We join Josh and one-cake-filled Ryan for talk about our favourite games, Dwarf Fortress, Minecraft, and others. Josh talks about watching and performing standup comedy. Does a parade count as a simulation for our purposes? Sure, why not! Then we take a weird tangent about the nature of art and spirituality, on account of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. We speculate on the origin of birthday candles. And for our main topic, we discuss parades, and how a parade or festival can shed light on a fantasy setting. And using parades and festivals and other traditions in stories.
