Bonus Episode 56 – Chris gets caught
by Dan Repperger

In this episode, we talk about Chris’ trip home from the con and the misadventures he has with a cop on a fishing expedition and a gas station attendant telling rather implausible war stories.

* (0:23) Please leave reviews for Sojourn on Barnes & Noble to help us get it stocked in stores!  If you’re still looking to buy the book, you can find a list of places it’s available for sale here.

* (1:21) Some thanks to some of the unsung folks that made Fear the Con 7 possible.

* (4:59) Post-con stories.

* (7:22) Chris has a run-in with a cop at 2:00am.

* (25:49) Chris meets the RPG guy.  How an RPG warhead works.

Hosts: Chris, Dan, Pat, Wayne

God Chris.
You are such a Minnesotan.
Generally, I have the same series of reactions with police officers that you describe.
Thank the Good Lord RPG Guy didn’t offer you pie, you would have never gotten out of there.

Minnesotans generally have a much different understanding of The Social Contract than most others.

You are correct, sir. Funny addendum… when I pulled up to the C-store, RPG Guy was talking to a woman. It appeared at first to me that the two knew each other, but I realized after my experience that wasn’t likely true. She was also probably just trapped as well, and happy to see that I had arrived.

Regarding police on highways, I have noticed in the UK that if they’re not urgently going somewhere, they usually drive on the motorway (70 MPH limit) at about 60-65 MPH so that traffic can flow past them without everyone intentionally slowing down well below the speed limit. This way people feel “safe” to overtake. I guess this also gives them a good opportunity to observe passing traffic without overly spooking anyone.

This seems like a Very Good Idea.

Dan is absolutely right. Remember and exercise your own rights! Repeat after me:
“Am I being detained, or am I free to go?”
“Is that a request, or an order?”
“Am I being arrested?”

I have listened to this episode and the “Chris and the Crimson Pumpkin” one more than I’ve watched most of my favorite movies.
Chris is the best.
