    05 - HELP!? Building RPG *Spoilers*

    Kia Ora! Welcome to a Glitter Episode! 

    Today I'm asking for your help. MASSIVE SPOILER WARNINGS on this episode. Joey, I'm looking at you. I'm writing a one shot, I've got a base story and ideas but I'm stuck. Also I've written a mechanic for madness that I want to use and I'd love your input as to what you think of how it would work. Maybe you'll spot the issues I've missed or provide some food for thought to make it better. Any interest is appreciated.

    Thanks to my Gems listening out there: James, Shell, Glenn, Lucas and Jason.

    25 Big Things

    25 Big Things

    Kia Ora! I’m going to tell you about one of my favorite silliness that is on display for you as you travel the country, showing our kiwi humor and pride in a way that you often don’t even have to get out of the car to see, though you always should. Big Things. Monuments of celebration and pride that mark our towns. Towering statues of what we’re known for. And I’m not actually talking about towering buildings, no i’m referring to some serious but mostly silly artwork from some enormous dreamers. They feature in most travel guides of our country too so even if you don’t believe me, after you’ve stopped listening get off and google them for yourself!

    Thanks to my Gems listening out there: James, Scott, Glenn, Lucas and Jason.

    Kia Ora! Welcome to a Glitter Episode

    So I come back to podcasting sheepishly as I feel incredibly guilty about not having the mental strength to do it while on lock down. I tell you what I have been up to while I've been away and what brings me back.

    23- Do The Hokey Pokey!

    23- Do The Hokey Pokey!

    You put the ingredients in, you take the microphone out*, you take Julz needing sugar and you shake it all about. You do the Hokey Pokey and you talk it all out. And that's what it's all about!!! 

    That's right! We took the microphone for a trip to the kitchen as Julz tries her hand at being a cooking show host and teaching you all about what Hokey Pokey is and it's history here in NZ, including making some live for you. So listen up and learn how to make your own comfort food today!

    Thanks to my Gems listening out there: James, Scott, Glenn, Lucas and Jason. I would be a lot more sad without you.

    This weeks NZ music is Sweet Lovers by Holidaymakers (Anchorites that clip is by original artist Bill Withers and it's not as good. Search the Holidaymakers version it's so much better!).

W.B. Otis ,

Educational and Hilarious!

I started listening to the podcast when the first episode was new. I'm a transplant from Jewel's other podcast Fate of Isen. This podcast is hilarious and has taught me tons about New Zealand! There are so many fascinating things about that country and culture I didn't know I didn't know.
