Episode 60: When Some Flab Hits Your Face Like a Big Rock From Space, That's Imoli

 

Welcome, Guardians! This is officially our first Destiny Lore episode since, um, a long time ago! Today we kick off our examination of Emperor Calus and the history of the Cabal. Part 1 explores Calus's ascent to Emperor, his People's Revolution against the Praetorate, and his eventual downfall in the Midnight Coup. Along the way you can expect plenty of shenanigans and poorly pronounced Latin.

Episode 59: Holy Crap It's Real

Welcome, Guardians! It has been forever, but we are finally ready. Ghost Stories is back and ready to dive into the lore of Destiny once again. Its been a long, strange year, but we are excited to be back in the game and on the air. This is a lore free episode, but we wanted to talk through our return, the reasons why, and set expectations in its own standalone episode so it wouldn't bog down next week's release, which will be a full-on deep dive into Emperor Calus and the Cabal. See you then, O Listeners Ours.

Episode 58: YOU DIED

ADULT LANGUAGE HIDE YOUR KIDS WARNING

This is Episode 58 and on this show we’re saying it's Episode 59. What does it mean?! This wasn't the Vault episode I was expecting! In any case, we're finally back behind the mics to take a stab at making a show without the kind of rigid structure you're probably accustomed to from us. We'll talk about why during the show, along with a whole load of other things including where we've been, what else we've been doing, and desperately racking our old man brains trying to figure out what happened between the last episode and this one. We know we forgot stuff. This is essentially DGS VARIETY HOUR PART 2, so set your expectations accordingly. Also, Xray swears a lot.

It's been a while.

Episode 57: The Good, the Bad and the Consul

November 3, 2017

Episode 57: Saltcast Redux This is Episode 57 and on this show we’re… having a “do over”. We recorded an episode last week (a fortnight ago), a casual three and half hour conversation about the state of Destiny 2. While extremely cathartic, we decided that horse has been pretty much beat to death, and then rezzed by it’s Ghost, and then beat to death again. We’re all well aware of the issues D2 is having and while we’re going to mention them on this show too, the entire show won’t be about them.

Big thanks to SherbetPop for taking the lead and pulling our noses out of the proverbial books to get back behind the mics. Join us as we talk about our early experiences and observations playing Destiny 2. There is a ton of lore and discussions to be had...so don't worry, we will get there. "The lore is lovely, dark and deep, but we have promises to keep, and miles to go before we speak."

Episode 55B: Mo Beta Blues Clues - Part 2...(you're half way there) Welcome back, Guardians! Two shows in two weeks? What is this, 2015? This is the second part of our look at the Destiny 2 Beta and, per usual, what we thought would be a quick show turned into a 3.5 hour epic. We’re taking a look at armor and weapons, talking about some of the call back, references, and story hints contained within. Join us as dropslash complains about flavor text… A LOT, SherbetPop recites classic literature, and Xray tries to keep this fireteam of Hunters on the rails. Maybe we should hire a Titan… NAH! Also, spiders. Enjoy!

Episode 54: Swing Beta Beta - Part 1 Welcome back, Guardians! It’s only been forty five thousand years since the last show, so we decided to make another one! This episode is Part 1 of our look at the Destiny 2 Beta and we’re talking about mostly about lore and story hooks we noticed during our time playing it. We also chat about the Farm and all the potential secrets hidden there. The next episode will be dedicated to the armor and weapons of the beta, which hold some pretty interesting details about what may be in our future. Until then, enjoy drop mentioning how much the flavor text bothers him ad nauseum, Sherbs experience with amazing Australian high speed internet, and Xray just being better than everyone else… like always.

Can a lore show have its own lore? Find out as XRAY and Gabble recount their experiences at GuardianCon 2017. Along the way we'll meet listeners, streamers, friends, and, uh, not friends. We hope these stories are just as fun to listen to as they were to experience. Except one. One of them was really awful to experience. If you are anticipating our return to the depths of the Vault of Glass as much as we are, fear not, dear listeners. We will resume that dive in one week's time!

Episode 52: The DGS Variety Hour 3 Hours Welcome back, Guardians! Due to swamp gas from a weather balloon trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected off the light from Venus, we were short exactly one GabbleRatchet and one Cosmololgy this week. So this episode will be a light-lore show with Xray, drop, and Sherb doing some podcast housecleaning. We’re talking about general Destiny news, Guardiancon, what’s going on around the podcast, answering user questions, and a ton of other random stuff. We’ll be back on track and back into the Vault of Glass on the next episode!
