    I believe Mr.Glancy was referring to “Laird Barron” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laird_Barron

    Loved the episode btw, get more RPG authors drunk!

      I am embarrassed, I should have understood Laird Barron and not Larry Barrin. I think I might have been thinking of Larry Bird? I don’t know. It was Friday!
