If you walked into Stories's camp, he would hug you, get you a drink, a comfortable chair, and some food. The Playa Puzzle Project 2018 (you don't need a packet, but you do.) Burners Under the Influence Camp. Our first guest who brought an outline with him. We love Stories, but he loves us more. A promise from D-day.

The second episode from DJ Beth & Rex's infiltration of the belly of the DPW beast. The epilogue and afterword for Frisky Whisky's playa plane crash (from S02E07.) Gage's first season. Friend-of-the-Show Xeno is giving Mohawks. Pound Town figures out the timing. Rob is never going back. The Peppermill is a thing. Ice skating on playa. The Gerlach barbecue. Lucky's on Avenue B in NYC. Weird in the wrong way. Plus, everyone shouts "no" at Beth, and variable intoxication throughout. Also, Stories. Meet Stories. And come to Accuracy Third Live.

Friend-of-the-Show Xeno exerts his friendship on the show something fierce. Learn his sordid history while he, Rex, & DJ Beth get a little unconscionable at Accuracy Third's second visit to The Vulcan.

Papawitch and Pascal are two Burning Man volunteers. They are awesome people who just happen to be in the minority at Black Rock City. Pascal studies Russian. Papawitch has eight names. Pascal didn't have a bicycle. If Morgan Freeman had dreadlocks. Papa Witch & Pascal A custom-ass experience for your pampered fat ass. Pascal's last burn for 10 years. Also, R-Evolution (not Bliss) should have stood on the National Mall, and here's a thing about BRC's demographics from Quartz:

Meet The Ceiling Cat Prophet, Gulia, founder of the fastest growing religion on playa. One of the best acts of prayer possible. Some people that go to Burning Man belong in the Basement Cat's Litter Box. The Order of Goats and Perpetual Shenaniganization of the Last Days. WTF is up with the Flying Spaghetti Monster? The pleasures of eating with Russian Burners, as well as the magic of Dust City Diner, Pink Mammoth Camp, Human Carcass Wash, Black Rock City Diner, and Skinny Kitty Camp. North West Mist has a mist system that really works, and the good word, which is, 'Meow." Also, fast-talkin' 20s guys, Dickie in the box, and the time Rex won a thing.

Accuracy Third's first on-playa interview from the 2017 burn. Kink and sex positivity abound as we talk to Kit, ex-Greeter and current resident of a dungeon-lite camp. A moratorium on spanking. Human connection through hugging humans. Vacuuming the playa. Steampunk posers. Kitty dingo, Pizza Burrito, and the day after Rough Burn. Anal, ovbs. What makes a burner? What makes Greeters unhappy? Do you remember Jiffy Lube or Leviticus? D-day is hoarse, Rex is an unreliable narrator, and DJ Beth is nonplussed with podcasting conventions. Also, Accuracy Third's tribute to Powers Boothe.

You go from Pink Lightning camp to 7:00, then out to the Esplanade, and down to 10:00. At 10:00, turn left and go all the way out to the trash fence. You go along the trash fence passing 12:00, until you hit 2:00 on the trash fence. Hard right and run along 2:00 to Esplanade, take Esplanade to Center Camp, run up 6:00 or 6:30 back to Pink Lightning camp. That loop is seven miles. And if you're doing the Burning Man Ultra Marathon, you can expect to loop that loop four times and then some. Also, the inherent awfulness of the Dewey Decimal System.
