At the table techniques

I love listening to Judd’s daydreams and techniques. As a long-time GM/Referee, Judd’s podcast feels like I’m at the table with a fellow RPG enthusiast that is passionate about games and conversing about games.

This podcast is facilitating and sharing RPG conversations across different media (podcasts, streams, blogs, emails, tweets).

I am someone that loves the RPG hobby and talking about its many facets, and I highly recommend this podcast.

Judd drops insight bombs like presents

Judd has been gaming and reading designing and daydreaming about games for 30+ years and he is just a font of wisdom and insight. Daydreaming about Dragons are short snippets of his experiences and his inspiration and they are just so good. Give it a listen and if it excites you like it does me, drop Judd a reply for the reply shows!

Schizophrenic

Was enjoying this when I found it, but lately it feels like a panic attack delving into a lot of woe is me and political chat. Just an FYI if you’re looking for a gaming podcast to be about gaming.
