The Tall Bike Joust The Tall Bike Joust

The Tall Bike Joust

Slightly misguided (but up for anything) people from various walks of life meet in a craft brewery's parking lot to joust on bicycles of double the normal height, raise money for a nonprofit bicycle shop that focuses on urban transportation equity, and to joyously celebrate life in all of its absurdity.

Uniquely blending documentary and scripted elements, this very real tournament is presented by hosts from a SportsCenter-esque studio as though it is a live event of international significance—like the Super Bowl or World Cup—and the jousters hyped as the superheroes they so clearly are.

THE TALL BIKE JOUST originally served as a pilot for SMART PEOPLE BEING STUPID—an unscripted TV/ web series traveling the nation to find intelligent and successful people who engage in random, silly, and seemingly pointless events the general public does not even know exists. But, given the success of this pilot and of the underground sport of tall bicycle jousting, this project also now serves as a pilot for THE TALL BIKE JOUST WORLD CUP—an arced series following five jousters from the pilot as they earn points in tall bicycle jousting tournaments across the southeast and strive to be crowned the year-end champion.

Doomed To Repeat Doomed To Repeat

Doomed To Repeat

Doomed To Repeat is an actual-play podcast that builds an improvisational horror story using the Ennie award-winning tabletop roleplaying game, Delta Green.

The story centers around six "agents" working for the secret US government conspiracy known as Delta Green. For nearly a century this conspiracy has sacrificed countless agents to fight against very real unnatural horrors. These Eldritch truths must be kept hidden from the world at all costs.

However, when your organization's motto is "Scientia Mors Est" (knowledge is death) the bookkeeping can get messy and the unnatural is never truly understood.

That is, until our agents are assigned by their case officer to a new project known as operational PERENNIAL. The objective is simple; piece together the sordid history of their organization in order to better understand the vectors they face and how to stop them. After all, if we can't learn from our past we are doomed to repeat it.

The submission provided is episode 1 of arc 1 in which the agents investigate a recently deceased retired agent who may hold clues that can help their operation. It is a good example of the strong sound design, the compelling interplay between players, and ratcheting tension consistent throughout the entire show.

Doomed To Repeat has recently completed a second arc and due to popular demand, a third arc is in the works.

With Molly and Elle’s friendship left hanging in question, we start season 2 with Molly in London, England facing both her heartbreak from ‘The One’ and her new endometriosis/adenomyosis diagnoses. Back in Toronto, Elle has found herself a member of “Community”, a retreat where she went to recoup after a nervous breakdown.

Meanwhile, the ambitious Jordan has been juggling the ad agency he and Elle had started on his own. But when a high-stakes client requires him to go retrieve Elle he finds a very different version of his old workaholic/party-girl friend. In the meantime, Molly returns to Toronto and must learn how to ask for help in order to receive the surgery and support that she needs and Elle feels like everyone who ever loved her in the real world has abandoned her, and turns all of her co-dependant tendencies to “Community”. As Molly and Elle navigate their unseen illnesses and their paths continue to diverge, a permanent friendship-breakup seems inevitable... or could their paths to self-discovery bring them back together?
