Welcome to Fake or Folklore, the game show sensation that’s SWEEPING the nation! Hosted by Charles the Gamesman, aka Eric Silver of Join the Party, Amanda and Julia are put to the test to see if they can parse actual folklore from a morass of weird stuff from Eric’s brain, the internet, and beyond! The best part is, you can play along at home—download your scorecard on our Patreon.

The Scientology/Neopets relationship, as mentioned in this episode, is a great read.



Eric Silver is an audio producer, writer, teacher and poet. He is the host, the Dungeon Master, and a producer of Join the Party. He loves chunky peanut butter, cardigans, and being five minutes early. Follow him on Twitter (and wish him a happy birthday) @el_silvero!
