Hearthside Chat with Hannah Shaffer of Turtlebun

Well…technically, Hearthside Chats, if I’m being honest. It took so long since Hannah (@hanbandit) and I had our first interview that I had to ask her to come back on the show for an update! Make sure you check out Hannah and her design partner Evan Rowland’s (@adrawnnovel) wonderfully weird games over on their website, […]

Corner Office: Part Two

Hello, Actioneers! It has recently come to management’s attention that many of you are using this podcast as a means of distracting yourself from the doldrums of the day. This is unacceptable. Doldrums and depression suffered by our employees are not to be remedied by entertainment. They are to be suffered through in stoic silence […]

Corner Office: Part One

Good morning, you productive little worker bees! This is Nate from HR and I just want to thank you for your hard work and dedication in these troubling and challenging times.

One Shot: This Game Takes Place in Your Home Town

Richard and I haven’t had the chance to hang out face-to-face recently, what with the move and all. We thought we’d remedy that with a good ol’ fashion Jenga-based TTRPG! Last time, we played the excellent Wickies and made it all the way to the end of the game without dying somehow. Can we push […]

The Inn Between: Kids on Bikes

Hello! Cory and Melanie came back on to discuss all things Kids on Bikes.

Nate’s okay. Thanks for joining us for the conclusion of our Kids on Bikes episode! All considering, I think it came out […]

Hearthside Chat with Connor Heighton, Author of Osmond Ward

Hello, teslapunk fans! What’s teslapunk, you ask? I also had no idea until I asked today’s guest, the incredible indie author Connor Heighton (@cjheighton)! Connor (aka CJ) is a delightfully creative author who is using his game, Osmond Ward (@OsmondTTRPG) to spread the love to small designers throughout the hobby. If you’re interested in learning […]

Kids on Bikes: A-MAIZE-ing Adventures Part One

Hello you sweet and wonderful listeners! Cory, Melanie, Richard, and Nate got together via Al Gore’s internet to play Jonathan Gilmour & Doug Levandowski’s Kids on Bikes. If you’re a fan of 80s popular media and yearn for a simpler, more monster-y time, I can’t recommend Kinds on Bikes enough. The system is simple and […]

The Inn Between: Masks Chat!

We can’t get enough of Eric and Matt and so we lured them back on the show for a chat about super heroes, art vs artist, and…human centipedes… Yeah. Anyway, it was fantastic meeting up with these guys at PAX East this weekend and we can’t wait to continue our Masks adventure!   If you […]
