Episode Info: A few weeks ago, we discussed The Games People Play. On this episode of The Unadulterated BS Podcast, we are the people and the game is Public Assistance. Join us as we traverse the Able-Bodied Welfare Recipient Promenade in this special podcast edition. ON PUBLIC ASSISTANCE Welcome to a very special edition of The Unadulterated BS Podcast. On this episode, we welcome in our friends and past podcast guests Beth, Greg, Craig and Simple Nate as we go bouncing between the Able-Bodied Welfare Recipient Promenade and the Working Person’s Rut in the game that asks “Why Bother Working for a Living?” On this episode, we sit down and play Public Assistance.

Beth steps in to help both the custodian and a few players throughout the 90-minutes. There is an extensive rule reading in the early part of the recording. I know, despite reading them thoroughly, that we missed quite a few items. Feel free to send any glaring rules omissions to unadulteratedbs@gmail.com and we’ll discuss them in upcoming podcasts. PAYING THE TAX MAN At the end of the night, we do have a winner. We won’t spoil it here in the podcast notes, but it’s an entertaining ride. Players gained and lost Illegitimate children to the Working Person’s Rut. Government jobs were claimed and lost by live-ins and spouses. Crimes were committed. PlRead more »
