It would have been nice if you'd given any clear indication of what your product actually contains, instead of just loose generalizations about the kind of thing it talks about. I know you don't want to give your work away for free, but if your book contains 50 tables you could have read us 2 of them just to present a sample of the quality of the work.

It's a work-in-progress. Aside from Peter's chapter-list outline and research notes, "loose generalizations" is all of the book that exists.

Well, that was fun

I thought you weren't going to be listening to us any more, because we wasted your time with RPG news in our RPG news podcast, and our sketches were cringey and annoying? ;)

Well those objections remain, but your clickbaity title managed to sucker me in one more time. Charlie Brown will stop believing Lucy about the football eventually, but his hope springs eternal, and I say that's a strength rather than a weakness, all evidence to the contrary notwithstanding.

I beg you to stop listening to our podcast. You’re only torturing yourself.
 


ART!

Thoroughly enjoyed this ep! It seemed more packed with RPG news than usual, and I mean that in a good way. Peter's project sounds like something I would use, so please keep us posted on its progress.

You asked for 100th episode comments, and the site I found for the show, to leave a comment, wanted me to download the Podbean app before I could leave a comment, and I already have podcast apps I like, so I'll comment here:

MUTRN is probably my favorite RPG podcast - not just "rpg news podcast"! Each new episode gets downloaded and moved near the top of my "to listen to" podcasts episodes on any subject. I think it helps that you have discrete segments, so if I'm not particularly interested in a certain topic or guest, it's easy to skip forward.
Anyway, keep up the great work, and congratulations!
