Scheduling continues to kick us while we are down. We’ve got another episode in editing though, and that will come out soon.
We had the chance to talk with Jerry Grayson recently. To be fair, Jerry tracked us down, ducked taped us all to chairs and did unspeakable things. Like eat in front of us in his underwear. No really, we have pictures!
After he let us go though, for some reason we felt compelled to continue talking with him. Must be Stockholm syndrome or something.
We talked with him about the newest Hellas expansion, Princes of the Universe. We posted about the Kickstart in an earlier post. I am happy to say that it has made it’s goal! So we will be seeing it in it’s full color print glory soon.
In addition to Princes of the Universe, we did our best rabid dolphin impression, like we did with Fred Hicks, and talked about a wide range of topics (some gaming, some not). We look forward to seeing him at Gen Con, and hope you do to at one of the games he is running. Until then though, enjoy our episode!
Most of the crew is back, and we’re up for our second show. We talk about why we had such a long hiatus, where we’ve been while we were away, and then talk about the future of the podcast.
Welcome back peeps, and to those new listeners, welcome aboard!
Edit: Just so you all know, we’ve already recorded episode 3 even though scheduling woes still seem to be plaguing us. As soon as Dan can edit it, we’ll post up episode 3.
So we met last Friday to talk about the podcast and ended up failing to save the world, but then tried again and saved it. I’m talking about Pandemic here, the cooperative board game where you play roles in the CDC to find the cure for four virii before they spread to pandemic proportions and kill off the world as we know it. It’s a great game.
This isn’t a game review though, we just wanted to let you guys know that though we met last Friday we didn’t actually record. Dan wasn’t able to make it, and Erin was just about dead on her feet from work. So we talked a while and played Pandemic to remind ourselves that we are friends and yes, we really do want to do this podcast thing.
Mario and Shaun looked good, and we talked about some of the hurdles that we are going to need to overcome if we are going to continue the podcast. Like: Job scarcity, the distance it is from them to the place we record (my house), scheduling, and possible changes in format (looks like there will be little of that).
So next Friday, that would be April 30th, we are going to see about recording… something. It may be actual play, it may just be a couple of us talking. We shall have to see. It’s still something we do for fun, and we don’t make money off of it (the job scarcity part would probably be easier if we did), so please bear with us as we get closer to the launch of season 4.
Welcome back listeners.
We’ve been away for a long time, and are now returning, better than ever!
This is a state of the podcast talk, and as always, we welcome your feedback. We will be returning to the regular show in a few weeks, so stay subscribed and we’ll be back in your ears sooner that you expect.
