A breath of fresh cardboard...
After listening to Flip the Table for many years I can honestly say it was is my favorite board-gaming podcast. One of the things about listening to a podcast for so long is you become attached to the people behind the microphone. So when the show ended, needless to say everybody was a bit upset.
Fast forward through the many dark months until Flip Florey unveiled his new podcast to much excitement. Flip, along with a myriad of rotating guest hosts, breathe fresh new ideas and content into a variety show that immediately stands out from the rest. He takes chances, brings a completely different vibe and flow, yet retains the fun, spirit, and energy he brought to Flip the Table.
No matter what I’m listening to at home or on my way to work, this is the show that always gets pushed to the top of the list. We all have that one show and I believe this could be yours as well.
Inspired by the Sniffenspiel segment, I decided to base my review on how well the podcast smells. However, given the digital nature of the podcast, I had to use an avatar of sorts to stand in for the show. I chose my grandmas yellow cake with chocolate icing.
First, though, I had to flip the cake over to make it a suitable stand in for FFSSBGS. The reason being: the main part of the show (the cake) comes first. Flip and a guest take a popular board game and re-theme it. This section takes the longest and isn’t going to make you sick if you ingest too much of it.
The icing is on the bottom because the shorter, end of the episode segments are great tasting, but will give you a tummy-ache if you have too much.
Much to my surprise, upsides down yellow cake with chocolate icing smells nearly identical to right side up yellow cake with chocolate icing, that is, delicious. It’s one of my favorite smells, so I give the podcast what I would give the cake, a 5 star rating.
Good thing I wasn’t reviewing the podcast by how easily it is to eat, because, dagonne, the icing is getting stuck to the plate now...
A worthy successor to Flip The Table
Like many fans of the cheesy, weird, and obscure, I was saddened when the Flip The Table podcast ended their 5 year run. It was one of the few shows that I consistently listened to ASAP after each episode dropped. So when I heard that Flip Florey would be starting a new podcast, I was very excited! I’ve listened to the first two episodes, and I can’t wait to hear more! Check this one out!
