Episode 270: Marvelous Mike Puccio

You may recognize the name of Michael J. Puccio from an article on Paratroopers or one called "A Cavalry Primer for Neighsayers" published in ASL Annual 97. Or you may recognize it from one of the dozen or so scenarios he has designed for Critical Hit, Dispatches From the Bunker, Yankee ASL, or ASL Scenario 203: Hard Rok from Forgotten War; Korea. Even if you have not heard of Mike, perhaps because you are a Starter Kit player, or you are a random hit on this site, you still will very well enjoy having a listen. Check out the "Pooch" right here and right now.
