I had a new B&B in the can. Had it outlined, recorded, and ready to be edited – but it got scratched. Instead, I wanted to speak to what we’re seeing in Charlottesville, VA today. I am thankful that we are now seeing the Church refuse to be silent about racism … Continue reading
We’re joined this week by Matthew Surber, who’s both the Program Director at the West River Center in Maryland and a game designer affiliated with Defy Danger Adventures. We actually found Matthew through the most unlikely of sources (Reddit comments, of all things) but he turned out to be a fantastic guest! After addressing Patreon backer Tom’s question about broad and narrow skills in roleplaying games, and a quick diversion from Jenny about the dangers of Canada’s nucl […]
Chester Bennington wrote songs that spoke to my youth, and news of his death hit a lot of us who turned to his music during a tumultuous time of our lives. In this tale – I want to tell you a personal story. My story. I know there have been many … Continue reading
Our Ten Commandments series returns with the Fourth Commandment: “Remember the Sabbath and keep it holy.” Before we get to that, however, we have a bit of business to go over and a bit of catching up to do. We spend a little time discussing our Patreon support, since we haven’t updated listeners on that in a while.

After all that’s out of the way, though, we tackle a big question from Patreon supporter Richard, who asks us about our favorite RPG characters.
All that taken care of, we dive headfirst int […]

It’s a special bonus episode this week, as Jenny and Peter recap their Fear the Con experiences! Peter also recently wrote about his very emotional slot 6 game, and if you haven’t read that yet, you really should. Special thanks to everyone involved in planning and producing Fear the Con; everyone we gamed with; and everyone who helped with the charity drive for Pat this year!
Also, our apologies for any audio issues in this episode; this was recorded on a single microphone designed for one person, so there was a lot of handing the mic back and forth. (On the other hand, this was recorded on Jenny’s new audio equipment, so look forward to a better sound from her on future episodes!)
When I was a kid – I wore out the VHS tape I had of an animated movie called The Flight of Dragons. One of the characters in the story was a young, immature house dragon by the name of Gorbash. When the prophesied hero from the world of men … Continue reading
