SORRY FOR THE LATE PODCAST!  Getting back from Gen Con took a lot out of me and it took me awhile to get back into the swing of things.  In this episode, I recap my Gen Con adventures, we make fun of some kickstarter videos, and then we do a comparison of Flick Em Up and the brand new Flick Em Up Dead of Winter.

If you were hoping to hear about my Origins trip....you'll have to wait until next time.  However, before I left, I managed to sit down with the amazing writer Bruce Cordell from Monte Cook Games to talk about his recent novel Myth of the Maker, his RPG work, and much more!  I hope you enjoy it, and we'll be back to a regular episode next time!
