Half-Glass Gaming [Episode 20] : We’ve Been Drinking Cupcakes


In an unusual turn of events, the Reverend ends up being the most sober member of the gang after Mandi serves up cupcakes that are practically drenched in alcohol. This lack of inhibition allows for topics like culinary school remorse, butt blisters, and passionate hatred for “The cake is a lie” non-jokes.

After the break, we celebrate the All-American turkey feast that is Thanksgiving by talking food, libations, and illicit substances. We explore food as the go-to video game power-up, the mayonnaise-based origin story of the Cooking Mama series, Josh’s short-lived obsession with Nom Nom Galaxy, the Pork Bun Guy from Sleeping Dogs, and sooooo much Persona 4. We also talk realistic cooking vs. crafting-style cooking, whatever the hell pieces of water are, and the frustratingly wonderful Don’t Starve.

And through it all, the Reverend’s inability to discern between cookie types is a hatchet that just won’t stay buried.

Also, be sure to stay tuned after the episode for our drunkest outtake yet.
