For our second episode I interview one of my favourite game designers, John Wick, and I am joined by my friend Julien with whom I participate in his audio podcast about roleplaying games Les Voix d'Altaride.
In this episode we talk about John Wick the movie, John's inspiration and creative process, roleplaying games, principles of game design, cooperative board games, examples of subversive storytelling, live-action roleplaying games (LARPs), the best movie ever made, and the best book ever written.
I had great pleasure interviewing John and I hope you enjoy listening!
