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.’
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.’
In this issue… Young & Holt are fleeing the carnage they caused at the storage barn used by Reddington. They’re now about to take things a step further as they move to stop the scientist’s plans.
Their pieces are falling into place, so time to see where they’re at…
But before we get to the music, we’re having a contest! We’re giving away a set of Alloy dice from Norse Foundry! From now until 11:59pm on January 10th. Leave a 4 or 5 star review (hey 2020 has been hard, so no one’s perfect) on your podcast place of choice. Grab a screencap and hit your Intrepid Marshal up on Twitter with said screencap.

In this issue… Young & Holt are upping the ante against Reddington and his plans in Denver, taking a keen interest in a barn outside of town. With Joshua set up to cover, Porter is about to make a leap into the dark.
So, if he can see, we should find out where’s he’s at…
