For 2021 we kept things a little more low key than usual for our annual shit show. I think 4 people is tied with our smallest previous shit show but I’m too lazy to go back into the expansive GPYS archives to verify that claim. Why? Well, if you haven’t noticed the entire province (nay country, nay planet) is a bit of shit show right now so in a wa…

So the last time we recorded an episode in the back of Grumpy’s bar was probably March 2nd, 2020. It was episode 202 with BOIDS. That was over 570 days ago. That’s madness.
