DPW is in the studio today in the form of Xeno, the guy you want to talk to if you need a crew to build you official, DPW-certified shade structures. That’s if you can locate him, though, because there are some times when he finds himself more in need of rescue than anything else. But sometimes, it’s merely a misunderstanding of bloodstained proportions. We also hear from Relay, one of our skilled radio dispatchers, who shares pointed commentary during Xeno’s stories. We’ll highlight her own exploits and experiences in a future episode.

Today, we’re sharing stories about interactions with Law Enforcement Officers in Black Rock City. Foxtrot tells us how she became part of a staff vehicle. Creampie gets pulled over. Rex & D-Day get away with it, separately. Relay has been picked up by law enforcement. A lot. Xeno cannot be compelled. Beth assures us we’re good. We’re good.
