Fun and engaging
I am enjoying what these guys are setting out to trying to help develop listeners as fifth edition gamers. I'm also looking forward to seeing what topics they come up with and getting listeners involved.
I can identify
What I like about these guys is that they seem very relatable. I DM for one group now and a lot of what is talked about are issues I run into and ways they overcome them.
For example, gaining inspiration for creativity. Listening to techno or chillstep, I listen to cello and Zoe Keating, haunting music that really takes my mind into places, sometimes very dark, but still promotes creativity.
Keep it up, guys!
Fun and Entertaining!
I am really digging this show after finding it on /r/RPG. Granted I've only heard two shows and listened to an "after dark" show, but I love it! The hosts are funny and never leave a dull gap in the conversation. They have great chemistry together on the show, laughing and having fun with each other. I think two of the hosts who live in Texas are married, which would explain their great banter back and forth! Oh and third host (Sal?) sound familiar? Reminds me of my favorite english teach back in high school. Keep it up folks!
