We stood at the edge of the abyss, staring into the violent darkness and shouted, “WE LOVE SANDWICH POPE PHIL HAWKINS! YOU CANNOT HAVE HIM!” and the darkness whispered back, “Have him then.” So the Randomizer chose a Phil Hawkins game TWO WEEKS IN A ROW bringing us Ghoul Patrol this week! Have you heard of Ghoul Patrol? Probably not. Its the sequel to Zombies Ate My Neighbors, but you wouldn’t guess that from the title. We talk about Bois, Burger King, and Kid’s Cuisine – like always. But this time we all sprinkle in some Ghoul Patron chat. Enjoy!
From the darkest depths of the darkest night, the Randomizer chose for us play Dungeon Master, the 1992 port of a 1987 Atari ST dungeon crawler. It has some good history and some bad history. To do a proper study of this game we bring on Sandwich Pope Phil Hawkins, as we do with all SNES dungeon crawlers. We talk about Melissa’s experience with the Country Music Awards, the glory of Herald Arthur’s battlecry of PINGAS, and our old stomping ground of Palace Chat. Enjoy!
Has it been a long and difficult week for you? Do you need some podcast TLC? Don’t you worry, baby, we got you covered. We invite the Top Fan and Sandwich Pope of the TADPOG Nation, Phil Hawkins, on to discuss the Randomizer chosen Wizardry V. Don’t worry, Phil can’t keep us track all the time so we delve into more Soda Jerks, Circumcision Trinkets, Dungeons and Dragons, and we take a sweet little magic quiz from our very own Ross-Rachel Green. You’ve got 2 hours of love headed your way, we hope you enjoy!
Sandwich Pope Phil Hawkins joins our adventuring party and lends us his extraordinary personality to talk about Might and Magic III: The Isles of Terra for the SNES. We have felt the magic and we are accepting the challenge to talk about this 1995 port of the classic DOS role-playing game. There’s a lot of game talk in this one, but there’s also bonus Audio Memes(TM).
We are joined by Sandwich Pope Phil Hawkins and Time Lord Josh Edwards to talk about TADPOG Nation’s expedition to Louisville Arcade Expo 2018 (aka TADPOG Prom).

Sandwich Pope Phil joins us to talk about his favorite game for the Sega Genesis (and possibly ever!), Beavis and Butt-Head. We open a package from Archmage Chris Edler and try some tater chips. We pitch Wayne’s Dark Dark Place. We talk about obtuse puzzles. Blue balls! Is it a thing? We talk about controversial television episodes. Continue reading →
Sandwich Pope Phil Hawkins join us to talk Diablo, the 1996 action RPG by Blizzard. This is a super-sized episode! We didn’t plan it that way but there’s a lot of nostalgia fueled game discussion. And of course some of those sweet sweet tangents. We take the trendiest Facebook quiz about each other. Phil does a TADPOG and Friends live reading of Frog and Toad. Phil attempts to defends his title of TADPOG Sandwich Pope.
We’re joined by Sweetheart Josh Nance and Sandwich Pope Phil to talk about Zelda II: The Adventure of Link for the Nintendo Entertainment System (aka the Dark Souls of Zelda games). Technically, Dave asks a lot of questions while Tyler, Josh and Phil talk about the game. Phil reads YouTube comments, shares an embarrassing poop story, and we talk about the ghost of Dragoncon future. Oh! And TADPOG shirts!
