Loyal Policies: this week, we’re excited to bring you something very different from our usual fare: a very special crossover episode produced by Improvised Star Trek.

Recorded live at the 2015 CONvergence Convention, we are pleased to finally share with you, in its entirety, the Archibald FunnyPants Radio Hour. We’ve toured this show in a variety of forms (and with a variety of casts) for roughly three years- we hope you enjoy it!

Loyal Policies: as we work diligently on Season Seven of Our Fair City, we thought we’d take a moment to answer questions about our show from Policies Like You. We got way more questions than we could handle in a single podcast, so we’ll be answering your queries over the next few weeks—if you submitted a question and didn’t hear it answered here, sit tight–we will most likely answer it in the next session.
Special thanks to Smilodonmeow, Soap-lady, Jdimpson, Ashleythedragon, Belanekra, Snail_army, G2 the Irish Pianist, Krund the Barbarian, and everyone else who sent a question in!
Loyal Policies: listen and remember, as we recount the true events that nearly destroyed the sanctity and security of our Tower. Savor these words, as we bring the sixth seasonal retelling of the Historical Records of the HartLife corporation to a close.
Season Seven of Our Fair City will begin in the Spring of 2016. Stay tuned until then for blooper reels, behind the scenes recordings, and more.
