What’s up muthafuckas?!
While you are all trolling the halls of Gen Con you may need some sweet-ass-sweet podcast talk to get you by. At least maybe for that drive home.
In this week’s episode Brendan and Ben are winding down from con season and the disastrous LepreCon while you guys are out there enjoying it’s zenith. They are joined by the Mysterious Jeff for the first half and then by their homie Keith in the second half. It’s our longest episode yet, and really it’s pretty not bad. Except for the technical issues we had recording Keith, that was terrible!
We talk about what we’ve been up to, what’s new with our favorite lines and the past, present and future of pulp fiction with our friend Keith Shaw.
Anyway, pull up a chair, crack a beer, paint some models, whatever. Here’s to episode 25!
Portrait of a playa: KB Shaw.
In which Brendan and Ben are joined by none other than Josh of the Wrecking Crew and their podcast, Podcast: the Wreckening. The three talk about the difference between rules light and rules heavy as opposed to crunchy vs. not crunchy.
Get with our homies at the internationally renown Wrecking Crew here:
In which Brendan and Ben are joined by Randy, a GM’s GM. Randy talks about the epic, long running game he has been crafting and the monster manual he is producing so that you can share some of his adventures at you table. Brendan needs more than just a protein shake after working-out and he and Ben find a way to make it all about the Kickstarters! Yea!
In which Brendan treks down to Arizona State University, a second time, to get an interview with guests Lance Gharavi and Sarah Zorman. They discuss the recent production of “She Kills Monsters” at ASU. Then, Brendan does a little bit of GM style book-keeping with the listeners.
In which Brendan and Ben are joined by their new ally, Jim. We get insights into the second local Iron GM the group has attended as well as Crit Hit! 2016, a tabletop RPG only convention that Jim is in the process of organizing.
The End of Season One is Nigh Fellow Travelers! The blitz comes to a close with the last of FMRPG’s stockpiled episodes. Brendan and Ben reach back into the mists of January to interview Iron GM extraordinaire Ben Mandall about his thoughts on the social contract as it applies to sitting down at the table. There are a lot of conflicting viewpoints in this episode, and Brendan sighs MORE THAN EVER!
In which Brendan and Ben are greatly humbled to spend an evening in discussion with gaming luminary John Wick. Much is discussed: what works, what doesn’t. John talks about his record shattering 7th Sea Kickstarter. Jax the Dog doesn’t feel like he’s getting enough air time, and spends 10 minutes barking.
