Everybody loves having a good time, but one person’s good time can be another’s nightmare. Take our trio of Grace Gunn, Tommy “Bam Bam” Prue and Irving Holt. Right now, they’re not having a real whoopie time. But to the strange things from the shadows that they’re fighting? I’m betting they think this is a real stompin’ rub. But I’m gonna guess those table might turn before the night is out.
Everybody knows the phrase, ‘the things that go bump in the night.’ And for our trio, there’s going to be more than a few of these things seeking them out ton this cold December night. And because trouble finds them like flies to a fresh cow pie, there’s likely going to be a lot of bumpin’ going on.
In this issue… Young & Holt have found Samuel Reddington and his associates and are about to take action against the New Scientist before he can accomplish… whatever it is he’s trying to do. Porter is hot for revenge, but will it cloud his judgment? I have a feeling we are about to find out.
Speakeasys in 1933 Chicago are a dying breed. In a few weeks, they won’t have to hide their dirty secrets and bathtub gin anymore. Well, the gin at least. As far as the secrets go, they’ll still be hidden and they’ll still be as dirty as the trash in a back alley after a two week garbage strike in August. But those are the secrets that Grace Gunn and Tommy Bam Bam Prue are trying to find out.
In this issue… Young & Holt along with Professor Zig Waller, a Native and a small posse of guns continue to make their way into the Rockies in search of the hard to find All Seasons Valley. Once there, they plan the final showdown with Reddington. But getting there might be a right bit tougher than expected.
Before the trail gets cold, we’d best see where they’re at…
Life can be a lot like a carnival ride – kind of entertaining, but most of the time you just go in circles. Of course, a lot depends on which ride you choose. A ferris wheel is nice, an even balance of highs and lows, with some nice views in between. And if you’re lucky you get someone special to sit in the car with you for the ride. Then of course, some of us choose the roller coaster. It moves fast, then slow. Makes you laugh and scream at the same time – balanced between moments of sheer joy and abject terror.
In this issue… Young & Holt gather together everything and everyone they need to before heading out to stop Reddington. But before they do that, they need to find All Seasons Valley. A task, not easily done. But one that needs to be done quickly.
We’re burning daylight, so we’d best get on with where they’re at…
If there’s one thing you need to know about the alleyways in Chicago, is that there’s a lot of twists and turns. If there’s two things you need to know about the alleyways in Chicago, is that you don’t walk through them unless you’re looking for trouble. And the third thing – it’s the secrets they hold. The saying goes, ‘Seeing is Believing.’ For folks scraping by in Chicago in 1933 if they can’t hold it in their hands, it’s phonus balonus and a waste of their time. But for Grace Gunn, our Shamus and her three compadres they might start seeing things with their peepers they don’t want to believe. And what they are getting themselves into could be just like those alleyways, with twists and turns and even a dead end or three.
In this issue… Young & Holt make arrangements for a guide to take them to all Seasons Valley to stop Samuel Reddington. But they also need to visit a man of letters – Professor Zig Waller – who might be able to offer a bit more insight as to what they’re about to face.
The boys are on the move, so we’d best be too, so let’s see where they’re at…
One more thing. See we got a contest going on. If there’s one thing every good cowboy needs, aside from their trusty smokewagon, it’s a pair of dice. We’re giving away a beautiful set from our compadres at Norse Foundry. Simply leave a review for either this podcast or ‘Gunn for Hire.’ We’d like 5 stars but times are tough, so as many stars as you can spare. If for some reason your podcatcher doesn’t allow reviews, then check out this tweet and retweet to all your adoring followers. And remember, if you do leave a review, you gotta search for ‘Fear the Boot Actual Play.’
