Episode 255: Listener Suggestions

We’re back and we’re listening to the strange voices that whisper to us from beyond the veil. Well, maybe they’re whispering from Twitter and Discord, but we’re not sure that’s any less frightening. At least they’re offering helpful suggestions. Opening oneself up to the dark spirits of Twitter can be a chancy thing.

Listener Suggestions

Late last year, we used Discord and Twitter to ask our listeners what kinds of things they’d like to hear us discuss. The response was overwhelming and we now have a massive list of possible topics. Although these suggestions were exceptional, there are a good number we’d struggle to turn into complete episodes. Rather than ignore these, we’ve decided to go through the replies and see what we can address succinctly.

We barely scratched the surface of the suggestions this time. As a result, we plan to revisit this list again soon in a follow-up episode.

Please do let us know if you have any suggestions of your own. We are always hungry for ideas. And cheese. But mostly ideas.

Thank you to Alixo, R’lyeh Scary and PTroilus on our Discord server for the topics we discuss in this episode.

Things we mention in this episode include:

    Depending on where one lives, it can be almost impossible to find a gaming group. You really take things for granted, I think, given how centrally located you all are in the hobby. Scott should remember how hard it was for him when he moved many years ago, which lead to a ten year hiatus. Despite the “ease” of doing things online today, it can still be very very difficult to get people interested, keep them from flaking out, etc. I have been unsuccessful for years now, which has been very sad. There are no clubs near me, no game stores, no conventions. And as one gets older, it gets ever more difficult to make new friends. It must help to be a gaming celebrity.

      And episode 13 is excellent, albeit slightly shorter than the others. It was the final in a holy trinity of episodes on corruption (10), insanity (11), and the Cthulhu mythos. The early episodes are all gold, often much much better than the recent ones, if just less polished. The early albums are always the best.
