1''The Drunk and The Ugly'' is a podcast featuring actual plays of {{Tabletop RPG}}s and occasionally other content like interviews and reviews. The group generally strays from dungeon crawlers, opting for more character driven pieces. Games played include ''TabletopGame/MonstersAndOtherChildishThings'', ''TabletopGame/EclipsePhase'', ''TabletopGame/CallOfCthulhu'', ''TabletopGame/LittleFears'', ''TabletopGame/WildTalents'', and several home brews. Their most popular game, ''[[ Mrs. Frieda's Halfway Home for Terrible and Freakish Children]]'', is run in ''Monsters and Other Childish'' things and is about a group of supernaturally "gifted" teenagers living in a halfway home in a small midwestern city. ˛˛They also have a [[ let's play channel]]. ˛˛Their cast page can be found [[ here]].˛˛----˛!!Trope examples in ''Mrs. Frieda's''˛˛%%* ActionFashionista: Etsu.˛%%* TheAdjectivalMan: The Grinning Man.˛* ChildSoldier: Nele is a genetically-engineered super soldier, as are [[spoiler:his brother Newt, Bansee Queen, and Butch's entire army of street kids.]] There's a whole bunch of 'em!˛%%* ChristmasEpisode: Aptly titled "The Mandatory Christmas Special".˛%%* DarkWorld: [[spoiler: Odyn’s house of horrors in The Fall of the House of Odyn]]˛* DestinationDefenestration: [[spoiler: Eld gets thrown out the window in the penultimate battle with Leviathan]].˛%%* EverythingsDeaderWithZombies: Jingles just likes to hang with the gang!˛%%* FrankensteinsMonster: "BY THE POWER OF HAMMERS, I AM...
