A much-needed breath of fresh air!

Thank you for bringing a much needed breath of fresh air to the SCA discourse. I am excited to watch more tech-savvy people of my generation using the internet to gain a voice and draw attention to the rather antiquated (ha) views of many SCAdians. This podcast is funny, smart, thoughtful, and highly educational. Don't let the poor sound quality and low volume of the first few episodes deter you, this one is worth your time! - Lady Ursula de Strattone, Artemisia
