D.C. #29: Rumour Mill

Breakin’ the law, breakin’ the law. Johno and Chris are on the lam in this episode, smuggling stolen goods! That’s right, it’s time for HOT SCOOPS from Nisei’s first cycle, Ashes. And on this illicit occasion, the theme is bad publicity!

Before that, they break down what the NAPD have been up to with their most recent Most Wanted List, and they finish with the return of the game “Dean Lister”, focusing on the more illicit, seedier side of Netrunner.

Precognition (0:18:01)

Johno and Chris discuss the three new cards they have their hands on! They occasionally meander to discuss what the value of bad publicity really is and what it means to exchange late-game advantage for an advantage right now and when you should do the opposite, and also what even is a “roughneck”.
