    Episode 23 - Scenario Design: Red Markets

    This month Matt and Travis invite 3 special guests (and one tag along) to the show. Travis has struggled trying to work with the Red Market's RPG system. Tonight, with the help of our guests, we hope to rectify that. Along the way we will talk the different focuses GM's have when designing games, our advice for learning how to write scenarios, and personal tricks for running games.
    Special thanks to Technical Difficulties' Greg, Laura, and Adam as well as Roleplaying Exchange's Sean for all their assistance with the creation of this episode.

    Episode 22 - Detroit vs The Wire

    Episode 22 - Detroit vs The Wire

    David Cage's Detroit: Become Human has become something of a bad joke among those who have experienced it due to its nonsensical twists and poor handling of the idea of the Civil Rights Movement.  Since the internet at large has spent more than their fair share of time beating it down, we felt like comparing it to another cop story that deals with the subject of racial inequality by also discussing the first season of David Simon's 2002-2008 HBO Drama The Wire. 
    We also talk in detail about the concept of Sensitivity Editors and other ideas to bring more grounding to your work and iron out problems you may not think you had.

    Paranoia Agent is an animated program from Satoshi Kon, director of animated films such as Millennium Actress, Tokyo Godfathers, and Paprika.  Paranoia Agent was described as a way for him to use ideas that he wasn't able to fit into his other feature films, connecting the scraps into an anthology by way of a framing device. 
    In this episode we discuss the themes of Paranoia Agent and the meanings of anthologies, series, and serials.

    The Hasbrothers - Battleship

    As of now, as of right this second, there's a new dynamic at play.  And this dynamic is the final from here on out until I state otherwise.  There'll be no more debate, no more discussion, no more compromise. It's me speaking you listening, me saying you doing. Do you understand that? 
    It's time for a new course of action. A new direction. A game change.
    You're joining me in the navy.

Greg/Sandcastles/luffy316 ,

might just be my favorite podcast

The release schedule's slow, but as a writer, tabletop gamer, and regular devourer of podcasts, it might be my most eagerly awaited one. they've always got an odd perspective on things that helps how I look at my games as well as just plain teaches me things about obscure media, strange concepts, or just new angles to look at storytelling. Always good for a few laughs and always learning something new, and some real entertaining back and forth of balancing levels of enthusiasm and even response to that enthusiasm (which tends to go Travis-to-Matt, but damned if it doesn't just swap around sometimes)
followed their big brother podcast Drunk and Ugly for ages, and two of my fav players from that talking shop is just a real treat. keep it up, folks!
