Interviewed at Dicecast

I was interviewed for Polymancer’s DiceCast at FanExpo this year, and that episode just went live.

The audio quality isn’t great—we were recording inside the convention hall after it closed for the day—but it’s still totally listenable. I talk about my role at Catalyst, Eclipse Phase, and offer some advice on breaking into the game industry as a freelancer.

Thanks to the Polymancer folks for having me!

2D6 Feet in a Random Direction

2D6 Feet in a Random Direction is one of my favorite gaming podcasts. It delivers gaming news from well-connected and knowledgeable hosts [Chris Hanrahan and Brian Isikoff] and guests, reviews, actual play reports, and California and USA west-coast gaming scene news.

The show’s producers recently had some issues with their web hosting, and so I offered to and have taken over hosting the site—leaving Chris and Brian free to work on the show itself.

If you’re a gamer, the perspectives from the 2D6 cast are well-worth listening to. If you’re regularly buying and trying new games, I’d classify it as a must-listen!

Paul Tevis ransoming 4 episodes of Have Games Will Travel

Game podasting demon Paul Tevis is currently using the ransom model to release 4 episodes of his podcast, Have Games Will Travel: For a Few Games More. These four episodes are already recorded and will be released once a week for a month if Paul reaches his very modest goal, using the Fundable pledging service.

I’ve listened to dozens — hundreds, probably — of Paul’s podcasts over the last few years, so it was a no-brainer to throw a few bucks down to support this effort.

Mur Lafferty’s Playing for Keeps Podcast/PDF

Playing for Keeps is the newest piece of fiction being podcasted by well-known podcaster and author Mur Lafferty. Playing for Keeps takes place in Seventh City, the birthplace of super powers, and the story of Keepsie Branson, one of the Seventh’s residents that has powers … but not enough power to be a villain or hero.

Playing for Keeps is being podcasted, distributed in PDF, and there’s also additional user-created content: a secondary podcast called Stories of the Third Wave, with more on the way. I recommend listening to the actual podcast, as Mur’s faux drunk voices always make me smile.
