Nero the Pict - Crackpot Podcast Ep 38

Special guest from north of Yo Adrian's Wall, Nero the Pict.  I didn't remember to bring this up during the podcast, but this is my favorite nom de James, partly because of my interest in Hadrian's Wall but really because it is perfect.

Nero tells us about the restaurant and social scene in Baltimore, which may be in your city's future, so pay attention.  He talks about his interest in history, including the riots of 1968, restrictions on trucks in the city, and many funny stories.

The Crackpot Podcast features itinerant writer and laborer James LaFond, and sleep deprived motherslave Lynn Lockhart.
