    If you have ever played a legacy board game, you know that you destroy components as you play. If you've ever played a legacy board game with Dog and Thimble co-host Alana, you know that she hides those components under the box insert because she can't bear to tear up a card. As it turns out, editing a podcast is similar. There were some bits that we loved too much to get rid of. In this episode we pour our box of shame onto the table for you with some of the bits that were cut for time.
