Feeling burnt out?
Did you know that you can X-Wing in ways other than tense tournaments wherein crazed competitors engage in savage bloodletting over acrylic shinies?
And that these other methods of X-Winging can actually be fun? Moisture Farmer takes command of this episode to remind Dee of that word...FUN. He leads a discussion of alternatives to the standard 100 point dogfight, and we spend the bulk of our enthusiasm on the terrific (and free!) Heroes of Aturi Cluster cooperative campaign.

With the offseason doldrums cramping our style, the Mynock Podcast is going a bit retro today. We bring back some of our older segments in an attempt to drum up interesting conversation. Dee discusses how Miranda makes his brain hurt, Texx tells us how to stay on the board, and Ryan tries to not be invisible to the masses. Also, Imperial Firespray SHIP SPOTLIGHT!

This week we have a very special I Am Your Father's Day Special! Worlds 2015 Runner up Nathan Eide and his father Kevin join the show to discuss all things X-Wing. Nathan goes through all of his winning lists and talks strategy while Kevin gives his insight into being the father of an X-Wing celebrity...he also gets a SICK burn in on Dee (who totally deserves it).

Hello Nerf Herders and Womp Rats! We have actually made it to EPISODE 20! To celebrate, FFG was kind enough to reveal what is coming in Wave 9! Armed with this newfound knowledge hosts Ryan, Dee, and Dallas speculate what kind of beautiful goodness is headed our way later this year...well...maybe. They also discuss the average speed of FFG's cargo boat and if we would be better off giving our stuff to Pilgrims to ship for us.
