Rule Set Update E

[Production Note from Stephen: This episode was originally recorded on May 17, 2015. Yes. Quite a long time ago. I recommend re-listening to (or watching) Episode 151 for a hint at where this came from. My personal frustration with an inability to effect change in the world came to a head last year around April 2015. Many “necessary” things in my life had fallen away, and I saw a new path open up before me. I’ve been following this path ever since, and it has required almost all of my time and dedication. Now, in an interlude of sorts, I’m picking up some of the pieces of BF that I left hanging and getting them out into the world, starting with this rather odd Betweenisode. There’s another excellent episode coming, and a lot more information too. Thank y’all for your patience, understanding, and support.]

Kevin and Stephen reflect on episodes 160161, and 162, then refresh the rule framework of BF with a change, removal, and addition. Once again, we had to make an addition on behalf of the audience, and Kevin threw quite a curve-ball with his change on this one.

Also in the meantime, Kevin has launched a Fiasco podcast!
Check it out. It’s pretty cool.
