Great new podcast!
Very glad to see this show on iTunes now. I've really enjoyed the first episodes after seeing someone mention them on Reddit and I look forward to each new topic.
A great gaming podcast that isn't edition specific. The topics are loose enough in format that they don't run off too far, but also that they can range a bit. Looking forward to the deities and the firearms episodes.
A Good Addition to the RPG Podcast Family
Admittedly I'm a friend of Chrispy, one of the hosts, so I might be biased, but I find the show a compelling addition to an increasingly crowded group of podcasts on tabletop roleplaying games. The hosts have an obvious camaraderie which makes sense since they are friends in real life.
The system agnostic approach works well and allows each of the hosts to leverage their expertise in various game systems to talk about general issues involved in all tabletop gaming.
They do occasionally ramble and leave the topic in their rearview mirror for a while, but that is to be expected when the show is almost like three friends sitting down over drinks talking about their gaming. Frankly, I find that to be part of the show's charm. Definitely worth checking out.
