Matt’s not here this week, so Chris is joined by special guest cohost Chris Rohling for quite possibly our Christmasy-est non-Christmas special ever! Longtime friend of the show Jeff Parker joins us this week for a holly jolly deep dive into a story he wrote 12 years ago: “Yes, Virginia, There Is a Santron.” We talk about trying to make Gravity happen, working backwards from an ending, and of course, the magic of Christmas!
Our pal and fellow Garfield Gathering attendee Daniel Kibblesmith joins us on this show this week to talk about his new book, Santa’s Husband, his upcoming run on Quantum and Woody, and much more! Plus: You know we go in depth on Doomsday Clock, right? We do.
Our good friend and resident werewolf expert Kel McDonald is back this week to talk about her new project, “You Are the Chosen One,” worldbuilding, smooching monsters, the smells of medieval fiction, getting metatextual, Buffy, TV show title cards and much more! Plus, Chris and Matt answer one of your listener questions!
The publishers of The Devastator are back to talk about their new Wet Hot American Summer Fantasy Camp RPG! We get into it with them about game design, appealing to fans of both the movie and gaming, Geoffrey’s near-unbelievable bio, character creation, getting the blessing of the Wet Hot crew, preferred classes, fighting over who gets to be a can of vegetables, and much more! Plus, we take a listener question from Tumblr!
Yes, it’s November, but we’re making up for lost time and catching up on our story-ranking specials! So I named this one for the first one we missed. Check back before the end of the month for October’s, then another two in December!
On our annual Halloween episode, Hector Plasm writer Benito Cereno joins us to talk about your listener-submitted Ajax Dreams! We also talk about horror movies, Carman, the Christian rap(?) group DC Talk, our own nightmares and a whole lot more!
We’re spookily excited to welcome Tini Howard, writer of the new Hack Slash: Resurrection series, back to the show! Also, Chris is back! And we haven’t missed a step, because we’re talking about inscribed weapons, horror/comedy, the terror of ladder matches, unsung slasher movies, enjoying the sensation of being scared, and much more! Plus, we finally return to raking characters on the Panel President list!
