About OLD SCOUT:
Hi, Im Christian. When I was a little kid I was a cub scout. But then, I quit. Im not really sure why, and Ive kinda regretted it for 20 years, because I do love adventure and gear and making stuff and uniforms and patches and badges and setting arbitrary goals for myself. Now Im 30 and I want some adventure and Im not allowed to be an official boy scout. So Im gonna do it it on my own. Im gonna do the entire curriculum of scouts from Cub to Eagle in one year. This is Old Scout.
May 6, 2019 Episode Description:
Every week we on Old Scout we tackle a merit badge. This week were taking on the DRAMATICS merit badge! So in the span of five days, David Girard and I will write, direct, and perform a play. What is the play about? We have no idea. Will it be a disaster? Maybe. Will it be the best play youve seen this year? Almost certainly not. Will it be a funky fun adventure? I think! Old Scout makes one episode a week (released every Thursday) documenting this process - and this week TFT is a part of the process! David and Christian will write a play in 24 hours and then perform and it for you while filming it for an episode of OLD SCOUT. Dont miss out!
