Dan Ryckert, Mary Kish, and Mike Mahardy can’t shut down bars while talking about video games like they used to, so they created Fire Escape to keep those chats going from across the country. Support this podcast:

Episode Date
Fire Escape Cast #13
The Fire Escape trio is approaching spooky season, which means it's time to talk about Midnight Mass and Squid Game (duh). Also, there are approximately 138857 new video games to play, so the gang does its best to cover them all.

Fire Escape Cast #10
The Fire Escapees have an embarrassment of riches in video game form to talk about, from the intricate time loop mystery of The Forgotten City, to the less intricate time loop mystery of 12 Minutes. Also, the gang makes history with the creation of the FEUS (Fire Escape Universal Scale). They rate everything from cheese to the bible.

SPOILER ALERT: The trio goes into detail regarding 12 Minutes, so if you're interested in playing the game, or haven't finished yet, skip past the following time stamps: 59:29-1:27:35 AND 2:02:46 - 2:03:33)

Fire Escape Cast #9
This week on the sexiest podcast ever created, the gang talks about their time with The Ascent, Axiom Verge 2, and returning to The Simpsons. Dan botches a game's nomenclature in a truly horrific way. Mary argues for the value of dogs over cats. Mike can't shut up about Wildermyth.

Fire Escape Cast #8
Death's Door has captured the hearts and minds of the Fire Escape trio, and Mike rants about the procedural storytelling of Wildermyth. Also: Dan and Mary compiled a list of 30 Simpsons episodes for Mike to peruse at his leisure. He might like the show. He might hate it. He might finally understand all of Mary's references. Time will tell.

No, your eyes and ears are not deceiving you. It's a Fire Escape Cast off-week, but we're here anyway.

Fire Escape Cast Trailer
Introducing the Fire Escape Cast, a show about video games with Dan Ryckert, Mary Kish, and Mike Mahardy. The trio used to shut down bars while talking about video games, so they created Fire Escape to keep those nights going from across the country. This trailer will tell you everything you need to know about the show, and plenty of things you don't need to know. You be the judge of that. See if they care.
