Spirits of all types will be out in force this weekend as RCM gears up for Halloween! We've got a number of events planned throughout the weekend to give chills and thrills to the RCM community: *RCM On Tap kicks off the weekend with a special Halloween edition. Magneto (played by Scyther Podcasts' Karl) joins the Fourth Chair and tries to take over the moderator seat. Will he succeed? Find out Friday night - this pre-recorded episode will drop on Youtube at our normal airtime of 9:30 PM ET. *Baron's planning a horror game for his Friday night edition of Baron Busts. Due to real life commitments (i.e. the Baroness actually wants to see a horror movie!!!!), he'll air at a later time - watch the RCM Twitter feed Friday for details)
RCM's got a whole lot of awesome scheduled for this weekend! Due to special events and other things, some of the show times have been shifted around a bit to accommodate schedules. *Your Weekend of Awesome schedule for Oct. 16-18 started off with a very special guest for Friday's RCM On Tap - RivalFriend PetraCat was in studio to talk about game streaming, Ubisoft's Star Player program, and her behind-the-scenes experiences with other streamers and game developers. *Immediately following On Tap, Baron presented a very special all-night edition of Baron Busts Until Dawn: Wolfie's Revenge stream...joined by Wolfie himself! (Apparently Wolfie cooks very good bacon. When asked about this after the show, Wolfie told RCM Writing that the recipe was handed down in his wolfpack from his great-great-grandfather, the Big Bad Wolf!). Clocking in at nine hours and 45 minutes, Baron is pleased to announce the curse was broken - Wolfie's life was spared in this run-through!
