Aces & Jokers: A Wild Cards Podcast

We’re reading and discussing Wild Cards, a set of shared-world superhero novels edited by George R. R. Martin. We don't own Wild Cards and this is not an official podcast. We use brief clips from the audiobooks and other sources to illustrate and aid discussion. Spoilers abound.

In this episode we discuss the second half of Deuces Down (Wild Cards Book 16).

Show Notes

Keeping it teeny and tidy:

  • We think the first time we saw Gangsta Joey was in Down and Dirty (Book 5), when Yeoman puts an arrow through the arms of an unnamed mafioso. Let us know if we got that wrong.
  • Here's the pic Ben wanted you to see.
