Gunn for Hire – Episode 16 “Two Sides”


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.

Gunn for Hire – Episode 15 “Pulling An Irving”

Looks like our crew has got themselves caught up in something. Whether it’s related to their case, or part of something bigger, or hell, maybe a bit of both, remains to be seen. One thing we do know for sure, is that Grace Gunn is down for the count, and that’s got her three friends shaking more than a soldier on leave in a Tomato Market. And if you know anything about these four, it’s probably about to get worse.

Oh yeah, and one more thing. See we got a contest going on. We’ve got a sleek pair of rats and mice – you know, the bones you roll in those back alleys – that’s dice for the rest of you. It’s a nice set from our chums at Norse Foundry. I’m no snitch, but here’s the deal. Simply leave a review for either this podcast or ‘The Adventures of Young & Holt.’ 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 do them, 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.’

Gunn for Hire – Episode 13 – “Pieces”

There’s few things worse than when you’re putting a puzzle together and can’t find all the pieces. It’s like the devil decided to look at all the hard work you put in on that 1000 piece job and then goes and takes pieces 750 and 825 and stuff them deep in the couch cushions, never to be seen again. But for Grace Gunn and crew, they’re still trying to piece together the edges of this little puzzle.

Gunn for Hire – Episode 12 – “A Thousand Words”

There’s a lot of strange things in this world. For some folks, they like to say it’s magic, because they don’t understand it. Funny thing is, some of the time – they’re more right than they’d probably want to be. And for Irving Holt and Miles Pike, they’re about to find out that some magic may be darker than a back alley shadow at Midnight.

Oh, and one word of warning, some of the descriptions in this episode, get a little… vivid.

Gunn for Hire – Episode 11 – “Seeing is…”

I’m sure you’ve heard about this guy. Went by the name Thomas. Tommy was one of those mooks that you could tell a fishing story to, but if the trout wasn’t in your hands, he wasn’t gonna believe a word you said. And right now, Irving Holt running up against his own Tommy – but he’s just hoping it’s not the one inside his head.

Gunn for Hire – Episode 10 – “Shades of Gray”

Nothing’s ever simple. And in Chicago in 1933, where the shadows grow nearly as long as the bread lines, everything is seven shades of complicated. And for Grace Gunn and Miles Pike, the paths they’re on are about to hit more twists and turns than the Monaco Grand Prix. But in a world where you swore you saw something you’ve never seen before and a black suited stranger insists you didn’t. What else would you expect?

Gunn for Hire – Episode 9 – “Tightrope”

You know that feeling when you go to the circus and watch the tightrope walker? That feeling in the pit of your stomach that one slip and the dangerous balancing act is over. Down she goes. Show over. You want her to make it across but each step’s an agony like learning the dame or Jake you love is stepping out to be in another’s arms. And in either case, you can’t look away.

And for Miles Pike, he walks his own tightrope, trying to balance his secret with his mission and with learning that something deeper is going on. But for Miles, if he missteps, there’s no net at the bottom of his fall.

Gunn for Hire – Episode 8

Tonight we’re gonna talk about some F-words. No, not the kind that would cause your mother to replace your corn flakes with soap flakes. Tonight, Irving Holt deals with his film, Grace Gunn her family, and for Bam Bam – it’s his fight. That doesn’t make things any less foul. But when your foes front, you gotta face those fears. All right, I’m finally finished.

Gunn for Hire – Episode 7

Every once in a while you see something you don’t want to see. Hear something you don’t want to hear. Something you can’t get out of that picture palace in your mind. There’s a showing every 10 minutes, and ushers are making sure you stay in your seat. And for Miles Pike and Irving Holt, two veterans of Weird War One, they’re about to have front row seats once again.

Oh, and just in case… Some things get a little descriptive in this episode.
