Sure, the podcast doesn't start until next year, but look at who is going to be on it!
You really can't go wrong with this at all. My good buddy James is not only knowledgeable and informative, he's a dream to listen to!
That smooth velvety voice is just amazing to blast in your car, on a walk via your headphones, or throughout the whole house for all to enjoy!
Great interview, keep it coming!
As a recent player/DM of 5E, resurrected from 2E, I enjoyed this podcast. I enjoyed the the inside look from hearing from Mike and it gave me perspective on the current state of affairs and it helped me articulate why I am recently drawn back into the RPG world.
