Poland in Flames from Bounding Fire Productions. This thing is bigger than Kerouac so listen up if you want to know your groceries. We don't blab any drab gab here. We patter what matters. No squares allowed. You dig?

Then join the PAASL Club as they recount their scenarios played with some after action reports, including a thorough discussion of ASL35 Blazin' Chariots and Food Fight from The Journal.

Oh yeah, and be sure to head over to RitterKrieg and spend a yard on ASL goods. No hanging paper please.

And hey, when you're done listening to this episode of The 2 Half-Squads, check out our new podcast, Spine and Sprocket a book and movie review program. There will be a lot of military history and war films, but also some sci-fi and fantasy as the mood hits us.
