Great OSR-ish podcast!

I follow a half-dozen RPG podcasts but just discovered this one, and have already listened to five episodes in three days. I love the mix of personalities and viewpoints, but they don’t overwhelm the listener with inside jokes and idle chit chat that are common in too many podcasts.
