Finalizing the fixing-up of our feed, so prepare for the second-half of our first season in all its awkward glory.

Features modesty trimmed versions of episodes 5-8 of season one.

S01 E05 – Bitten by the Temple of Tetanus
The story of the conception and build of the beautiful Mazu Temple from 2015. We talk to Nathan (aka Witchdoctor,) about the behind-the-scenes pitfalls of getting entangled in a large-scale, transcontinental playa installation.

S01 E06 – How Barbie, Gummybear, & Nathan Lost Their Virginity
Stories about going to Burning Man for the first time. Gummybear flees Yellowstone. How Nathan got hired for Black Rock City. Barbie says Burning Man is transformative.

S01 E07 -Yeah, They’re Not Gonna Like You at the Goldmine
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.

S01 E08 – It’s Like Bend in the Desert
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.

Full versions of Season 1 Episodes 5-8 are available at http://www.accuracythird.com

S01 E01 – How Smoke Daddy Got His Job
Accuracy Third is a podcast collecting an oral history of Black Rock. We are looking for your very best stories from and about That Thing In The Desert. This episode introduces your hosts, Rex & D-Day, and our illustrious producer, Drunk Beth. Starring Smoke Daddy & Andale’.

S01 E02 – Violet’s Passions
Rex & D-Day interview Violet, who has a lot to say about different facets of passion at Burning Man, with her friend and D-Day’s wife, Creampie, piping up in the background, while Drunk Beth arrives to the recording session a little too late to contain D-Day’s poor voice modulation.

S01 E03 – Jon Was a Teenage Juggler
Drunk Beth’s boyfriend Jon tells Rex & D-day about his playa wedding and how burning man is like juggling festivals. There’s a lot about everyone’s weddings, actually, before Creampie shares a story about some very exclusive swings.

S01 E04 – O-Ring Von Brownflower Wipes Out
O-Ring Von Brownflower talks to D-Day, Rex, and Drunk Beth about the life choices that you wouldn’t expect would bring you to Black Rock City. There’s also a quick discussion about non-standard Burning Man kites, and then boy, do we hear about an impressive playa injury.

It's ancient unused interview day, with two dogs, two guests on one mic, & there's nothing you or we can do about it. This was taken out of the vault in remembrance of the anniversary of our dear friend Mikl-Em's passing. Levity from Cafe & elsewheres. Mikl-Em of Bianca's Smut Shack et al. At least it's an ethos. Load. You should be my peeing friend. The worst time of your life. Something we forgot we used to do. Mini migration. The City Metaphor. Oedipal not edible. Also, the world if we ran it. Plus, Mikl was always game and he is missed every day.

The late, great Mikl-Em. R.I.P. my friend.

A note from Permit:
"When this was recorded in December, 2019 I was under the assumption that I was on the autism spectrum. In January 2020 I had a neurological assessment and in February 2020 I received a diagnosis of OCPD (Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder). ASD and OCPD have very similar symptoms, but their treatments and coping strategies are very different. I recognize the privilege that I have in that I was able to pay out of pocket for an assessment and diagnosis and not everyone is so fortunate. I want to express to my fellow neurotypical/neurodivergent folks that your self-diagnosis is valid and I support your efforts to exist in a world that is not built for us. However, I would also encourage you to get an assessment if you have the means to do so. Understanding the nature of what makes me act and think the way I do has been more helpful to me in the last 18 or so months than anything else in my life. I hope you are able to get the same foundation for yourself."
