So we’re pretty excited for GenCon.
There’s a lot of stuff going on this week, and we’re going to start aggressively talking about Gen Con tomorrow, but first there’s this!
Welcome to the first GDC Podcast!
This is admittedly new territory, as neither Cass nor I had ever done a podcast before. Usually the poor souls who are subjected to our endless pontification are the people around us, who do not have the convenient option to not listen to whatever we are complaining about that week; the idea that people will voluntarily choose to listen to our blather is interesting and amusing to me.
So anyways, last weekend Cass and I sat down at his kitchen counter, cracked open some beverages and recorded our thoughts on a few issues. I don’t want to spoil any of the awesome surprises in store, but suffice to say the first 13 minutes or so are about what “Defending the Social Contract” means, the next 3 minutes are something we will both be trying to disavow ourselves of in a few years, and the last 15 minutes or so are about Land Destruction, which connects to the Dear Azami article from last week.
We had a lot of fun recording this thing, and we probably do another one as soon as we find some other obscure beverage to sample and/or things to complain about. As we mention several times, we really want people to comment and we are really unsure how people typically respond to podcasts. Again, we’re learning. Ideally, we’d love for you to listen to this thing and then offer us feedback on the following:
-how did we do overall?
-what suggestions can you offer us to do better in the future?
-what points that we made resonate (or don’t resonate) with you?
-and most important, what obscure beverage should we sample next?
Thanks! We will be back tomorrow with some thoughts about GenCon, and then we’ll be on site for the rest of the week and weekend. It’s gonna be tight!
(Oh, and until Cass figures it out, the comments are stuck in “Administrator Approval” mode, meaning they get submitted but don’t actually post until we approve them. Don’t let that deter you from commenting! We love you!)
