Firewatch – PC/MAC/PS4/XBOX

Firewatch is a single-player first-person mystery set in the Wyoming wilderness.

The year is 1989. You are a man named Henry who has retreated from his messy life to work as a fire lookout in the Wyoming wilderness. Perched high atop a mountain, it’s your job to look for smoke and keep the wilderness safe. An especially hot, dry summer has everyone on edge. Your supervisor Delilah is available to you at all times over a small, handheld radio—your only contact with the world you’ve left behind. But when something strange draws you out of your lookout tower and into the forest, you’ll explore a wild and unknown environment, facing questions and making choices that can build or destroy the only meaningful relationship you have.

427 Best Of: Adoption & Religious Abuse – Julie J

Funny and vulnerable, Julie was born to a drug-addict teenage mom, was given up for adoption and raised by a stoic military dad and Fundamentalist mom whose obsession with demons comes close to resembling the mother from “Carrie”.  From 2013

I forgot to mention it in the episode but the monthly-donor raffle for this cutting board is thru Wed Mar 27th.  Donors get one guess per $5/month donation.  So a $10 donor would get two guesses etc.  I have chosen a number between 1 and 500 and the person who guesses closest will win the cutting board (and shipped to them).
