Bonus Episode 8 – 2016 New Year’s Resolutions


Welcome to the third and – at least for now – final part of the Starting a Podcast series. In the first and second posts, I covered mostly behind-the-scenes processes – decisions that you had to make to get some idea of what your podcast was even going to be, […]

Starting a Podcast, Part 3: Production

Welcome to part 2 of the Starting a Podcast series. In the last post, I laid out the process we went through in the Conception phase of the podcast. This post assumes you’ve got your concept and that you’re ready to start getting down to the technical aspects of your […]

Starting a Podcast, Part 2: Preparation

  I listen to a lot of podcasts in addition to being on one, and one of the most common questions that every podcast gets asked is “how do you start a podcast?” While I can’t speak for everybody else out there, this is the process Grant and I went […]

Download this episode (right click and save) Grant and Peter are back at it with part three of our Historical Heresies series. This time, we introduce a major competitor to Christianity in the Western Roman Empire, and a particularly interesting (read: complex and imaginative) Gnostic tradition: Manichaeism! We also provide […]

Episode 76 – Manichaeism (Historical Heresies, Part 3)


This is going to be another short one, because it’s a very busy time of year (“hustle and bustle” translates to “chaos, pandemonium, and/or anarchy” when you work in retail) but I’d be remiss if I didn’t wish you all Merry Christmas! Also, while I’ve got you here: Grant and […]

Merry Christmas!



Download this episode (right click and save) It’s a shorter episode this week, due to recording right after Thanksgiving and Grant (and the rest of his household) being very sick. Still, that doesn’t stop us from plugging our Bodhana Group fundraiser before getting into our main topic: Group management! We talk […]

Episode 75 – Group Management


The semester ends this week, and as a result, I’ve been spending a lot of quality time with my keyboard. Between this blog post and the last of the stuff I need to do for school, by the end of the night, I’ll have composed something like 3,000 words. Good […]

Thanksgiving Turkey-Cat
It’s going to be a short blog post this week – Thanksgiving is on Thursday, and that means a lot of traveling and feasting for a lot of us. Because my wife and I have to hit two families, I don’t get a chance to do much (usually any) gaming […]

Episode 73 – Our Gaming Curriculum (Part 2)


Fallout 4 comes out the day this blog post drops. Finally. I’ve really enjoyed every prior game in the series that released for the PC, and with the one exception of Fallout Tactics (which fell victim to a late, game-breaking bug), I’ve finished all of them at least twice. It […]
