Excellent Show!

Extremely good podcast with awesome hosts. Rissa knows her stuff and adds so many interesting anecdotes. Ben is clever and has so much knowledge.
A Must listen for anyone wanting to run Star Wars games.

The Great Podcast Tale

This show is a fantastic resource for GMs and players. They give advice that can transfer to basically any system not just those playing FFG’s Star Wars & Genesys. Lots of great ideas here!

Let me know the Risa is gone

Used to be a treasure chest of ideas. Now it is just a platform for Risa to talk about herself. Insane and useless. Way past time for a change in hosts.
